The Four Different Types Of Dentures Explained


Are you in need of new dentures? Do you know anything about dentures or what your options are? This can be confusing for many people and understandably so. After all, most people only get new dentures once or twice during their lifetime, so it's not like they're doing this everyday. In addition, medical research has come up with new dental treatments and options everyday. Some of these new treatments, including implants, have only been available since the early 1990's.

There are four types of dentures available to you. Some are obviously going to be more expensive than others. This is just going to give you a brief overview of what's available to you.

Standard Denture

The standard denture is designed for individuals who have already lost all of their original teeth. These are the types of dentures that have been used for the past few decades, although there have been a few modifications in order to help them fit better and be more comfortable to wear. These standard dentures can be sized by removing some of the back portion of the denture. The only drawback to doing this is that the more that is removed, the less of a seal you'll have in your mouth to hold them in place.

Immediate Dentures

Immediate dentures are not exactly what you would think. They are actually the temporary dentures that patients are fitted with immediately after having their bad teeth extracted. The term "immediate" gives some people the impression that they're getting dentures made for them the same day, as if they were going through a denture drive up window, but that's not the case.

Cu-Sil Dentures

Cu-Sil dentures are not a very good solution for people that have many individually stable, natural teeth. There are actually a lot of problems with this type of denture because of the difficulty of alignment and stability. In many cases, Cu-Sil denture will not work effectively for some people that have no teeth at all to help stabilize the new denture. Ask your dentist more about Cu-Sil dentures and if they are a viable option for you.

Dental Implants

Implants are by far the most expensive denture option available. The cost of a full set of implants can rival a down payment on a middle class home. The reason for this is that they are the most effective denture solution by far. Posts are inserted into the persons jaw and allowed to heal in place. After doing this your dentures can be snapped into place allowing much more stability. Many people with implants have said it's almost like having real teeth again because they can eat almost normally.

As I said before, this is just a brief overview of the types of dentures available to you. You should contact a dentist and ask any additional questions that you may have.
