Dentures Q&A

What are dentures?

Dentures are a tooth replacement option that can be removed for cleaning or during sleep. They are a popular choice among men and women who’ve lost most or all of their teeth and want to restore their smile. 

There are two types of dentures: full dentures and partial dentures. Full dentures replace all of your natural teeth, while partials only fill in the gaps where multiple teeth are missing. 

Dentures are crafted from flesh-colored plastic material and multiple false teeth. The plastic base fits over your gums, and the entire device can be removed. Advancements in dental technology have led to dentures that are far more attractive and comfortable than in years past. 

Why choose dentures?

People choose dentures for a number of reasons. Cost is a primary consideration, and dentures are more affordable than permanent dental implants. That said, implants last a lifetime, while dentures eventually need to be replaced, so the cost advantage might fade in the long run. 

Dentures are also a good choice for men and women who’ve experienced significant bone loss. Without adequate bone to support the post portion of a dental implant, the implant cannot properly fuse in place. 

Some men and women have health conditions that make them poor candidates for any type of surgery, including oral procedures. This can make dentures a better option than implants. 

What is it like to wear dentures?

Not so long ago, wearing dentures was not a comfortable experience. The materials and technology used to manufacture dentures did not support a great fit, so areas of the dentures would rub against the surface of your gums and other soft tissues. 

Poorly fitting dentures would also shift within your mouth, making it difficult to eat or speak without fear of your dentures sliding out of place or even worse, coming out of your mouth entirely. 

Today, these concerns are no longer a problem. Dr. Beckford creates dentures that not only look amazing, but are comfortable to wear and stay in place no matter your daily routines.
