Dentures & Partial Dentures Q & A

What types of dentures are available?

At Woodbury Family Dentistry, you’re offered a variety of options when it comes to dentures. All products meet the highest quality standards. Your choices include:

  • Immediate dentures, available right away to replace missing teeth
  • Conventional dentures that are customized to your smile
  • Partial dentures to replace a few missing teeth

Dr. Tran works closely with you to determine the exact denture option that works best for your needs. She evaluates your smile goals, gum health, and cosmetic interests to find the right option for you.

What is the benefit of immediate dentures?

The best candidates for immediate dentures have lost their teeth as a result of injury, decay, or illness. You might still need full, conventional dentures, but immediate dentures can be placed quickly so you can still chew, speak, and smile without much of a change.

Immediate dentures do need to be realigned regularly as they’re not customized to your smile. Realigning is important because it helps ensure a comfortable, precise fit as your mouth heals from the loss of your natural teeth.

Should I get partial dentures?

Dentures replace a full row of missing teeth. Partial dentures are a good option if you’re missing just a few teeth and are not ready for implants. Partial dentures are built on a metal framework to provide sturdy support for chewing. The metal support allows the dentures to fit firmly into place without the use of denture adhesives.

Some people will opt for acrylic partial dentures, which are more affordable. Unfortunately, they require frequent replacement. They’re typically used to replace missing front teeth and are a temporary solution as you wait to get permanent partials or implants.

How do I care for dentures?

You should still follow good hygiene practices that include brushing your gums, tongue, and the roof of your mouth. This discourages the development of plaque that can negatively affect your soft tissue and underlying bone structure.

Brush your dentures daily as well. When they’re removed, rinse them with warm water and use a soft toothbrush. Store your dentures safely covered in water when you aren’t wearing them.
