If you lose your teeth, the best possible treatment is to get a pair of dentures. Dentures are often stereotyped as being clunky, gross, and unstable. The truth is, however, that not only are they a necessary way to function properly after losing your natural teeth, but that the technology has improved substantially over the years. Now, dentures are made of high-quality materials and act and look just like regular teeth, so that you can eat more, speak properly, and smile confidently after just one quick procedure.

Dentures come in a few varieties and styles depending on what you’re looking for. It’s important to know your priorities ahead of time so you can make the best decision. Some options are more stable, but also more expensive, while budget options may have less functionality or be harder to work with. Know your needs, and your dentist will help you find a style that makes and helps you smile.
Traditional dentures use molds to fit the shape of your mouth, and an acrylic base for the teeth that “floats” along the gums. This style is less expensive and doesn’t require as much labor, and can be removed from your mouth at will if you prefer, however they are prone to shifting.
As the name implies, implant dentures are surgically implanted into the jaw on a metal bridge, which holds the dentures in place. This allows for more stability. You have the option of two substyles, one of which can be removed at will and the other of which is fixed.
Screwed or clipped into the mouth with titanium screws, these dentures are the most stable, at the cost of being able to remove them. Their greater strength allows you to eat more food, and they’re also good at keeping your bones healthy.
