Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

Dentures are a good solution for anyone who has lost all or most of the teeth in their upper or lower arch. Whether you get full dentures or partial dentures depends on how many teeth are missing. We can extract any remaining teeth to make room for full dentures as needed. In some cases, we can anchor your dentures to dental implants for added strength and stability. You’ll need to have healthy gums and sufficient jawbone density in order to receive dental implants; sometimes additional treatments will be needed to prepare the jaw.

What is the Difference Between Partial Dentures and Permanent Dentures?

While both permanent dentures and partial dentures are made of similar acrylic and ceramic materials, there are some important differences between them. Complete dentures are the best option for the most extensive cases of missing teeth in Phoenix. Considered traditional dentures, they include an entire arch of false teeth and are held in place on the gums by suction (or an adhesive if needed). Partial dentures, on the other hand, are used when there are gaps in your smile but you still have plenty of healthy teeth remaining. They are designed to fit into the empty spaces and are secured by a metal clasp.

Benefits of Dentures

Full and Partial Dentures

Getting dentures can improve your appearance; not only do they restore your smile, but they also support your facial muscles. Many patients find that this increases their self-esteem and their overall confidence.

Of course, the most important role of dentures is to perform the daily tasks that you normally rely on your teeth for. You’ll be able to speak normally, and you can enjoy a wide variety of foods that you wouldn’t be able to chew otherwise.

While you will need to replace your dentures eventually, they can last for a decade or longer as long as you follow a proper care routine.

The Advantages of Implant-Retained Dentures


If you’re eligible for dental implants, you can enjoy the many benefits of using them to support your dentures, such as:

  • Longevity: Dental implants can last for 30 years or longer with the right care.
  • Easier Maintenance: When your false teeth are permanently anchored in place by implants, you can brush and floss them as you would your regular teeth.
  • A Stronger Bite: Thanks to the improved stability and chewing power of implants, you’ll be able to eat virtually anything you want.
