Dentures are an affordable and reliable way to replace missing teeth. They can help improve not only your appearance but also your ability to speak clearly and eat efficiently. Here are the different types of dentures offered at our office.

Types of Dentures Offered by Kennebec Dental Excellence

Removable Partial Denture: This type of denture is made of a metal framework that uses the surrounding teeth for support. It can be easily removed and put back in place for convenience when cleaning and caring. These dentures can last several years and can be adjusted if needed. They are great when replacing several missing teeth in a row.

Complete denture: A complete denture includes acrylic false teeth and gums to recreate the smile and improve overall appearance while matching with the upper or lower dental arch for a natural look. This type of denture is utilized when you are looking to replace an entire arch or both arches of teeth.

Implant-retained denture: Patients with difficulty keeping their dentures in place with natural suction and some denture adhesives may want to consider the advantages of implant-retained dentures or “all-on-4” dentures. These dentures are much more conservative and use four to six implants along the arch to anchor them in place. Patients can eliminate the need for messy adhesives and uncomfortable shifting of the denture along the gum line. Because implants will be required, your jawbone will need to be in a healthy state with enough bone structure to hold implants in place.
