Who’s a Good Candidate for Dentures?
Even with advancements in other types of tooth replacement options, dentures may be the best option for those who suffer from missing teeth. You might be a good candidate for dentures if:
- You are missing the majority of your teeth—usually, a person who only has a single missing tooth is not a good candidate for dentures
- You do not have enough healthy teeth to support the placement of a dental bridge
- Your bone is weak or damaged, and therefore cannot support a dental implant
- Other dental tooth replacement options are not an option
The Benefits of Dentures
Different types of dentures might work better for different people. For example, there are both partial and full dentures. Partial dentures are for people who have at least one or more secure teeth in the upper or lower jaw. The partial denture fills the space created by the missing teeth and helps to protect these teeth from further damage.
Complete dentures are for those who have lost all of their teeth. These dentures are removable.
Modern dentures are designed to be comfortable and look great—two benefits of choosing to wear them. Dentures allow you to eat all of your favorite foods, and can also help to report any speech issues that are common with missing teeth. For those with some remaining teeth, dentures prevent wear and tear on remaining teeth. And of course, dentures are removable, which allows for easy cleaning and comfort while you sleep.
