Why Choose Arrowhead Dentistry for Dentures?

Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

If it's more cost-effective to extract and replace your damaged teeth than it is to repair them, you may be a candidate for dentures. People who have experienced extensive tooth loss in one or both arches can benefit from dentures. You'll require an initial consultation to determine if they are right for you. Most patients with good oral and general health are candidates. Dr. Upton will create a personalized treatment plan to replace your missing teeth.

Types of Dentures

There's no one-size-fits-all solution to treat tooth loss. Dr. Upton will review all your options during your consultation, which may include:

Partial Dentures

 A partial denture can treat consecutive and non-consecutive tooth loss if you still have a few healthy teeth to support the prosthetic. Replacement teeth are fixed to a gum-colored base that has a metal framework, which allows it to clip or clasp onto your teeth to stay in place.

Full Dentures

An entire arch of missing teeth is treated with a full denture. A gum-colored base is made from an impression of your mouth, which will hold prosthetic teeth. It will rest on top of your gums, using suction for stability.

Implant Dentures

 A dental implant is the only treatment to recreate both the tooth root and the crown. When missing several teeth, each tooth isn't replaced individually. Instead, a specific number of dental implants are inserted into your jawbone to support a customized restoration, like a bridge or denture. Your jaw will secure your denture in place, so you'll never have to worry about slipping or irritation. Implant dentures have over a 95% success rate and are proven to last for decades.

The Benefits of Dentures
