Types of Dentures

When you visit your dentist in Needham for a consultation, we will evaluate your needs and learn about your preferences. Then, we will be able to recommend the type of denture that best fits your circumstances. We are proud to offer partial dentures, full dentures, and implant dentures.

Partial Dentures

If you are missing multiple teeth but your remaining natural ones are still relatively healthy, a partial denture can fill in the empty spaces. It is sort of like a puzzle piece that fits in exactly where it is needed. Most partial dentures consist of an acrylic base, artificial teeth, and small attachments (made of metal or acrylic) to help the prosthetic remain secure during eating and speaking.

Full Dentures

A full denture is designed to replace an entire arch of lost teeth. It remains secure in the mouth with the help of natural suction, though some patients use a mild adhesive for extra security. We carefully design dentures so they rest as comfortably as possible on the gums, and we can periodically adjust your prosthetic so it continues to fit well for several years.

Implant Dentures

Implant dentures are anchored in the jawbone by a number of prosthetic tooth roots (dental implants). They tend to be much more secure than traditional forms of tooth replacement. They can also prevent jawbone deterioration and have the potential to last for 10 years or longer. Many patients who are frustrated with their regular dentures choose to upgrade to implant dentures.
