Dentures Q & A

What are dentures?

In today’s modern world of dentistry, there are many different solutions to replace missing teeth. Dentures, perhaps one of the most well-known and widely used methods, are an excellent option for people seeking to restore their bright smiles and regain their function. 

While there are many different kinds of dentures, they function in similar ways. Dentures are a set of prosthetic teeth that are fixed to a gum-like base. Dentures can replace a full arch of missing teeth or just several missing teeth. When worn, dentures restore lost function and dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. 

What kinds of dentures are available?

Dentures come in many different shapes and styles, each designed for a slightly different situation. 

Full dentures

Full dentures are used to replace a full arch of teeth. This is the most commonly used type of denture. 

Partial dentures

As its name implies, partial dentures are designed to replace several missing teeth, fitting in perfectly with your existing teeth to create a seamless appearance. 

Implant dentures

Implant dentures, the most popular of which is All-on-4® treatment, combine dental implants and denture technologies to create a strong and effective tooth replacement solution when numerous teeth are missing. Just For Your Smile uses guided implants to minimize pain during the implant procedure and ensure shorter recovery times.
