Am I a Candidate for Dentures?
If you are a candidate for dental implants, our team will likely recommend a combination solution that includes both dentures and implants. Many patients will end up choosing implant supported bridges and many other variations that will give them a similar combination to treat their issues. If you generally have good oral hygiene, you will likely be a candidate for many forms of dentures.
When it comes to discovering the basic options for dentures in Lansdowne, these can include both partial and full sets. Full sets replace an entire upper or lower arch of teeth while the partial sets are created to replace a number of an incomplete set of teeth on the upper or lower jaw arch.
Standard dentures are removable. The sets are available to those patients who prefer to take out these restorations before eating, drinking, sleeping, or performing oral hygiene routines. These sets often need to be replaced every 7 to 10 years because there will be shifts in the gum line and jawbone. The changes are triggered by the additional loss of teeth and can cause your jawbone to proceed and gums to shrink. This is why Drs. Nguyen and Frames recommend all patients to consider the hybrid versions. The use of dental implants can alleviate the bone and gum loss that leads to shrinkage and denture replacements. When a patient replaces the roots that have been extracted or missing tooth with a titanium post, he or she can eliminate the risk of bone loss as they are evenly distributing the bite
pressure among all teeth. This is why we recommend dental implants whenever possible.
