Am I a good candidate for dentures?

Whether you’ve lost one or all of your teeth, you may be a good candidate for dentures. We can evaluate the health of your teeth and gums to decide if full or partial dentures are the right choice for you. Dentures may not be right for you if you smoke, have a sensitive gag reflex, or grind and clench your teeth.

What Kind of Denture Is Right for Me?

There are several different types of dentures, and we will take your specific needs into account when deciding which is most appropriate for you.

  • Full dentures are appropriate if you are missing all your teeth.
  • Partial dentures are a good choice if you still have some of your natural teeth.
  • Implant-retained dentures are stabilized by a dental implant that has fused with the jaw bone.
  • Immediate dentures are used for patients who have had teeth extracted and want dentures placed the same day.

There is a lot to consider when having dentures placed at our dental office, and we can help you make the decision that fits your needs, lifestyle and budget. Please contact us, and we will be happy to arrange a consultation to discuss the type of dentures most appropriate for you.
