Types of Dentures and Their Purpose
There are two main categories of dentures:
- Partial – these are typically composed of a gum-colored plate that holds a number of crowns, however many are necessary to replace your missing teeth.
- Full – these replace entire arches of teeth and are typically implant-supported, giving them remarkable stability, durability, and longevity.
Partial dentures can be an inexpensive option for replacing missing teeth. They, however, have their disadvantages. They tend to lose their shape over time, loosening, and moving around, which can cause irritation. We typically recommend implant-supported dental bridges in this case, which last longer and are esthetically remarkable.
Full dentures are full arches of teeth that are typically anchored by 4-6 dental implants, depending on the procedure and your needs. At Jupiter Dentistry, we use the Prettau bridge in our Teeth Next Day procedure, with results that look spectacular and will continue to do so for a long time to come.
Traditional, or adhesive-bound dentures can lose their shape, they can start to suffer from wear, and this can both cause irritation and affect your appearance. They also don’t look as good, with the crowns appearing unnatural and artificial.
Our Prettau implant-supported bridge, which is a full-arch denture, is made from zirconia. Zirconia is the strongest tooth-colored restorative material currently used in dentistry. Unlike acrylic options, zirconia is less likely to crack, chip, or otherwise be damaged; furthermore, it is stain resistant, helping you enjoy a brighter, younger smile for much longer than alternative treatments.
The procedure is accurate and predictable. You know what results to expect, and we are happy to show you the results other patients in Jupiter have achieved with us. Furthermore, the replacement bridge is strong and durable thanks to the use of dental implants, which themselves can last a lifetime. And, this durability does not interfere with the bridge’s esthetic – the crowns look and feel completely natural and real, as if you never received dental work at all.
