What are the different types of dentures?
We offer several different kinds of cosmetic dentures in Charleston to meet a range of needs:
Implant-supported dentures offer the highest level of stability and comfort. These full or partial dentures attach directly to dental implants, which are titanium posts surgically implanted in the jawbone. One of the greatest benefits of implant-supported dentures is that they will not slip out of place while you are eating or speaking. Implant-supported dentures can also preserve the bone structure of the mouth, which can become weakened in the absence of tooth roots.
Traditional dentures are intended to replace all teeth within an arch. They are made of strong, long-lasting materials that provide a natural appearance. Traditional dentures rest upon the gums, held in place with a mild adhesive.
Partial dentures, also called dental bridges, replace one or more missing teeth, rather than an entire arch. Partials are traditionally clasped to fixed crowns on adjacent natural teeth, or attached to a dental implant.
