Dentures and Partial Dentures

Scottsdale, AZ

Dentures are one of several solutions for replacing missing teeth. At Scottsdale Family Smiles, our patients often ask about dentures and how this option may suit their unique needs. As with any dental solution, there are positives and negatives to wearing dentures and it is ultimately up to our patients to decide which option best suits their lifestyles.

The 3 Types of Dentures

There are three main types of dentures, which include:

Temporary Dentures

This type is used when one of our patients is undergoing a cosmetic procedure to replace a missing tooth. Temporary dentures ensure that the patient can maintain a natural-looking smile as they wait for bridge or implant completion.

Partial Dentures

When only a few teeth are missing, Scottsdale Family Smiles can create partial dentures. Unlike full denture sets, a partial is held in place by a plastic base that matches the color of your gums. As long as you have natural teeth in place, a partial can attach easily without coming loose.

Complete Denture

Complete dentures replace all of a Scottsdale-area patient’s teeth. They’re a natural-looking solution for missing teeth and many of our patients at Scottsdale Family Smiles choose dentures for their painlessness, affordability, and pleasant appearance.

Benefits of Dentures

Patients in and around Scottsdale, AZ can benefit from wearing dentures in a number of ways. This option for tooth replacement is non-invasive, requires no surgery, and can be provided with relative speed and ease. They’re affordable, easy to fit, and give our patients the confidence of having a full set of teeth.

Negatives of Dentures

Dentures do not feel as natural in the patient’s mouth as some of our other cosmetic options. They also require a degree of maintenance and care. Though they’re more secure than ever before, they can still take some getting used to, which is why many patients choose more permanent cosmetic procedures instead.

Alternative Options

Though dentures are still very common, there are several procedures that patients may get more of a benefit from. Depending on the nature and degree of your tooth loss, there may be a variety of different options available for you.

If you live in the Scottsdale area and you’d like to learn more about your cosmetic and restorative dental options, please feel free to reach out to our Scottsdale Family Smiles office and schedule a consultation. Our team can present you with your options and explain the pros and cons of each.

How Do I Care for My Dentures?

Denture care is relatively simple. Every night, you should remove your dentures, rinse them thoroughly, then use a denture brush to clean them. Rinse one more time and soak them overnight in your denture solution before placing them back into your mouth in the morning.
