What Are the Benefits of Dentures?

Our teeth suffer wear and tear throughout our lives, which can unfortunately result in losing one or more teeth. Dentures have long been the most common dental appliance used to replace them. With advances in dental appliances, traditional dentures are no longer the only choice in replacing lost teeth. With dentures, overdentures, and hybrid All-on-Four dentures, Dr. Amin Samadian has all the options you need for the right kind of dentures for you.

How Do Dentures Work?

Dentures can replace any missing teeth you may have without surgery, but more than that, they can improve your bite alignment, your ability to chew and speak, and can even enhance the structure of your face to improve your confidence and smile. Dentures can be partial or complete, depending on the number of teeth you’re replacing and the locations of those gaps. In some cases, dentures may require implant supports or may be fitted with an acrylic plate disguised as your gum line to fit over your natural gums. With sufficiently healthy gum tissue and structure soundness of your jawbone, dentures may be an ideal solution to replace missing teeth and repair your smile.

Overdentures, or implant-supported dentures, snap onto dental implants placed in the bone for greater support. Missing teeth can do more than lead to migration of adjacent teeth. Bone loss is a very real concern, so Dr. Samadian often recommends overdentures to preserve the bone around missing teeth.

All-on-Four treatment provides a solution for patients missing a great number of teeth. Four dental implants are placed in the arch on which a new dental appliance is affixed to replace all of your upper or lower teeth. This offers patients a single prosthetic with an attractive, symmetrical, and color matched set of teeth for greater stability and a pleasing smile.

Am I a Good Candidate?

Candidates for dentures generally have healthy gums and solid jawbone support that don’t require additional procedures to support the acrylic plate that affixes dentures to your natural gums. Implant-supported dentures or the All-on-Four procedures may be a better fit for patients concerned about the loss of gum tissue and jawbone. If you’re unsure which option provides your best outcome, a consultation with Dr. Samadian can give you all the answers you need. 

What Are the Benefits of Dentures?

Prevent shifting and crowding of existing teeth. When your mouth has gaps between teeth, the ones remaining don’t always stay in their expected position. This can make it harder to chew, harder to speak, and can cause jaw or mouth pain as well as negatively impact your smile. Overdentures and All-on-Four dental appliances prevent your natural teeth from shifting as the dental implants keep your gums and jawbone from deteriorating.

Overdentures and All-on-Four both preserve bone through implant supports. Missing teeth give the bone nothing to adhere to, which can lead to resorption and loss of bone. The implants used for overdentures and All-on-Four correction specifically save your bone density as well as prevent gum recession. Not only do you have teeth filling the gaps for easier chewing and speaking, you maintain good bone structure for the long-term.

Overdentures and All-on-Four remove the need for denture adhesive. Far more stable than traditional dentures, overdentures snap into place on the implant supports. Overdentures can be removed for cleaning and care, and are far less likely to come loose than adhesive-affixed appliances. All-on-Four prosthetics act more like your natural teeth in that they aren’t removable, and are a great way to restore your teeth, particularly if you’re missing many teeth, or your gaps stretch over multiple teeth.

Dentures provide support and structure for your jaw and cheeks. With tooth loss comes change to the shape of your jaw and cheeks, which can prematurely age you. With dentures, you can keep your strong profile and rounded cheeks. That’s a reason to smile.
