The Different Types of Dentures
- Full Denture – A full denture is typically recommended for people who have lost most or all of their natural teeth. This type of denture is a removable appliance that is custom-made to fit your mouth. It is either made of acrylic or chrome and is designed to look and function like natural teeth.
- Partial Denture – A partial denture is a good option if you are missing some of your natural teeth but still have some remaining. It is designed to fill in the gaps created by missing teeth and is held in place by metal clasps that attach to your remaining natural teeth.
- Over Denture – Also known as implant-retained denture, this type of denture fits over remaining natural teeth roots and dental implant. It has attachments that snap into the implant and holds the denture in place. This denture is a good option for those who have lost many teeth but still have some remaining teeth roots and provides a much more stable and secure fit than a traditional removable denture.
- Bar-Over Denture – It is similar to the over denture, but it has a metal bar that fits over the remaining teeth roots or implant and is attached to the denture with special clips. This type is suitable for people with very few or no remaining teeth and needs maximum stability.
