Dentures in Paducah, KY

Dentures are designed to replace missing teeth and can be taken out and put back into your mouth. While dentures take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as one’s natural teeth, today’s dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.

There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. Your doctor for dentures will help you choose the type of denture that is best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced and the cost involved.

Full or Complete Dentures

Full dentures are used to replace teeth after they have all been lost or removed. The teeth are usually removed due to gum disease or decay. Dentures are used to replace missing teeth and can be either conventional or immediate. Conventional dentures are usually placed after all of the teeth have been removed and the gums have begun to heal, usually after about 12 weeks. Immediate dentures are placed immediately after the teeth have been removed. These appliances provided by doctors for dentures allow the patient to replace missing teeth during the healing process but will most likely need to be realigned or redesigned after healing is complete, as the gums will shift and change during this time.

Partial Denture

Partial dentures are devices that are used when one or more natural teeth remain healthy in the upper or lower jaw. They are designed to fit around the remaining healthy teeth and can be either removable or fixed. Removable partial dentures can be removed from the mouth for cleaning or eating. A fixed partial denture accomplishes the same result as a removable partial denture, except that it is cemented into place using the adjacent teeth for support and is usually called a bridge.
