Dentures are removable prosthetic devices that are used to replace sets of missing teeth and restore your smile. If you have lost all of your natural teeth from decay, gum disease, or injury, dentures are a great option that dentists recommend that can help you comfortably eat and speak normally again.
Conventional dentures are a removable set of false teeth that are customized to fit your mouth. Previously, these were the default option for those in need of multiple teeth replacement. However, these days there are several types of dentures available that serve as a more comfortable and easy-care alternative:
Partial dentures are removable dentures that fit over a small number of remaining teeth. They are designed to restore normal function over the remaining natural teeth.
Conventional, full dentures are a removable set of false teeth that are customized to fit your mouth. In the past, these were the default option for those in need of multiple teeth replacement.
Also known as a “snap-on denture,” an overdenture is a denture that is held in place by a dental implant. They are a more stable denture option for missing teeth and can last for a long time with proper dental care.
Essentially, hybrid dentures are a cross between traditional dentures and fixed dental bridges. Hybrid dentures are a more permanent dental fix, as they are screwed on and fixed to pre-existing dental implants for support.
