Pros and Cons of Dentures
When it comes to getting dentures, the dentists at our Roseville office believe that it’s important to understand both the advantages and disadvantages of each dental restoration or treatment before choosing the right treatment option.
The benefits of getting dentures include,
A fast and simple process
Not having to undergo surgery or invasive dentistry
An economical and inexpensive price tag that can fit any budget
If you just want to get a full smile back quickly and without much fuss, dentures may be the right way to restore your tooth loss. However, one drawback of dentures is that they won’t function exactly like real teeth, so they can take some getting used to. Accordingly, it's important that you wear your dentures as much as you can throughout the day in order to get more comfortable with them. It is common for dentures to sometimes move or shift around when speaking or chewing.
Types of Dentures
The type of denture that is right for you will depend on the severity of your tooth loss. If you are missing some teeth but still have some healthy teeth remaining, partial dentures will be the best option. Of course, if you are dealing with total tooth loss then you’ll need to turn to complete dentures to give you back a full smile.
If you’ve had to undergo an extraction to remove decayed or damaged teeth, our dentist will often place immediate dentures so that you still have teeth for the weeks in which your gums are healing. After the gums have fully healed, we can then place your permanent dentures.
Patients who want their dentures to feel more like real teeth may decide to get dental implants, which can be surgically placed into the jawbone to hold your dentures firmly in place so they don’t move around.
