Prosthodontics is the dental specialty pertaining to the diagnosis, treatment planning, rehabilitation and maintenance of the oral function, comfort, appearance and health of patients with clinical conditions associated with missing or deficient teeth and their substitution with various restorative options.
Types of Dentures
- Full Dentures
Full dentures are used by those who need to regain the ability to chew solid foods. When your teeth are degraded, it can hurt to eat even the softest of foods. If the teeth cannot be repaired with fillings and too many will need to be replaced, extraction is the only option. But life does not have to change, except for the better. Why should anyone suffer when they eat?
- Implant Dentures
For those who need to have their teeth extracted, implant dentures are a great option. Also, if existing dentures are old and worn, causing them to be ill-fitting, this is their solution. They have a better fit than regular dentures, making them a more comfortable alternative.
- Partial Dentures
When some of the teeth can be saved, but some are beyond repair, then a partial set of dentures is the correct option. There is a choice between the normal dentures and the ones that hook into place. A conversation with your dentist will ensure that you make the right choice.
