Dentures Q & A

What are the benefits of dentures?

Dentures contain several false teeth that are grounded to a flesh-colored acrylic base, which is designed to fit snugly over your gums where you’re missing teeth. You can get partial dentures to restore part of your arch if you’re missing several teeth in a row, or a full set of dentures if you need to replace one or both arches entirely.

In any case, a modern, personalized set of dentures is beneficial because it can:

  • Prevent bone and tissue loss
  • Give you confidence with your smile
  • Help you chew, swallow, and speak normally

Dentures have come a long way over the years. Whether you’re new to dentures or need to replace an old set, the dedicated team at Arizona Advanced Dental can help. 

Which type of dentures do I need?

Arizona Advanced Dental proudly offers comprehensive denture care, so you can get fitted for comfortable, natural-looking partial or full dentures. Below are short descriptions of some of the most commonly requested dentures.

Partial dentures

Partial dentures are false teeth attached to the metal framework. This frame can be either bonded to your surrounding teeth — an alternative to bridges — or serve as a removable dental device.

Full dentures

Full or conventional dentures are fitted to your mouth if all of your teeth are missing or need to be removed. These dentures are removable and generally stay in place with a specialized adhesive solution.

Implant-supported dentures

You may also be a candidate for implant-supported dentures offered at Arizona Advanced Dental. As long as you have enough bone and gum tissue, Dr. Clifford or Dr. Cutler can strategically place implants in your mouth to serve as anchors for partial or full dentures. Implants help keep your dentures secure by snapping them into place. 

How long do dentures last?

Over time, your gums and jaws are going to change shape, so you’re going to need to continue coming back into Arizona Advanced Dental for routine checkups and denture adjustments. In general, partial and full dentures last about 5-8 years, although your set may certainly last longer, depending on your gum health.
