Dentures are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, and are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable. However, there are many denture designs, some which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants.

There are several ways to replace your missing teeth. Your dentist will be able to recommend the best option for you, whether it’s a denture, bridge, or implant. If your dentist does recommend dentures, there are several types of dentures on the market—each made from different materials and serving different purposes. That’s why it’s important to understand what the benefits of the different types are when deciding on the best type for you. Here’s a look at some of the options:

  • Full dentures
  • Partial dentures
  • Temporary dentures
  • Fixed bridge
  • Cantilever bridge
  • Implants
  • Implant-supported fixed dentures
  • Snap-on dentures
