If you are considering a denture, you might be wondering about the different options to choose from. What will work best for you? Which one should you choose? These are all great questions and Dr. Nidhi Sikka of Sikka Dental in San Jose, CA, can help you choose a great denture that will enhance your smile.
You might need a new denture if you have missing or damaged teeth, or if you’ve worn a denture for a long time. Modern denture materials can provide a denture that looks natural and helps you enjoy the foods you love. The right new denture can restore your confidence too.
A full denture is a great choice if you want to replace an entire upper or lower arch of teeth. If you need a full denture, you can choose from:
An immediate denture is delivered immediately after your teeth are removed. This type of denture has the advantage of you leaving the office with a full set of teeth. After the area has healed completely, a second permanent denture will be made.
A conventional denture is created and placed over healed tissue after 6 to 8 weeks. Conventional dentures are great because you only have to become accustomed to one denture.
A partial denture is a choice to make if you only want to replace a few teeth and not an entire arch. If you need a partial denture, you can choose from:
- A transitional partial denture is a great choice if you want to move on to dental implants and don’t want to live without teeth. Transitional partial dentures are a temporary choice and are often less expensive
- A removable partial denture is a perfect choice if you don’t want implants later. Removable partial dentures are made of strong, sturdy materials that will last
