Dentures are false teeth made from tooth-colored materials like porcelain, resin, acrylic, or nylon. These prosthetics are designed to look and function just like natural teeth.

In most cases, dentures are removable; however, when used in conjunction with dental implants, we can provide a more permanent solution to missing teeth.

What Are the Benefits of Dentures?

Dentures can:

  • Restore your smile.
  • Help you speak and eat normally.
  • Enhance your confidence and self-esteem.
  • Provide support for the cheeks and lips.

When to Use Dentures vs. Implants

Both dentures and implants are excellent solutions to restore an incomplete smile. However, some factors might steer you to choose one over the other:

  • Jawbone Density – If you don’t have enough bone mass to support an implant, you might choose to go with dentures instead.
  • Price – Dentures are much less expensive than implants. If you are trying to restore your teeth on a budget, you can’t go wrong with dentures.
  • Surgery – Traditional dentures do not require surgery. This is often a selling point for many patients with dental anxiety or medical conditions that prevent them from undergoing a dental implant procedure.

What Are the Different Types of Dentures?

Dentures are not one-size-fits-all. Different designs serve different purposes. Depending on your needs, your dentist may recommend any of the following:

Complete Dentures

These are the traditional dentures you probably envision when you think about fake teeth. Complete dentures replace all the missing teeth in either the top or bottom row. These dentures sit on top of the gums and are fully removable.

Partial Dentures

As the name implies, partial dentures are used when the patient still has some of their natural teeth remaining on the upper or lower jaw.

These prosthetics come with the same pink-colored base as traditional dentures, but they are held together by two metal pieces attached to existing teeth.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are a sturdier alternative to traditional removable dentures. In this case, your dentist will place several implants to anchor the dentures to your gumline.

Modern implant-supported dentures come with a locator that snaps into the implant. This means you can still remove the dentures when you want, but you won’t have to worry about them becoming loose.

What to Expect from Dentures

Regular dental examinations are important even if you no longer have any of your natural teeth, they allow us to detect gum disease and other oral health problems as soon as possible.

Over time, dentures will need to be replaced or relined in order to maintain jaw alignment.

“I’m very glad I discovered Dr. Ferber. I came to him because I had a multitude of dental problems. The teeth were just a disaster, and I was totally embarrassed to smile. I kept replacing teeth and going in for crowns and root canals. Finally, I decided I wanted to go for a full-mouth implant.  I wish I had done this many years ago. The results are just exemplary. If you’re suffering like I was for many, many years, do not hesitate.”

“People ask me all the time where I got my new smile done and I tell them Dr. Ferber. Before I got the work done, I didn’t feel very confident. I didn’t want anyone to see me smile. And now, I love to smile, and I get so many compliments on my smile. It was an easy, painless experience. The staff was great, and the price was right.”


“Dr. Ferber really knows his stuff. Since I had my teeth really done over, I have my smile back. And I have my giggle back! I would say that anybody questioning what they should do, they should come here. The whole team treats you like you’re family. They’re warm and they care.”

“Your staff is very professional and friendly, as always. Who looks forward to going to the dentist?!?! Not many. But your office makes it seem less of a disagreeable task. Don’t misunderstand, I still don’t like going. But if I have to, I’m glad I go to your practice!”
