What Are the Different Types of Dentures Near Me?

If you are in the process of searching for dentures in Stephens City, VA, there are different types to consider.


Traditional dentures will replace all of your teeth. These dentures sit on top of the gums and are replaced after teeth have been removed. Partial dentures can be used when you still have some of your natural teeth. These dentures have a pink colored base that is attached to a metal piece to hold the dentures in place. The number of missing teeth and their location will affect the comfort and stability of the removable partial denture. The use of dental implants may increase the stability of a removable partial denture, or dental implants maybe be the best solution for replacing missing teeth.

Immediate dentures are placed on the same day teeth are removed but you will typically have to be a strong candidate for these dentures.  Even if you wear full dentures, you will have to practice good dental hygiene. Brush your gums, tongue, and roof of your mouth every morning with a soft-bristled brush before you insert your dentures to stimulate circulation in your tissues and help remove plaque. Immediate dentures will require a reline after some period of time.  Overdentures sit on top of the gums and are held in place with dental implants. They can be placed on the upper or lower jaw depending on your needs.
