Types of Dentures

Losing your natural teeth can be emotional and distressing. But with new dental technologies, you can have high-quality dentures that fit comfortably and look good. There are two kinds of fabricated dentures.

Partial Denture: similar to a dental bridge, a partial denture replaces several missing teeth.

Partial dentures are best for people who still have some of their own teeth. They use a cast framework and molded teeth that attach to natural teeth for support. Dental implants are sometimes used to anchor partial dentures. A denture secured with dental implants helps considerably in preventing bone loss.

Full Dentures: used to replace all of a person’s upper or lower arch of teeth.

Complete dentures replace a full row of top or bottom teeth. Upper dentures include gum-coloured acrylic and cover the roof of the mouth and bottom dentures curve in the shape of a horseshoe, to give space for the tongue so you can properly eat and talk.

Implant Dentures: permanently attached to the jaw using several dental implants, implant secured dentures provide the highest rate of patient satisfaction- and a stable solution.

There are several types of dentures that we offer in our office. We will thoroughly assess your oral health during a comprehensive exam, discuss your personal concerns and help you choose the type of denture that is right for you and your budget.

Whenever possible, we will recommend securing your denture or partial denture with dental implants. Using dental implants to secure an appliance such as a dental bridge affords several key dental health benefits:

  • Reduced bone loss in the jaw
  • Secure, stable fit
  • Patients can eat and speak normally
  • No need for daily adhesives and concerns over slippage

Denture Materials and Maintenance

Denture teeth are made of either plastic or porcelain. Regular visits with your dentist will help make for a longer-lasting product. We can make sure they continue to fit comfortably and stay in good condition. However, just like regular teeth, dentures will have natural wear and your dentist will recommend when it’s time to replace or reline them.

Homecare is also important in the longevity of your dentures. Find out from the experts at Higson Dental Group how to best maintain and clean your dentures on your own. We can also help you in the denture selection process.

Dentures & Partials: What to Expect

Dentures are custom designed to your mouth for optimal comfort and function. We help patients create a denture that not only looks like natural teeth, but fits comfortably and securely so they may speak and eat with confidence.

If patients choose to receive dental implant secured dentures, our Grande Prairie denture “near me” team will help coordinate the phases of treatment.

How Much do Dentures Cost?

There are many different types of dentures and costs will vary depending on type. They can range from $1000 to $6000 depending on the health of the current teeth, how many need to be pulled, if partial or full dentures needed, and type of denture material used.

At Higson Dental, we discuss cost and treatment factors with you before starting your denture process so there are no surprises. Keep in mind that partial denture costs are different than a full arch of upper or lower dentures and costs of a complete set of dentures are different too. Below are additional denture cost factors to consider:

  • cost of extractions if needed
  • cost of temporary or “immediate” dentures
  • cost of follow up appointments for adjustments
