Traditional vs. Implant-Supported Dentures

Traditional dentures are probably what you picture when you think of dentures or false teeth. They fit over your gums and are held in place by suction and usually some type of adhesive, like denture cream. They’ve improved significantly in recent years, making them feel and function more like the real thing. At River Oaks Dental, we offer both full-arch dentures and partial dentures to suit your needs. 

Full-arch dentures are used to replace a full arch of teeth. You’ll be given a complete set of full dentures. Partial dentures are an option if you have several healthy teeth remaining. This type of denture will fill in the large gaps in your smile. 

However, traditional dentures tend to slip, which can lead to some pretty embarrassing situations. This is why more people than ever are choosing to get implant-supported dentures instead. Implant-supported dentures, unlike traditional dentures, won’t slip or move around. 

Plus, because implants are placed in your jaw, they will help your bone to stay strong and full, helping you to avoid the “sunken-in” look that sometimes results from wearing traditional dentures. Best of all: you don’t have to remove your dentures to clean them. Just brush and floss like normal!

During your consultation at our Decatur dental office, we’ll determine which option is right for you. If you decide on dental implants, Dr. Parker works with a specialist who can place the implants for you. Then you’ll return to our office to have your dentures placed onto your implants, giving you a full set of beautiful, fully-functional teeth.
