If you are researching about dentures to find the right ones for your teeth, then this article can help you. There are a few types of dentures that you should know about to make an informed decision. We highly recommend you get treated in an Indian clinic instead of your home country. In fact, some of the world’s best dentures cost at about a fraction of the price in a country like India.
Types of Dentures
1. Upper Dentures
Upper dentures, as the name suggests, are dentures designed for your upper teeth. If your upper jaw is missing some teeth, then you should go for upper dentures. The cost of upper dentures in India and Mexico are at a fraction of the price you would get in your home country, so be sure to check with our consultants to see how much savings you’re making.
These dentures are designed to sit over the bumps and are anchored in their position by using dental implants. Overdentures can be placed on the lower jaw and/or upper jaw, depending on your needs. The best part about overdentures is that they can be removed, making it easier to carry out routine maintenance.
3. Immediate Dentures
Immediate dentures are different than full dentures in that, they are installed the same day as the remaining teeth are removed. In order to make this possible, your dentist will take several measurements and models to get an accurate impression of your teeth.
4. Snap-in Dentures
Snap-dentures are used to bring more stability to the teeth. They are secured in place by using dental implants or anchored onto existing teeth. Snap-in dentures are unique because the locater attachments are attached to the denture’s tissue side. This makes them convenient since the dentures can be removed, hence the term snap-in dentures.
Snap-in dentures are only possible on a patient who has strong bone structure to support implants.
5. Full Dentures
Full dentures completely replace the entire set of a person’s teeth. They snugly sit over the gums, in contrast to dental bridges that are installed over existing teeth instead. The dental process takes a long time, to the tune of over 8 to 12 weeks after the patient’s real teeth have been removed. This is to allow the gums to properly heal to provide support to the new dentures.
The long time frames are inconvenient for patients and orthodontists alike, plus it is overly expensive. The best dentures cost at a fraction of the price of a traditional full set.
The biggest advantage with immediate dentures is that patients don’t have to go toothless during the healing period or while new dentures are being made.
6. Custom Dentures
Custom dentures are used by patient who wants to invest in a more natural looking smile. Plus they can add a lot of bells and whistles to their dentures, such as gold or brass plates for a unique aesthetic appeal. In many cases, custom dentures are designed to fit a particular patient’s smile, making it extremely natural.
