Dentures have changed dramatically since your grandparents' time. There are many types of dentures, and you may be familiar with some of them. The most common kind are the full set of dentures which are removed at night for cleaning. Now there are fixed dentures, partial dentures, as well as removable dentures.
You might be wondering which dentures would be the best for you. To make an informed decision about dentures, you need to find the right dentist who can provide you with information, and a recommendation as to what would work for you.

Complete or full dentures are for patients who are missing all of their teeth. Partial removable dentures are for patients who have some missing teeth. Partial fixed dentures are for patients who are missing some teeth but who prefer to have a permanent option. These dentures are also called "implant-supported bridges."
Newer types of dentures now make use of dental implants to anchor them to the jaw. These implant-supported fixed dentures don't slide around in the mouth because they are mounted on implants.
There are also snap-in dentures which snap onto implants, but which can be removed for cleaning. Again, because they make use of implants, these dentures are more stable, they are more comfortable and fit better than conventional dentures. There is less friction on the gums. How do you know which dentures are right for your mouth and your lifestyle?
