Types of Dentures
There are two main types of dentures: complete and partial. The one you need will depend on if you need to replace only a select number of missing teeth or your entire set. Here are more specific details about these two types of dentures:
Also known as full dentures, they are full-coverage prosthetic devices used to replace a complete arch of missing teeth. These type of dentures are precisely designed to fit the mouth of the person who uses them. Complete dentures are usually recommended when a person has a medical status that contraindicates surgery or has a big damage in the mouth structure. When a person has lost intraoral tissue, complete dentures can not only replace teeth, but also fill in the missing tissue.
These are designed to replace only a specific number of missing teeth. This type of denture is commonly used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. Partial dentures are removable, but there is also a type of permanent partial denture known as a fixed bridge. This denture is the right one if what you want is to keep your remaining teeth in their place.

Other of the aspects you'll need to consider when choosing dentures is the color. There are many different shades of white to choose. You may think that the best option is choosing the whitest and brightest, but what you need is to find the denture that provides a natural appearance to your mouth. You need to take on consideration your skin complexion and choose the shade of white that looks more natural in you.
To choose the color of your denture, your dentist will provide you a denture shade chart. When you're looking at the chart, cover up the samples so you're looking at one at a time. The reason of this is because one shade can look yellow next to another, but viewing one at a time, it will have a more natural appearance. If you're getting a partial denture, the only option is to choose the shade more similar to your natural teeth.
Once you've got dentures, it's important to take care of them and identify if there's any problem. These are the most common issues that can arise with your dentures:
- Pain. It may take a time to get used to your dentures, but if after a while you keep feeling pain at wearing, inserting, or removing your denture, then it may have imperfections.
- Ill-fitting dentures. If your dentures don't stay in the place they're supposed to, then you have a problem. This can cause pain and inflammation on your mouth, as well as letting food trapped between gums and dentures.
In any of these cases, you must never try to repair your dentures by yourself. If the dentures don't fit or make you feel pain, take them to your dentist immediately so they can be adjusted.
