 Full Dentures

For those with missing teeth, the power of a radiant smile can be rediscovered with full dentures from Thrive Dental.

What Are Full Dentures?

Full dentures are also known as traditional dentures, conventional dentures or complete dentures. These removable dental appliances are a reliable solution for those who have lost all or most of their teeth. They are designed to replace an entire arch of missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw.

How Do Full Dentures Work?

Full dentures consist of a gum-colored acrylic base that fits over your gums. The upper denture covers the roof of your mouth, while the lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to accommodate your tongue. They are held in place by suction or a thin layer of denture adhesive.

Modern full dentures are designed to be more comfortable and aesthetically pleasing; in fact, modern dentures actually mimic the look and feel of natural teeth.

Benefits of Full Dentures

  • Improved Chewing Ability: Having missing teeth can create obstacles when it comes to chewing. Full dentures allow you to eat a wider variety of foods, so you no longer have to avoid eating those that have caused difficulty while having missing teeth. That’s right, you can eat your favorite foods again!
  • Better Speaking: Due to the tongue’s inability to make contact with teeth, which is relevant for speech articulation, having missing teeth can affect speech. Full dentures help you speak more clearly by filling out the gaps left by missing
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Full dentures restore your smile, giving you a youthful and vibrant look.
  • Facial Support: Missing teeth, especially when there are many missing, can cause the facial skin to sink in around the jaw and sag from the upper jaw, giving the face a sunken-in and hollowed-out appearance. Full dentures provide structural support for the face and lift the facial muscles.
  • Boosted Confidence: Some people may hide their smile when they have missing teeth. With a complete set of teeth, you’ll smile brightly again and feel more confident in social situations and daily activities.

All in all, full dentures restore your smile and improve your quality of life by enabling you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.

What Is the Difference Between Full Dentures and Partial Dentures?

Partial dentures fill the gaps between the remaining natural teeth. On the other hand, full dentures are a complete set of dentures that provide all new teeth. These dentures are custom-made to fit comfortably over your gums and give a natural-looking appearance.
