Types of Dentures | Jacksonville, FL

What are the different types of dentures and what do they look like? Well, there are three basic types of dentures -- let's talk about each one!

Conventional Dentures: These appliances are the traditional denture appliance. They rest on the gums and are removable. They have been around for centuries and are an affordable way to replace missing teeth. However, there are several limitations to them, including instability and resorption, or loss of jawbone. You can have full or partial dentures.

Overdentures, or implant-retained dentures: These appliances attach to dental implants—or screws—in the jawbone. This increases their stability because they do not simply sit on the gums. They are removable, which makes these dentures cost moderately more than conventional ones.

Permanent or Fixed Implant-Supported Dentures: These appliances also attach to dental implants, but you cannot take them out. Only a dentist can remove these dentures. They are the priciest option because they require more implants than overdentures. They are also the most natural-looking, feeling and functioning dentures.
