Smile More for Less!

To Denture or Not Denture: That is the Question

To Denture or Not Denture: That is the QuestionIn a world where our smiles communicate so much, it can be a hassle to confront a situation where our teeth are wholly or partially compromised. It can feel like a big step to consider dentures of any kind, but you’re doing yourself a favor by exploring all the options available to you.

The most important aspect on your path to excellent oral health is to consider your comfort and well-being first. Your overall happiness is one of our main priorities here at Shine Dental Group. Taking time to understand your options without too much distraction is of utmost importance.

Missing or painful teeth can complicate your entire life, and approaching the option of obtaining dentures can be overwhelming. No matter what’s holding you back from undertaking the appropriate process, we’re here to answer any of your questions.

We want to take the guess work out and apprehension out of the experience for you.

According to the American College of Prosthodontists, more than 35 million Americans have no teeth and 178 million are missing at least one. If you’re struggling with tooth loss or the possibility of extraction, you’re not alone.

There are a few options to consider when dealing with tooth loss. Your particular circumstances factor in greatly regarding which option is best.


Partial Dentures

This option is best when only missing some of your teeth. The dental fixture is removable, comfortable, affordable, and fit just for you. There are a few different types of partial dentures: conventional, semi-precision, and precision. It’s best to research which option is best for you with the assistance of a Shine Dental Group professional.


Full Dentures

Whether you’ve lost your teeth naturally or from an unfortunate accident, full dentures are to be considered when you experience complete tooth loss on either your top or bottom gums or both. Full dentures are easily removable for a care routine on your time.


Dental Implants

Unlike dentures, implants are a surgical answer to tooth loss. Implants fully replicate the look and feel of original teeth. They cannot be removed and are surgically bonded to your jaw bone. There is greater ease and longevity to implants, but also a more in-depth procedure required beyond denture fittings.

Tooth loss doesn’t have to compromise your interaction with the world. It’s a common issue for Americans across the country, and options are available to you that fit your circumstances.
