What Issues Do Dentures Address?

Dentures are versatile dental prosthetics that effectively address several oral health and functional issues while helping you maintain a beautiful smile. For individuals who have suffered from severe tooth loss or who need to have their teeth extracted, dentures are a reliable replacement solution. By restoring a complete arch of teeth, dentures can improve your teeth’s function and enhance your smile’s appearance.

One of the primary purposes of dentures is to assist in chewing and digestion. Missing teeth can make chewing difficult, affecting the foods you can eat. Dentures allow you to eat a more diverse diet and help you chew food thoroughly, aiding in the digestion process.

Tooth loss can also lead to speech impediments, making speaking difficult. By filling in gaps, dentures help control airflow to improve speech patterns. By replacing your missing teeth, you’ll be able to speak more confidently and express yourself more articulately.

In addition to eating and speaking difficulties, gaps left by missing teeth can lead to various oral health issues, including gum disease and misalignment of remaining teeth. Dentures fill these gaps, helping you to maintain your oral health.

At Fine Dental Care, your dentures are highly customizable. We offer implant-supported denture options that provide superior tooth replacement solutions to meet your unique needs and preferences. We’ll ensure your dentures fit comfortably, feel exceptionally secure, and look natural. With implant dentures, this is easier than ever before.

Traditional Dentures

Traditional dentures are removable appliances that replace a full set of teeth. They are made of artificial teeth connected to a pink acrylic base that mimics the appearance of your natural gums. Dentures stay in place using suction and support from your bottom jawbone ridge or upper palate.

Full Dentures

When you picture dentures, you are likely envisioning traditional full dentures. These appliances replace a complete set of teeth on the top or bottom arch. They are made of acrylic resin or porcelain, and while porcelain lasts longer, acrylic is stronger.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are also removable, but they replace several teeth in the arch instead of all the teeth. These dentures include clasps that hook onto the remaining teeth for support. While partial dentures are typically made from the same materials as full dentures, the clasps are sometimes metal.

The Drawbacks of Traditional Dentures

Traditional dentures don’t replicate the function, fit, or appearance of natural teeth.

One of the biggest issues of traditional dentures is their tendency to slip. They often move out of place while you speak, eat, or laugh, leading to embarrassment and frustration. The shifting can also prevent you from being able to speak clearly and cause gum irritation and mouth sores.

While dentures help you eat and chew your food after tooth loss, many foods—such as raw vegetables—remain challenging. Many denture wearers avoid these foods for fear of discomfort or damage to their dentures. In light of these challenges, the CDC indicates that wearing dentures can impact nutrition because easy-to-eat foods are often prioritized over healthy foods.

The lifespan of a traditional denture is also a significant drawback. Full dentures last between five and 10 years, and partial dentures can last up to 15 years, depending on the materials used. However, because your mouth changes over time, your dentures will undoubtedly loosen and shift. As a result, they will need to be periodically refitted or remade. In between refittings, many denture wearers resort to using messy adhesives to help keep their dentures from slipping.

While traditional dentures serve a purpose, many patients are looking for superior tooth replacement solutions. Dr. Fine is committed to delivering the best solutions in denture care. That’s why he offers implant dentures at Fine Dental Care.

Implant Dentures: An Innovative Alternative

Implant dentures take tooth replacement to the next level. Using revolutionary mini dental implants, Dr. Fine can stabilize new dentures or secure existing dentures by anchoring them to the implants.

At Fine Dental Care, we use mini dental implants to provide better patient outcomes. Because they are half the size of standard dental implants, they are suitable for those with bone loss. They are also half the cost of conventional implants, making them a cost-effective solution for budget-conscious individuals.

Their small size also translates to a minimally invasive placement procedure that takes just one visit. Thanks to his efficient implantation technique, Dr. Fine can place your implants and secure your denture in the same appointment.

These benefits aren’t too good to be true. Mini implants boast a success rate equal to or better than standard implants. With mini implant dentures, you can eat all your favorite foods, speak clearly, and smile confidently—and you can achieve this without undergoing a complex, multi-stage surgical procedure.

At Fine Dental Care, we offer different implant denture options to meet the unique needs of our patients.


If you prefer a secure yet removable denture, overdentures may be right for you. These dentures snap onto mini implants and can be removed at home for cleaning and maintenance. Implant overdentures look similar to traditional full dentures but without the upper palate. Rather than using your jaw ridge for support, overdentures are securely attached to 4-6 mini implants (for a lower arch) or 6-8 mini implants (for an upper arch). If you have existing dentures in good condition, we can often modify them to connect to the implants. Overdentures are a great solution for those seeking secure and economical implant dentures.

Zirconia Roundhouse Bridges

A roundhouse dental bridge replaces a full arch of teeth using zirconia, the strongest ceramic material available in dentistry. In addition to their strength, roundhouse bridges are incredibly natural-looking.

We provide both semi-removable and non-removable roundhouse options. The semi-removable Fix-on-Six® option uses 6-10 mini implants to enhance stability and support. Though you won’t take out the bridge yourself, Dr. Fine will remove it during your routine checkups, thoroughly cleaning and inspecting the prosthesis before reconnecting it to the implants. This model is an upgrade from the All-on-4® model that uses large conventional implants. While Dr. Fine used this system in the past, mini implants and the Fix-on-Six system provide better outcomes.

The non-removable roundhouse bridge is cemented onto 10-12 mini implants. This option offers the most stability, functioning just like your natural teeth. It’s also the most low-maintenance solution. In fact, you’ll care for these implant-supported dentures just as you would care for your natural teeth.

While each implant denture variety enhances your chewing ability, maintains your bite function, and secures your smile, the option that is best for you will depend on your dental needs, preferences, and budget. At your free implant consultation, we will discuss all the tooth replacement possibilities, take a free 3D scan of your mouth, and determine the best solution for your needs.
