With aging comes many changes to the human body. Eventually as people become much older, they lose their natural teeth. This is just the natural course of growing older. However, this does not necessarily mean that people must live without teeth today. As matter of fact, there are so many varieties of modern dental techniques and procedures that are designed to provide people of any age with a full set of beautiful, attractive and fully functional teeth. For example, complete dentures and partial dentures are often used as a way to help older people enjoy a better quality of life. 

Complete Dentures are Typically the Best Solution

When it comes to dealing with complete tooth loss, meaning that an individual has lost all or almost all of their teeth, complete dentures are typically the best solution to this problem. In order to have complete dentures sized and placed, it is necessary to allow your dentist to conduct a series of measurements of the mouth and jaw. This will help to determine the most appropriate-sized denture for your particular needs. Conversely, it is also possible to have dental implants placed in strategic locations within the mouth so that a snap-in and removable denture can be placed. This is often a preferred method because a securely fastened denture is less likely to slip or fall out. 

Partial Dentures that are Permanently Fixed 

Conversely, those who have lost just a few teeth in certain areas of the mouth may be better served by partial dentures. With partials, they can either be permanently fixed to surrounding teeth or can be removable depending on the patient’s needs and desire. With partial dentures that are permanently fixed they are often referred to as a fixed bridge. This is typically a more desirable option because it affords greater functionality and far less chance that a partial denture will fall out at an inappropriate time.
