Dentures Q & A

What are dentures?

Dentures are false teeth that restore your smile if you’ve experienced tooth loss.

The benefits of wearing dentures include:

  • Improved appearance of your smile
  • Supportive structure around your cheeks and lips
  • Help with chewing and speaking
  • A cost-effective treatment choice

There are several types of dentures to choose from. 

What are the different types of dentures? 

The Dorri’s Dental team may utilize a 3D X-ray or CT scan to view your teeth, gums, tissues, and surrounding facial structures. They then recommend dentures that best suit your needs. 

Full dentures

Also known as a complete denture, this appliance replaces an entire arch of missing teeth. Consisting of artificial teeth and a gum-colored base, dentures rest on top of your gums and rely on the roof of your mouth or lower jawbone ridge for support. 

Partial dentures

Partial dentures are a great option if you’re missing several or most of your teeth on the top or bottom. 

Partial dentures are similar to full dentures and rely on your gums and underlying bones for support. They also have supportive clasps that hook around your remaining natural teeth.

Immediate dentures

An immediate denture is a device you wear right after tooth extractions. Once you’re fully healed, your provider can replace them with your final dentures.


Overdentures combine both dentures and dental implants. The permanent implants support the removable overdentures. This option is more comfortable, stable, natural-looking, and permanent than regular dentures. 

Implant-supported dentures

Implant-supported dentures (permanent dentures) don’t snap in and out; only your dental provider can remove them. This is a great option if you don’t want a removable appliance.  

How do you make dentures?

Dorri’s Dental first uses a 3D intraoral scanner and special software to translate the images of your mouth and jaw into a digital blueprint. From this data, lab technicians can create precise dentures.

You try on your dentures to ensure you feel confident in their color, shape, and fit. Your provider can make adjustments as necessary. 

It’s normal for new dentures to feel strange or loose until your muscles and tongue learn to keep them in place. You may experience minor irritation, soreness, or increased saliva, but this should improve as your mouth adjusts.
