Dentures: Dentures or removable replacements for missing teeth are the worst types of replacement. Fixed bridges are better and Implant retained prostheses are the best, hands down. Please don't try to find the best solution for replacing your missing teeth over the internet. Find the best restorative dentist in your local area and discuss treatment options.

Types of dentures: There are three main types of dentures: 1. Standard dentures. 2. Immediate dentures. and 3. Implant retained dentures are the most durable, most stable and most expensive. (The best!)

Dr. James Courey
Specializes in Prosthodontics
Traditional/Implant: Traditional dentures (even with an adhesive) generally restore only 10% of chewing function, while a bone-anchored prosthesis restores 60–80% in similar evaluations. An implant retained denture will feel more like your own teeth and will not require messy denture pastes. Remember, no denture is a replacement for teeth---they are a replacement for no teeth. All the best.
