Dentures are made to resemble natural teeth. There are three types of dentures and each are made to meet a specific need.

This is permanently attached to healthy neighboring teeth. It replaces missing teeth when surrounding teeth and gums are healthy.

This is held in place with clasps that are attached to neighboring teeth. It replaces many teeth that have been removed.

Dentures are needed when all natural teeth have been removed because of severe gum disease or other dental problems.

Implants are small metal posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone. The post gradually bonds with surrounding tissue and bone until it becomes a strong anchor that permanently holds replacement teeth.

Cleaning Partial Dentures
Partial dentures must be removed and cleaned daily. Cleaning removes plaque and food particles that can cause stains, bad breath and gum irritation. Brush all surfaces, especially under the clasps, where bacteria collect. Remember to clean the rest of your teeth, gums and tongue. At bedtime, place the partial in water.

Cleaning Dentures
Dentures should be cleaned daily because plaque forms on dentures the same way it forms on natural teeth. Dentures are breakable and can break if dropped or squeezed too tightly. Place a towel in the sink. Fill the sink half full of water to stop the denture from breaking if dropped.

Either a denture brush or a regular toothbrush with soft rounded bristles will clean all parts of a denture. Denture cleaner, soap, dishwashing liquid or baking soda may be used for cleaning dentures. Never use an abrasive household cleaner like Ajax or bleach. Rinse carefully in clean water before placing dentures back in the mouth.

Remove Dentures
Dentures need to be removed from the mouth for six to eight hours each day to give the mouth a chance to rest. Remember to clean and massage your gums with a clean washcloth, or a soft bristled toothbrush. Brush your tongue too. This removes plaque and will increase circulation.

Soaking Dentures
At night, dentures should soak in lukewarm water. Use a half-and-half solution of water and vinegar to soften hardened plaque and remove light stains. Keep full or partial dentures in water when not in the mouth. This will stop dentures from drying out or warping. Note: if dentures have metal clasps use water only.

The mouth changes often and regular dental appointments are necessary to keep a good comfortable fit. It is important to replace a worn or poorly fitting denture before it causes problems in the mouth. Repairing or relining dentures at home may seriously damage both the dentures and your gums. Poor fitting dentures can cause sore spots that may need medical attention.

Denture Tips

  • You can expect some adjustment for the first month after getting a fixed partial, removable partial, or full denture. If discomfort lasts longer than 3-4 days, contact your dentist or denturist. Do not make your own adjustments.
  • Poor oral hygiene can be the reason for denture discomfort.
  • As we age, tissues become more sensitive to pressure and can cause sore spots. To ease discomfort, the mouth can be rinsed with baking soda and water or salt and water. If a sore mouth remains untreated, it can cause other problems. Contact a dentist or denturist if the soreness continues.
  • Lower dentures, over time, may not fit as well. Your dentist or denturist can add a soft liner. This is a permanent liner and it will stay soft as long as the denture lasts.
  • The upper denture is the one that usually causes the least discomfort. The advantage for the upper denture is suction with the roof of the mouth.

Mini dental implants for dentures

i just took my mom for a dental consulation for flexible partials- but partials are not possible as all her remaining teeth are loose and need to be removed.
this same reccomendation was advised 2 years ago by another dentist. she wasn't ready then and is still reluctant now.
they suggested implants but the quote with a senior discount was over $32,000! for a hybrid implant/denture for both upper and lower.
i called to usc and ucla-both are full and not taking anymore clients for at least 2-3 mos.
read about mini implants- lower cost, pain a

Implant cost effectiveness

A nightmare for dentists and grist for kibitzers.
are implants “cost effective”?
how successful are implants for people that smoke?
what about crown extensions instead of implants.
how about partials?
what about retainers for teeth above the missing lower teeth?
age 73. smoke about a pack and a half a day.
dental question involves lower right and everything behind the incisor.
first extraction in the area was in about 1951 and a wisdom tooth in
about 1953.
had root canals done on some of teeth in area.
had a bridge that ran from just behind incisor to rear molar


I was thinking of getting dentures replaced by a completely implanted appliance. I've had the rundown on how it works, where they put screws in to the bone top and bottom (and have been told my bone and gums are great for this kind of thing) but I was wondering if anyone that looked into or had this done can tell me what a reasonable price for this is? I kind of have an idea of what an unreasonable price is... I'm interested in cost for complete or partial or even single tooth. And any insurance info/ tips, if you are lucky enough to have any is appreciated.
