You may think you know every last detail about dentures, which can significantly impact your decision to choose them to replace your teeth (or to consider another prosthetic). If you’re an individual who thinks today’s dentures are bulky or unnatural looking, we suggest you quiz yourself to find out how much you really know about replacing your teeth with full dentures. Of course, we also strongly suggest that you schedule a consultation with us, so we may quickly begin steering you in the right direction for addressing your tooth loss.

Full Denture Quiz: True or False?

  1. True or False: Full dentures are appropriate for nearly any type of tooth loss pattern, from complete tooth loss to one or two missing teeth.
  2. True or False: A denture is composed of a pink-hued base crafted out of high-grade acrylic – within the denture is a full set of beautiful, custom-crafted artificial teeth to restore your smile.
  3. True or False: You may choose either traditionally supported dentures that rely on suction created by your mouth or you may discuss selecting implant-retained dentures, which receive their support from dental implants.

Quiz Answer Key

  1. False. A full denture is only appropriate for a patient who has lost a full series of teeth on one arch. If you are suffering from partial tooth loss, you are better suited to a partial denture – or a bridge.
  2. True. This type of denture is a single unit that will replace all of the missing teeth along your arch. The moment you place it over your dental ridge, you will restore the structure and beauty of your smile.
  3. True. You have two options, which we will discuss in detail with you during your appointment. If you desire implants, we will need to make sure that you are a good candidate for the surgical placement and recovery process.
