There are different types of Reading dentures. They vary in materials, cost, design and the intricacy in which they are made. If you are thinking about getting yourself a set of dentures, take a look at these different denture types to help you decide.
Implant supported dentures
A dental implant differs from other denture types in a way that they are designed to be attached to the jaw bone, making them permanent with a solid foundation to keep the denture securely in place. Because the implant is attached to the bone, they are proven durable and they can last long while remaining to look natural.
If you are looking for a stable type of dentures, the snap-in dentures should be your first choice. The dentures are held securely in place through dental implants. The dentures are anchored into existing teeth to make them look all natural. Snap-in dentures come with locator attachments that are embedded to the tissue side of the denture. The locator attachments are snapped onto the implants so you can easily remove the Reading dentures when you want to. Snap-in dentures are generally used when patients do not have existing teeth but with enough jaw bone to support an implant.
Overdentures are placed on top of the gums and they are secured by dental implants. Depending on the patient’s needs, overdentures can be placed on the lower or upper jaw of the patient. Overdentures can also be removed.
Just like its description, upper dentures are false teeth that are specifically made for the upper teeth. If you have missing or extracted teeth on the upper jaw, an upper denture could be the right type of dental solution for you.
Economy dentures are the cheapest type of Reading dentures in the industry. They are made for generic purposes, which mean that anyone who needs a set of dentures can just purchase this. Since economy dentures are not made for the specific needs of a patient, there is a big possibility that the dentures will be ill-fitted or they may look evidently artificial. Also, one would need a denture adhesive to attach the denture to the gums.
