The Different Types of Affordable Dentures

Embarking on the denture journey can initially seem overwhelming due to the many choices available. However, the beauty lies in these choices, allowing you to find a solution tailored to your unique dental needs. Let’s demystify the two primary types of affordable dentures offered at Cain Denture Centers:

1. Complete Dentures

Complete or full dentures come into play when all the natural teeth in the upper or lower jaw need replacement. They rest directly on the gums, covering the jawbones. These dentures are crafted to look natural and are customized to fit your mouth seamlessly.


  • Restores full function to the mouth, enabling better eating and speaking abilities.
  • Provides a natural appearance, boosting self-confidence.
  • Offers an affordable solution for those needing an entire set of new teeth.

2. Partial Dentures

Not all dental situations call for a complete overhaul. If you’ve lost a few teeth, but the rest remain healthy, partial dentures might be the answer. These are designed to fill the gaps left by missing teeth. They’re anchored in place by the neighboring natural teeth, often using metal frameworks or precision attachments.


  • Prevents the remaining natural teeth from shifting.
  • Enhances overall oral functionality, including chewing and speaking.
  • Custom-made to ensure a perfect fit alongside existing teeth.

We tailor these options to fit your dental anatomy and your budget. We believe in delivering quality without making it a pricey affair.

The Procedure Involved in the Fitting of Dentures

Understanding what goes into getting dentures can alleviate many anxieties about the process. Here’s a brief overview of our procedure:

1. Consultation: The journey begins with an initial consultation. This session allows our team to evaluate your oral health, discuss your needs, and suggest the best denture solution for you.

2. Impressions: Once a plan is set, we’ll take precise impressions of your mouth. These impressions serve as a mold to ensure your dentures fit like a glove.

3. Bite Measurements: To ensure your upper and lower dentures align perfectly, measurements of how your jaws relate to one another are taken, and the space between them is noted.

4. Wax Models: Before finalizing your dentures, wax models mimicking the final product are tested for fit, shape, and color.

5. Crafting the Final Denture: Once you’re satisfied with the wax model, the final denture is crafted in a dental lab, ensuring aesthetics and functionality.

6. Fitting: The final step involves fitting the denture, making any necessary adjustments for comfort, and ensuring that your bite is correct.

Our team is dedicated to ensuring a comfortable and informative experience throughout the process. We understand that every mouth is unique, and our procedure is designed to offer a personalized touch at every step.

We combine expertise with empathy, ensuring you walk out with a radiant smile that doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket.

The journey of oral health restoration is a decision that many ponder for quite some time. With advancements in dental technology, dentures have become an excellent solution for those missing several or all of their teeth.
