Are you missing a tooth or multiple teeth? Does one of your damaged teeth need to be extracted? If any of these situations apply to you, you may be a good candidate for dentures in Florida.
What Is a Denture?
A denture is a fully personalized dental appliance that replaces one or more teeth. To create a denture, a row of artificial teeth are attached to a detachable frame or dental implant for a secure hold. The pontic teeth and tissue are designed to appear natural, so you can feel confident while wearing your new dentures.
How Many Types of Dentures Are There?
Every smile is unique – that’s why dentures are available in several different styles. Find out which style is right for you by giving our office a call.
Also referred to as a complete denture, a full denture is used when all or most of the natural teeth need to be replaced. Full dentures can be used in either the upper or lower jaw. Fixed dentures can be permanently attached using dental implants or bonded to a removable frame.
With a partial denture, you can retain your healthy teeth while restoring the look and function of your smile. These appliances are similar to a bridge. However, partials use a clasp system instead of crowns for support. Partials are removed every night to be cleaned.
Flexible Partial Denture
An alternative to a traditional partial denture, a flexible partial denture doesn’t use a rigid base or metal. Instead, flexible partial dentures are fabricated using pliable materials and gum-colored clasps.
When you receive an implant-supported denture, dental implants are used to hold the denture in place. Implant-supported dentures can be removable or permanent, depending on your needs. With this type of denture, you won’t have to experience the hassle of sticky bonding agents.
What Is the All-on-4® Treatment Concept?
The All-on-4® dentures treatment method involves placing Nobel Biocare implants into the jaw. This procedure uses four implants, with two positioned at an angle. All-on-4 dentures are stable and do not slip or slide. They also provide increased biting power.
What Happens When You Get Dentures?
Obtaining a new denture takes place over multiple steps, which vary depending on the health of your teeth and gums. To begin the process, your dentist may create impressions of your teeth and bite, which will serve as a template for the new appliance. Any preliminary treatment, such as dental implant surgery or tooth extractions, must be completed before the final denture arrives at our office. After your gums have fully healed and your permanent device arrives, one of our dentists will ensure it fits properly.
How Much Do Dentures Cost?
The cost of replacing your teeth with dentures is determined by several factors, including: the type of denture used, the materials required to fabricate the denture, and your dental health. To learn more about how you can receive affordable quality dentures, please contact our practice.
