COVID-19 Safety Message: Visit our practice with confidence – your safety is our top concern.
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
When you are missing several teeth, it can have a dramatic effect on your self-esteem. You might even find it more difficult to chew or speak. With our affordable quality dentures, you can restore your natural jaw function and enjoy smiling again.
What Are Dentures?
Whether you’re missing one or a full row of teeth, dentures in Altamonte Springs may be a treatment option for you. Our dentures are custom-made to accurately replicate your natural teeth, allowing you to enjoy a confident smile. To create a denture, a row of pontic teeth is attached to a removable frame or set of dental implants. A denture can greatly improve your facial structure, making it an excellent investment in your dental health.
What Are the Various Types of Affordable Quality Dentures?
At our office, we understand that every patient faces unique challenges when it comes to restoring their smile. That’s why we provide several options for dentures in Altamonte Springs for you to choose from.
When most of your teeth are missing or damaged, our dentists may recommend a complete denture. These appliances can replace a full row of teeth and can be used as lower dentures or upper dentures. A full extraction is required before receiving this type of denture. Complete dentures can be detachable or fixed, depending on your needs.
Instead of replacing a full arch of teeth, a partial denture replaces a small section in one area of the mouth. Partials are similar to dental bridges because they rely on adjacent teeth for support; however, they use clasps instead of crowns.
Flexible Partial Denture
Are you searching for a discreet way to replace a section of teeth? A flexible partial may be a good choice. Fabricated using pliable, gum-colored materials, this appliance features flexible clasps and a non-rigid base.
While a traditional complete denture uses adhesive and suction to remain on the gum line, implant-supported dentures remain in place using dental implants. Your dentist will determine how many implants are needed for your appliance. An implant-supported denture can be detachable or fixed.
What Are All-on-4® Dentures?
With the All-on-4® treatment concept, Nobel Biocare implants are strategically positioned in the jaw. A permanent denture is then affixed to the implants, creating excellent biting power. All-on-4 dentures will not become dislodged, allowing you to smile and speak with confidence.
What Happens During a Denture Procedure?
In some cases, getting a new denture involves several dental visits. Before your denture is created, you will need to undergo any necessary dental treatments like implant surgery or extractions. Impressions will also be made of your teeth and bite. Those impressions will serve as the blueprint for your new appliance. You’ll receive a temporary appliance to wear until your final denture arrives. Then, the dentist will ensure the appliance fits and functions correctly.
What Do Dentures Cost?
Several factors will determine your final charges for denture treatment. These factors include the current condition of your teeth and gums, the style of denture chosen, and the materials required to create your appliance. Call our office for more details.
What Is a Soft Reline for Dentures?
Most dentures are created with a hard acrylic base which can sometimes cause sore spots along the gums. If your appliance has become uncomfortable, consider a soft denture reline from our dentists. During this quick procedure, the dentist relines the appliance with a soft, bendable material. The dentures will remain pliable for about two years.
