Missing teeth can occur due to several factors, including tooth decay, severe gum disease, or even your age. If you’re struggling with significant tooth loss, our dentures in Cape Coral can help you regain your jaw function and confidence.
What Problem Is a Denture Used to Correct?
A denture is a proven method for restoring lost teeth. These dental appliances are custom-fit to match your natural bite. Dentures contain artificial teeth and tissue, which can be attached to a removable frame or set of implants. Whether you’re missing one or several teeth, our dentists will help you find the appliance that meets your needs. Don’t let missing teeth prevent you from enjoying life. Call us now to find out more about our affordable quality dentures.
What Types of Dentures Are Available?
After a thorough examination of your teeth and gums, one of our dentists will determine which type of denture will best restore your smile. Here are some of the options provided by our office:
If you’re suffering from extensive tooth loss or decay, a complete denture can help you restore your smile’s radiance. These fully customized appliances can replace a full row of teeth in the upper and lower parts of the jaw. All diseased teeth must be removed before a complete denture can be worn. Complete dentures can be detachable or supported by dental implants.
A partial denture can help you refill the gap between two healthy teeth. Similar to a bridge, partials are attached to the adjacent teeth using a durable metal framework; however, partials utilize clasps instead of dental crowns for support. The clasp system allows you to easily remove the partial for cleaning.
Flexible Partial Denture
Flexible partials feature no telltale metal clasps, making them a discreet way to replace a section of teeth. They’re fabricated with a pliable thermoplastic material that is comfortable to wear. Contact us now to learn more about this virtually invisible way to restore missing teeth.
While a traditional denture is attached to the gums using suction and adhesives, an implant-supported denture uses a different approach. This type of denture utilizes dental implants to remain secure. Your dentist will determine how many implants are needed to hold the denture in place. Implant-supported dentures can be removable or permanently attached.
How Does the All-on-4® Dentures Concept Work?
All-on-4® dental appliances feature the strength of Nobel Biocare implants along with increased chewing power. To receive All-on-4 dentures, four implants will be positioned into the jaw with two placed at an angle. Then, the dentist attaches your permanent dentures to the implants, creating a stable denture that will not shift or slide.
What Is the Process to Receive Dentures?
Obtaining a new dental appliance can involve several steps. During your initial appointment, one of our dentists will examine your teeth and explain your restorative options. Then, an imprint of your teeth and bite will be created and sent to a dental lab. Depending on what type of denture is selected, you may require tooth extractions or implant surgery. While you recover from any pretreatment work, a temporary denture will allow you to partake in your regular activities. After your permanent device arrives at our office, you’ll return for a final fitting and adjustment.
How Much Does a Denture Cost?
Every patient has a unique dental situation; because of this, the dentures cost can vary widely. The type of appliance selected, your insurance coverage, and the current health of your teeth will factor into your charges. Please contact us for further details about our affordable quality dentures.
What Is a Soft Denture Reline?
Most dentures in Cape Coral are created using a rigid acrylic base, which can sometimes create sore spots on the gums. Getting a soft reline from our office can greatly alleviate discomfort caused by dentures. This treatment involves relining the underside of the appliance with a non-rigid material.
