With a full denture, your smile can be completely restored. These appliances use a full row of pontic teeth and tissue to replace an entire arch of teeth. Your dentist can permanently affix a full denture using dental implants, or the appliance can be bonded to the gum line using adhesive. A full extraction will be required before this type of denture is fitted.
Partial dentures are ideal for those who need a small section of teeth replaced due to injury or decay. Metal clasps allow the partial to slide over the supporting teeth, making it easy to remove the appliance for cleaning.
Flexible Partial Denture
A flexible partial is a comfortable and discreet substitute for a traditional partial denture. They’re created using bendable thermoplastic resin and gum-colored clasps that blend in with your natural tissue.
If your dentist has determined that you have enough bone to support implants, an implant-supported appliance may be recommended. These devices offer a stable hold even without adhesive. They are available as removable or fixed appliances. Your dentist will place each implant during a separate procedure.
What about the All-on-4® Treatment Concept Is Superior?
A modern concept in implant dentistry, the All-on-4® dentures procedure gives the wearer a confident hold and excellent chewing strength. During the All-on-4 dentures procedure, the dentist places four implants in strategic places along the jaw, with two of them positioned at an angle.
What Happens When You Get Dentures?
Getting new dentures can be a multi-step process, but the benefits often make the time spent well worth it. To begin, you’ll visit one of our dentists for a complete examination, where he or she will determine if dentures are right for you. Measurements or impressions may be taken of your jaw and bite, which will be sent to the lab that will fabricate your appliance. If you require dental prep-work like tooth removal or implant surgery, you may require additional visits. As your mouth heals, you’ll wear a temporary denture until the final appliance arrives. In approximately two weeks, you’ll return to our practice for a fitting and adjustment.
How Much Will My Dentures Cost?
Your final charges for dentures will be determined by multiple factors: the type of appliance chosen, the supplies used to create the denture, and your dental insurance coverage. Please contact us for more details.
Why Do Patients Choose a Soft Denture Reline?
While dentures’ rigid materials can make them quite durable, they can often cause irritation or sore spots. Our dentists can resurface your appliance with an affordable pliable material that remains comfortable for about two years.
