Why Get Dentures for Missing Teeth?
Dentures replace missing teeth, enhancing both the appearance of your smile and the level of your overall wellbeing. A denture restores a more youthful look and enables you to eat and speak better than you could with missing teeth. Missing teeth can make it hard to chew the nutritious foods your body needs. Dentures make it possible for you to eat the foods you love.
What Is the Right Denture for You?
There are several styles of dentures and each has its own distinct advantages. At our dental office, a dentist will work with you closely to determine the type of denture that will achieve your goal of possessing an attractive, functional set of teeth.
A Full Denture: Explained
A full denture is a removable dental appliance that’s designed for patients who don’t have any teeth left on the upper or lower jaw. If you’re missing all your teeth or you don’t have remaining teeth that are strong enough to support a partial denture, a full denture is an excellent option. Also known as a complete denture, this dental appliance is made of imitation teeth set onto a base that is made to resemble gum tissue.
What Is a Partial Denture?
A partial denture is useful for replacing a few missing teeth in patients who still have most of their natural teeth. This type of denture is a lot like a bridge, however, a partial denture is removable whereas a bridge is fixed in place and only removable by a dentist. A partial should be taken out and cleaned at night.
Flexible Partial Denture
A flexible partial denture does not have a metal framework, rather its base is made from a material that is flexible and durable. This base material is usually translucent, so it can blend in and take on the color of your natural gums better than a traditional partial denture that has an acrylic-resin base.
An implant-supported denture is secured to dental implants, and it’s often installed in just the lower jaw. Many denture wearers experience problems with bottom dentures slipping out of place. A denture that’s secured with implants solves that problem. This type of denture can be fixed in place or removable.
What Defines the All-on-4® Treatment Concept?
The All-on-4® dentures procedure uses four strategically placed, Nobel biocare dental implants to secure a full denture to your jaw. An All-on-4 denture is only removable by a dentist; otherwise, it is considered to be a permanent replacement option. This denture lets you chew foods with biting power that is comparable to natural teeth.
How Should I Go about Getting a Denture?
In many cases, the process of getting dentures starts with one or more tooth extractions. Then, you’ll receive a temporary denture, also known as an immediate denture, while you wait for your gums to heal and your final denture to be made. Once your denture is ready and your gums have properly healed, you’ll have a fitting for your new denture. With good care, your denture can last for many years.
What Are Typical Denture Prices?
Your dentures cost is dependent on the procedure and options you’ve selected, the extent of the preparatory work you need and the material that is used to make your denture. Your dentist will work closely with you so that you receive the dental appliance that works best for you and your budget.
Why Choose a Soft Reline for Dentures?
A soft denture reline is used to improve dentures that have a standard, hard acrylic lining in them. Many patients discover that a soft reline puts an end to painful sore spots. Also, a soft reline can improve the fit of a denture that has become less snug over the years.
