Are you missing any of your teeth? Perhaps you’re missing all of them. If so, new dentures can transform your sense of wellbeing and self-confidence. Functional, strong teeth provide a necessary step in the digestive process and allow you to eat your favorite foods. They also help to maintain the youthful shape of your face and jaw. To learn more about why affordable quality dentures are a smart investment in your health, continue reading or call our office today.
A denture is an appliance that you wear in your mouth to take the place of missing teeth. It consists of one or more artificial teeth that are set onto a base that resembles gum tissue. Dentures allow patients to chew and speak normally after losing teeth.
At our dental practice, we offer a variety of denture options for customized smile restorations. Your dentist will listen to your concerns and act as your guide in choosing the best denture for your needs. Whether you need to have one tooth or a full mouth of teeth replaced, your satisfaction with your new smile is our top priority.
A full denture is an efficient and affordable way to replace a full row of teeth. If the majority of your teeth are missing or in poor condition, a full denture is a great choice for renewing your smile. This type of dental appliance is usually removable. When you wear it, it rests on the gum that covers the jawbone and is held in place by suction. You can also create a stronger grip using denture adhesive.
A partial denture allows you to keep your natural teeth while replacing the teeth that are missing. It attaches to the teeth that are still there and rests on the gum where teeth are missing. A conventional partial denture usually employs a metal framework and metal clasps.
Some denture wearers prefer to wear a flexible partial denture because they find it to be more comfortable than a conventional, rigid partial. A flexible denture consists of artificial teeth with a base made of a lightweight, bendable material that can move with your mouth. Since the base is made from a translucent material, this type of denture tends to be less noticeable.
Your dentist may recommend an implant-supported denture for your lower jaw. Lower dentures often benefit from added support because your lower jaw moves a lot when you’re talking and eating. It also has a smaller ridge that may not lend itself well to forming the strong suction that’s needed to hold a conventional denture in place.
An All-on-4® denture is a complete row of teeth that is fixed in place with four dental implants. This denture features Nobel biocare implants, and you would care for it the same way you’d care for natural teeth. Patients appreciate the convenience of this type of denture and the additional biting power that it provides.
Your denture treatment plan will have several steps. Your dentist will evaluate the health of your remaining teeth and the condition of your gums to determine the best type of denture for your needs. While the process of getting dentures will vary for each individual, every patient will have measurements and impressions taken of their teeth and gums. You may receive a temporary denture while you’re waiting for your permanent appliance to be fabricated. Once your final denture is ready, your dentures dentist will see you for a fitting and will make any modifications it may need.
Our dental office strives to put affordable quality dentures within everyone’s reach. How much you’ll pay for your new denture depends on a few things, such as what kind of denture you receive, the current state of your oral health, the amount of preparatory work that is needed, and the materials that are used to create your new dental appliance.
A conventional denture is made from a rigid acrylic material that can be uncomfortable for some denture wearers. Over time, the shape of your gum will change, and your denture may start to cause pain. A dentist can refresh the lining of your denture and make it fit better and more comfortably by using a soft denture reline material.
