Why Select Dentures?
A denture is a dental appliance that features one or more prosthetic teeth set onto a gum-colored base. A denture will help you to chew your food comfortably, and it should look just like a beautiful, natural tooth or set of teeth.
Understanding the Types of Dentures
There is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to choosing a denture; that’s why there are multiple denture variations. Your dentist will talk with you to find out what option or combination of options will best suit your needs and preferences.
What Is a Complete Denture?
If you’ve had most or all your teeth extracted, a complete denture is a convenient and economical way to restore your smile. A conventional complete denture is removable and taken out at night. You can have a complete upper denture, bottom denture or both. This kind of dental prosthesis sits on the gums during use.
What Is a Partial Denture?
If you’re only missing a few teeth, a partial denture can fill the gap with lifelike false teeth. This denture is constructed with a base that matches the color of your gum tissue. A partial stays in place using suction on the gum and has metal clasps, sometimes called abutments, which attach to the surrounding natural teeth.
Flexible Partial Denture
A flexible partial denture is made using a lightweight material, such as a nylon polymer. This type of denture is often described as virtually invisible because the base material is translucent and there are no telltale metal clasps. While a flexible partial can cost more than a conventional partial denture, patient satisfaction tends to be very high because of the comfort and look it provides.
Are Implant-Supported Dentures Right for Me?
An implant-supported denture is attached to and supported by dental implants. In order to have this type of denture, the patient needs to have enough bone in the jaw to support the implants. This type of denture is often recommended for the lower jaw because conventional dentures tend to shift out of position there.
Is the All-on-4® Treatment Concept Right for My Needs?
With All-on-4® dentures, you can receive a set of fully functioning replacement teeth within a short timeframe. This procedure uses four dental implants to support a fixed, non-removable denture that functions like real teeth. The All-on-4 procedure simplifies treatment for tooth loss and costs less overall in comparison to conventional dental implant procedures.
What Should I Expect When Getting Dentures for the First Time?
The first step of getting dentures for many patients is to have their failing teeth extracted. Afterward, the gums will need time to heal. The dentist will take an impression of your mouth that will be used as a template for making your new denture. Once your denture is ready, you’ll visit the dentist for your initial fitting. As your gums continue to heal and change size, you’ll see the dentist for further adjustments.
What Will My Dentures Cost?
No matter what type of denture you choose, our dental team is committed to keeping your denture price as low as possible. You’ll receive a detailed estimate so that you’ll know your cost for dentures up front. Your total amount will vary based on the denture type and the dental work that you need. It’s our goal to provide our patients with affordable quality dentures that are comfortable and beautiful.
Why Get a Soft Reline for Dentures?
If your lower or upper denture doesn’t feel as comfortable as it should, it could be time to get it relined. A soft denture reline is a fast process that can be performed in our office to enhance the fit and feel of your denture. The dentist puts a soft, cushion-like layer into the gum tray of your denture. The result should be increased comfort and no more sore spots.
