Full and Partial Dentures
Losing teeth is a very common oral health problem that can severely impact your quality of life. Whether you’ve lost teeth due to age, tooth decay, or advanced gum disease, our affordable dentures in East Brunswick may be a solution.
What Happens During a Denture Placement Procedure?
The process of receiving dentures takes place over many steps. During an initial appointment, your dentist may create impressions of your mouth and record measurements of your jaw structure. This ensures your new appliance will accurately replicate your bite. If you require additional dental procedures like extractions or implant placement, these will need to be completed before your permanent denture is attached. You may receive a temporary denture to wear while your mouth heals. Once your mouth has healed successfully, your dentist will perform any necessary adjustments to allow you to comfortably wear your permanent appliance.
What Are the Different Types of Dentures?
If you’re ready to restore your smile’s brilliance with affordable quality dentures, we can help. Call us now to learn about the following types of dentures:
Complete and Partial Dentures
Complete dentures are ideal for those who are missing most of their teeth. These appliances can be placed in the upper or lower jaw, and can be affixed using the traditional method or secured with dental implants. Before receiving a complete denture, all diseased teeth in the area must be extracted. Implants will also be placed before you receive your permanent full denture, if receiving an implant-supported device. Those who still have several healthy teeth may be good candidates for a partial denture. Similar to a dental bridge, a partial is attached to adjacent metal teeth using a clasp system. Both complete and partial dentures should be removed each night for cleaning.
Flexible Partial Denture
A comfortable substitute for rigid acrylic dental devices, flexible partials are crafted using pliable plastic and natural-looking clasps. Virtually invisible when worn, they offer a discreet denture-wearing experience. With flexible partial dentures, no one will know you’re wearing a dental appliance unless you tell them.
Your dentist may recommend an implant-supported dental appliance if you still have ample jawbone even when missing teeth. Implant-supported appliances tend to be best for the lower jaw, though they can be used for the upper jaw. These appliances offer a secure hold and do not require adhesive to be held in place.
What Will Dentures Cost to Implant?
Dentures in East Brunswick vary in cost depending on the type selected, the materials used to craft the device, and the preliminary treatment needed to place the denture. At your consultation, your dentist will explain your treatment options and their associated costs. You can also call our office to speak with one of our team members if you have questions about financing for dentures.
What Is a Denture and Why Are They Used?
Created to look and function like natural teeth, a denture serves as a replacement for missing or decayed teeth. Dentures typically consist of one or two rows of teeth attached to a frame or dental implants. Wearing our affordable quality dentures can greatly improve your facial structure and appearance.
What Is a Reline for Dentures?
A quick and affordable treatment, a soft denture reline can reduce discomfort and sore spots caused by denture wear. During this procedure, the dentist attaches a soft lining to the underside of your denture, allowing it to rest comfortably on the gums.
What Are All-on-Four Dentures?
Advances in denture implant technology have allowed dentists to place a full set of artificial teeth on top of four dental implants. Known as the All-on-Four denture technique, this option allows the wearer to experience excellent stability and maximum chewing power.
