Aside from chewing your food, your teeth perform several functions, one of which is to maintain the proper structure of your jaw. When you lose teeth, your facial structure can change and you may have difficulty speaking and chewing; you may also begin to lose self-confidence because of your missing teeth.
Why Get Dentures?
Dentures are the solution to missing teeth and are available in several different styles. Our dentists will evaluate your needs and your dental situation and help you select the option that will best suit your needs and preferences.
What Options are Available?
Partial or Full Dentures
Full or partial dentures are available and will replace some or all of your natural teeth. Both types are custom-fitted to your mouth and are composed of a base, which is made of plastic-coated metal, and the teeth, which are made of resin.
You may opt to have all of your teeth removed and a full set of dentures made, in which case, all of your teeth will be extracted and you’ll receive a set of temporaries. After your gums have completely healed, you’ll be fitted with a permanent set of dentures. The permanent dentures will rest on your gums and two options are available: a full denture that is removable, or a fixed full denture, which will be held in place by implants.
If you choose to keep your healthy teeth, you can use a bridge to replace missing teeth. A bridge is permanently affixed to adjacent teeth. Alternatively, you have the option to use a partial denture, which clasps onto adjacent teeth but can be removed, unlike a bridge.
Flexible Partial Dentures
A flexible partial denture is removable and is attached to your natural teeth by precision attachments.
An implant-supported denture is held in place by implants and the number of implants will vary depending on the individual. Typically, this type of denture is for the lower jaw only and must be removed and cleaned each night.
How Do I Get Dentures?
There are several steps to this procedure and they vary depending on the option you select. Usually, the dentist takes one or more impressions of your teeth along with detailed measurements. This is essential in order for your new dentures to fit properly. Teeth are extracted as necessary and a temporary dental appliance supplied. Implants will be replaced as necessary, and once the new denture is ready, it will be installed and adjusted for a comfortable fit.
What Will My Dentures Cost?
The cost of your affordable quality dentures will vary depending on the style selected and the amount of work needed. The type of material chosen will also affect the price of your new teeth.
