Dentures in Atlanta, GA

Why Would I Need Dentures?

If you’ve lost a substantial number of your natural teeth, if your natural teeth have deteriorated and no longer function well, or if you’re tired of the upkeep of natural teeth, then a denture set may be the answer for you. Teeth serve multiple functions, such as chewing and helping to partially digest food, maintain proper jaw structure, and more, so a lack of teeth can adversely affect your overall health.

A denture set can last for many years if it’s properly maintained, so it can be a great investment in your overall health.

What Denture Options Are Available?

After a comprehensive examination of your teeth and gums, your dentist will make recommendations that are determined by your preferences and needs.

What Are Full Dentures?

Full—also called complete—dentures replace all of your natural teeth and are available for both the lower and upper jaws. With this option, all of your existing teeth will be removed, impressions and measurements taken, and you’ll be provided with a temporary dental appliance that you can wear until your gums heal. At that time, your new set of dentures will be installed and fitted for comfort and function.

If you’ve selected a removable denture, it will rest on your gums, while a fixed denture will be anchored by dental implants.

What Are Partial Dentures?

If you’ve selected a partial denture, you’ll keep your healthy teeth and those that are missing will be replaced with a partial denture set, which the dentist will attach to adjacent teeth by use of clasps. You’ll need to remove the partial every day and clean it.

Flexible partial dentures don’t use clasps or a rigid base. Instead, they’re made from flexible material that is more comfortable and bends as your mouth moves. The clasps are also flexible and both the clasps and the base are realistically gum-colored.

What Is an Implant-Supported Denture?

This type of denture is secured by dental implants, usually two or four, and is installed in the lower jaw only. The lower jaw requires more stability than the upper jaw, so usually this type of appliance isn’t used for the upper jaw. An implant-supported denture needs to be removed and cleaned on a daily basis.

What Are All-on-Four Dentures?

All-on-Four dentures are artificial teeth that are permanently attached to implants in the lower jaw, which provides additional biting power along with the convenience of a fixed denture.

Is It Time-Consuming to Get Dentures?

There are several steps involved in getting a new denture set and the process will vary according to the individual. Usually, the dentist takes impressions and measurements so that the new denture set will be an accurate replication of your natural teeth. Teeth will be extracted as necessary and implants, if applicable, will be installed. You’ll be provided with a temporary denture to wear until your jaw heals and your new dentures are ready for installation.

When your new dentures are ready, the dentist will install them and adjust them for maximum comfort and function.

How Much Will Dentures Cost Me?

Cost is a variable, and it depends on several factors. The type of denture desired, the prep work that will need to be done, and the cost of the materials used will factor into the overall cost of your new denture set.

Our dentists can help you decide on the best affordable quality dentures that will satisfy your unique situation. If you need to get new dentures in Atlanta, contact our offices today and let us help you.

What is a Soft Reline?

A soft denture reline uses a pliable material to line the dentures rather than the hard acrylic that is normally used. The soft reline can eliminate the pain and soreness that can sometimes accompany a denture set.
