Dentures in Woodstock, GA

Who Usually Needs Dentures?

Anyone who has lost a few or a substantial number of their natural teeth should consider getting dentures. Teeth play a vital role in our health and well-being. They’re responsible for chewing, which is the first step in the digestive process. They also provide stability for the jaws and can boost self-confidence by providing a beautiful smile. An investment in a good-quality denture set can pay dividends for many years.

What Types of Dentures Are Available?

Many types of dentures are available and what’s best for you will depend on your individual circumstances and needs. Your dentist will perform a careful evaluation of all factors before making a recommendation as to which is the best type of denture for your needs.

What Is a Full Set?

A full denture set, sometimes called a complete set, replaces all of your natural teeth in both the upper and lower jaws. Measurements and impressions will be taken, and then any existing teeth will be extracted, implants installed if necessary, and you’ll be given a temporary set of teeth. When your gums have healed, your new permanent denture set will be installed and adjusted as necessary for optimal function and comfort. A removable, full denture rests on your gums and will need to be taken out and cleaned daily. A fixed full denture will be anchored to adjacent teeth and won’t need to be removed for cleaning.

What Is a Partial Set?

A partial set of dentures will replace missing or diseased teeth but you’ll keep your healthy, natural teeth. Your partial will be clasped onto adjacent teeth and will need to be removed each night for cleaning. A partial differs from a bridge because a bridge is permanently installed.

What Are Flexible Partials?

Flexible partial dentures are made from flexible material that bends, which can be more comfortable than a rigid partial denture. The clasps are also flexible and both are gum-colored so they blend in with your natural teeth.

What Is an Implant-Supported Denture?

An implant-supported denture is affixed to permanently installed dental implants—usually two or four implants. It’s typically installed in the lower jaw only since the upper jaw doesn’t need as much stability. Like a traditional denture, an implant-supported denture needs to be removed every night and cleaned.

What Are All-on-Four Dentures?

This technique provides a full set of artificial teeth that are permanently affixed to previously installed dental implants, and usually only in the lower jaw. All-on-Four dentures combine increased biting power with the convenience of a fixed denture set.

How Do I Get Dentures Made?

Several steps are involved in getting new a denture set made and the steps will vary depending on your needs; each process is unique. Factors that will influence the process include the type of dentures desired, the condition of existing teeth, and your overall oral health. The first step is for the dentist to conduct a thorough exam of your teeth and gums, and then make impressions and measurements so that your denture set will replicate your teeth.

At this point, teeth will be extracted as necessary and you’ll be supplied with a temporary denture; implants will be installed if applicable. When your permanent denture set is ready, your dentist will install it and adjust it for proper function and comfort.

How Much Does a Set of Dentures Cost?

A new denture set will vary in price depending on several factors. The type of denture set needed, the cost of materials, and any extractions and prep work that needs to be done can all affect the total cost of new dentures. Our dentists can help you determine the affordable quality dentures that will best fit your needs. Contact our office today and we’ll answer your questions and schedule a consultation with one of our dedicated dentists. Let us help you get new dentures in Woodstock.

Why Get a Soft Reline for Dentures?

Usually, dentures are lined with a hard acrylic material. This can occasionally cause discomfort for some people. A soft denture reline uses a pliable, soft substance that lasts for about two years and alleviates the pain and sore spots that can occur with traditional dentures.
