If you have one or more missing teeth, our skilled dentists can help. We offer a variety of affordable quality dentures that will allow you to smile with confidence.
Missing teeth not only affect the aesthetics of your smile, but they can also make it difficult to chew and speak properly. Dentures are custom-made prosthetics that can restore the appearance and function of your smile and help support your facial structure. With proper care, your new teeth can last for many years. Call today to find out how our denture specialists can help you regain your smile and self-esteem.
There are many different tooth replacement options available. Our knowledgeable dentists will perform a comprehensive assessment to determine the type of denture that is most appropriate for you.
Full dentures are appropriate when all of the natural teeth in the upper or lower arch need to be replaced. During the first appointment, the dentist will extract all of the remaining teeth and provide you with a temporary denture. Once your gums have healed, you will return to be fitted for either a removable denture that fits on the gums or a fixed denture that is held in place by implant posts anchored in the jawbone.
A partial denture is a removable dental appliance that can be used to replace one or more teeth when there are healthy supporting teeth on both sides. The denture is held in place by clasps that slip over the supporting teeth.
A flexible partial denture is lightweight, comfortable, and more natural looking than traditional partials. There are no metal clasps, and the base is made from flexible material that bends with your mouth.
Unlike a traditional denture that sits on the gum, implant-supported dentures are attached to an implant post. They look and feel just like natural teeth and do not require adhesive strips or pastes. An implant-supported denture can be removable or permanent. The removable versions either clip onto a thin metal bar or have sockets that attach to ball-shaped attachments on the ends of the implants. These are known as bar-retained and ball-retained implants. With permanent implants, the denture is permanently attached to two or more implant posts and cannot be removed.
The exact procedure can vary depending on the type of denture that you choose; however, it normally involves several steps. In most cases, the dentist will start by taking measurements and impressions of your teeth to replicate your bite and ensure that your new teeth fit properly. Any diseased or damaged teeth are extracted, and you are provided with a temporary denture to wear during the healing process. If you and your dentist have determined that an implant supported denture is the right option for you, the implants are surgically inserted into the jaw and allowed to fuse in place before the new teeth are attached. Following the initial denture process, your dentist will work with you to make any adjustments necessary to ensure that your replacement teeth feel and function just like natural teeth.
We are dedicated to making dental care as affordable as possible for our patients. Our experienced dentists can help you find a denture option that will work for your needs and budget. Your final cost will be determined by the type of denture used and the complexity of your dental issues. Call today to schedule a consultation to learn more about our affordable denture options.
A traditional denture has a base made from hard acrylic, which can cause sore spots on the gums. Our dentists can alleviate denture pain by performing a soft reline of your dentures. The process involves lining the denture with a pliable material that can last for up to two years.
You don’t have to live with the embarrassment of missing teeth. Our dentists are here to help you find a top-quality tooth replacement option that is affordable, comfortable, and natural looking. Call today for more information.
