Are Dentures Meant to Replace Teeth?
A denture is a type of dental prosthetic that replaces missing teeth to provide help with biting, chewing, speaking and supporting your facial structure. Most dentures consist of one or more teeth attached to a plate or bridge. A denture can create an attractive and unbroken line of teeth to enhance your smile and to provide you with greater confidence in your everyday activities.
What Styles of Dentures Are Available?
At American Dental Center, we offer affordable quality dentures to help you and your family to achieve the best possible results from your dental care. Some of the most common denture options offered by our team include the following:
A complete or full denture is a full replacement of natural teeth on the upper or lower jaw. This process typically requires the removal of all your remaining natural teeth, which may require one or more appointments with our dentists. Once your gums have recovered from this process, your dentist will measure your gums and take impressions to make sure your new upper or lower denture fits as precisely as possible. In some cases, you may also need dental implants before your permanent dentures can be fabricated.
If you are missing a few teeth in the same area of your mouth, a partial denture will provide added help in filling these gaps in your smile and providing you with the healthiest mouth. These denture options usually use clasps and clamps to hold the artificial teeth in place and to allow their removal at the end of the day.
Flexible Partial Denture
Comfort is a primary concern for many of the patients at American Dental Center. Flexible partial dentures are an ideal way to stay comfortable and to enjoy the most practical and positive solutions for missing teeth without the bulk or pressure sometimes found with traditional partial denture bridges. The flexible material used to construct these dental appliances will typically blend in with the color of your gums to make it less obvious that you are wearing dentures.
Traditional dentures on the upper and lower arches are attached to the gums through the use of adhesive materials that hold these dental prosthetics in place. For even greater security, your dentist may recommend the use of dental implants to create solid attachment points in your jawbone that will allow permanent or removable dentures to stay in place even when biting, chewing or speaking in an animated or forceful way. Implants are an ideal solution for patients who may be concerned about the embarrassment possible if a denture should slip out of place or fall out of the mouth.
Should I Choose All-on-4® Dentures?
One of the most innovative and practical options for patients with a significant number of missing or damaged teeth is the All-on-4® denture application. These procedures require the application of four implants for the upper or lower part of the mouth to support a whole row of teeth. These dental implants are allowed to heal in place. Once they are ready, a full upper or lower denture is permanently attached to these anchorage points. All-on-4 procedures offer a permanent solution for replacement teeth that feel natural and can be cared for just like your original teeth.
What Are the Steps of the Denture Process?
You may require removal of teeth in preparation for your denture application. Our experts will work with you to determine the best options and to provide you with affordable quality dentures that suit your needs and your budget. If you prefer implant-supported dentures, we will work with you to create a program that allows you to fully heal before any more work is completed in your mouth. Generally, your dentures process will take a few steps, but we will do our best to make it as painless and as fast as possible.
How Much Will I Pay for My Dentures?
Your dentures cost will depend on a few factors, including the need for dental implants, the materials used to create your false teeth and the amount of preparatory work needed before your impressions can be taken and your denture fabricated. The team at American Dental Center will discuss your options with you and will work with your dental plan to make sure as much of your treatment is covered as is possible.
Is a Soft Denture Reline Necessary?
A denture reline is a great way to ensure the greatest degree of comfort for denture wearers. The soft and pliable material that is used to line the inside of uppers or lowers will provide a snug fit and improved comfort for denture wearers.
