Types of Dentures
This form of dentures is used to replace an entire row of teeth. Full dentures are composed of a gum-like acrylic base with false teeth attached at the artificial gum line. With improved dental technology and techniques, full dentures are more comfortable than ever before.
Partial dentures are a viable option for replacing a smaller group of teeth. Similar to full dentures, they still consist of an acrylic base and false teeth. Partial dentures contain metal clips that attach to the remaining teeth surrounding the gap.
This innovative treatment is quickly becoming a preferred method for tooth replacement. Implant-supported dentures offer the same functionality and appearance as full dentures but with enhanced stability. These dentures snap on to as few as four dental implants to eliminate slipping, clicking, or unwanted movement. Dental implants are small, titanium posts that are surgically fused to your jawbone and serve as the foundation for restorative dental work.
How much do dentures cost?
The cost of dentures ranges depending on each patient’s specific needs and what kind of dentures are being placed. During your first visit, we’ll discuss your options and provide you with a full cost breakdown of each. We offer several financial solutions to make paying for treatment more manageable.
How should I clean my dentures?
Your dentures should be removed after every meal to rid them of leftover food particles. You should also be brushing them with a non-abrasive denture cleanser daily. Before bedtime, remember to remove your dentures and soak them in a denture solution.
How long does it take to get dentures?
Getting new dentures requires several appointments over an extended period of time. The process involves taking impressions, creating molds, and making several adjustments to your final restorative piece. Treatment times vary from patient to patient and we will be able to create a more precise treatment plan for you during your initial consultation.
