If you have few natural teeth left in your mouth, a denture may be the best solution for you. Modern dentures are so lifelike that you might not realize that some of your friends and co-workers with attractive smiles are wearing a denture.
Can You Explain What Dentures Are?
A denture can replace all or some of the missing teeth in your upper or lower jaw. There are fixed and removable dentures for all budgets. Well-fitting dentures allow you to eat and speak clearly, and they do not hurt your mouth.
What Are My Choices When I’m Looking for Affordable Quality Dentures?
After a careful examination, our dentist will let you know which of the options below can restore your smile and he or she will help you decide on the best one based on your lifestyle and your budget.
What Are Full Dentures?
A full denture contains a full set of either upper or lower artificial teeth. The denture can either be permanently anchored by implants, removable and supported by implants, or a traditional removable denture that rests on your gums. A removable denture is generally the most affordable option to replace missing teeth.
When is a Partial Denture Better Than a Full Denture?
After an examination, our dentist will let you know if you have enough healthy teeth to make a partial denture feasible. You don’t want healthy teeth pulled since they help keep your jawbone from degrading.
What Are the Advantages of Flexible Partial Dentures?
The advantages of choosing a flexible, rather than a rigid, partial denture include, virtual invisibility, durability despite their light weight and their thinness.
What is the Advantage of Having an Implant-Supported Denture?
A fixed or removable implant supported denture never slips while you are speaking. They also eliminate the need to use messy dental adhesives.
Are All-on-4® Dentures Supported by Implants?
All-on-4 dentures are either an upper or a lower denture that is anchored by four implants that fuse with the jawbone to provide the biting strength of natural teeth. The denture is permanent and the implants ensure that you’ll never have to worry about a denture slipping again. Call us to schedule a consultation and to learn more about these and other dentures in South Hampton Roads available through our office.
How Do I Get Dentures?
After having any extractions that you may need, our dentist will take an impression of your gum to send to the dental lab, where they will fabricate a custom-made denture designed to fit you perfectly. Once our dentist receives the denture, you will return and he or she will make sure that your new denture fits properly.
What Does a High Quality Denture Cost?
While we only offer high quality dentures, they are still affordable. Your dentures cost is determined by a wide variety of factors, including which type of denture you would like, the number of extractions you may need and whether you have dental insurance. One of our dentists can give you an estimated total price for your new denture after an examination.
Will a Soft Denture Reline Make My Dentures More Comfortable?
Yes, instead of hard, rigid acrylic, your gums will love the soft, pliable reline material. It will last several years and the reline will eliminate sore spots from forming on your gums.
