When you are missing several teeth, simple daily tasks like chewing and speaking can be a challenge. Getting new dentures in Chesapeake can restore your smile’s look and function, making them an excellent investment in your dental health.
What Is the Process for Receiving Dentures?
If you’ve decided to restore your smile with dentures, our experienced dentists will first examine your teeth and gums to determine what type of device will work for you. Measurements and impressions of your mouth may be taken to serve as the blueprint for your new device. If receiving complete dentures, all teeth in the affected area will need to be extracted. Those who have selected an implant-supported appliance will have to undergo implant surgery before the final appliance arrives. While you recover from any necessary procedures, a temporary denture can be used. To learn more about the process of receiving our affordable quality dentures, contact our office to schedule an appointment.
How Many Denture Types Are Available?
Our skilled dentists provide a host of denture options to meet your needs. Please call our office today to explore the following choices:
Full and Partial Dentures
Dentists often recommend a full denture for those who are suffering from extensive tooth damage or missing most of their teeth. These devices can replace an entire row of teeth on either the top or bottom jaw. Full dentures can be attached using adhesive or secured in place using dental implants. Your dentist will help you decide what type of full denture is best for you.
A partial denture is a bridge-like appliance that uses a clasp system to hook onto the supporting teeth. These dentures are best for those who have several healthy teeth but wish to replace a specific section of missing or damaged teeth. Like a detachable full denture, a partial can be taken off each night for cleaning.
Flexible Partial Dentures
If you want to replace a section of teeth without the use of metal materials, consider a flexible partial. These devices utilize pliable thermoplastic material that bends as you chew or speak. Flexible partials use natural-colored clasps, making them a discreet restorative dental solution.
Implant-supported dentures give the wearer freedom from sticky denture adhesives without sacrificing a secure hold. These devices snap onto the jaw using two or four dental implants, which are placed during a separate procedure. This type of denture is typically recommended for the bottom jaw and is best for those who have retained ample jawbone.
What Is the Price of Dentures?
Our affordable quality dentures are custom-made to replicate your bite and restore your jaw’s function. Your final dentures cost will be determined by the severity of your tooth loss and what preliminary procedures are required. The type of denture selected will also be considered when determining your charges.
What Is a Denture?
A denture is a custom-tailored dental device that acts as a replacement for a full arch or smaller section of teeth. A row of natural-looking artificial teeth are either attached to a durable frame or a set of implants. Dentures in Chesapeake can be detachable or fixed into place, depending on the style chosen.
What Does a Soft Denture Reline Do?
A soft reline is an affordable procedure that involves resurfacing the underside of a dental appliance. The pliable material used in soft relines can significantly reduce sore spots and other discomfort caused by dentures. If your appliance has become difficult to wear, ask about our high-quality reline services.
What Are All-on-Four® Dentures?
An innovative implant denture technique, All-on-Four appliances offer enhanced biting power and excellent stability. During an All-on-Four procedure, four dental implants are added to the lower jaw, creating a stable base for an arch of artificial teeth and tissue.
