What Are Dentures?
Did you have teeth extracted and wish you had asked the dentist to put a crown on them instead? You can’t change what happened, but you can change your smile with a full or partial denture. Today’s dentures fit well, look natural and they provide a major boost in your self-esteem.
What is a Denture’s Purpose?
A denture will replace several teeth in an arch or the entire set of teeth with natural looking replacements. A denture is custom made from high quality materials, so it fits well and functions like natural teeth.
What Types of Affordable Quality Dentures Can I Expect to Find?
You have far more choices of affordable quality denture solutions than your parents or grandparents had, which can make it difficult to choose. You’ll find a denture that is right for you with help from our dentist.
What Do People Mean When They Talk About a Complete Denture?
A complete denture replaces all of your upper or lower teeth. You may need unhealthy teeth extracted before being fitted for a complete denture, which we can do here in our office. A full denture can be either removable or fixed. When you schedule a denture consultation, our dentist can help you decide which type you would prefer.
What is a Partial Dental Denture?
Our dentist will suggest a partial denture when you still have healthy teeth, but need an affordable way to replace the missing ones. Metal clasps hold the denture in place, although you can still remove the denture at night.
Are Flexible Partial Dentures Strong?
While a flexible partial denture is light and flexible for comfort, it is also strong. The flexible partial denture cost is more than that of a hard acrylic denture, but many of our patients feel that the advantages outweigh the slightly higher cost.
Is an Implant-Supported Denture a Fixed Restoration?
An implant-supported denture, where the denture sits on top of the implant, can be either a removable or a permanent denture.
What is the All-on-4® Dentures Treatment Concept?
The technique uses four implants on either the upper or the lower jaw to hold a denture permanently in place. Two of the implants are vertical, while two are placed at an angle. This concept gives the wearer the biting power of natural teeth with only four implant placements.
What Happens When You Get a Denture for the First Time?
While the different types of dentures have different steps, the basic procedure is the same. After any extractions, our dentist takes an impression so that your custom denture fits you perfectly. If you have chosen to get implants, your dentist will place them at this stage. You go home to heal and come back when you custom denture comes back from the dental lab.
What Do Dentures Cost?
There are various types of dentures in Suffolk; it is impossible for our dentist to provide you with an estimate until you have an examination first. You may need extractions or you may want upgraded material options, so we need to discuss your options with you. Schedule an appointment today and our dentist will estimate your cost after your examination and a consultation.
What Would a Soft Denture Reline Do?
A soft reline gives you a comfortable fit as your gum rests on a pliable material that has molded to the shape of your gum. Your gum shape will change over time, creating sore spots that make you hesitant to wear your denture all day. A soft reline will last for several years, until you have the affordable reline done once again.
