Tooth loss is a dental health issue that affects millions of people each year. It can be caused by advanced gum disease, untreated tooth decay, and even age. If you have several missing teeth, dentures in Florida can help you regain your smile’s radiance and restore your confidence.
What Is the Procedure for Getting Dentures?
In many cases, getting started with our affordable quality dentures involves multiple steps. At a first visit, one of our skilled dentists will assess your smile and bite and decide what type of denture will work best for you. If a full denture is selected, you will undergo extractions if there are any teeth remaining. Implants will be placed beforehand if you have chosen an implant-supported denture. Our dentists will provide you with a temporary appliance to wear while your mouth heals. After your gums have recovered, you’ll be ready to wear your new denture and enjoy a brilliant smile.
What Types of Dentures Are Offered?
Our skilled dentists offer patients a full range of dentures in Florida to restore their smiles. To learn more about the following types of dentures, please get in touch with our office.
Full and Partial Denture
A full denture acts as a replacement for a complete row of missing or diseased teeth. Full dentures can be removable or fixed in place, and they can be used as an upper or lower denture. Most appliances are crafted using durable gum-colored acrylic, porcelain, and metal. When receiving a full denture, you will need to undergo extractions if any teeth are remaining.
When you still have several healthy teeth, a partial denture can help you restore areas of your mouth that are affected by tooth loss. Clasps are used to attach the partial to surrounding teeth, making the appliance easy to remove for cleaning.
Flexible Partial Denture
Denture wear can be a comfortable and discreet experience with a flexible partial denture. A flexible partial conforms to your mouth, moving as you chew and speak. Gum-colored clasps and a pliable base make the device realistic looking when worn.
If you have retained enough bone to support dental implants, your dentist may suggest an implant-supported device. Implant-supported dentures offer a stable, mess-free wearing experience and can be fixed or removable. With a removable device, you’ll simply remove the denture for cleaning. Implant-supported appliances are often used as lower dentures because of their stability.
How Much Will Dentures Cost?
The price of a new dental appliance is determined by several factors. The procedures required beforehand, the type of appliance chosen, and the materials used to create the denture will factor into your charges.
