What Occurs During the Dentures Procedure?
When receiving dentures, most patients undergo a series of steps. The first step involves the dentist creating impressions or taking measurements that assist in making your device. If you have damaged teeth, it is necessary to remove them before receiving your denture. Your dentist will provide you with a short-term appliance to wear as your mouth heals. With an implant-supported denture, patients will need to have their implants positioned before the final denture arrives. Most dentures take about 2-3 weeks to be created. After the final appliance arrives, your dentist will ensure it fits securely and comfortably.
What Type of Denture Is Right for Me?
Our office provides multiple types of affordable quality dentures that can accommodate a variety of dental challenges. Get in touch with us now to find out what type is best for you.
Full and Partial Dentures
A full denture is sometimes referred to as a complete denture because it can replace a complete arch of teeth. Best for those who are missing most of their teeth, a full denture can be removable or fixed into place using the implant-supported method. Tooth extractions are often necessary before this type of denture is placed. However, a temporary denture can be worn while your mouth recovers.
With a partial denture, you can retain your healthy teeth while replacing those that are lost or damaged. Partials are bridge-like structures that use clasps that secure them to the supporting teeth. To clean the partial, you simply unhook the appliance from the area.
Flexible partial dentures are a comfortable, virtually invisible method of replacing lost teeth. These lightweight dentures are made using non-rigid materials that flex as your mouth moves. They feature gum-colored clasps for a natural look.
When you receive a traditional denture, you’ll secure it to your gums by using a denture adhesive. With an implant-supported denture, you’ll never have to experience the hassle of sticky denture adhesives. Instead, the appliance is supported by permanent dental implants, allowing you to easily snap on your dentures. This denture type can also be fixed into place permanently.
How Much Does a Denture Cost?
The dentures cost usually varies from person to person, as everyone faces unique oral health challenges. The state of your teeth prior to the procedure, the items used to craft the denture, and the type of denture you choose will all determine your total cost. Please call us for more details about our affordable quality dentures.
What Does a Denture Do?
Dentures in Central Brandon are an effective treatment for missing or severely damaged teeth. They usually consist of a row of natural-looking pontic teeth, which is affixed to a removable titanium frame or a set of implants. These appliances are designed to help you speak and chew with ease while supporting your jaw structure.
What Are Soft Relines for Dentures?
If your dentures have become difficult to wear, a soft denture reline may be the answer. With a soft reline, the dentist attaches a pliable material to the base of your appliance. In most cases, the reline material remains pliable for approximately two years.
What Is the All-on-Four® Dentures Technique?
A new approach to denture implant treatment, the All-on-Four dentures procedure involves the dentist attaching a set of pontic teeth to four implants in the bottom jaw. With this type of denture, you’ll benefit from a secure hold and great biting power. Contact us today to find out more.
