Will Dentures Benefit You?
If your missing teeth are causing changes in your appearance, reduced dental function, and a loss of self-esteem, then dentures may be the solution for you. A denture is a dental appliance that holds a set of replacement teeth on either a removable case or a permanent dental implant. It can last over a decade with regular care and cleaning. Most importantly, a denture can help restore your attractiveness, function, dental health, confidence, and quality of life.
Do Dentures Come in Different Varieties?
Yes, and you can find a full range kinds of dentures in Lutz. For affordable quality dentures near you, simply visit our dental practice. Our dentist will perform a complete dental exam and then help you find the denture that fits all of your personal, dental, and financial needs. Please see the following questions below to learn more about your denture options.
Are Partial or Full Dentures Better for You?
If you are missing only one or a couple of teeth, then a partial denture will meet your needs. These let you restore the teeth you’ve lost while maintaining your healthy teeth. They feature a bridge framework to hold replacement teeth, along with clasps that connect to the teeth on both sides to keep the denture in place. These clasps allow for easy removal for nightly cleanings.
But a full denture is right for you if you need to replace all or most of the teeth in your bottom or top jaw. You will be able to choose between fixed full dentures that are firmly attached with dental implants or a removable full denture that sits above your gums. With a full denture, your dentist must first remove any existing teeth and then have you wear a temporary denture until your gums have healed. When you’ve healed a few weeks later, you will receive your permanent denture.
Why Choose a Flexible Partial Denture?
These dentures are ideal if you want a more natural-looking, comfortable denture. Rather than having shiny metal clasps and a hard foundation, these are crafted out of a limber, softer substance that matches the color of your gums for complete discretion and much more comfortable daily wear.
Why Should You Consider Implant-Supported Dentures?
These are firmly secured in your mouth with two or four dental implants rather than sitting atop your gums and running the risk of slipping like a traditional denture. These are mainly made for lower teeth which often need greater support than upper teeth. Just be aware that this denture still needs to be taken out each night and cleaned like traditional dentures.
What Do All-on-Four Dentures Offer?
Basically, they can give you more chewing strength with the ease of fixed dentures. They are placed through a new dental technique that secures a complete set of replacement teeth with just four dental implants strategically embedded in the bottom jaw.
What Is the Typical Denture Procedure?
While the placement procedure can vary slightly by your overall dental health and the kind of denture you choose, most procedures follow these simple steps:
- Dental impressions will be made and oral measurements will be taken to produce your permanent denture.
- All unhealthy teeth will be pulled.
- Our dentist will give you a temporary denture for daily use until your permanent denture is ready.
- If you have selected an implant-supported denture, your dentist will embed your implants into your jaw.
- Once we have crafted your permanent denture, your dentist will position it properly and make any adjustments you’d like.
Are You Worried about the Amount Dentures Cost?
No need to be concerned because our dentist can help you get affordable quality dentures. The cost of a denture varies by the variety you select and whether you require any prior treatment, but we can make sure you receive a denture that suits your personal needs. Call us today to set up a convenient consultation.
Why Consider a Soft Reline for Your Dentures?
Rather than suffer the pain and soreness caused by the typical firm acrylic lining of a denture, you can get a soft denture reline. This is a special lining that is softer, more flexible, and can stay lithe for several years to provide long-term freedom from denture discomfort.
