Have missing teeth affected your ability to speak, chew, or even smile? With dentures in Deptford, you can restore your smile’s brilliance and function.
What is the Process for Getting Dentures?
Our dentists provide patients with affordable quality dentures over a series of steps. During an initial visit, your dentist will record measurements of your teeth and jaw, and may also make impressions of your mouth. This ensures that your dentures perfectly replicate your smile and bite. If necessary, diseased teeth will be extracted before your denture is fitted. For an implant-supported denture, implants will be placed before your permanent denture arrives. Once the appliance is created, your dentist will adjust your denture to ensure perfect fit and function.
What Are the Different Types of Dentures?
There are several types of dentures available today. After a thorough examination, your dentist will determine which type will best restore your smile. Some of the denture options include:
Full or Partial Denture
Sometimes known as a complete denture, a full denture can replace each missing tooth in an upper or lower arch. To receive a complete denture, your dentist must extract any existing teeth. You’ll receive a temporary denture to wear that same day. Once your mouth has healed, your dentist will fit your new full denture. A complete denture can be fixed or removable, depending on your unique needs. If you still have several healthy teeth, a partial denture might be right for you. Partials function similarly to a bridge, featuring a row of teeth that attach to adjacent healthy teeth. Clasps on each side of the partial allow you to remove it with ease.
Flexible Partial Denture
If you’re looking for a lightweight and comfortable alternative to rigid partial dentures, a flexible partial may be right for you. These appliances do not include metal clasps; this creates a discreet denture-wearing experience. The appliances look completely natural, so no one will have to know you are wearing a denture.
Instead of resting on the gums like a traditional denture, an implant-supported denture is secured in the mouth using two or more dental implants. Typically, dentists recommend these devices as a lower denture; an upper denture usually doesn’t need the increased stability. Like other types of dental appliances, an implant-supported denture can be removed for cleaning.
How Much Will Dentures Cost?
Getting dentures can be a significant medical and financial decision. However, restored function to your smile often makes the cost well worth it. Usually, the cost of dentures depends on the type chosen, the complexity of your tooth loss, and the number of dental appointments needed to fit your appliance. Please give us a call for more details about our affordable quality dentures.
How Do Dentures Work?
Dentures in Deptford are an excellent treatment option for those who are missing several teeth. These custom-fitted dental devices usually consist of pontic teeth attached to a permanent implant or removable frame. A denture can support your facial structure, allowing your mouth to function normally. Don’t let tooth loss have a negative impact on your life – call us now to make an appointment.
What Is a Soft Denture Reline?
Soft relines for dentures can help reduce sore spots and pain caused by regular denture wear. During a soft reline, your dentist attaches a flexible, comfortable material to the underside of your appliance. This allows the denture to sit comfortably on the gum line without irritating your mouth. Don’t let denture pain disrupt your life – call us to learn about our soft reline options.
