Tooth loss can occur due to several factors, including your age, tooth decay, injury, or gum disease. When missing teeth are hindering your daily activities, it may be time to consider getting dentures in Roxborough.
Getting dentures can sometimes be a multi-step process. To ensure your dentures fit properly, your dentist may take measurements or create impressions of your teeth and jaw. If you require preliminary dental work like tooth extractions or dental implants, these procedures must be completed before your dentures are placed. Once the affected areas of your mouth have fully healed, the permanent denture will be attached and adjusted for comfort. Contact our office if you have any questions regarding these denture procedure steps.
We offer several options for affordable quality dentures to meet your unique dental needs. Here are a few of the choices offered by our skilled dentists:
Created using a variety of durable materials, a full denture can replace a whole arch of missing or damaged teeth. A traditional full denture rests along the gum line; however, a fixed full denture is secured using dental implants. A full denture is typically placed after the full extraction of any affected teeth. Those who still have healthy teeth remaining may be good candidates for a partial denture. With this type of denture, the appliance is attached to adjacent teeth much like a bridge. Metal clasps allow you to remove the partial for cleaning.
An alternative to inflexible, rigid denture bases, a flexible partial is created using a soft plastic material. Lightweight and easy to clean, flexible partial dentures move with the natural motions of your mouth, allowing you to wear the device comfortably. They are also virtually invisible because they do not utilize metal clasps.
While a traditional dental appliance rests on the gums, an implant-supported denture utilizes dental implants for a secure hold. If you are missing teeth but still have adequate bone in the jaw, you may be an excellent candidate for an implant-supported appliance. These devices offer a stable, secure fit, and are ideal for those who require a lower denture.
When you visit our office for a consultation, your dentist will explain your personalized care plan and provide an estimate of your dentures cost. These charges usually include any necessary preparatory procedures, including extractions and implant placements. Your final charges also factor in the materials used for your dentures and any required follow-up appointments.
Losing teeth can cause several dental health issues, including speaking problems and misalignment of the jaw. However, dentures in Roxborough can help solve these issues by stabilizing your jaw and making it easier to speak and chew. If you’re ready to regain your smile and self-esteem, call us now to learn about our affordable quality dentures.
Denture pain and sore spots are common issues, but it isn’t necessary to suffer through the discomfort. Instead, ask your dentist about a soft reline for your appliance. This simple and inexpensive procedure involves the dentist relining your device with a comfortable, pliable material. Relines can reduce discomfort and make your device easier to wear.
An innovative approach to implant denture treatment, All-on-Four dentures are a full set of teeth that are secured into position with four dental implants. If you’re looking for a solution that offers a secure hold and maximum biting power, give us a call to find out if an All-on-Four denture is right for you.
