Are some of your teeth missing? Do you need to have some extracted? Getting a partial or full denture treatment in Upper Darby can restore your smile.

What’s the Purpose of Dentures?

Your appearance has likely changed if you’ve lost some of your teeth. Missing teeth also make eating and speaking more difficult. Dentures are customized dental appliances that fix these issues. They include either a permanent implant or removable frame with artificial teeth attached. The replacement teeth match the natural shape and color of your real teeth.

These appliances also support the structure of your face. They last for several years as long as you properly care for them. This makes them a good investment for your oral health.

Which Type of Denture Is Affordable?

Several kinds of affordable, quality dentures exist. However, our dental professionals can conduct an exam and then provide a recommendation for your situation. Listed below are a few of the options that are available.

What Are Complete or Full Dentures?

A complete denture is the same as a full denture. Whether on the lower or upper jaw, it replaces all of your missing teeth. If any remain, they are removed before the removable or permanent denture can be placed. Your gums must also heal before the fitting. The removable type sits on your gums, while the permanent type is surgically anchored into your jaw.

Partial Denture: What Is It?

Partial dentures are removable devices that let you keep your natural teeth. They simply replace the missing tooth or teeth on a row. Using a bridge-like structure, they consist of one or more crowns and clips that slide over your natural, supporting teeth. You remove them for cleaning every night.

What Are Flexible Partial Dentures?

Different from a conventional partial device, flexible partial dentures do not have rigid bases or metal clips. Instead, they are made of flexible materials that are more comfortable and bend with your mouth. They also blend with your gums because they are gum-colored, making your smile more noticeable than the devices.

How Does an Implant-Supported Denture Work?

Rather than resting on your gums like a traditional denture, implant-support dentures stay in place by using implants as support. They come in permanent and removable varieties. We can determine how many implants you’ll need after your consultation with a dental professional.

The removable devices that are available are bar-retained and ball-retained. Bar-retained devices use up to five implants to connect to the denture, and the clasps attach to a metal bar. Ball-retained appliances use metal sockets and attachments that are ball-shaped to connect to implants.

A fixed denture is another name for the permanent variety. It securely anchors to two or more implants. You can talk, smile, brush your teeth, and eat with the device, like you would with real teeth.

What Is the Process for Getting a Denture?

It takes several steps to get dentures in Upper Darby, depending on your denture choice and dental health. Your dentist will record measurements and take impressions in order to ensure a denture that fits your mouth. If you have diseased teeth remaining, those will be removed before the permanent appliance is installed. In that case, you might need to wear a temporary denture. After your gums heal, you will receive your denture and adjustments as necessary. Talk to us for further details.

What Is the Cost of Dentures?

Everyone’s dentures cost varies depending on the denture that they want, the materials needed to make it, individual insurance benefits provided and the preparatory treatments needed. You can access affordable options at our office in Upper Darby. Set up a consultation so that we can provide you with an accurate estimate.

Denture Soft Reline: What Is It?

A soft denture reline is an adjustment that uses a soft material instead of hard acrylic for lining. It stays pliable for up to two years and can relieve denture pain.
