We are open - safety is our top priority!
Many people suffer from missing or damaged teeth due to age, tooth decay, trauma, or advanced gum disease. Fortunately, our affordable dentures in Voorhees can help you regain your smile’s look and function.
What Are the Denture Procedure Steps?
Receiving new dentures usually involves several steps, which vary depending on the type of denture your dentist recommends. During an initial appointment, your dentist will create impressions of your mouth and take measurements of your teeth and bite. This ensures that the new denture perfectly replicates your smile and bite. If preliminary procedures like tooth extractions and implants are required, they will need to be completed before you can receive your dentures. After your mouth has healed from any procedures, your dentist will secure and adjust your permanent denture.
How Many Types of Dentures Are Available?
Dentures in Voorhees are available in several different styles to meet your needs. Whether you’re missing one tooth or several, our dentists can help. Call us today to learn more about the following denture options:
Full or Partial Dentures
If you are missing the majority of your teeth due to disease or injury, a full denture may be a great option for you. These appliances can replace a full row of teeth either in the upper or lower jaw. A full denture can be placed traditionally (on the gum line) or can be secured in place using dental implants. All affected teeth must be extracted before receiving a full denture. Patients who still have healthy teeth may be good candidates for a partial denture. Partials function similarly to a bridge, consisting of a row of pontic teeth attached to adjacent teeth. The appliance features clasps on each side that allow you to move the denture for cleaning. To learn more about full or partial dental appliances, please contact our office.
Flexible Partial Denture
People looking for a soft, comfortable alternative to traditional rigid acrylic dentures may wish to consider a flexible partial. These appliances are created using bendable, natural-looking materials that are virtually invisible in the mouth. Flexible partials are also simple to clean, allowing you to enjoy good oral hygiene.
If you are missing several teeth but have retained ample jawbone, an implant-supported denture may be an excellent choice for you. Secured in place using two or more dental implants, these appliances offer increased stability and can even promote jaw health. This type of denture is typically used for the lower jaw; the upper jaw often doesn’t require the enhanced stability.
How Much Will Dentures Cost Overall?
The cost of denture treatment usually depends on multiple factors, including the type of denture chosen, the amount of preliminary treatment needed, and the cost of all denture materials. At our practice, we’re committed to helping people obtain affordable quality dentures that restore smiles. Call us now to learn more about our payment options.
What Are Dentures or Partial Dentures?
Our affordable quality dentures serve as natural-looking, fully functioning replacements for missing teeth. These devices usually consist of a frame and a row of artificial teeth. They can be affixed to the gums or securely held in place using dental implants. In addition to restoring your smile, dentures also improve your jaw function and facial structure.
Is a Soft Reline for Dentures Easy to Get?
Pain caused by dentures can have a negative impact on your daily activities. When this occurs, consider seeing a dentist for a soft denture reline. During this simple and affordable treatment, the dentist relines your denture with a flexible, soft material. Soft relines can make your dentures feel more comfortable, reducing sore spots in the mouth.
