A denture is, simply put, an acrylic plate to which artificial teeth have been attached. This plate fits snugly into your mouth against your gums and allows these teeth to serve as a replacement for your natural teeth. In some cases, your denture may be secured to your jaw and gums with implanted posts or easily removable for cleaning and comfort.
Your dentist may recommend permanent or removable dentures or full or partial plates depending on the number of missing teeth and the strength of the bone structure in your gums. We will work with you to make sure that you receive the right dentures to help you look your best and feel great when biting, chewing, smiling and speaking in your everyday life.
If most of your teeth are decaying or damaged, a full denture can provide a uniform and attractive appearance for your smile and can help you enjoy greater confidence in dealing with others and managing your professional and social interactions. Our dentists can provide you with expert advice and guidance in choosing the right solutions for your needs.
If you are only missing a few teeth, a partial denture can fill in these gaps to restore your smile and help you feel much more confident. Partial dentures can be permanent or removable depending on your preferences and your budgetary constraints.
Flexible partial dentures can sometimes provide a more comfortable experience for our patients. These dental appliances are designed to move more naturally with the jaw and allow greater flexibility when chewing and speaking.
Permanent denture appliances are usually attached using dental implants that require a relatively lengthy period of healing before the denture can be applied to this anchorage point. Your doctor will fill you in on the details of your treatment plan and the approximate time needed from start to finish.
If your dentist has recommended All-on-4 dentures, you will need to undergo implants in four precise locations on your upper or lower jaw. Your denture will then be attached to these implants to provide you with a permanent solution for missing or damaged teeth.
Your dentist will conduct an initial examination and consultation where he or she will discuss with you the treatment plan that will work best for your denture needs. In general, you will be scheduled for extractions early on in the process. Impressions will be taken and your new dental appliances fabricated after that process is complete.
The cost of your dentures will vary depending on the amount of work needed to prepare your mouth and the type of denture you receive.
A soft denture reline is used to adjust the fit of your denture after it has been fabricated and after your gums have had time to heal. It is intended to improve comfort after your denture procedure.
