What Should I Know About Dentures?

People often talk about dentures as a way to replace missing teeth, yet you may not realize all of the things that a quality set of dentures can do for your smile. Whether you require a full or partial denture, this type of dental appliance replaces lost teeth so that you can chew, talk, and smile normally again. Although dentures are not always permanent, they can last for many years with proper care.

What Are the Different Types of Dentures?

One of the first things that our dentists will discuss with you are the options that you have available. This is based on a careful assessment of your teeth, gums, and jaw. If you need to have all of your teeth replaced along the upper or lower jaw, then a full set of dentures can be offered. These can be removable, or you can choose to have them placed with dental implants so that they are less likely to slip around. Partial dentures and a flexible partial dentures work a lot like a bridge. However, they are not placed permanently on the adjacent teeth. Instead, flexible or metal clasps can be used to hold it in place. Implant-supported dentures are another option that is often used along the lower jaw to add more stability.

On Average, What Do Dentures Cost?

The desire to find affordable quality dentures is natural, yet it is hard to say exactly how much your set will cost until our dentists are able to take a look at your teeth and gums. Typically, you can expect to pay more if you have a lot of teeth that require extraction. Yet, there are still options that allow you to have some control over the cost. When you need dentures in Abington, our dentists will talk to you about how each aspect of your treatment plan affects your choices as well as the costs associated with replacing your teeth. Call our office and our helpful staff can give you more information.

What Should I Expect When Getting Dentures?

There are several steps that will be used during the process of giving you dentures. Whether you need a full denture or a partial one, our dentists always begin by taking impressions of your teeth. They will also take measurements to ensure that everything fits properly. This helps to make sure that you feel comfortable with your denture from the moment it is put in your mouth. Extractions may also be done during this time or at a subsequent appointment if they are needed. Then, you are given a temporary denture to help you eat and speak while your long-term appliance is being custom-made. Once your new denture arrives, the dentist will make sure it fits and perform any adjustments that are needed.

Should I Need a Soft Denture Reline?

The need for a denture reline varies according to how you adjust to your dentures and your personal comfort level along the gum line. This procedure simply involves replacing the hard acrylic used on the base of the denture with a softer, flexible material that feels better in your mouth. This is often the ideal solution for common denture issues such as sore spots.

Do All-on-Four Dentures Cost More?

It is important to understand that when our dentists recommend All-on-Four sets, they are more concerned about the long-term comfort of your new dentures. While implant-supported dentures may cost more than a removable denture, many people find that having the added stability of implants reduces any discomfort and self-consciousness they feel during the adjustment period. Our dentists will work with you to ensure that you receive affordable quality dentures that you will love.
