How Can Dentures Help You?

If you are self-conscious, uncomfortable, or have lost dental function due to lost or missing teeth, dentures may be the ideal solution for you. These dental appliances serve as artificial replacement teeth attached to a frame or dental implant. They can be either permanent or fixed, depending on your dental needs and preferences. Along with improving your self-esteem, these appliances can restore your dental function, comfort, and appearance. They are able to uphold your facial structure, which often changes when it’s no longer supported by your teeth. They are a wise investment in your dental wellbeing because they can last for more than a decade with regular cleanings and care.

Are There Different Kinds of Dentures?

You can find several kinds of affordable quality dentures today. Let our experienced dentists conduct a thorough dental evaluation to determine your denture options and help you decide on the right denture for your needs. A list of the primary choices for dentures in Alexandria are featured below.

What Is the Distinction Between Partial and Full Dentures?

As the name suggests, a full denture replaces all of your upper and lower natural teeth. Any existing teeth get extracted and then you wear a temporary denture until your gums heal. Once your gums are completely healed, your dentist will carefully fit your new permanent denture to ensure your proper function and comfort. A full denture can be removable and simply remain on the gums, or it can be fixed, which means that it is permanently secured with dental implants.

With a partial denture, you are able to retain your existing healthy teeth while replacing any teeth you have lost. It has a bridge-like structure, but it’s not permanently bonded to the surrounding teeth like a bridge. Instead, a partial denture has metal clasps that attach to the teeth on both sides of the missing tooth. This makes it removable for nightly cleanings.

How Is a Flexible Partial Denture Unique?

Flexible partial dentures trade a firm base and noticeable metal clasps for a supple, flexible foundation and flexible clasps that moves to comfortably fit your mouth. Rather than glaring metal, a flexible partial denture is comprised of gum-colored material, so no one will be able tell that your teeth aren’t real.

Do You Need Implant-Supported Dentures?

Rather than rest upon the gums like a traditional denture, implant-supported dentures are permanently inserted into your jawbone with two or four dental implants. Upper teeth usually don’t demand implant support, so these tend to be used to replace bottom teeth. These dentures still get removed every evening for a thorough cleaning, just like traditional dentures.

Why Do Some People Prefer All-on-Four Dentures?

This special implant method uses only four dental implants placed in the lower jaw to secure a full set of dentures. Many prefer this technique because it offers the ease of a fixed denture and stronger biting capabilities.

Does It Take a Lot of Time to Get Dentures?

There are only a few steps involved in the denture placement process, yet the technique can vary slightly based on your dental health and the type of denture you choose. First, our dentist will take your dental measurements to craft a dental impression that precisely mimics your bite. Then, we will extract any damaged or diseased teeth and give you a temporary denture until your permanent one is created. But if you opt for an implant-supported denture, we will place your dental implants at this time instead of later.

We will contact you when your partial or full denture is ready for placement. To ensure your full comfort and function with your new dental appliance, our dentist will make any adjustments you need.

What Is the Cost for Dentures?

If you are concerned about finding affordable quality dentures, you need to realize that many factors affect what dentures cost, such as the kind you select, whether you need any prior preparation, and the materials used to create the denture. When you visit our dental practice, our compassionate dentists can help you get the denture to fit your budget and your smile. For a consultation with one of our knowledgeable dentists, contact our practice today.

What Is Considered a Soft Denture Reline?

This type of denture is made of a pliable, soft substance that is more flexible and comfortable than the firm acrylic lining of a traditional denture. This means there’s less of a risk for dental pain and soreness. And the soft material can stay supple for up to a couple of years, so it provides long-term comfort.

If you have lost teeth over time and are considering dentures to replace them, you can depend on our dental practice to supply you with the highest-quality and most comfortable denture for you. Please call our office right away and we will be happy to give you more details.
