At TruGLO Modern Dental, all patients receive excellent general dentistry and denture care. In addition, we offer a wide range of treatments for your smile, from routine checkups to restorative care. One of them is denture treatments.
WHAT ARE DENTURES?
Dentures can be excellent teeth replacements. They’re a prosthesis for replacing your missing teeth. Dentures’ designs enable removability for maintenance and cleaning. In addition, removable dentures can be crafted for one to a whole row of teeth on your jaw.
Modern dentures are natural-looking and more comfortable than in the past. They do take some time to get used to and won’t ever feel exactly like your real teeth.
THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF DENTURES
Dentures come in two types, full and partial. Full complete dentures consist of a thin acrylic base that’s the same color as your gums. The base that rests on your gums gives the appearance of natural-looking teeth that emerges from your gums. We recommend complete dentures for patients missing a whole row of teeth.
For smiles with gaps showing due to a missing tooth or two, partial dentures are recommended. Partials contain a thin metal framework. This framework will rest close to your gums. Supported by your natural teeth, the framework will attach replacement teeth.
With dental tech advancements, implants can also be used in partial denture treatments. Teeth implants can be used as a base of support to help with the fit and size of the partial. At TruGLO, we know every mouth is unique. Our cosmetic dentists will help create a denture that’s both comfortable and aesthetic.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF GETTING DENTURES?
Patients with missing teeth love dentures for the multitude of benefits they provide. Denture benefits include:
- Increasing one’s self-esteem
- Improving your smile and appearance
- Proving facial muscle support
- Improvement in speech and communication
- Being able to enjoy foods that need teeth to consume
- Custom design comfort and function
- Easy removal and placement
- Easy cleaning and maintenance
- Many insurances provide denture coverage
WHAT ARE THE DISADVANTAGES?
While dentures come with great benefits, there are some potential disadvantages. For one, complete ones can feel bulky, especially an upper set in the mouth roof. Lower ones can feel unstable as well. The instability stems from various muscles such as the tongue that can shift them. Finally, a patient’s unique jaw anatomy can present complications.
WHAT’S THE TREATMENT PROCESS?
For most patients, the denture process is straightforward. First, we get your mouth impressions. Next is obtaining a bite measurement. After the measure fits the denture to see how it will look, the final step will be the actual insertion of the denture.
HOW LONG DO DENTURES LAST?
A properly cared denture can last you several years. However, it’s normal for dentures to gradually wear out in this time range due to wear and tear. Add in the fact that your gums can also change shape and size. Due to these factors, our office recommends replacing your dentures every several years.
WHAT ARE THE COSTS OF GETTING DENTURES?
Determining the final cost of getting dentures will depend on many factors. Questions that factor into prices include:
- Is there a need for tooth extraction or not?
- Does the patient have dental insurance?
- Is there insurance coverage for implants?
- Is partial or complete full set needed?
- How many total visits will be needed for the procedure?
- Once we know the answers, we will be able to provide accurate costs.
