Types of Dentures?

There are several types of dentures, all of which we can provide:

Full Set Lower Denture

Conventional/Full

Conventional or full dentures replace all of the teeth in your mouth. They are ideal if most of your teeth are missing or sick. Before creating these dentures, we will remove any remaining teeth and wait for your tissues to heal.
Partial Denture Lower Molars

Partial

Partial dentures are a common choice if you still have some natural teeth that are healthy. In most cases, these are connected to a plastic base. That base may also have a metal framework to keep it in place.
Implant Supported Denture

Implant-Supported

Implant-supported dentures are very similar to overdentures. Instead of your natural teeth supporting the dentures for stability, dental implants fill the same role. They are a common option when your jawbone is strong enough to support the implants.

It is common for new dentures to feel slightly awkward as you get used to them. The problems tend to disappear quickly, however. We will always schedule follow-up appointments after giving you your dentures to ensure the fit is correct and you do not have any issues with them.

Like natural teeth, dentures require proper care, including daily brushing. You should store them in water and in a safe place. You will also need to brush your tongue, gums, and the roof of the mouth before putting in the dentures.

No Longer Worry About Eating or Talking

When you have a lot of missing teeth, it becomes hard to eat and talk. You may not be able to enjoy your favorite foods, as you can’t chew them. There may be issues with pronunciation when you talk.

Missing teeth can also weaken your jawbones. This can lead to facial sagging. The lack of teeth may also affect your smile. Even with your mouth closed, your mouth may not look as “full” as expected. This can lead to self-confidence problems.

Enjoy Your Favorite Foods Again

Most dentures look like natural teeth, and people are unlikely to even notice that you have dentures. This can bring back your confidence in your smile. When your mouth is closed, it will have the expected amount of fullness.

With dentures, you will find yourself able to eat your favorite foods again. Your dentures will bite and chew like natural teeth, so you are no longer limited as to what you can eat.

If you had problems speaking due to your missing teeth, dentures can restore your ease of speaking.

Depending on the type of dentures you have, they can even help preserve your jawbone. This can prevent the facial sagging associated with a weak jawbone.

FAQ

What are dentures?

Dentures are removable dental appliances that replace missing teeth and surrounding gum tissue. They can help restore your ability to eat and speak properly, as well as improve your facial appearance. Dentures can be full or partial, depending on how many teeth need to be replaced.

How long does it take to get dentures?

The process of getting dentures can take several weeks and multiple appointments. Your dentist will first take impressions and measurements of your mouth to create a model of your dentures. The dental lab will then create a wax or plastic mockup for you to try on, so your dentist can make any necessary adjustments to the fit, shape, and color. Once the final adjustments are made, the lab will create your final dentures. Additional adjustments may be needed after you start wearing your dentures to ensure they fit comfortably and function properly.

Can I sleep with my dentures in?

While it is possible to sleep with your dentures in, it’s generally recommended that you remove them at night. Taking your dentures out before bedtime allows your gums and jawbone to rest and recover from the pressure exerted by the dentures during the day. It also provides an opportunity to properly clean and soak your dentures overnight, which helps maintain their shape, hygiene, and longevity. If you find it difficult to sleep without your dentures, talk to your dentist about your concerns and they may be able to offer alternative solutions or advice for better comfort.

How do I care for my dentures?

Caring for your dentures is important to keep them clean and in good condition. Here are some tips for denture care:

  1. Remove and rinse your dentures after eating.
  2. Clean your dentures daily using a soft-bristled toothbrush or denture brush, and a non-abrasive denture cleaner.
  3. Soak your dentures overnight in water or a denture-soaking solution to keep them moist.
  4. Brush your gums, tongue, and the roof of your mouth before putting your dentures back in to maintain good oral hygiene.
  5. Schedule regular dental check-ups to ensure your dentures continue to fit well and to monitor your overall oral health.

How much do dentures cost?

The cost of dentures can vary depending on the type of denture and where you live. On average, full dentures can cost between $600 and $5,000 per set, while partial dentures can cost between $300 and $4,000. Many dental insurance plans cover at least part of the cost of dentures, so be sure to check with your insurance provider and dentist to find out how much your treatment will cost.
