Completing Smiles with Partial and Full Dentures
Did you know roughly 40 million American adults are missing all their teeth? So, if you have an incomplete smile, you’re certainly not alone. Fortunately, Dr. Javeed offers three great denture options to help you restore your smile’s appearance and functionality: partial, full, and implant-retained dentures. If you’re ready to take the next step toward a full, healthy, beautiful smile, contact our office today!
If you are missing multiple teeth in a single row, but still have a few of your natural ones intact, then partials are the ideal tooth replacement solution for you. By securing your life-like, prosthetic substitute teeth onto a gum-colored base, this tooth loss solution can fill in the gaps in your smile while simultaneously supporting your existing teeth. Plus, the metal framework discreetly clasps onto your teeth for maximum durability and minimal movement.
Full dentures are similar to their partial counterpart since they are also removable, life-like, and durable. However, they are distinct in that they are designed to help patients who are missing an entire arch of teeth. Additionally, they are held in place by a combination of natural suction and a special adhesive. That way, you can chew, laugh, and talk with full confidence.
The third option for patients struggling with tooth loss is implant-retained dentures. This state-of-the-art tooth replacement option restores both your missing teeth and your missing roots, ensuring results that look and feel more natural.
While your dentures are cavity-resistant, they aren’t indestructible. To keep them in tip-top shape, there are a few best practices you should follow, starting with a solid oral hygiene routine. By brushing them daily with a non-abrasive toothpaste and denture-friendly toothbrush, you can keep them clean of harmful oral bacteria and plaque. You should also rinse them with lukewarm water and soak them in a cup of special cleaning solution to prevent them from warping. Lastly, make sure to continue to care for any remaining teeth you have and be consistent with your professional checkups and cleanings with our dentist every six months.
Cost of Dentures
The type of dentures you choose, the number of teeth you are missing, and your dental plan are just a few of the factors that influence the cost of dentures. With this in mind, we highly recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Javeed to find out the exact price. During your appointment, she will conduct a thorough dental exam, develop a personalized treatment plan, and check on the details of your benefits. From there, you’ll have a good understanding of the price of your new and improved smile with dentures.
