Dentures in Temple Terrace, FL

What Are Dentures?

If you’ve ever struggled with embarrassment from missing teeth or have had to change your nutrition because of your failing teeth, dentures may be a good option for you. Dentures are removable replacement teeth that help to restore your confidence and good health. The long-term effects of missing teeth are harsh, dramatically changing your appearance and leading to more health issues. Affordable quality dentures can stop those ill effects and restore your health and smile. Our dentists are always available to discuss dentures in Temple Terrace. Give our office a call, and we’ll get you started on the path to better oral health.

What Are the Different Types of Dentures?

Dentures are never a one-size-fits-all appliance. They are customized to fit you and only you. Broadly speaking, there are two kinds of dentures: full sets and partials. Full sets replace all the teeth on your upper or lower jaw while partials replace only your currently missing teeth.

For a full denture, your choices include a traditional style which rests directly on your gum or an implant-supported style that attaches to dental posts inserted into your gums.

Partials have just as many options. While partials can be implant-supported, most attach to your existing teeth with clasps that hook around adjacent teeth. The framework of a partial includes a “plate” that covers the roof of the mouth for your upper jaw or curves around in a horseshoe shape for your lower jaw. There are several plate material options, including metal and flexible plastic. There are benefits to each choice, so be sure to talk with your dentist to choose the one that best suits your needs.

What Are All-on-Four Dentures?

The All-on-Four denture is one of the most popular implant-supported options. With this style, you’ll have four dental posts surgically implanted into your gum. The denture then attaches to those posts. This style offers stronger biting power and greater stability, particularly for a lower denture that tends to slip.

What Is Involved in Getting Dentures?

The denture process varies somewhat depending on the type of denture you’re getting. In general, though, you’ll need some pre-treatment so that your gums and teeth are sturdy enough to support a denture. Next, measurements are taken and an impression of your mouth is made. These measurements are used to create wax samples of your denture. You’ll “try in” the samples, selecting the one that fits you best. This selection then guides the making of your final permanent denture. Once your denture is delivered, it may need a few refining adjustments, and our dentist can take care of those in the office while you wait.

What Are the Expected Costs of Dentures?

Denture costs vary broadly, but affordable quality dentures are abundant. In fact, dentures cost far less than many other alternatives, including individual implants for each missing tooth. Our dentist will work with you to find the most economical, functional solution for you.

What Is a Soft Reline for Dentures?

As you wear your denture, you may notice that its fit changes. That’s completely normal, and you don’t have to get a brand new denture each time your denture starts to slip or chafe. A soft denture reline is often your best answer, cushioning your denture and improving its fit and movement.

Don’t let missing teeth impair your health or degrade your confidence. Dentures are a terrific, affordable solution that improves your health and self-confidence. Call today to get started on your new smile.
