How Dentures Work
Dentures have been used for decades to help patients whose smile, bite, and speech have been negatively impacted by tooth loss. But how exactly do they work? In short, they are personalized prosthetics designed to fill in the gaps of your unique smile. So, whether you are missing a single tooth, all your teeth, or anything in between, Dr. Landry can restore the function of your teeth without compromising the appearance of your grin!
Types of Dentures
If you are missing an entire arch of teeth, then you may be a candidate for full dentures! This removable appliance includes a full set of custom-built teeth anchored to a gum-colored acrylic base for a life-like smile that looks and feels natural. A combination of natural suction and dentist-recommended adhesive will secure them in place for minimal movement throughout your daily activities. Plus, they can last five to 10 years (or more!) with proper care and frequent adjustment appointments.
If you still have some of your natural teeth, partial dentures can be used to seamlessly fill in the gaps in your smile. Not only will the replacement teeth be crafted to match the enamel of your natural ones, but the acrylic or metal framework will discreetly clasp around your existing teeth, resulting in a flawless finish. Additionally, taking care of your natural teeth will be as easy as ever since the appliance can be removed to complete your oral care regimen!
Understanding the Cost of Dentures
To determine the cost, it is important to first know your unique dental needs. For example, how many teeth need to be replaced? Do you need any extractions beforehand? Does your dental plan cover a portion of the total price? The answer to each of these questions will influence the answer. Fortunately, Dr. Landry and our team can help you determine the cost at your initial consultation once we have conducted an exam, discussed your treatment options, and determined your dental insurance coverage. So, don’t hesitate to reach out today to schedule your visit!
