Are you missing teeth? If you’re like millions of Americans with incomplete smiles, you may be familiar with the health, function, and aesthetic disadvantages that missing teeth can cause. At Vaca & Kirby Dental, we have custom-made solutions that can solve this problem. Using partial, full, or implant-retained dentures, we can restore your smile back to its full beauty. Keep reading to learn more about dentures and how you can benefit from them.
What are Dentures?
Dentures have been used for centuries to give patients the gift of a full smile. Thankfully, modern dentistry has allowed us the opportunity to provide dentures that are more comfortable and functional than ever. The lightweight resins that they are made of today have came a long way since animal bone and wood dentures in the past. We offer three different types of dentures to give you the option that works best for your needs.
Partial dentures allow us to replace your missing teeth while leaving your remaining natural teeth intact. Sort of like filling in the missing pieces to a puzzle, we custom-make dentures to fill the gaps in your smile. These partials are typically held in place using clasps that attach to your existing teeth.
Full dentures are the quickest way to restore your full smile. These are composed of a gum-colored, composite resin base that is attached to your false teeth. These dentures rest on top of your gums and they’re held in place using suction or adhesive. Full dentures are completely removeable, but they require daily cleaning and maintenance.
With implant retained dentures, you get the advantages of both dentures and dental implants. We will place dental implants in your jaw at strategic positions to serve as supports for your dentures. Then, we’ll mount your custom-made denture to your implants to give you a full smile with unmatched function and comfort.
Benefits of Dentures
We see our patients enjoy many benefits that dentures bring, but here are some of the most popular advantages:
- Confidence: If you’ve been hiding your smile due to missing teeth, now you can enjoy boosted confidence with the ability to flash your grin at any moment.
- Appearance: Enjoy a beautifully full smile that is ready for any occasion.
- Function: Your new dentures will allow you to eat foods that you haven’t been able to chew with missing teeth.
- Health: If you elect for implant-retained dentures, you can receive the health benefits of dental implants—they stimulate your jawbone to keep it strong.
Understanding the Cost of Your Dentures
The cost of your dentures can vary based on a few factors, which is why it’s hard to give a fair estimate without examining your mouth. The type of denture that you need will influence the cost as well as any preexisting oral health issues you have that may need to be treated. The best way to receive a precise estimate is to contact our office for an appointment. One of our highly-trained dentists will examine your mouth to develop a personalized treatment plan and a cost estimate.
