Dentures in Bradenton, FL

Why Are Dentures So Popular Today?

Losing your teeth can hurt your appearance, dental function, and your self-esteem. Dentures are in enormous demand today because they can resolve all of these problems and help you live a better life. A denture is a personalized dental appliance that features artificial teeth secured to permanent dental implants or a dental framework. If you take good care of your dentures, they can stay strong and attractive for a decade or more.

Is There a Wide Selection of Dentures?

Yes, there are many kinds of dentures for every tooth replacement need. Once you come into our office for a full dental exam, our experienced dentists can advise you on the ideal way to enhance your smile. The main denture options are listed for you below:

Full Denture vs. Partial Denture

The two main types of dentures are full and partial. A full denture is able to replace your complete set of natural teeth in your upper and lower jaws. You have the option of getting a removable full denture that sits on top of your gums or a permanent, fixed denture that gets inserted into your jaw with a few dental implants. The procedure involves having any existing teeth extracted by your dentist and then wearing a temporary denture to give your gums time to heal. You will return to our office after your gums have healed to receive your permanent denture and have it adjusted for comfort.

A partial denture allows you to replace one or more of the teeth you have lost with a bridge-like structure while still keeping your teeth in good health. This differs from a bridge that gets permanently bonded to nearby teeth by having metal clasps that clip onto the adjacent teeth. The clasps make it easy to take out for nightly cleanings.

Flexible Partial Dentures

A flexible partial denture lacks metal clasps or a rigid base like a traditional denture. Instead, it is crafted from a limber, lightweight substance that conforms to the shape of your mouth to ensure long-term comfort. Its gum-colored composition makes it much more discreet than a traditional denture so no one will detect that you ever lost any teeth.

All-on-Four Dentures

With this innovative implant technique, you only need four dental implants in the lower jaw to attach a complete set of dentures. This method is preferred by people who want the security of a fixed denture and more inherent chewing power.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Rather than loosely sitting on your gums, this kind of denture relies on only two or four dental implants for complete stability. They are typically used to replace your lower set of teeth since your top teeth don’t require the same level of support. But remember that they need to be removed every night for cleaning, just as a traditional denture must.

How Are Dentures Placed?

The procedure is surprisingly simple, yet may have slightly different steps based on the type of denture chosen and the condition of your teeth. First, our dentist will get your oral measurements and take a dental impression to ensure that your denture perfectly matches your bite. Then, you will get any damaged teeth taken out and be sent home with a temporary denture to wear while you heal. The process changes slightly if you get an implant-supported denture because your dentist will instead embed your dental implants at this stage.

When your gums have fully healed, you will come back to have a final fitting for your permanent denture and receive any adjustments you may need.

What Is the Cost of Dentures In Bradenton?

To figure out what dentures cost, you need to see a dentist and choose the type you want and see if you need additional treatments to prepare you for denture placement. But no matter what your budget or dental condition, our dentists can offer you affordable quality dentures that are ideal for you. Our dentists can help you obtain affordable quality dentures that meet your unique dental needs. To find out how dentures can help restore your smile, simply call our office and set up an appointment today.

Should You Choose a Soft Denture Reline?

You may prefer this option if you want a denture made of a soft, pliable material that stays supple for many years instead the traditional hard, acrylic denture. These more flexible dentures can save you from occasional soreness and dental pain.
