Types of Dentures
Dentures are a popular option for any who needs to replace missing teeth. There are two main types of dentures – full dentures and partial dentures (partials). Full dentures are used to replace all of the teeth on one arch with a single prosthesis, while partial dentures are used to replace some of the teeth but not all of them.
There are even designs of dentures that can snap onto dental implants or be used to fill out your facial profile, helping your smile look more youthful after tooth loss.
Full vs. Partial Dentures
Sometimes it’s a good idea to get a full denture instead of a partial. For example, if you have lost the majority of your teeth or have an issue with your jawbone, a full denture might be necessary to reconstruct that full arch of teeth. Partial dentures are better for those who still have several natural teeth but need to fill in the spaces between them. Deciding between a full vs. partial denture comes down to the unique needs of your smile and how many teeth are missing (or need to be extracted.)
How much do dentures cost? The investment will depend on the type of denture you choose, but getting dentures is usually one of the most affordable ways to quickly replace all of your teeth at one time.
If you have lost all your teeth and need to replace them, a full denture provides total tooth restoration in that arch (upper or lower jaw.) How much do dentures cost? It depends on the type of denture materials you choose, the type of denture design you want, and factors such as your insurance benefits.
Full dentures rest directly against your gum tissue and cover the entire width of your smile. If you have any remaining teeth, they will have to be removed before you can wear your denture. That’s why our Windsor, CT dentists only recommend a complete denture if you require total tooth replacement. If your teeth are healthy or restorable, a partial denture may be better.
Affordable dentures can even be used as a temporary solution if you’re waiting to get dental implants.
Adjusting to a full denture does take some time, but with practice and a little patience, you’ll be free to enjoy your favorite foods and smile around friends.
Removable partial dentures are a great option for people who still have healthy teeth. They attach with the help of metal clasps and are removable, which means you can take them out easily to clean them or while you’re brushing your teeth. They also come in many different designs, so you can get the look that works best for you. Such as flexible partial dentures that use pink acrylic instead of metal bases.
Getting removable upper partial dentures also makes it easier to eat and speak, as there’s no “plate” across the roof of your mouth.
Upper Removable Partial Dentures
Removable upper partial dentures offer the benefits of a fixed bridge when you have missing teeth. But they don’t require covering your supporting teeth with crowns or the added costs involved. Plus, partial dentures are much easier to clean each day than a fixed bridge.
A removable partial denture can have a metal or acrylic base, giving you options both when it comes to cost and aesthetic preferences.
When Do Patients Require Dentures?
Most people need dentures because they have lost teeth due to an accident, disease, or tooth decay. Some people even have congenitally missing teeth that they need to replace because they never grew in. Getting a denture helps restore oral function for eating, speaking, and cosmetic purposes. Other people might even get dentures as a temporary solution while they wait for an upcoming dental implant procedure.
What Happens During the Procedure?
The process of getting dentures made is a three-step process. The first step is the consultation, where you will discuss the type of dentures and the number of teeth to replace, as well as any fees associated with that procedure. The second step involves taking impressions of your mouth for our dental lab to use while we’re making your dentures. In the third step, our Windsor, CT dentist will deliver your dentures, check their fit, and make any adjustments if needed.
If you need to have teeth extracted before getting dentures, we may be able to plan to remove them on the same day that your denture is delivered.
How Much Do Dentures Cost?
The cost of dentures varies depending on the design, materials, and other treatment needs (such as bone grafting or tooth extraction.) A typical set of dentures costs as little as a few hundred dollars, while a more expensive set could cost nearly triple that. We will be sure to work closely with your insurance carrier to maximize any denture benefits included in your plan’s coverage.
