Full and Partial Dentures in Orlando, FL
Why Should You Consider Getting Dentures?
If you’ve lost several or all of your teeth, you’ve probably had to change your eating habits. You also may have experienced a drop in your confidence and noticed that your jaw and cheeks are sagging. These are all common effects of tooth loss as are a number of long-term health risks. The good news is that you can restore your oral and nutritional health and regain your confident appearance with dentures.
What Are Dentures?
Essentially, affordable quality dentures are sets of false teeth that replace all or most of your missing teeth. They allow you to eat more normally, providing the biting pressure your jaw needs to stay healthy and strong. Dentures are removable for easy cleaning and nighttime storage, and they’re crafted to create a natural, beautiful smile.
What Kinds of Dentures Are Available?
Dentures are available in many styles, made of many different materials. You’ll likely opt for a full denture if you’ve lost most or all teeth on your upper or lower jaw. Partials, on the other hand, are designed to replace a few missing teeth on either jaw.
You’ll have many options when it comes to partials. One popular partial choice is a conventional, rigid metal-based partial that uses metal wire hooks to clasp around your adjacent healthy teeth. Thanks to advancements in denture technology, you also now have an option that is more pliable and natural-looking. These flexible partials are more supple, conforming to your mouth as it moves. Flexible partials also have more malleable, flesh-colored gums, so they’re better able to mask receding gum lines. Clasps on these plastic partials are gum-colored so they blend easily with your gum line.
You’ll also find some variety in a full denture set, from same-day dentures to implant-supported options. All are generally natural-looking and are removable so you can clean and store them at night. The traditional full set uses adhesive to stay in place. Implant-supported devices attach to dental posts that are surgically placed into your gums.
What Are All-on-Four Dentures?
This style of denture is one of the most commonly chosen implant-supported dentures. Many denture wearers report that this style feels more stable and secure than a conventional full denture. This is an excellent option if you’re also considering replacing each missing tooth with an individual implant as these dentures cost much less than multiple individual implants. We’re happy to talk with you about whether this option suits you, so schedule an appointment with us today.
What Are the Costs of Dentures?
Denture prices vary widely according to the type of denture you’ve chosen and the material it uses. Affordable quality dentures are easily accessible, though, so you should find several cost-effective dentures in Orlando.
What Is a Soft Reline for Dentures?
A soft denture reline helps you preserve your existing denture fit. If your denture is feeling less comfortable than usual or rubbing or chafing in spots, this may be a good option for you. Your dentist will remove your denture and inject it with a liquid polymer. This adds a little extra cushion and thickness to your denture to provide a better, more secure fit.
Dentures are a terrific way to restore your oral health and regain your confident, happy smile. We’re always happy to talk with you about your dental and health needs, so call us today for a consultation.
