What Are Dentures?
Dentures are a set of false teeth that is used to replace missing teeth. They can be either partial dentures to replace a few missing teeth, or full dentures to replace an entire row of missing teeth. Dentures can help patients restore wholeness to their smile, improving their ability to chew, swallow, speak, and smile. Many patients also find that dentures restore volume to their lower face, creating a more youthful appearance.
How Much Do Dentures Cost?
The average cost of dentures is (COST), but this cost can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to fulfill a patient’s cosmetic goals. In some cases, your dental insurance provider may cover a portion of the cost of your dentures treatment. Additionally, Connell Family Dentistry accepts financing through Lending Club and CareCredit® to help make this and other treatments more affordable.
Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures?
Dentures can be a good treatment option for patients who have lost multiple teeth or even all of their teeth. During your consultation, Dr. Connell will help you determine if dentures are the best treatment approach for you. For any patient receiving dentures, we ensure that the shape and color of the dentures look and feel natural in the mouth.
How Are Dentures Secured in the Mouth?
If a patient is receiving partial dentures, the dentures will be secured using metal framework that attaches to neighboring teeth. Patients with full dentures often complain that their dentures slip out or come loose, making it difficult to talk and eat normally. For these patients, mini implants can be a great option. Mini implants are inserted into the gum line, and provide a secure spot for dentures to snap into. This is a great option for preventing dentures from popping out.
