Dentures in Orlando, FL
How Do I Know If I Need Dentures?
If you’re missing all or most of your natural teeth, you may be a candidate for a full denture. If you’re missing some of your teeth, a partial denture may be your best option. Your teeth are an integral part of your jaw and when you’re missing teeth, your jaw loses structural stability. Teeth also provide you with a beautiful smile. Dentures that are properly maintained can last for many years, so they’re a good investment in your health.
How Do I Know What Type Is Best for Me?
Dentures are available in many different types, each with several options. Your dentist will evaluate your oral health and will work with you to decide which options will work best for you.
What’s A Full Set Of Dentures?
A full denture set will replace all of the teeth in your upper jaw, lower jaw, or both jaws. Your dentist will completely examine your oral health, make impressions and take measurements of your teeth and gums, extract teeth if necessary, install implants if applicable, and then provide you with a temporary dental appliance. When your gums have completely healed, your new set of teeth will be installed and adjusted for maximum comfort and function.
You can opt for a removable full denture, which will be seated on your gums and will need to be removed each night for cleaning, or a fixed full denture, which will be affixed to the dental implants that were installed.
What’s A Partial Set of Dentures?
If you’re missing only a few teeth, you might want a partial denture, which allows you to retain your healthy teeth and replace only those that are missing or diseased. A partial has clasps that attach to adjacent teeth and must be removed and cleaned each night.
What’s a Flexible Partial?
A flexible partial and its clasps are made of a lightweight material that flexes when you move your mouth. Both the partial and the clasps are gum colored so they blend in with your regular teeth. Traditional partial dentures are made of a rigid material and have metal clasps, which some find to be a less comfortable option.
Do I Need an Implant-Supported Denture?
A traditional denture sits on the gums. An implant-supported denture is usually only placed in the lower jaw and is affixed to the dental implants that have been installed. Both require daily removal and cleaning.
Would I Prefer All-on-Four Dentures?
This technique replaces your natural teeth with a full set of artificial teeth. They are affixed permanently to dental implants and provide additional biting power and the convenience of fixed dentures.
How Do I Get Dentures?
Getting new dentures in Orlando is a multi-step procedure that will vary somewhat according to a patient’s individual needs and preferences. Usually, your dentist will take measurements and impressions first. This ensures that your new teeth will accurately replicate your natural teeth and bite. If necessary, teeth will be extracted and implants secured, then you’ll be provided with a temporary denture. When your gums have healed, your new teeth will be adjusted to ensure they are comfortable and functional.
How Much Will Dentures Cost Me?
The cost for a new denture will vary according to the individual and is influenced by several factors. The type of denture you select, the amount of work that needs to be performed, and the materials needed to construct your denture, will all factor into the total cost for your new teeth. Your dentist will work with you to ensure that you get affordable quality dentures that meet your needs. Call our office today to get more information on getting new dentures in Orlando.
How Does a Soft Denture Reline Work?
Traditional dentures are made of a rigid acrylic material and some wearers may develop sore spots and experience some pain. A soft reline uses a soft, pliable material to line dentures and it can last for about two years. Many wearers find this a more comfortable alternative.
