Dentures in Blue Bell, PA

What Can Dentures Do for You?

If you are missing teeth due to decay, disease, or damage, it can be challenging to comfortably eat and talk. Fortunately, you can quickly and easily restore your appearance, comfort, and confidence with dentures. These custom-crafted dental appliances are artificial teeth that get attached to either a permanent dental implant or a removable dental framework. Along with improving the way you look and feel, a denture can help restore lost dental function and reinforce your facial structure after tooth loss. They can also last for several years with proper care and cleaning which makes them a worthwhile dental investment for a better smile.

What Types of Dentures Are Available?

There are many kinds to choose from today. Our dentist are knowledgeable about dentures in Blue Bell and can evaluate your smile to help you determine the best kind of denture for you. A few of the options we offer for affordable quality dentures are listed below.

What Is the Difference between Full and Partial Dentures?

A full denture is also called a complete denture because it replaces your complete set of natural teeth in both the top and bottom jaws. The process is rather simple and every effort is made to ensure your complete comfort. After the extraction of any existing teeth, our dentist will provide you with a temporary denture. As soon as your gums have fully healed, the new permanent denture will be comfortably placed. You can choose to get a removable full denture that lays on top of your gums or a more permanent fixed denture that is embedded into your jaw with dental implants.

With partial dentures, you are able to replace one or more missing teeth with a bridge-like structure while retaining your healthy teeth. While a bridge is permanently secured to the surrounding teeth, a partial denture has metal clasps that simply attach to the adjacent teeth and can be removed with ease for nightly cleanings.

What Is a Flexible Partial Denture?

A flexible partial denture differs from a traditional partial denture in many ways. Instead of having metal clasps and a solid base, it features flexible clasps and a supple, gum-colored base. Additionally, it is formed from a flexible, lightweight substance that easily conforms to your mouth for greater comfort than a rigid metal appliance. Since its color matches your natural gums, no one will ever suspect that your teeth are not your own.

How Are Implant-Supported Dentures Different?

Unlike a traditional denture that lays on top of your gums, an implant-supported denture is permanently placed into your jaw with either two or four dental implants. These dentures are frequently placed in the bottom jaw because the stability usually isn’t needed in the upper jaw. It is similar to a traditional denture because it also needs to be removed for cleaning every night .

What Are the Benefits of All-on-Four Dentures?

This dental implant technique streamlines the process of getting a full set of replacement teeth by only using four dental implants placed in the lower jaw as a secure foundation. This offers more natural bite strength and the convenience of a fixed denture.

What Is Involved in Getting Dentures?

There are several steps in the actual process, yet these steps can vary by on the type of dentures selected and the overall health of your smile. The first step is to have your smile measured so your dentist can create an impression to provide you with a proper fit. Next, any decayed or damaged teeth are extracted and a temporary denture is provided until your final appliance is made. However, if you are getting an implant-supported denture, your implants will be embedded instead. As soon as your final denture is ready, our dentist will fit you with the appliance and make the required adjustments to ensure the complete comfort of your new-and-improved teeth.

Do Dentures Cost a Significant Amount of Money?

It’s important to realize that the cost will vary based on the type of denture you choose, the cost of the materials, and the treatments required for preparation. Rest assured that our dentists will provide you with affordable quality dentures that meet your needs and budget. Please call our practice to arrange a consultation and learn more about this worthwhile dental option.

What Is a Soft Denture Reline?

Basically, it is a denture that replaces the typical hard, acrylic lining with a softer, more pliable material. This softer substance may stay supple and flexible for a couple of years. Many patients prefer a soft reline for the comfort and freedom it provides from denture soreness and pain.
