Dentures in East Detroit, MI

What Are Dentures and Why Would I Need Them?

If you’re missing several or most of your teeth, you may be a prime candidate for a set of dentures. Teeth perform several vital functions, which include starting the food digestion process and maintaining the structural integrity of your jaw. By maintaining healthy teeth, you’ll be contributing to your overall good health.

Dentures replace missing teeth so that your jawline remains firm, your digestion is improved, and your smile and self-confidence are at their best.

What Options Do I Have?

Dentures are available in several styles, depending on your unique needs. Your dentist will carefully evaluate your needs and help you decide on the best option for you.

What Is a Full Set?

A full denture set will replace all your natural teeth and can be used for both upper and lower jaws. If you select this option, all your remaining teeth will be extracted and you’ll receive a temporary appliance to use until your gums have healed and your permanent denture is ready for installation. There are two options for the full denture, either a removable appliance or a fixed denture. The removable denture will rest on your gums and be fitted for comfort and performance. The fixed denture will be anchored in place by permanently installed dental implants.

What are Partial and Flexible Partial Dentures?

If you have healthy teeth next to where some are missing or that need to be extracted, you can use a partial denture. A partial is similar to a bridge, but unlike a bridge, a partial isn’t permanently attached, it uses clasps that slip onto adjacent teeth. It also needs to be removed for cleaning each night.

Flexible partials lack the rigid base and metal clasps of a traditional partial. The base is gum-colored and is flexible, which some people find more comfortable.

What Are Implant-Supported Dentures?

If you opt for an implant-supported denture, it will be affixed to permanently installed dental implants. This is usually done only for the lower jaw since the upper jaw doesn’t need the stability that the lower jaw requires. An implant-supported denture requires daily removal and cleaning.

What Are All-on-Four Dentures?

This type of denture replaces all of your natural teeth and is permanently attached to four implants that are installed in your lower jaw. An All-on-Four denture provides more biting power, with the convenience of fixed dentures.

How Do I Get Dentures?

There are several steps involved in this process, and the complexity will depend primarily on your unique situation, including the type of dentures desired, such as full or partial, and whether you need extractions. Your dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your oral condition and make recommendations. Based on your preferences, he or she will take impressions and make measurements so your new dentures will fit properly and comfortably.

When extractions and prep work are completed, you’ll be given an interim set of dental appliances. When your permanent set is created, it will be installed to ensure maximum comfort and functionality.

What Will New Dentures Cost?

The cost will vary depending on the type selected and the prep work that will be needed. Your dentist will help you decide which affordable quality dentures will best fit your unique needs. Call our office today about getting new dentures in East Detroit. We can schedule a consultation or answer any questions you might have.

Denture Soft Reline

Usually, a hard acrylic lining is used to line dentures. A soft denture reline replaces the hard acrylic lining with a soft, pliable material that lasts about two years. Some denture wearers find this soft material more comfortable than the rigid lining.
