Today’s dentures are more technologically advanced than ever before and are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. There are many options for patients including implant dentures, which restore teeth to their natural look and function.
Types of Dentures
Full Dentures – Full dentures are used to replace all of the upper or lower teeth. Dentures can either be fixed or removable. Fixed dentures, also called implant dentures, are anchored by dental implants. As few as four dental implants may be needed to secure the denture in place, greatly increasing the success rate and satisfaction of the denture.
Benefits of Implant Dentures – Implant dentures offer a number of benefits compared to removable dentures including:
- Better retention, no chance of slippage
- Improved health of bone and gums
- Ability to eat without restrictions
- No adhesives needed
- More natural look and feel
Partial Dentures – Where full dentures replace the entire lower or upper set of teeth, partial dentures are used to replace several missing teeth. Like full dentures, they can either be fixed or removable. Partial dentures are similar to a dental bridge. If the partial denture is fixed, it is either secured in place using dental crowns or dental implants.
How much do dentures cost?
The cost of dentures depends on your specific condition, the type of dentures you choose and the materials we use. The dentist will review the denture cost along with any other details prior to treatment. If you have dental insurance, we will submit claims on your behalf. For treatment not covered by insurance, we offer several flexible payment options.
Can you make my existing denture fit better?
Dr. Mahnke will evaluate the condition of your existing denture and if the teeth are is good shape he may recommend relining your existing denture. Relining is when the tissue side of the denture has acrylic added or replaced to get a more snug fit of the denture. Many times this can be done the same day.
