Dentures in Detroit, MI

Do I Need Dentures?

Your teeth serve several vital functions other than providing a pretty smile. They’re responsible for chewing—the first stage of food digestion, for maintaining the proper bone structure of your face, and more. The loss of all or several of your teeth can adversely affect your overall well-being, so it’s important to replace teeth that are missing.

Dentures are the solution for missing teeth, whether you need a partial or a full-mouth set. Technological advances in dentistry enable you to have dentures that look and feel like your natural teeth, and no one need know that you’re wearing artificial teeth.

What Are Options for Dentures?

Dentures are available as a full-mouth set or as a partial set; the type that’s best for you will depend on your personal preference, as well as the number of teeth that you’re missing. Many people opt to have all their natural teeth removed and rely solely on full-mouth dentures. Your dentist will evaluate your situation and lifestyle and make a recommendation, but ultimately, the choice is yours.

What Is a Full Set of Dentures?

If you opt for a full set, your existing teeth will be removed and your dentist will take measurements and impressions of your jaw. You’ll be given a temporary dental appliance, which you’ll use until your gums have healed. At that time, you’ll receive your permanent denture, which can be in one of two forms. You can receive either a removable denture or a fixed denture. The removable denture rests on your gums; the fixed denture is anchored by permanent dental implants.

An implant-supported denture is usually installed on the lower jaw only since the upper denture doesn’t need the stability that implants provide. As with traditional dentures, however, you’ll need to remove the implant-supported denture each night so that you can clean it.

What Are Partial Sets and Flexible Partials?

If you need a partial denture, your healthy teeth will remain and you’ll receive a removable partial denture that is affixed to the teeth on either side. It’s essential to remove the partial each night so that you can clean it. It differs from a bridge because the partial is removable, whereas a bridge is permanently installed.

A flexible partial denture and clasps are made from a flexible substance that is gum-colored so clasps are less visible. Traditional partials are made from a rigid substance that may be less comfortable for some people.

What Are All-on-Four Dentures?

This technique provides a permanently attached set of artificial teeth that are anchored to four implants in the lower jaw. This type of denture provides additional biting power with the convenience of a fixed denture.

What Is the Procedure?

Getting new dentures is a multi-step process that varies depending on your needs and preferences, and the condition of your existing teeth. Unhealthy teeth will need to be removed and you’ll need an interim appliance. Implants, if required, will be placed and your permanent dentures will be installed when your mouth has healed.

You and your dentist will work together to ensure maximum comfort and function of your new teeth.

What Do Dentures Cost?

The cost of dentures varies depending on several factors, including the condition of your existing teeth, the type of dentures you want, and the materials to be used. Your dentist will work with you to obtain the best affordable quality dentures that will suit your needs. Contact our office today so that we can help you get your new dentures in Detroit. We can provide you with additional information and schedule a consultation for you.

What Is a Soft Denture Reline?

Usually, dentures are lined with hard acrylic. A soft reline uses a pliable material that has a lifespan of about two years, and can eliminate the pain and soreness that is sometimes the result of wearing a traditional denture.

If you’re looking to get new dentures in Detroit, schedule an appointment today. We can provide you with some of the most comfortable and affordable quality dentures available. You’ll want to show off your smile again, so contact us for more information.
