Benefits of Dentures
- Dentures can restore your smile quickly, even if you’ve lost most of your teeth. The process of building your dentures usually takes just a few appointments and once your dentures are built, you’ll be able to smile, bite, and chew normally again.
- This restorative option is very affordable compared to other methods of replacing missing teeth. In most cases, dentures are covered by dental insurance.
- In the case of partial dentures, this treatment can prevent common issues caused by tooth loss such as teeth shifting.
Are Dentures Right for Me?
Good Candidates for Dentures
If you are missing only a few of your teeth, you may be a good candidate for partial dentures. This type of denture uses a plastic and metal framework to support one or more false teeth. The framework clips onto your remaining healthy teeth, filling the gaps where your missing teeth used to be. Partial dentures can be used as a temporary treatment until you can have dental implants or bridges placed, or as a long-term solution for missing teeth.
If you are missing most or all of your teeth, full dentures may be right for you. Since this type of denture is designed to fit over your gums, any remaining teeth must be extracted before your dentures can be fitted.
Are Dentures Comfortable?
What to Expect While Wearing Dentures
Modern dentures are very comfortable, and at Mestichelli Barnes Dental Associates we use the latest techniques to build partial and full dentures that fit into your mouth perfectly. However, there may be a bit of an adjustment period when you start wearing your partial or full dentures. A little bit of discomfort is not uncommon, but we will work with you during follow-up appointments to ensure that the fit and function of your dentures is just right.
