What are Dentures?
Removable Replacement for Missing Teeth
Dentures are prosthetic teeth custom-produced to replace some or all of your teeth, as needed. Full dentures that replace all of your original teeth are designed for a precision-fit over your gums, creating a natural looking, pleasing smile. Your dentist at Dentistry at Dove Valley in Cave Creek, AZ, may use partial dentures that are either fixed or removable designs if you only need replacements for a few missing teeth. Fixed partials can attach to crowns or dental implants on either side of the space between your teeth. Removable partials are secured by clasps or wires attached to your own teeth.
Benefits of Dentures
Dentures for replacing missing teeth will restore your normal appearance and natural smile. They will prevent your facial muscles from sagging and help you look more youthful. Dentures will also enable you to eat a wider variety of foods and to speak more easily and clearly.
Cost of Quality Dentures
Without dental insurance coverage, complete dentures can cost from $1,300 to $3,200 or about $350 per tooth as partials. However, if you have dental insurance, it will most likely cover part or even all of the cost.
Process of Being Fitted with Dentures
Dr. Ata-Abadi and the specialized team of Dentistry at Dove Valley in Cave Creek, AZ, usually fit dentures during three visits. At the first appointment, your dental specialist will discuss the style and usefulness of dentures for improving your dental health and smile. Molds will be made of your mouth, and dentures will be custom-produced in a dental lab. During the second visit, the fit of your dentures will be checked. You will receive instructions about how long to wear them daily and how to clean and maintain them. At your third visit a few weeks later, Dr. Ata-Abadi will make any needed adjustments to ensure good gum health and the comfort of your new dentures.
Helpful Tips on Using Dentures
Most people find that dentures feel somewhat strange in their mouths at first. However, by keeping them clean and wearing them only for the length of time each day that your dental specialist recommended, you will soon grow accustomed to your dentures. Some patients discover that singing and reading aloud can help improve your speech while wearing your dentures.
How Long Dentures Last
With good care, your dentures fitted by the experts of Dentistry at Dove Valley in Cave Creek, AZ, can last for several years. Most dentists recommend replacing your dentures every five to eight years since they can become worn with regular use. Also, your gums may shrink or change in shape during this time.
