Dentures in Detroit, MI

How Do Dentures Help Me?

Your teeth help maintain the structural integrity of your face, they aid in digestion, and they help you to speak clearly. When many or all of your teeth are missing, all of these things are adversely affected. You may also suffer from a lack of self-confidence since your smile isn’t at its best. A denture replaces your missing teeth and restores your smile, your jawline, and your self-confidence. Properly maintained dentures will last a long time, so consider them a sound financial investment in your health.

What Types of Dentures Are Available for Purchase?

Technological advances in dentistry mean that you now have a wide assortment of dental options available to you. Your dentist will help you choose the best affordable quality dentures for you based on your lifestyle, needs, and personal preferences.

Is A Full Set of Dentures Necessary?

A full denture will replace all of your teeth with a set of fake teeth that have been mounted onto an artificial gum, which rests on top of your natural gums. The procedure involves making impressions and taking measurements, extracting teeth, installing implants if applicable, and then supplying you with a temporary denture. When your gums have fully healed, your new denture will be installed and adjusted for fit and function. A removable full denture will need to be removed and cleaned each night. A fixed full denture will be anchored to the implants, and does not need to be removed.

Do I Need a Partial Denture?

If you have most of your teeth, a partial denture can replace the functions lost by the missing teeth. A partial denture is similar to a bridge but is removable whereas a bridge is permanently installed. A partial is held in place with clasps that are affixed to adjacent teeth. It must be removed and cleaned nightly.

What Are Flexible Partials?

A flexible partial denture and its clasps are made from pliable material that bends when your mouth moves. The denture and clasps are flesh colored so they blend in with your natural teeth. This dental appliance needs to be removed and cleaned daily.

Are Implant-Supported Dentures an Option?

An implant-supported denture is affixed to implants in your mouth and is usually installed only in the lower jaw, which requires more stability than the upper jaw. This denture needs to be removed and cleaned every day.

What Are All-on-Four Dentures?

A set of All-on-Fours replaces all the natural teeth in your lower jaw. The All-on-Four is permanently attached to implants and is very convenient, it also provides more biting power than a traditional denture.

How Do I Get Dentures?

Getting new dentures in Detroit involves several steps and will vary depending on the procedure and options chosen. Your dentist will work with you to select the quality affordable dentures that best fit your needs and your lifestyle. He or she will take impressions and measurements of your teeth and gums so that your new denture fits properly. Teeth are extracted as necessary, implants are installed as necessary, and you’ll receive a temporary dental appliance to wear while your permanent appliance is made. When your teeth are fully healed, your permanent denture will be installed and adjusted for the best fit and performance.

How Much Will Dentures Cost to Install?

The cost of your new denture will be determined by the procedure and options you have chosen, the amount of prep work that needs to be done, and the material needed to make your dentures. Your dentist will work with you so that you receive the affordable quality dentures that work best for you. Call us today if you would like more information on getting new dentures in Detroit.

What Is a Soft Reline for Dentures?

A soft denture reline uses a pliable material to reline dentures that have the standard, hard acrylic lining in them. Many users find that a soft reline eliminates the painful sore spots that they sometimes experience.
