Dentures in Shelton, CT

There are many factors that can cause missing teeth, including tooth decay, trauma, or the aging process. If missing teeth are having a negative effect on your quality of life, dentures in Shelton are an excellent solution. Read on to learn how you can restore your smile’s radiance with our affordable quality dentures.

What Happens When You Get Dentures?

Several steps are involved when receiving new dentures. At a denture consultation, your dentist will analyze your teeth to determine what variety of denture is best for you. Impressions and measurements may be taken, which are used to craft a perfectly-fitting dental appliance. If there are diseased teeth, they will need to be removed before you receive a full denture. Implants will need to be placed in the jaw in a separate procedure if you’re getting an implant-supported device. You’ll receive a temporary appliance to wear as your mouth recovers. Once your mouth has fully recuperated from any preparatory dental work, the dentist will place and adjust your permanent denture.

What Choices Are Available for Dentures?

Every person faces unique dental challenges; therefore, several varieties of dentures in Shelton are offered. Please contact our office to find out what type of denture is best for you.

Complete and Partial Dentures

A complete denture acts as a replacement for a full row of teeth in the upper or lower jaw. To receive this type of denture, each tooth in the affected area must be extracted. Complete dental appliances can be fixed into place using implants, and they also can rest along the gums in the traditional method. They’re created using several durable materials, including metal, porcelain, and acrylic.

Patients who are missing one or more teeth may benefit from a partial denture. Partials can be used as a one tooth denture or as a replacement for several teeth. They’re attached using a clasp system, with the clasps affixing to adjacent, healthy teeth. The denture is removed easily when it’s time for cleaning.

Flexible Partials

Flexible partials offer a comfortable and discreet alternative to traditional partial dentures. These appliances are crafted using pliable, lightweight materials that mimic the look of natural teeth and gums. No one will realize you’re wearing a partial denture unless you tell them.

Implant-Supported Denture

With an implant-supported denture, you’ll receive a secure fit without the use of sticky bonding agents. Instead of sitting on the gums, an implant-supported denture is held into place using titanium implants. This variety of denture is great for the lower jaw, which usually benefits from enhanced stability. However, they can also be used as upper or lower dentures. The device can be removable or permanently fixed.

What Do Dentures Typically Cost?

What kind of denture you choose, the materials required to make the denture, and any preliminary procedures will determine the cost of new dentures. Our dentists will devise a treatment plan that restores your smile and suits your budget. Give us a call to find out more about our customized affordable quality dentures.

Why Do Patients Use Dentures?

A denture is a fully functioning replacement for a missing or damaged tooth or row of teeth. Dentures are created using a row of artificial teeth that are attached to a metal frame or set of implants. Wearing a denture can restore your ability to chew, speak, and smile with confidence. Our practice offers a wide variety of denture choices to meet your unique needs.

What Does a Soft Denture Reline Do?

If your dentures are creating sore spots or causing discomfort, call our office to ask about a soft reline. This affordable procedure can greatly increase the comfort of your appliance by adding a soft, pliable material to the base of the device. The material remains pliable for up to two years.

What Happens During the All-on-Four Dentures Procedure?

With the All-on-Four implant method, the dentist affixes a completed set of pontic teeth and tissues to four dental implants. All-on-Four dentures offer the ease of a fixed appliance and excellent natural biting power.
