Affordable solutions to different types-of-dentures

As we grow older, we can become susceptible to losing a tooth or two which will end up with us having to look for tooth loss replacements. One of the more common and traditional forms of tooth loss replacement are dentures.

What are dentures?

Denture implants are an artificial replacement to several missing. The denture fits in the mouth with false teeth built in, to provide an efficient alternative to the missing teeth. With this in mind, some people only need a denture for a small part of their mouth as a partial teeth replacement and others need something more drastic. There are two main types of dentures: partial and permanent.

Partial Dentures: A partial removable denture is used for an individual who is missing one or more teeth but still has many of their natural teeth remaining. Instead of having to cover their natural pearly whites, the denture works around their remaining teeth and replicates their color through the artificial teeth on the denture.

Full Mouth Complete Dentures: Otherwise known as an all on-4 dental implants, this is a more complicated and drastic denture, as the complete denture acts as a replacement to several missing teeth on a full arch. In some cases unhealthy or obscure teeth may need to be removed in order to use a complete denture. This is a lengthy procedure that may take months in order for the gums to heal.

All On-4 Dental Implant Procedure

As all on-4 dental implant dentures are an implant supported denture, you will need to undergo four vigorous dental implant surgeries along your dental arch. Because of the drastic and long term nature of this procedure, it will take a number of informed decisions from your dentist before recommending this surgery.

The surgery that will involve the application of the implant screws will require the screws to be drilled into the jaw bone which will then protrude through the gum line. With a metal framework showing through the gum line, this will provide a solid base that will allow the fixed denture to rest over the gums whilst being securely screwed in.

In some cases, the jaw bone will not be strong enough to withstand the implant. In this instance, a partial or full mouth bone graft will be required which will further the costs and time it will take for you to achieve your dream smile.

Your Denture Maintenance

Dentures can be quite fragile and may require a fair bit of maintenance in order to keep them in excellent condition. Due to the nature of the denture sitting over the gum, the gums can become infected or inflamed if the dentures aren’t kept in a good and hygienic condition. Quite often dental sealants may be used to prevent tooth decay when using a denture, to maintain hygienic teeth and gums.

Although removable partials and fixed dentures can be a good solution for some, the material used to replicate the gums can be fairly brittle and susceptible to breaks and damage. When the denture breaks, you can get denture repair kits or find a denture professional to fix these issues. Although these damages can be fixed, they will be severely vulnerable to breakage again.

Denture Costs

When looking into having a denture, the price range can be extreme. Depending on what kind of denture you’re looking for and where you go to have this denture done, can set you back on a hefty cost of up to $7,000!

Some oral health professionals will provide finance options which will allow you to spread the cost of a few months. However, if you don’t have the income available to deal with this hefty price tag, you will be struggling to find an alternative. On top of this, some dental insurance companies can help you cover the cost of your dentures.
