If you or any member of your family is dealing with missing, decayed or damaged teeth, or large gaps in your smile, finding the affordable quality dentures you need can help you to look your best and feel more confident. At Tioga Dental & Orthodontics, we offer proven solutions for dentures in Gainesville that will enhance your appearance and help you to bite and chew without worrying about further damage to your teeth.
Why Are Dentures Used for Replacing Teeth?
Dentures are prosthetic devices that are used to replace natural teeth to fill gaps in your teeth or to take the place of an entire row of teeth on the upper or lower part of your mouth. At Tioga Dental & Orthodontics, we work with you to determine the most practical options for your needs and your budget. Our team is committed to helping you find the right solutions for your dental needs.
What Types of Dentures Are Available from Tioga Dental & Orthodontics?
The dental team at Tioga Dental & Orthodontics can provide a wide range of denture solutions designed to suit your needs. Some of our most popular denture options include the following:
A partial denture is designed to replace a few teeth rather than a whole row. These denture options can be permanently attached to a dental implant or designed to be removable. Removable partial dentures are usually attached to adjacent teeth using clasps that unhook to allow cleaning. Our team will work with you to decide on the right solution for your needs.
Flexible Partial Denture
For greater comfort, your partial denture can be designed to be flexible and to move with your mouth. Rather than using clasps to attach to surrounding teeth, these denture solutions use flexible pressure to stay in place. This makes them an excellent choice for those who want optimal comfort and the most natural look possible for their dental prosthetics.
Full or Complete Denture
If an entire upper or lower row of your teeth is damaged or missing, a full denture is the most practical choice for replacing these teeth and restoring your appearance. Also known as a complete denture, a full denture will provide you with a more natural appearance and will support the sides of your mouth to prevent the sunken or hollow look that can sometimes occur when a large number of teeth are missing. The right full denture will improve your appearance and provide you with added confidence in professional and social situations.
An implant-supported denture uses dental implants as anchorage points to attach these dental appliances to the bone in your jaw. At Tioga Dental & Orthodontics, we can place dental implants directly into your jaw and allow them to heal there. These posts will then serve as the attachment point for permanent dentures that can provide you with the ultimate in confidence about your teeth, your appearance and your ability to bite, chew and speak in public.
Why Would I Choose All-on-4® Dentures?
The All-on-4® treatment process is an innovative new method that allows full dentures to be applied to just four dental implants for each plate. This will significantly reduce the price you pay for your implant-supported dentures and will ensure the best and most natural-looking results for your new false teeth. Our dental team has the proven expertise you need to ensure that your All-on-4 denture application is as seamless as possible.
What Is the Complete Denture Process?
Depending on the amount of work needed to prepare your teeth for your denture application, you may need a few weeks or months before the process is complete. Extraction of damaged or broken teeth will be required and, in some cases, implants must be placed and allowed to heal before your denture can be fitted to your mouth. Once these processes have been completed, your dentist will measure and take impressions of your mouth and gums to make sure your new denture fits perfectly.
Is the Dentures Cost High?
The cost of affordable quality dentures from our office will depend on the amount of preparation needed to get your mouth and gums ready and on the materials and procedures used to fabricate and to apply these dental appliances. Our team will discuss all aspects of your treatment with you, including the cost, and will work to make sure that your out-of-pocket expenses are as low as possible. If you have dental insurance, we will bill as much of the cost to your insurer to help you manage the financial aspects of your care.
What Is a Soft Reline for Dentures?
A soft denture reline is a pliable layer of cushioning that is applied between the hard surface of the denture and your gums. This will ensure greater comfort for you when adjusting to your new dentures.
