When teeth are missing, you may not be able to enjoy the things you have always taken for granted, such as certain foods, the way you speak, smiling at someone, and adverse effects on your health. Dentures are a restorative dental treatment that can allow you to get these pleasures in life back.
Some patients have long-lasting dental issues and need to have their teeth extracted. If and when all your teeth are missing, you are a candidate for complete dentures. Dentures have come a long way since they were first used. Dentures can now be placed in your mouth around eight to twelve weeks after all the teeth have been removed. Once all the teeth have been removed, there will be temporary dentures placed in the mouth until a period of healing is over.
These temporary dentures allow the patient to eat and continue with their regular lifestyle until the permanent ones can be made.
At Atlantic Dentistry, we understand the need for an option that allows patients to have a confident smile again. We offer the latest technology to create dentures that will feel natural and look amazing. Complete dentures can help you enjoy your life to the fullest.
Another option that Atlantic Dentistry has available are partial dentures. A partial denture is a good option if you have a few teeth missing. Partial dentures are replacement teeth with a gum-colored base that are placed where teeth are missing. A partial denture helps the remaining teeth by preventing them from moving, and it can also help patients avoid the appearance of sunken muscles in the face. A partial denture is detachable and can be taken in and out of the mouth. It still looks very natural and is an affordable option if you only have a few teeth missing.
At Atlantic Dentistry, we are proud to offer several types of dentures to meet each patients’ unique needs. Our lineup includes:
Traditional dentures are removable and are taken out every night to clean. They are the least expensive option, and many patients prefer these because no surgery is required.
Also known as implant-supported dentures, this type of denture is anchored to your jaw with dental implants that have been surgically placed in the jaw. These are extremely secure, allowing you to eat, speak and smile without ever worrying about your dentures slipping.
For our patients who already have dentures, denture stabilization is a great option. We can fit your existing denture with snap-on attachments so they can be attached to dental implants that are surgically placed in your jaw. This provides a more stable foundation for your dentures.
At Atlantic Dentistry, we participate with most insurance companies, and we also have financing available with flexible payment options. Contact us today to get your consultation scheduled. We will help you take control of your oral health and improve your overall appearance.
