Dentures in Waldorf, MD

What Are the Benefits of Dentures?

Dentures are custom-designed to replace the teeth you’ve lost, whether you’re missing a few or most of your teeth. Tooth loss isn’t just a cosmetic issue, it’s a health issue too. Your jawbone actually needs the intermittent pressure of biting and chewing to retain its strength and structure. Allowing several teeth to go unreplaced makes your jaw structure vulnerable to decline, eroding your oral health and causing your cheeks and jaw to sag. Using affordable quality dentures allows you to eat fairly normally, keeping your jaw healthy and restoring your confident smile.

What Types of Dentures Are Available?

There are two broad categories of dentures: full sets and partials. A full denture replaces all of the teeth on your upper or lower jaw. Partials replace just a few missing teeth on either jaw. In both cases, you may have an option for immediate dentures. You may also have options ranging from conventional sets that you can secure with adhesive or clasps or newer versions that attach to dental posts implanted into your gum and jawbone.

Within the broad category of full and partial sets, you’ll also have many options as to the materials used. Partials, for instance, are available in metal and flexible plastic. Flexible partials and metal partials each have advantages and drawbacks. Talk with your dentist to find out what your particular options are for dentures in Waldorf. We’re always happy to schedule a consultation for you to discuss the process and your needs.

How Does Getting Dentures Work?

The process of being fitted for dentures depends on the current condition of your teeth and your lifestyle needs. In some cases, teeth need to be removed to make way for a full denture set. Sometimes, new crowns need to be placed to support a partial denture or jawbone needs to be augmented to provide strength for an implant-supported denture.

Once your teeth and gums are prepared, your dentist will take some measurements of your mouth and make an impression. This data is used to create wax samples that you’ll try on to find the right fit. Your final denture is made based on your chosen sample. When the denture is delivered to you, your dentist will also make some final refinements for comfort and function.

How Are All-on-Four Dentures Different?

Unlike a conventional denture that uses adhesive or clasps to stay in place, an All-on-Four denture attaches to four posts surgically implanted in your upper or lower jaw. Some people prefer this option because it provides greater biting power and better stability to the denture. This is especially true for lower jaw denture sets.

What Do Dentures Cost?

Costs range markedly, depending on how much pre-treatment you need, what type of denture you choose and the materials you request. Rest assured, though, that affordable quality dentures are widely available, so you shouldn’t have a problem working with your dentist to find an excellent option.

What Is a Soft Reline for Dentures?

As time goes by, your mouth, jaw and teeth change, even when you have dentures. With those changes, your denture may suddenly rub, chafe or slip in areas. A soft denture reline helps your existing denture fit more securely and comfortably. The procedure can be done in our office while you wait. We simply inject the base with a liquid polymer that provides more cushion to your denture.

Our dentists are available to help you find the denture that works best for you. Call our office today to discover how dentures may improve your life, health and smile.
