Dentures in Lake Katrine, NY

What Do Dentures Do for Your Health?

Losing your teeth not only changes your appearance, it jeopardizes your health as well. Eating becomes difficult when you’re missing teeth so you change what you eat, potentially negatively impacting your overall health. When teeth are missing, that beneficial bone structure is gone and you lose bone density and facial structure. Affordable quality dentures halt that downward spiral, enabling normal eating habits, a strong jawbone and a happy and healthy smile. Don’t put your general health at risk because of missing teeth, call our office today to start the process for getting dentures.

What Are the Different Types of Dentures?

Denture options are numerous, so you can always find the right combination of style and material to suit your needs. Partial dentures are preferred if you are missing just a few teeth on your upper or lower jaw. Full dentures, or complete dentures, are a good choice if you’re missing all or most of your teeth on either jaw. Both types are removable for easy cleaning and nighttime storage.

Our dentist works with you to determine what type of denture attachment will work best for your specific needs. Implant-supported dentures are available for both full and partial denture sets, but they’re most common with full replacements.

If you don’t choose an implant-supported option for your full denture, you’ll likely choose one that rests directly on your gums and uses adhesive for stability.

Aside from the occasional implant-supported partial, most partials are anchored in place with a clasp that hooks around adjacent healthy teeth. Metal partials have a metal plate base and metal wire clasps that are slightly visible. Flexible partial dentures have a comfortable and pliable plate base and plastic, flesh-colored clasps that are practically undetectable.

All-on-Four Dentures

If you want to maintain your biting strength, a more robust jawbone and a secure fit, you may prefer an All-on-Four denture. This is an implant-supported denture that snaps onto four dental posts surgically implanted into your jawbone. These are popular dentures in Lake Katrine, and our dentist is happy to explain the benefits and drawbacks of this type of denture at your next visit.

What Do Dentures Cost?

The type of denture you choose and the amount of pretreatment you need all determine the total cost of your new denture. There are plenty of affordable quality dentures available locally so finding the right solution for your missing teeth should be relatively easy.

How Do You Get Dentures?

First, make an appointment with one of our experienced dentists to begin deciding a treatment plan. Often, your gums, any remaining teeth and jaw need to be prepared to support your new denture. This pretreatment can involve procedures like tooth extractions or crown placement. It will take a few weeks to heal from these procedures, but once you’re healed, an impression of your mouth is taken. This impression guides the making of denture samples which you’ll try to find the right fit. Once you’ve settled on the right sample, your final denture is made. When it’s delivered, your dentist will work with you to make small refinements for a truly comfortable and snug fit.

What Is a Soft Reline for Dentures?

Your gums, jaw and inner cheeks change as time goes by, shifting the way your denture fits. A soft denture reline provides a little extra cushion to the plate of your denture, helping it conform better to your mouth.

Dentures offer a wide range of benefits to your health and smile. Schedule a consultation today so you can discover how you can restore your oral and dental health with new dentures.
