If you’ve lost multiple or all teeth in a particular arch of your smile, it can be very difficult to perform basic tasks like chewing throughout the day. Furthermore, tooth loss can eventually lead to misalignment in your smile and bite overall as neighboring teeth begin to move to compensate the space. Luckily, there’s a solution that’s helped patients prevent these problems for years! When you visit the dentists in Newtown, you can get an affordable solution to tooth loss. Full and partial dentures are more lifelike now than ever before and solve many issues related to tooth loss. Pretty soon, you’ll have a customized denture ready to wear and be smiling again in no time!

The Benefits of Dentures

Not only do dentures restore the functions of your teeth, meaning you can chew foods again without much issue, but you can also speak properly and pronounce words you may have had trouble with in the past. Dentures help lift the dietary restrictions you had before and make it easy to express yourself, both through your speech and through your smile. No longer will you feel embarrassed to smile when you wear a full or partial denture! Dentures work to boost your confidence and make you feel ready to be your true self when spending time with friends, family and coworkers. Dentures can last between 5 and 10 years before needing to be replaced, so you can smile and eat your favorite foods with confidence after making your investment!

Full, Partial, and Implant-Retained Dentures

Dentists typically offer three types of dentures. Here’s what you can expect from each. A full denture is ideal for those who have lost a majority of their teeth, particularly in an entire arch. Also known as complete dentures, this dental appliance utilizes a plastic base that is gum-colored, helping it blend in with your existing gum tissue. It supports a full set of plastic or porcelain teeth and is held in place by forming a seal with your gums. Denture adhesive can also be used to keep the denture in place more effectively. Alternatively, a partial denture is ideal for those only missing a handful of teeth. They are made from either a plastic base or metal framework and typically held in place with metal clasps while still customized to adapt around your natural teeth. If you want your denture to fit in place even more effectively, you may want to consider an implant-retained denture. This denture is fitted with attachments specifically designed to fit with dental implants placed in the jawbone. You can learn more about them here!

Dentures FAQs

Missing teeth can make you miss out on some of the most basic joys of life, like chewing, laughing, and smiling with confidence. Thankfully, dentures in Newtown can help you regain those lost joys back again by giving you completely lifelike teeth. However, you might have some questions about the finer details of the dentures process. Not to worry; we’ve taken some of our most frequently asked questions about dentures and answered them for your convenience.

How Much Do Dentures Cost?

The total cost of your dentures will vary greatly depending on several different factors, such as the time required to create your dentures, which type of dentures you’re receiving, and whether any preliminary treatment like tooth extractions or gum disease therapy are needed. Your total cost may also be influenced by the level of coverage from your insurance carrier. In general, you can expect your insurance company to pay for a portion of the cost of dentures, but don’t expect any coverage before contacting them first to inquire about potential coverage.

How Do I Care for My Dentures?

Do not brush your dentures with toothpaste, as that can wear down the material. Instead, use a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean your dentures every morning and night. It also helps to gently brush your gums, tongue, and palate in the morning (with a different brush). This will stimulate blood flow and reduce the amount of plaque in your mouth, lessening your risk of infection. When you aren’t wearing your dentures, soak them in a special denture cleansing liquid.

Can I Sleep in My Dentures?

While you can keep your dentures in at night, it’s highly recommended that you remove them while you sleep. This gives your gums and jawbone a chance to rest from the pressure of holding your dentures in place all day. Additionally, you have the opportunity to soak your dentures at night to remove any plaque that may have accumulated on them.

Can I Eat Normally with Dentures?

Most patients have to take some time to get used to eating with dentures. At first, hard or sticky foods may give you a little trouble. It helps to start by cutting your food up into bite-sized pieces and chewing evenly with both sides of your mouth to prevent your dentures from loosening or falling out of place. Applying a pea-sized amount of denture adhesive may help to stabilize the dentures and let you eat without worrying about them moving around.
