What Are Removable Dentures?
If your gums and any remaining teeth are healthy, you are likely a candidate for traditional dentures, also known as removable dentures, false teeth, or fake teeth. Traditional dentures are removable, and held in place with a combination of natural suction and a mild adhesive. These dentures can effectively restore your appearance, improve your speech, and enable you to eat the foods that you love!
Removable dentures come in two forms: complete dentures, also known as full dentures, as well as partial dentures. As the name suggests, complete dentures are designed for those who have lost all of their teeth, while partial dentures are designed to help those who have lost several teeth.
If you are facing multiple extractions, our Mountain View dentists can create a flipper, a temporary filler to be used while the partial denture is being fabricated.
What Are Implant-Retained Dentures?
Whenever appropriate, our doctors recommend implant-retained dentures because they offer greater stability and halt jawbone degeneration. Implant-retained dentures are permanently attached to dental implants, which are surgically embedded in the jaw. The implants fuse with the jawbone, providing a stable foundation for the dentures.
Because this option is not removable, there is no risk of your dentures slipping out of place when you eat or speak. You can enjoy crisp fresh fruit, rare steaks, corn on the cob, and other foods that can be incredibly difficult to eat when wearing traditional removable dentures. The best candidates for dental implant-supported dentures are non-smokers in good oral health who either have ample jawbone tissue or are willing to undergo a bone graft.
How Much Do Dentures Cost?
Total dentures cost varies from patient to patient and mostly depends on the following factors:
- The type of dentures system selected (i.e. traditional dentures, partial dentures, implant-retained dentures)
- The current oral health of the patient
- If any preliminary procedures are required prior to creating the dentures
