If you are considering low cost dentures, you probably have a lot of questions. After all, dentures are a big investment in your health and appearance. Here is a breakdown of answers to many of the most frequently asked questions we hear about dentures:
Do I need dentures?
You will want to talk to your dentist to determine if dentures make sense for you. Every determination is made on a case-by-case basis only after a consultation and examination.
What are dentures?
Dentures are designed as replacements for your original teeth, to replace missing teeth, usually when you need to replace either all of your teeth or a significant number of them. In our office Dentures are custom-made in a laboratory and are designed to fit YOUR mouth.
How do dentures work?
If your grandparents wore dentures, odds are good that they were just “sets of teeth” that sat on the gums. Those types of dentures were uncomfortable at best, and tended to slip easily, making eating and speaking difficult as there was nothing holding them in place. In addition, because there are no teeth the body has no need for the jaw bone so the body begins to resorb (dissolve) the bone.
One of the most common choices today for dentures in Marietta, GA are sometimes referred to as “implant-supported” or “implant retained” dentures. These are much more stable because they fit into implants that are attached to the jaw. The dentures then snap or lock into place when worn.
Come to Shallowford Dental to discuss the right option for you!
What happens during the appointment when a patient gets dentures?
You will meet first for a consultation and exam. After that, the process will involve several appointments and it will take some time to make sure the dentures are made correctly to fit your mouth. In the case of implant-supported dentures, you will have a surgical appointment when the implants are placed in your jaw. Depending on which option you choose sometimes the dentures can be attached to the implants IMMEDIATELY. In some cases we will allow approximately 3-6 months healing time after the initial surgery to allow the implants to integrate with the jaw bone, and then the second stage of treatment can be done where the dentures can be attached to the implants.
What are the benefits of dentures?
Perhaps the biggest and most important benefit is that dentures will help restore your confidence so you can eat and smile with ease. Implant-supported dentures, like those provided by Shallowford Dental, also can help provide support in the jaw for the bone and facial muscles. This can avoid a common problem of the dentures of decades past, which was a sagging face that made wearers look older than they were. Implant Supported dentures will also help you feel more comfortable doing everyday things like eating and speaking, giving you’re the confidence of looking and feeling like you have natural teeth. Today’s dentures also look natural, and will blend with your hair, skin and eye color.
