Although you never expected it to happen to you, you are now living with missing teeth. You are not alone. In fact, at least 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth while another 35 million have no remaining natural teeth. With each tooth you have lost, your ability to chew your favorite foods and speak clearly is more challenging. This issue can also result in self-esteem issues that deter you from smiling, laughing, or showing your mouth in any way. We understand the challenges you face. Your dentist in Orlando can restore your smile with partials or dentures.
Dentures are an affordable and convenient solution to treat missing teeth. Although they have a bad reputation for looking fake, new advancements in dentistry allow them to look more natural than ever before. They provide a more comfortable fit to reduce any slipping or irritation, so you can chew, speak, and smile with confidence.
It is tempting to leave the empty spaces in your smile untreated; however, this is never the ideal option. Every tooth is invaluable to your oral health and functions. When even one is missing, it can lead to dental complications, like tooth decay and gum disease. You may also develop nutritional deficiencies because many foods may be too difficult to eat.
Dentures in Orlando allow you to rebuild your smile to protect your oral and general health. With the right care, you can enjoy a solution that lasts for as long as 5 years before needing to be replaced. You can eat many of your favorite foods again and protect any remaining natural teeth from complications.
Dentures can replace several missing teeth in a row or an entire arch. Depending on your degree of tooth loss, we will determine which type of denture is right for you.
Several missing teeth in a row can be replaced with a partial. Custom-made prosthetic teeth are featured in a gum-colored base. It is attached to a metal framework that allows it to clasp onto your natural teeth to hold it in place.
A complete arch is replaced with a full denture. An impression of your mouth is used to create an acrylic gum-colored base to hold your new teeth. Suction or an adhesive is used to hold it in place.
You can enjoy a more permanent solution with implant-retained dentures. Instead of suction or an adhesive, an average of 4 implant posts anchors your denture to your jawbone. With the potential to last forever, you can make a long-term investment in your smile.
There is no set price tag for dentures because the amount you pay is based on your individual treatment plan. There are several factors that influence the price, such as how many teeth are being replaced, if any additional procedures are needed, and your insurance coverage.
