Are You Ready for Affordable Quality Dentures?
The most common prosthetic dental devices used to replace human teeth are removable and permanent dentures. If advanced gum disease has resulted in premature tooth loss, an affordable dentist in Downtown Detroit can help you restore your smile and improve your self-esteem by creating natural-looking dentures to replace missing or diseased teeth. Getting dentures can be a slow process that takes several months, because it’s often necessary to remove remaining teeth and wait for tissues to heal completely before inserting and fitting new prosthetics. Once your mouth is ready, you’ll get a brand new smile.
Types of Affordable Quality Dentures
- Immediate dentures are placed on the same day tooth extractions are performed. These are a temporary solution while permanent dentures are being made. Periodic adjustments are often required.
- A full or complete set of permanent dentures replaces all upper or lower teeth.
- Partial dentures correct gaps when only a few teeth are missing. Attachments are used to hold the dentures in place. Acrylic partial dentures form a plate that covers the entire roof of your mouth, while metal partial dentures only cover part of the area and are generally more comfortable to wear.
- Overdentures fit over and attach to one or more natural teeth. Implants also can be used as anchors for overdentures. Overdentures often require multiple dentist appointments because of their complexity.
Pros and Cons of Dentures
- The pros of dentures include prevention of tooth migration, support for sagging facial muscles, and improved appearance and self-esteem. With dentures, you may be able to eat and speak normally again.
- The cons of dentures are a temporary, sometimes frustrating, adjustment period; a reduced ability to taste food; and potential mouth irritation if routine dental care is neglected. As your mouth changes shape over time, your dentist in Downtown Detroit may need to adjust or replace your dentures.
