Dentures in Thorndale, PA

Why Are Dentures a Good Solution?

Dentures are replacements for your damaged or missing teeth, helping you to retain your oral health and good nutrition. Dentures offer several health benefits, including keeping your jawbone strong and allowing you to eat fairly normally. Your jawbone needs the daily pressure of teeth biting against one another to stay sturdy. Without that pressure, you lose bone density and strength, changing your health and your appearance. If you’re embarrassed to talk to others or smile widely because of your missing teeth, affordable quality dentures are also a good way to regain your self-confidence and broad smile.

Types of Dentures

Advances in dental technology give you many different options for dentures in Thorndale. Here are a few options you may discuss with our dentist:

Full or Partial Dentures

Full dentures, often called complete dentures, replace all of your teeth on your lower or upper jaw, while partials simply replace a few missing teeth. If you’re missing nearly all of your teeth on the upper or lower jaw, a full set is probably best for you.

Implant-supported or Conventional; Metal or Flexible

Next, our dentist will help you decide on the type of denture that’s best for you. A full conventional denture rests directly on your gums, secured with denture adhesive. Your full denture can also attach to posts surgically implanted into your jaw.

Dentures can also be implant-supported, but traditional partials with metal plate bases or flexible partial dentures are more common. Both metal and flexible plastic partials attach to your gums with clasps that wrap around healthy adjacent teeth. Some patients prefer a flexible plastic denture over metal because it’s more pliable and comfortable.

Acrylic Resin or Porcelain

You may also be given a choice of either acrylic resin or porcelain teeth. Acrylic resin often conforms better to your existing bite, but porcelain is more durable.

When Are All-on-Four Dentures a Good Option?

An All-on-Four denture is a type of implant-supported denture. It anchors to four dental implants to keep it secure. It’s especially stable for lower dentures that tend to be looser. If you’re concerned about maintaining your current jawbone strength and having strong biting power, an All-on-Four option is a good choice.

Are Dentures Economical?

Yes, dentures cost much less than a variety of alternatives. Several factors will determine the cost of your denture, including how much pre-treatment you require and the type of denture you select. Our dentist is happy to review costs with you as you decide what type of denture you need. Call our office for a consultation to get started on your restored smile and health.

What’s the Process for Getting Dentures?

Affordable quality dentures require a multi-step process. First, your teeth, gums and jaw are prepared for the denture. This may involve tooth extractions, crown placements or jawbone augmentation. After pre-treatment is complete and your gums have healed, an impression of your mouth is made. This impression guides the crafting of a few denture wax samples that you’ll try in to determine a good fit. Once you’ve selected the best wax sample, your permanent denture is made and delivered.

What Are the Benefits of a Soft Denture Reline?

A soft reline injects a cushioning buffer into the plate of your denture, helping it to fit more securely and comfortably. This is especially helpful when your denture is rubbing or shifting uncomfortably.

Our expert staff is always happy to talk with you about your dental health and restorative options, so schedule an appointment today. It’s never too soon to restore your confidence, smile and health.
