Why Choose Webster Dental Associates of Manchester for Dentures?

Traditional Full Dentures

If you have an entire arch of teeth missing, Dr. Golparvar will likely recommend a full denture to provide the complete coverage you need for a fully restored smile. Crafted using an acrylic base and artificial teeth, the prosthetic sits on top of your gums while your natural suction holds it in place. Although, you may find it more comforting to use a small bit of denture adhesive to help provide added security. Because full dentures are removable, you will need to take them out at night and let them soak while you are sleeping, as this will help to keep your dentures clean and give your jawbone and gum tissue a chance to breathe.

Traditional Partial Dentures

If you are missing one or more teeth along the top or bottom arch of the mouth but still possess several natural, healthy teeth, you can opt for a partial denture. Made similarly to a full denture, the only difference is that a partial incorporates the use of metal clips or brackets that anchor to your healthy teeth and hold the prosthetic in place. Similar to a puzzle piece, it blends in with your natural teeth and provides added functionality, allowing you to speak and eat with ease. Just like a full denture, you can easily remove your partial and clean it at night.

Implant Dentures

If you prefer a more permanent tooth replacement solution, you can always talk to your dentist in Manchester about receiving implant dentures. Creating a more stable foundation for your new and improved smile, between 4 and 6 dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone and are designed to support a custom-made denture that is attached over the implants. Not only will it continue to stimulate the bone and prevent facial collapse, but implant dentures are capable of lasting decades or longer with proper care and maintenance.

Most individuals who suffer from tooth loss of any kind are potential candidates for dentures. The reason is that even if the mouth is not prepared for these prosthetics just yet, various preliminary treatments can be provided to ensure success in the future. When meeting with your denture dentist, we will go over your oral and overall health as well as your jawbone density to determine how best to proceed.

Effects of Missing Teeth

Missing tooth in Manchester

Missing teeth do more than just negatively affect your appearance. They also keep you from being able to eat normally, speak clearly, and smile confidently. No matter how many teeth are missing, whether it is one, multiple, or an entire arch, it’s important that you seek timely care instead of experiencing the following:

  • Facial sagging
  • Jawbone resorption
  • Additional tooth loss

What Qualifies You for Dentures?

Full dentures in Manchester

No matter the type of denture you receive, it is important that you have good general oral health. This means, should Dr. Golparvar discover signs of tooth decay or gum disease, you will need to address these problems first before moving forward with your chosen tooth replacement solution. If you are preparing for implant dentures, you will also need ample bone density to support your customized denture.

When meeting with your dentist to discuss your options, he will likely evaluate your jawbone, gum health, and the number of missing teeth to determine if you are a candidate and which type of denture is right for you.

Alternative Tooth-Replacement Options

While full and partial dentures are viable options when it comes to replacing missing teeth, there are alternative solutions that offer the same great results. You can expect that we will go over these with you during your initial consultation:

  • Dental Bridges – Combining dental crowns with artificial teeth (pontics), we can create a fixed dental bridge that relies on healthy abutment teeth to remain in place. Those located on either side of the gap will be prepared and altered so that they properly anchor the bridge, ensuring it does not move but instead, delivers optimal function and aesthetics. The remaining pontics will rest on top of your gums.
  • Dental Implants – Although more invasive than dentures or dental bridges, dental implants are permanent prosthetics that are surgically placed into the jawbone and fuse with the surrounding tissues. Creating a firm foundation for your new teeth, a dental crown, bridge, or implant denture can be secured into place. With optimal care, these prosthetics can last a lifetime.

Benefits of Dentures

Factors That Affect the Cost of Dentures

When calculating the cost of dentures in Manchester, there are several factors you must take into consideration. Some major elements that influence the final price tag include:

  • Any preliminary dental work that’s needed (i.e., tooth extractions, gum disease therapy, etc.)
  • Number of missing teeth
  • Type of acrylic used for the base (the part that’s dyed to match the color of the gum tissue)
  • Materials your replacement teeth are made of (i.e., porcelain or acrylic)

Patients on a budget may be tempted to opt for a cheaper denture. However, that’s generally not recommended because more affordable oral appliances tend to break easily and will require replacement much sooner than you’d expect. When exploring your denture options, it’s important to remember that a higher-quality item is typically worth the investment.

Are Implant Dentures More Expensive?

Yes, but there’s a good reason for that. Implant dentures require oral surgery and the placement of multiple dental implants, which is why they’re much more reliable for day-to-day use than traditional dentures. You don’t have to worry about them slipping and sliding around your mouth while you eat or speak! Plus, dental implants help stimulate the jawbone to prevent its deterioration, allowing you to enjoy increased biting strength and longevity.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Dentures?

The good news is that most dental insurance plans offer some level of coverage for dentures since they’re considered a major procedure. In most cases, around 50% of the total cost is covered by dental insurance. Of course, the exact amount will vary from plan to plan. Before committing to anything, you should confirm the details with your provider. Our team will gladly help with this step if needed! We’ll figure out the best way to maximize your benefits and reduce your out-of-pocket expenses.

Other Options for Making Dentures Affordable

Denture FAQs

No two dentures are alike because they are highly personalized to fit inside your mouth exactly and last for years to come. However, if you’ve never had dentures before or you’re helping a family member learn more about the process of receiving them, Webster Dental Associates of Manchester has got you covered. Below, you can find answers to the most common questions Dr. Golparvar hears when it comes to denture treatment. If you have additional questions, please give his office a call!

How Long Will You Have to Wait to Get Dentures After Your Teeth are Pulled?

Once teeth have been pulled, it generally takes about 6 to 8 weeks to receive a denture. However, this length of time can vary depending on the type of denture you choose. The gums need time to heal properly so the dentures have a reliable foundation to rest on. If you receive immediate dentures, they can be placed the same day as the extraction. If you intend on getting implant dentures, about four to six months of healing will be necessary before a permanent restoration can be attached. This is because the implants need to fuse with the existing bone tissue, providing the denture a strong and reliable foundation.

Can I Sleep with My Dentures?

Dentists recommend taking out your dentures before going to bed or taking naps. The exception is during the first 24 hours after you receive the denture. Once that period has passed, you should begin removing your denture every evening. The longer you wear your denture, the less circulation occurs in your gums. This can cause soft tissue irritation and even lead to ridge resorption, which negatively affects your bone density. When you take the dentures out, it gives the gums a chance to recover and get the nutrients they need at night. Taking them out also reduces your risk of conditions like pneumonia and higher levels of gum and tongue plaque.

Which Denture is Right for Me?

There are three main types of dentures to choose from. That includes full, partial, and implant dentures. Dr. Golparvar will help determine which denture is right for you. For example, partial dentures are more ideal when you still have some or even most of your teeth, but you’ve lost a few over the years (especially on opposite sides of your mouth). Full dentures are more appropriate when you’ve already lost all of your teeth or don’t have any remaining teeth that can be salvaged. As long as you have enough bone tissue available, implant dentures can not only be considered, but be a substantially more effective solution for severe tooth loss.

Will It Hurt to Get Dentures?

Our office works hard to create as comfortable of a dental experience as possible. In the event you need to have teeth extracted to make room for a denture, there is some mild discomfort after treatment. You’ll be asked to take prescribed medications as needed to manage this discomfort over the next few days. After you receive the denture, you’ll likely notice some mild irritation as your mouth adjusts to the appliance. As you get used to wearing the denture over the next few months, the irritation should reduce dramatically. Call our office right away if the pain does not go away as there could be an underlying dental issue that needs attention.
