Dentures can be a great choice if you want to replace several or more missing teeth. Dentures may be able to restore your smile and help you eat and speak with more confidence. The experienced practitioners at Buford Family Dentistry can create many types of dentures for residents in Buford, GA, including partial, full, fixed, or removable.
Full dentures replace your entire lower arch, upper arch, or both, compared to partial dentures that use your remaining teeth as support. While removable dentures can be taken out for cleaning and sleeping, implant-supported dentures are placed permanently. These are typically used when the jawbone is strong enough to support implants. Our general dentists can help you determine which type of dentures fit your goals, and then have your dentures made custom to look beautiful. Make an appointment to get more information about custom dentures.
You could be a good candidate for dentures if you are missing most or all of your teeth, but your gums and jawbone are still healthy. If you have natural teeth, they can either be removed if you want a full denture or you can keep them as support for a partial. We will also examine your overall oral health to determine if you're a candidate for removable or implant-supported dentures. During your initial consultation with Buford Family Dentistry, we will explain your options carefully to fit your needs and budget.
What To Expect
In some cases, our practitioners will perform an extraction on any remaining teeth before impressions are taken, which will help us customize your dentures. Partial dentures will be colored to blend with your remaining teeth for an attractive finish. As soon as your custom dentures are made, our staff will fit them so they are secure and comfortable. We will also talk about how to clean and care for your dentures at home.
It may require time before your dentures feel natural; however, it should become easier to speak and eat normally. If the dentures feel loose, come back to Buford Family Dentistry to get them re-fitted. You will need to clean your dentures with a toothbrush two times daily. If your dentures are removable, they need to be soaked to prevent them from drying out. You should continue to attend cleanings and exams at Buford Family Dentistry so we can examine the fit and wear of your restoration and the overall health of your mouth. We will discuss when your dentures need to be replaced or repaired; however, with ideal treatment, your custom dentures can last for years.
If you are using insurance, some of the expenses of your custom dentures will usually be paid for. We will talk to your dental insurance to understand your benefits and personal costs. At your initial consultation, we will develop your treatment so your dentures match your budget and needs. For help making your dentures affordable with or without dental insurance, Buford Family Dentistry takes several payment methods, including low-interest medical financing.
