Are missing teeth making it difficult to speak or painful to eat? Or are the gaps in your smile leaving you feeling self-conscious and discouraged? Dentures are a time-tested and cost-effective way to enhance your smile and function and regain your youthful appearance, even after you’ve lost most or all your teeth. Though dentures of the past have a bad reputation, advancements in techniques and materials make dentures of today a customizable, comfortable, and attractive solution for missing teeth. At Elan Dental Group we offer high-quality, yet affordable denture solutions and are in network with many leading insurance companies. No matter the number of teeth you’ve lost, our prosthodontist can help you smile with confidence again and restore your dental function with modern dentures.
Modern dentures come in many different shapes and sizes to fit the unique needs of your oral health situation. Complete dentures are designed to replace an entire arch of missing or failing teeth. They’re generally made from acrylic or porcelain and rely on natural suction or adhesives to remain in place. Partial dentures are customized to fit around remaining teeth and fill in gaps of missing teeth. They can be made with either a plastic or metal framework and rely on clasps to remain secure. Both dentures and partial dentures are removable, making hygiene maintenance easy.
Our team at Elan Dental Group provides complete and partial dentures that are personalized to your oral health needs and your smile goals. We’ll first take a series of digital impressions of your jaw ridge and oral tissues, which will be used to handcraft your new dentures in our full-service in-house dental laboratory. This is an incredibly detailed and precise process that involves the skill and artistry of an experienced dental lab technician. He or she will carefully design and build your dentures to look and feel just like natural teeth and gums. Throughout this process, you may need to return to our office to have a wax try-in to verify proper fit. Once this highly customized process is finished, your dentures will be ready for their final fitting in your mouth and you’ll be able to leave our office with a beautifully complete, healthy, and youthful smile!
Dentures have a learning curve as you adjust to wearing your new teeth, but you’ll become used to them in just a few weeks. You’ll then experience the benefits of our modern dentures, including:
