There is no perfect substitute for your natural teeth. Your natural teeth have a bite force close to 200 psi; with dental dentures, your bite force is about 50 pounds of force. That means you can bite at least 4 times harder with your real teeth. That’s a substantial difference. Therefore, our dentist, Dr. Arndt, will do everything he can to save your actual teeth before recommending replacements like dentures.
If replacing your teeth becomes unavoidable, our denture dentist, Dr. Arndt, can help. The process of getting dental dentures requires several appointments, usually over several weeks or months. Your length of wait will depend on the type of dentures you receive. For a better fit, a set of dental dentures are made about three to six months after your teeth are extracted. This allows time for your gum tissue to heal and the jaw bone to shrink as it heals. The waiting period also ensures that the dentures will fit properly.
During your initial consolation, our denture dentist, Dr. Arndt, will walk you through all your options and design a customized treatment plan to meet your individual needs. Our team will then take highly-accurate impressions (molds) and measurements that will be used to create your dentures, which are designed to fit your specific mouth. We use state-of-the-art technologies to craft dentures that are not only beautiful, but comfortable and functional. Several “try-in” appointments may be necessary to ensure proper shape, color, and fit.
At your final appointment, our denture dentist will precisely adjust and place the completed dental prosthetic, ensuring a natural and comfortable fit. It is normal to experience increased saliva flow, some soreness, and possible speech and chewing difficulty. Fortunately, this will subside as your muscles and tissues get used to your new dentures. Dr. Arndt, will also take the time to carefully explain how to care for your dentures, so they last longer. Our affordable dentures are very durable prosthetics and can last many years, but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear.
Our Affordable Denture Solutions
We offer multiple denture solutions. Dr. Arndt will take the time to discuss which one will be best for your smile. Dental dentures are divided into different categories based on how many teeth they replace, how they are secured, and how soon they can be worn.
Temporary Immediate Dentures
We offer temporary immediate denture solutions while you wait for your final custom ones to be crafted. These temporarily dentures can be made before your natural teeth are extracted. These dentures are considered temporary because, as the gums heal and the jaw bone shrinks, their fit can be compromised. They can sometimes be relined to help with the shrinkage. Occasionally, this option can end up being the final denture, but several relines and adjustments are typically needed and, depending on the severity of the shrinkage, making a new custom fit denture is sometimes a better choice.
A partial denture is a removable dental prosthetic that fills intermittent gaps in a smile. This option uses your remaining teeth to help anchor the appliance in place. They can be removed from the mouth for cleaning and when you are sleeping.
Full dentures are for patients who have lost all of their natural teeth in their upper and/or lower jaw. A full denture for the upper jaw consists of false teeth affixed to a flesh-colored acrylic base, which covers the gums and the roof of the mouth. When replacing teeth in the lower jaw, full dentures are shaped like horseshoes to allow the tongue to rest comfortably.
An overdenture usually involves dental implants. Alternatively, we could potentially also use the roots of your natural teeth. These dental dentures are “snapped” down over the implants to help hold them in place. Implants can be a great way to make wearing a denture more comfortable and increase your confidence while speaking and chewing. However, implants will increase the cost of the denture and will involve surgery.
