When you have multiple compromised teeth, chewing and eating might be uncomfortable or even painful for you. You may find yourself feeling self-conscious about your smile or hiding it from others, which diminishes your confidence.
Losing multiple teeth may feel hopeless, but you should know that partial and full dentures offer solutions for patients with compromised smiles. You may find yourself eating and smiling with ease again in no time when you choose a denture to restore your smile.
The cost of dentures is going to vary for each patient, depending on their specific needs. For example, someone who is missing a few teeth but still has many healthy ones left in their mouth may benefit from a partial denture.
Partial dentures are removable and anchor to your healthy teeth with metal clasps. The appliance has prosthetic teeth strategically placed to fill in the gaps and spaces in your smile. This appliance may cost less than a full denture that is designed to restore your entire smile.
A full denture is made of acrylic designed to replace all of your teeth and restore function and aesthetics to your smile. Full dentures use suction and a snug fit to stay in place; however, they are removable so that you can take them out at night for cleaning.
Another option for denture wearers is implant-supported dentures, which utilize dental implants to support a denture and hold it in place securely. This option will likely be the costliest for patients but offers the most longevity since dental implants help keep your jawbone healthy.
