What You Should Know About Dentures
Dentures can give you the confidence you need to go about your daily activities, attend social events, and eat your favorite foods. At Broadway Family Dentistry, our goal is to help you feel and look your absolute best. If your teeth cannot be restored, we can make custom dentures to fit your specific needs.
Types of Dentures
Tooth loss may be the result of aging or an accident. When teeth are missing and cannot be restored, dentures are an excellent option. Dentures can be formed to replace a few or all of one’s teeth. Complete dentures are used for people who have lost all or the majority of their teeth. If you are missing only a few teeth, “fixed partial” dentures (also referred to as “crown and bridge”) are used. Partial dentures are carefully and meticulously installed in the mouth to make sure they do not cause a problem with the surrounding healthy teeth. Removable dentures are different from fixed partial dentures in that they are often used by patients who have lost too many teeth to need fixed dentures and too few teeth to get complete dentures.
The side effects
Like any dental cosmetic treatment or procedure, the results take some time to get familiar with. It is possible to get used to your dentures by practicing patience. Soon enough, you’ll be so used to your dentures that you’ll forget you’re wearing any. If you have any concerns about how to get used to your dentures, express your anxiety to your dentist. We want to ensure that we are helping you feel as confident and comfortable as possible with your new dentures.
The majority of dental insurance providers offer full or partial coverage for dentures. If you need dentures, make sure you contact your insurance provider to find out the specific details of your dental plan to see if you are covered.
