Full Dentures

Designed to help patients who are missing an entire arch of teeth, full dentures are custom-made replacement teeth that sit atop a gum-colored base. While the high-quality acrylic perfectly balances comfortability and durability, the teeth are custom-made from natural-looking material that resembles every detail of real enamel. They are held in place by a combination of natural suction and a special adhesive to ensure you can smile, talk, and laugh with complete confidence and minimal movement. Plus, they are completely removable, which allows you to complete your oral hygiene routine hassle-free.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are ideal for patients who are missing several teeth in a single arch, but still have a few of their natural ones intact. Like full dentures, they are incredibly life-like, entirely removable, and have a gum-colored base. However, instead of being held in place by adhesive, a metal piece is used, which discreetly fits behind your existing teeth.

Benefits of Dentures

Understanding the Cost of Dentures

Because each denture is custom-made for a patient’s unique mouth, the cost of dentures in Azle can vary quite a bit from patient to patient. During your initial consultation, Drs. Frank and Jodie Rubal can provide you with a cost estimate for your new teeth after examining your smile and discussing your specific goals, needs, and preferences. Read on to learn more about the price of replacing your missing teeth with dentures.

Factors that Affect the Cost of Dentures

These are the three main factors that will contribute to the cost of your dentures:

  • The preparation before getting your dentures will influence the cost. This includes gum disease therapy and extractions when necessary.
  • The materials used for the base and replacement teeth will play a role. The base is typically made from acrylic while the replacement teeth can be crafted from acrylic or porcelain.
  • The number of teeth that you need to have replaced will impact the cost. The more teeth, the higher the cost.

Are Implant Dentures More Expensive?

Implant dentures do cost more than traditional dentures, but there is good reason for it. Instead of being supported by the shape and suction of the gums, they are held into place by a series of dental implants that are placed into the jawbone via a surgical procedure. This allows for additional benefits, like being more lifelike, having additional stability, lasting for several decades, and preventing jawbone deterioration.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Dentures?

Dentures Aftercare

Dentures are an excellent option for those who have suffered from extensive tooth loss. However, even if you don’t have any healthy teeth remaining, you should still continue to see a dentist for routine checkups. These regular visits are important for a variety of reasons. Your dentist will continue to monitor any existing teeth and gum tissue. They will also be on the lookout for any abnormalities that could indicate oral cancer. When you have dentures, it is very challenging to notice this kind of thing on your own. Early detection from your dentist is key to making a full recovery!

Removeable Dentures

Remove After Eating

Once you finish a snack or meal, you should get into the habit of rinsing your dentures off. This helps to prevent the buildup of food debris and plaque. Be sure that the water you are using isn’t too hot, as high temperatures can warp the denture material, causing it to no longer fit properly.

Clean Your Restoration

When it’s time to clean your dentures, take them out. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and a small amount of hand soap, mild dish soap, or denture cleaner to gently brush your dentures. You shouldn’t use regular toothpaste because dentures aren’t made to stand up to abrasive materials. If you aren’t going to be using your dentures again right away, place them in a container of water or denture-cleansing solution so they don’t dry out. Remember to always rinse your dentures thoroughly before you put them back in your mouth.

Keep Your Dentures Safe

When it’s time to clean your dentures, it’s a good idea to place a towel beneath you just in case they slip out of your hands. This will reduce the probability of them becoming damaged. Remember to keep your dentures out of reach of any small children or curious pets.

Remove Dentures When You Sleep

When it’s time to go to bed, you should take out your dentures. This is because wearing dentures restricts the circulation in your gums, leading to soft tissue irritation. Sleeping with dentures has also been associated with higher levels of gum and tongue plaque. As you sleep, keep your dentures in a denture-soaking solution. Allowing them to dry out can cause them to permanently lose their shape.

Notice Changes

You should always be on the lookout for changes so you can address them with your dentist. This includes mouth sores, gum irritation, and signs of infection. If your dentures become damaged, don’t attempt to repair them on your own. Instead, give us a call so we can take a look.

All-on-4 Dental Implants

If you have all-on-4 dental implants, the aftercare process is a little bit different. You should brush your dentures twice daily using a soft-bristled manual or electric toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste. Floss your replacement teeth every day. You should also consider investing in a water flosser. For extra freshness, use an antibacterial mouthwash.

Denture FAQs

If you’re missing several, most of, or all of your teeth, dentures can be a lifechanging tooth replacement option. However, choosing a tooth replacement option is a huge decision, so it pays to be well-informed. Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we receive about dentures in Azle. If you don’t see the information that you’re looking for below, don’t worry! Give us a call and we’d be happy to answer your questions and get you started with an initial consultation.

Should I Have All My Teeth Pulled to Get Dentures?

Repairing a damaged tooth whenever possible is always preferable to replacing it. Tooth extractions of any kind will only ever be recommended if deemed absolutely necessary, like when a tooth is too damaged to save thanks to extensive decay, severe infection, or trauma that has broken off most of the enamel. If all of the teeth in an arch are decayed or infected with gum disease, replacing them with dentures may be a viable solution, but your dentist will always explore all of your options before recommending extractions for dentures.

Can I Sleep with My Dentures?

Dentists generally recommend taking your dentures out at night when you go to bed. When you first get your dentures, you’ll typically be told to keep them in your mouth for 24 hours, including while you sleep. After this, you should be taking them out every evening. Wearing dentures restricts the circulation in your gums, leading to soft tissue irritation and potentially speeding up ridge resorption. Taking dentures out gives the gums a chance to recover and get the nutrients they need while you sleep.

Will It Hurt to Get Dentures?

If you need to have teeth extracted before you get dentures, you are likely to experience some discomfort after the oral surgery. Take your prescribed pain medication only as directed. The discomfort should improve 2 to 5 days after the procedure. When you first receive new dentures, some minor irritation may occur while your mouth adjusts to the new appliance. The amount of time that this lasts will vary from person to person. If it persists, give us a call so we can help.

Will Dentures Change the Shape of My Face?

When you lose your teeth, your facial muscles will begin to sag, and that can give your face a sunken appearance. Getting dentures will mean providing support to the facial muscles that have collapsed, therefore improving your appearance. Ill-fitting dentures may not give your facial muscles the proper support they need, so you should have yours refitted or replaced as soon as you realize it doesn’t fit properly.
