Dentures

If you're thinking about getting dentures, you might be asking yourself some questions: "How will they fit? Will they look natural? Will anyone know I'm wearing fake teeth?" You might be concerned about practical matters such as the cost of dentures and whether affordable dentures are within your reach.

Although no one welcomes a partial or full set of replacement teeth, they help you chew, eat and speak normally and without pain. They also keep any existing teeth you have from drifting out of position, which prevents a range of dental problems. Most important, affordable dentures restore your smile and give you the confidence to show off your pearly whites without feeling self-conscious about missing teeth. With proper denture care, your replacement teeth will last for years. 

 
Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing; partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain. The cost of dentures will in part be determined by which type you choose: 
 
A few basic questions our patients ask about dentures:
- What will they feel like?
Dentures may feel odd or even uncomfortable for the first few weeks. You may experience some minor irritation and soreness. These things usually get better as your mouth adjusts.
 
- Will they affect the way I talk?
Some words may be difficult to pronounce, so practice saying those words out loud for awhile. If your teeth click when you speak, contact your dentist.
 
- Will people know I'm wearing fake teeth?
Dentures are designed to resemble your natural teeth. You will be able to speak, chew and look just like someone with natural teeth.
