Full and Partial Dentures in Jaffrey, NH
At Monadnock Dental Associates, we offer full and partial dentures. Full dentures are used when all teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. Dentures are an essential part of maintaining oral health, as they help prevent gum disease and restore proper chewing function.
What is the process for getting dentures?
The first step to getting dentures is to schedule a consultation with our dentists. We will evaluate your oral health during the consultation and discuss your treatment options. If you decide to move forward with dentures, we will take impressions of your teeth and gums, and these impressions will be used to create your custom dentures.
Once your dentures are ready, you will come back to our office for a fitting. We will make any necessary adjustments to ensure that your dentures fit comfortably and securely.
It is important to note that dentures require some adjustment period, and it may take a few weeks for you to get used to eating and speaking with your dentures. However, most patients find that their dentures become more comfortable over time.
Who is a good candidate for partial or full dentures?
If you are missing all or most of your teeth, dentures may be a good option for you. They can be created for the entire upper or low jaw or just a portion of either jaw.
If you are considering dentures, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with our team. We will be happy to address any concerns or questions you may have and help you determine if dentures are the right tooth replacement option for you.
Benefits of Dentures
There are many benefits to wearing partial or complete dentures, including:
- Improved chewing function
- Better nutrition
- Increased confidence
- Enhanced smile
- Supports surrounding healthy teeth
Missing teeth can cause difficulty chewing and increase your risk of gum disease. Full and partial dentures can help restore proper chewing function and prevent gum disease.
In addition, dentures can improve the overall appearance of your smile. Today’s dentures look more realistic than ever before, and they can be made to match your other teeth. This can give you the confidence you need to smile, laugh, and enjoy your life to the fullest.
Caring for Dentures
Caring for your new dentures is relatively simple. Be sure to brush your dentures daily with a gentle, non-abrasive cleanser, and at night, soak your dentures in a solution designed for dentures to keep them clean and bacteria-free.
It is important to note that you should never try to adjust your dentures yourself. If you have any concerns or questions about your dentures, we will be happy to help you ensure that your dentures fit comfortably and securely. If you require denture repairs, we can typically do them in our office quickly and easily.
Dentures vs. Dental Implants: Which is Right for You?
If you are missing teeth, you may wonder if dentures or dental implants are the proper treatment. Both dentures and implants have their unique benefits.
Dentures are a more affordable treatment option for missing teeth. They can be made to match your existing teeth and can be easily removed for cleaning.
Dental implants are a more permanent solution for missing teeth, and they are surgically implanted into the jawbone and can last for years with proper care. However, they are also more expensive than dentures, and some patients may not be a good candidate for implants.
How much do partial and full dentures cost?
The cost of partial and full dentures will vary depending on the number of teeth that need to be replaced and the material used. The cost of dentures can range anywhere from $300 to $3,000.
We understand that the cost of dental care can be a concern for many patients. Therefore, we will be happy to discuss the cost of dentures with you during your consultation.
