Who Should Consider Dentures?

Did you know that about one in four adults over 65 have lost all their teeth? Dentures are a popular and effective choice for those missing teeth. They’re so realistic and reliable that you might have spoken to someone wearing them without realizing it. Wondering if dentures might be right for you?

To be a good match for dentures, you should:

  • Want to replace many or all of your teeth.
  • Not smoke or use tobacco products.
  • Have a strong jawbone (but we can assist with that!).
  • Not have problems with dry mouth.
  • Be ready to care for your dentures properly at home.
  • Keep visiting your dentist for regular check-ups, just like you would with your natural teeth.

How Should I Care for My Dentures?

Caring for your dentures involves regular cleanings and dental check-ups. Everyone, even those with perfect dentures, needs to see their dentist occasionally. We’ll check how your dentures fit and examine your gums, tongue, jaw, and the inside of your mouth during these visits. We’re not just focused on your teeth but your overall oral health.

Here’s how to care for your dentures at home:

  • Take your dentures out at night to give your mouth a break.
  • Soak your dentures in warm water, with or without a denture cleaner, overnight.
  • If your dentures have metal parts, only soak them in warm water.
  • When you’re not wearing them, keep your dentures in water to prevent warping.
  • Avoid soaking dentures in hot water.
  • With your dentures out, gently clean and massage your gums.
  • If a toothbrush is too harsh for your gums, soften it under warm water or use a clean, damp cloth wrapped around your finger.
  • For those with partial dentures, continue brushing your natural teeth as normal.

Cost of A Denture in Brownfield

In Brownfield, the price for full or partial dentures typically ranges from $900 to $3,500 or more. This wide range reflects the variety of dentures available to meet different types of patient needs. Full-mouth dentures might cost between $1,800 and $3,500, with the price climbing higher in some cases. For a complete set of implant-supported dentures, you’re looking at rough estimate of $30,000.

Factors Influencing Denture Costs

Several key factors affect how much you’ll pay for dentures:

  • The specific type of dentures you need.
  • Any dental extractions or other preparatory work required.
  • The need for X-rays.
  • The decision to opt for supportive implants.

Every patient’s needs are unique, making it crucial to consult with a dentist for an oral examination. This allows us to understand your specific situation and offer various treatment options. In any case, we’re more than happy to provide you with a more precise estimate based on your individual needs.

Before we devise a treatment plan, it’s crucial for us to learn everything about the health and look of your smile, and understand what you’d like to achieve with it. This way, we can assist you in reaching your dental goals.

Frequently Asked Questions

For gaps resulting from one to three missing teeth, dental bridges offer a restorative solution. Alternatively, dental implants can replace any number of missing teeth. Generally, dental implants involve a higher upfront cost and you must meet specific health criteria to be eligible.

Dentures can last between 5 to 10 years with proper care and maintenance. However, due to natural wear and changes in your mouth’s shape over time, you might find it necessary to be fitted for a new set eventually.

While it’s possible to sleep with your dentures in, we advise against it. It’s better to remove them at night for soaking. This practice allows you to clean your mouth, gums, and any remaining natural teeth thoroughly, and gives your gums and jaw a chance to rest.

Top dentures should create a suction effect with your gums, while bottom dentures may hover slightly above your gums but should still remain secure. Partial dentures are designed to align with your natural teeth with minimal movement. For those with implant-supported dentures, they should click into place and stay firmly in position. If you’re unsure about the fit of your dentures or experiencing discomfort, feel free to schedule an appointment with us. We can examine the fit and adjust your dentures if necessary.

Once you’ve become accustomed to your dentures, you’ll likely be able to eat a wide variety of foods. However, certain foods might be challenging for your dentures or cause irritation. Hard or sticky foods such as caramels, carrot sticks, or tough meats, as well as foods with small particles like popcorn or seeded crackers, may pose difficulties. It’s best to enjoy these foods sparingly as occasional treats.

Me and my kids absolutely love this place. The staff is so welcoming and friendly my kids enjoy them. They answer all of my questions and concerns. Help to put my mind at ease with anything I have on my mind regarding my children's dental health. We've been going to them for almost 8 years now and we wouldn't choose any place else for our dental needs.
