Custom dentures can be a great choice if you want to replace several missing teeth. Dentures can restore your smile and help you eat and speak with more confidence. Dr. Brett Cotham can create either partial or full removable dentures for residents in Rogers, AR. Full dentures replace your entire lower arch, upper arch, or both compared to partial dentures that use your remaining teeth as support. At All About Smiles, we can help you determine whether partial or full dentures fit your goals and then have your dentures made custom to look beautiful. Schedule an appointment to get more information about removable dentures.
Best Candidates for Dentures
You could be a good candidate for removable dentures if you are missing most or all of your teeth, but your gums and jawbone are still healthy. If you have natural teeth, they can either be removed if you want a full denture or you can keep them as support for a partial. At your initial consultation, Dr. Cotham will assess your oral health and explain your choices to fit your budget and needs.
What To Expect from Dentures
In some cases, Dr. Cotham will perform an extraction on any remaining teeth before impressions are taken, which will help customize your dentures. Partial dentures will be colored to blend with your remaining teeth for an attractive finish. As soon as your custom dentures are made, our team will fit them so they are secure and comfortable. We will also discuss how to care for and clean your dentures at home.
It may require time before your dentures feel natural; however, it should become easier to speak and eat normally. If the dentures feel loose, come back to All About Smiles to get your dentures refitted. You will need to clean your dentures with a toothbrush two times daily. At night or whenever you take out your dentures, they need to be soaked to prevent them from drying out. You should continue to attend cleanings and exams at All About Smiles to examine the fit and wear of your restoration and the overall health of your mouth. We will discuss when your dentures need to be replaced or repaired; however, with ideal treatment, your custom dentures can last for several years.
Insurance Coverage for Dentures
If you are using insurance, some of the expenses of your custom dentures will usually be paid for. Our team will talk to your dental insurance to understand your benefits and personal costs. At your initial consultation, we will develop your treatment so your dentures match your budget and needs. For help making your dentures affordable with or without dental insurance, All About Smiles takes several payment methods, including low-interest medical financing.
