Dentures in West Hartford, CT

Why Are Dentures Important?

Your facial appearance and function relies heavily on the presence of your teeth. When you have missing or diseased teeth, it can adversely affect your appearance, your health, and your ability to speak clearly. Custom-made dentures could be the answer to missing or diseased teeth, and are available in options from a single-tooth denture to a full set of implants. Since teeth are so vital to your health and appearance, dentures are a good investment in your long term health.

What Options Are Available to Me?

Whether you’re looking to get new dentures in West Hartford or you need to replace a few teeth, you have numerous options. Your dentist will work with you to ensure that you receive affordable quality dentures that meet your needs and preferences.

Would a Full Set Be Best for Me?

A full set of dentures replaces all the teeth in your mouth. If you have many or all of your teeth missing, this may work well for you. In this procedure, your dentist will first take measurements and impressions to ensure that your new denture will be an accurate replication of your teeth and gums. Then any remaining teeth will be pulled, implants anchored as applicable, and you’ll receive a temporary denture. When your gums have completely healed and your new denture is ready, your dentist will install and adjust your new teeth so that they fit comfortably and work well.

Would a Partial Be Better?

If you have most of your teeth and are missing only one or a few, then a partial is an excellent option. A partial denture is similar to a bridge, except a bridge is a permanent appliance whereas a partial is clasped to adjacent teeth and must be removed and cleaned each night.

What Is a Flexible Partial Denture?

Traditional partial dentures are constructed of a rigid acrylic material and some wearers find them less comfortable than a flexible partial, which is constructed of a lightweight material that moves with your mouth. Both the partial and the clasps are made from the same material and it’s gum colored, so it blends in with your natural teeth and gums. Keep in mind, a flexible partial needs to be removed and cleaned each night.

Will an Implant-Supported Denture Work for Me?

An implant-supported denture is secured to implants and is typically used only for the lower jaw, which requires more stability than the upper jaw. An implant-supported denture will need to be removed and cleaned each night.

What’s an All-on-Four Denture?

All-on-Four dentures are a complete set of acrylic teeth that are affixed to four implants in the lower jaw. This unique dental appliance combines the convenience of a fixed denture with additional biting power and doesn’t require daily removal.

What’s the Full Procedure for Getting Dentures?

The procedure for getting dentures involves several steps and they vary according to the individual. The first step is to discuss your needs and preferences with your dentist who will recommend the most affordable quality dentures for you. He or she will then take measurements and impressions of your mouth so that your new dentures fit properly. Then, if necessary extractions will be made and implants will be anchored if needed, and you’ll receive a temporary denture while your gums heal. When your gums have healed, your new dentures will be installed and adjusted so that if fits comfortably and works well.

Are Dentures Costly?

Depending on the type of denture chosen, the material used, and the amount of prep work that needs to be done, costs will vary. Your dentist will work with you to ensure that you receive affordable quality dentures. Contact our office if you have questions about the cost for dentures. We can also answer any additional questions you may have about getting dentures in West Hartford.

What Is a Soft Denture Reline?

Traditional dentures are made from a hard acrylic substance that causes painful sore spots for some wearers. A soft reline adds a soft, pliable material that lasts for about two years.
