Amazing Smiles are experienced cosmetic dentistry professionals when it comes to dental implants and dentures.
Dentures are removable substitutes for missing teeth.
They are usually made from an acrylic base, which is fitted with porcelain artificial teeth. Having missing teeth can make you feel self-conscious about your smile and make eating and speaking difficult. It also has a negative impact on your oral health, so it is vital that they be replaced.
The options for dentures is dependent on how many teeth is missing and they include: partial, full dentures and dental implants on hybrid dentures.
Partial Dentures are constructed from either acrylic/plastic, cobalt chrome and new flexible plastic called valplast. Partial denture are used when there are a few missing teeth in the jaw.
Full Dentures can be either be for the upper or lower jaw. The gold standard for lower dentures these days is to have 2 implants in the canine region to hold the denture in place. This is an advantage as it will hold the jaw bone and stops the bone from shrinking. Often old age patient that have ill fitting dentures will greatly improve their chewing and speech if this procedure is done. At Amazing Smiles the dentist can do 2 lower implants and a new lower denture for $6,000. This will include all parts and components.
Hybrid Implants is the best “Royals Royce ” treatment where the denture is held securely by more than 2 implants. Often it will be 4 or more implants holding the denture. These implants can be staged for later when the patient can afford a fixed porcelain bridge.
