Look And Feel Like Yourself

What are Dentures?

Dentures are removable dental appliances designed to replace missing teeth as well as restore functionality and aesthetics. They are custom-made to fit each patient's mouth and can be specially made to replace a few missing teeth in the case of partial dentures or a full set of teeth with complete dentures.

Modern dentures are made from advanced materials such as acrylic resin, porcelain, and flexible polymers, which offer a natural appearance and improved comfort compared to dentures made in the past.

Which Fits Your Needs?

Dentures vs Dental Implants

Both dentures and dental implants are common solutions for replacing missing teeth, but there are many differences between the methods. Dentures are a non-surgical solution involving the creation and fitting of custom-made removable prosthetics, typically completed over a few weeks. While initially less expensive, they may need replacement every five to ten years due to wear along with changes in the jaw.

In contrast, dental implants require a surgical procedure where titanium posts are inserted into the jawbone, providing a permanent and secure base for artificial tooth caps. This process takes several months, allowing for bone fusion, and offers comfort and functionality. Implants require sufficient bone density and have a higher initial cost.

Candidates for Dentures

At our practice in Port St. Lucie dentures candidates typically want to address concerns like restoring chewing and speaking functions, improving facial aesthetics, and supporting facial structures to prevent sagging. They are usually seeking a cost-effective solution compared to other tooth replacement methods. Certain conditions, such as active oral infections, allergies to denture materials, compromised immune systems, and significant bone loss, may disqualify some patients or require special interventions.

An Expert Evaluation

Consultation and Preparation

A thorough dental evaluation is essential to determine the best treatment plan and ensure that dentures are the appropriate solution for each individual's needs. At your consultation, we will perform an examination, discuss the goals for treatment, and decide if you are an ideal candidate for dentures. Your dental team will provide you with detailed information on any necessary preparation that is required prior to receiving dentures.

On The Path To A Renewed Smile

The Dentures Procedure

The entire denture process typically takes about one to three months, and there are multiple steps. After your initial consultation, where x-rays are taken and a treatment plan is created:

  • Your dentist will take detailed impressions and measurements of your mouth, crucial for creating dentures that fit comfortably and function properly.
  • Next, based on the impressions, a model of the dentures is created. You will try on this model during a fitting appointment to check for fit and comfort. Any necessary adjustments are made to ensure the final dentures will fit perfectly.
  • After confirming the fit with the preliminary model, the final dentures are fabricated in a dental laboratory. Advanced materials like acrylic resin, porcelain, or flexible polymers are used to create dentures that look and feel like natural teeth.
  • Once the final dentures are ready, you will have another fitting appointment, and any minor adjustments will be made to ensure an optimal fit.
  • After wearing the dentures for a month or two, a few follow-up appointments may be scheduled to monitor your comfort with the dentures.

A Stunning New Smile Is Yours
