What are dentures?

Dentures are a tooth replacement option that allow you to replace some or all of your teeth. They are always custom-made for you to restore your smile, fit your bite, and function like natural teeth.

Why you should choose dentures

If you’re missing teeth, the choice to replace them isn’t just a cosmetic concern. There are real health benefits to replacing teeth with dentures. Not only will it restore the appearance and function of your smile, but it will also help preserve the shape of your face.

Types of dentures offered at Austin Prosthodontics

At Austin Prosthodontics, we are proud to offer a few different types of dentures to make sure you get the smile and function that you really need.

Full dentures

Full dentures are exactly what they sound like: they replace a full arch, or all the teeth on either your top or bottom jaw. If you’re missing all of your teeth, full or complete dentures are a great option to get your smile and self-confidence back.

Partial dentures

Unlike full dentures, partial dentures replace some of your teeth. If you have natural teeth that you can save and keep, then partial dentures are probably perfect for you.

What to expect while getting dentures

Prior to your appointment, you should prepare yourself for the process of getting dentures. This can be a very emotional and sometimes frustrating period for a lot of patients, particularly if you need to have more teeth removed before you can get your dentures.

Depending on your treatment plan, you may need to have more teeth removed to prepare yourself for your new dentures. Dr. Carmona will assess your situation and develop a custom treatment plan to get you back to living life the way you want to as soon as possible.

Dr. Carmona will make your custom dentures in the lab, meaning that it will take a few weeks to get your custom dentures. Once your dentures are ready, you will come back to our office to receive them and make sure they work and fit properly.

How to care for your new dentures

Protecting your investment is vital to making sure they last as long as possible. You should wash and soak your dentures on a daily basis to make sure they don’t lose their shape or dry out. Some other things you should do to protect your dentures are:

  •         Rinse your dentures after every meal
  •         Brush your dentures at least once per day
  •         Always clean your mouth after removing your dentures
  •         Soak your dentures overnight

We want to make sure you get the most life out of your dentures as possible. If you have any questions about caring for your new dentures, don’t hesitate to call our office.

Getting used to your new dentures

Getting used to your new dentures can be tricky for the first little while. However, once you get used to them, you’ll be back to living your life the way you want to.

Tips for getting used to your new dentures:

  •         Practice speaking in the mirror and to yourself
  •         Read aloud
  •         Start with soft foods
  •         Experiment with adhesives until you find one you really like
  •         Follow your instructions and call us if you have any questions

You may find that you are a little bit uncomfortable at first. This is normal. However, if you feel a great deal of prolonged discomfort, you may need your dentures adjusted.

You don’t have to settle for an uncomfortable smile. Always bring up any discomfort you are experiencing with Dr. Carmona. We take as much pride in your smile as you do.

How long do dentures last?

At Austin Prosthodontics, we pride ourselves on our superior craftsmanship and materials. Your dentures should last you between 5-8 years with proper care.

How much do dentures cost?

Dentures can cost anywhere between $1300 – $3200 depending on the treatment plan you and Dr. Carmona choose. Fortunately, most dental insurances do cover at least some of the cost of dentures. For the remainder of the cost, or if you don’t have coverage for dentures, we are proud to partner with Lending Club Patient Solutions to offer affordable payment plans that fit within your budget.

How does dentures compare to other tooth-replacement options?

When it comes to comparing tooth replacement options, there really isn’t one option that is objectively superior to the rest. Instead, every option has its merits, and the best option for you may not be the best option for someone else.  Most dental insurance plans do cover some of the cost of dentures, which is not always true for other tooth replacement options, making them a generally more cost-effective treatment for many people.

There are some instances in which dentures may be your only option. For instance, if you do not have the bone structure to support dental implants, then dentures are the best choice for you.

Dental bridges are another tooth replacement option that you can ask Dr. Carmona about in lieu of dentures.

At the end of the day, how dentures compare to other treatment options depends on what you want and what you need. Talk to Dr. Carmona at Austin Prosthodontics about your options and which is best for you.
