Frequently Asked Questions About Dentures
The goal of the first appointment is to ensure that the gums and soft tissue are healthy and ready to receive the new teeth. To do so, we will conduct a thorough examination of the patient, including X-rays. X-rays are used to ensure that the underlying bones are not causing any problems. If you are not suitable for a denture, your dentist might offer another alternative to dentures like a dental implant. You can choose among the alternatives to dentures that will work best for you.
If you choose to get removable dentures, your dentist will start eliminating redundant flabby tissue for a better fitting denture or contouring the bone to accommodate a tighter fit. You might also need a temporary denture for proper fitting. We will also begin the denture-making procedure during this session by creating a cast or mould of both the top and lower gums.
We prefer to acquire these without the teeth so that the laboratory can create a flawless impression of the gums on which to base the new dentures. Finally, we’ll go over critical details with the new patient, including the new teeth’ size, shape, and tint.
Cleaning of dentures requires extra clean, stain-free, and proper care. Follow these steps to maintain your clean denture.
- At least once a day, brush your dentures. Please take off your dentures every day and gently clean them. Soak and clean your dentures with a soft denture brush and nonabrasive denture cleanser to remove food, plaque, and other deposits.
- Soak your dentures for at least one night. Most types of dentures must be kept wet to maintain their shape. Immerse the dentures in a cleaning solution.
- Once you’ve finished eating, remove your dentures and rinse them. Run water over your dentures to remove food residue and any loose particles from time to time.
- Handle your dentures with care. When cleaning, avoid bending or damaging the plastic or clasps.
- Floss your teeth after removing your dentures. Brush your natural teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush and use gauze or a soft toothbrush to clean your tongue, cheeks, and roof of your mouth. Doing this can also avoid bad breath.
- Eat soft foods. Be gentle to your teeth to maintain dental care and avoid tooth loss.
It makes no difference whether you have false teeth or not. Your gums are prone to bacteria if you don’t maintain good oral health.
It is not true that using a removable denture alone will increase the risk of developing periodontal disease. However, if dentures are not maintained properly, they can become a breeding ground for harmful plaque and bacteria, both of which increase the likelihood of developing gum disease over time.
At first, learning to speak or normally eat while wearing them may even seem awkward. It’s natural to experience some sore spots as you adjust, but this won’t continue forever. Most people take four weeks (or roughly a month) to acclimate to their new dentures and feel like real teeth. Those with more extensive dental work will need more time to heal and adjust to their new dentures.
The price of dentures
The cost of a denture varies based on the type of denture and the material from which it is produced. Complete dentures are more expensive than partial dentures, and dentures that are chrome-plated are more expensive than acrylic ones. The estimated cost of complete upper and lower dentures is around $2538–$3500. Upper dentures will cost around $1393 – $2200.
Most dentures are covered by dental insurance. It’s considered a major procedure, and it’s usually covered for half the cost, with you covering the rest. Dentures should be covered at least in part by your policy because they are considered a medically necessary device in most cases. You may incur additional expenses as a result of the specific procedures that you require before and after receiving your dentures.
To be sure, contact your insurance provider because some coverage plans are different from each other.
