Dentures in Scottsdale, AZ
Are you looking for comfortable and affordable teeth replacement options, dentures may be right for you. Whether you are missing a few teeth or need a full mouth denture replacement, Dr. Sheth can work with you to develop a treatment plan that can improve your bite, restore your natural-looking smile, and meet your health and budgetary needs.
What Types of Dentures Are There?
There are two major categories of dentures – those that replace all of your teeth and those that replace a section of your teeth. Dentures that replace all of your teeth are called complete dentures, and they adhere directly to your gums on the jawbone. By attaching them to your jaw, dental implants can stabilize complete dentures.
Dentures that replace some but not all of your teeth are known as partial dentures or “partials.” Partial dentures attach to the surrounding teeth that remain or can also be held in place by dental implants.
How Much Do Dentures Cost?
The cost of dentures varies widely based on many factors, including your treatment’s complexity and the time required to manufacture your dentures. The very best way to receive an accurate quote for dentures is to visit our Scottsdale, AZ dental office today.
Can I Normally Eat with Dentures?
Upon first being fitting for your dentures, you may notice difficulty eating hard, incredibly crunchy foods. This feeling should subside over time as you adjust to the feel and fit of your dentures. However, especially hard or sticky foods may always be tricky to eat while wearing your dentures. Using extra denture adhesive on days that you know you may want to eat these foods could help. You should never chew gum while wearing dentures, as any brand of gum can get caught in between your dentures’ spaces and could also discolor the enamel.
Do Dentures Hurt?
When your new dentures are first fitted, it’s normal to experience some irritation and discomfort. This feeling should fade over time as you grow accustomed to the fit and feel of your dentures. If you require tooth extractions before being fitted for your dentures, this may also cause pain and discomfort for several weeks following your procedure. “Dentures in a day,” as they are called, can be fitted the same day as your tooth extractions. This saves time in your process but can lead to longer recovery times and healing of your mouth and gum tissues. If you experience prolonged discomfort or pain with your dentures, our Scottsdale, AZ dental practice can adjust your dentures over time to ensure the best, most comfortable fit possible.
