Our team of dentists in Easton, Reading, West Chester, and beyond have helped thousands of patients find fuller smiles with dentures. However, just as no smile is the same, no pair of dentures are the same. Some replace all of your teeth and others only replace a few. Some even use dental implants to keep them from slipping or sliding. If you’re looking for dentures, take some time to learn about the different types of dentures we have available at Affordable Dental Solutions.
Removable dentures are just as their name suggests: they can easily be removed by the patient. This makes them simpler to clean and more hygienic. Meanwhile, new technology has made it possible for dentures to fit more snugly and look more natural compared to the dentures of years past.
There are two types of standard removable dentures offered by our Lehigh Valley and Berks County dentists:
- Full Dentures For patients who may be missing all or most of their teeth along their dental arch, full dentures are the best solution for them. The top set covers the roof of your mouth, while the bottom set is held in place by your cheek and tongue muscles. At Affordable Dental Solutions, full dentures cost only $650 per arch.
- Partial Dentures Partial dentures are an ideal solution for patients who may only be missing a handful of teeth. They feature one or more prosthetic teeth attached to a plate. Partial dentures cost only $750 per arch.
Implant-retained dentures provide stability to existing dentures. Using two or four implants on the lower arch and four to six implants on the upper arch, they can snap into place without the need for sticky adhesive.
The process for implant-retained dentures takes slightly longer than the process would for regular dentures. After the implants are placed, patients are given four months to heal before the dentures are modified and can be snapped into place.
Like full and partial dentures, implant-retained dentures can and should be removed so that they can be properly cleaned.
At Affordable Dental Solutions, implant-retained dentures cost only $2,999 when two dental implants are attached to your existing lower denture.
If you’re missing teeth, there’s no shortage of treatments available. Depending on your jawbone health and your number of missing teeth, you may be a better candidate for one procedure over another. This is why it is important for you to schedule a consultation with our team of dentists! By doing so, you can learn more about which treatment option is best for you and your smile.
