Dentures (also known as false teeth) are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, and are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable (removable partial denture or complete denture). However, there are many denture designs, some which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants (fixed prosthodontics). There are two main categories of dentures, the distinction being whether they are used to replace missing teeth on the mandibular arch or on the maxillary arch. There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. Your dentist will help you choose the type of denture that's best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced and the cost involved.
• Medium dentures cost between $ 30 -0$ 2300 per plate. These types of prostheses are custom made and usually have a 4 or 6 year warranty
• A more premium prosthesis plate can cost $ 200- $4000 or more. Prostheses within this price range are custom-made, tailored to the size and shape of the jawbone and patient's gums, made of high quality materials that are as durable as possible with natural gums and teeth. They are guaranteed that they will not be full or cracked between the ages of5 to 10 years. This will usually be the cost for subsequent checks.
• The price of removable partial dentures starts at $ 300 and may be used in the manufacture of gold instead of plastic or other metals for as low as $ 200- $ 5000. Traditional partial dentures that are rigid have a metal frame to hold the dentures in place, which usually have a metal clamp that is visible; flexible partial dentures have a soft but durable plastic base that fits the shape The gums are, even if they move over time.
These types of dentures stay firmly in place, attaching around the remaining teeth and gums to hold them in place.
However, flexible prostheses require a real tooth or tooth to function well,
Therefore, they are not available in the form of complete teeth and are only partial (a number of teeth)
• The approximate cost of a flexible removable partial denture without the need for teeth extraction or other procedures is $ 2,300. In some centers this fee will also include subsequent checks
• If a tooth is to be extracted before implantation, it costs $ 25- $ 450 for each tooth extraction, and $ 50- $ 650 for each tooth extraction. Depending on the number of teeth that need to be extracted, the patient may pay $ 2,400 or more until a full tooth is placed on the gums.
Depending on the number and type (mini-implants are cheaper) of dental implants that support removable dentures, implanting two to six implants can cost up to $ 3000 or more depending on the materials used in the manufacture of dentures (in some cases An old patient implant plate can be used for new implants) and other processes may affect it.
In the past, the artificial teeth that make up dentures were made out of porcelain or plastic, but more modern dentures are generally made out of a hard resin. The materials used to make denture teeth are known to be more fragile than natural teeth and can easily chip or crack if dropped or otherwise uncared for. This material also wears down much quicker than natural teeth and thus must be replaced with a new set of dentures every five years or so.
Dentures not only improve the appearance of a smile that has multiple missing teeth, but they also keep the structure of the mouth sound by supporting the structures around the cheeks and lips. Dentures also make it possible to eat foods that require chewing, making it possible to keep your diet the same and ensure that you are properly nourished. Lastly, dentures are a viable solution to replace teeth that are causing serious pain and oral health issues, such as those with rotted roots or severe damage. Having dentures fitted means that troublesome teeth are eliminated and replaced with a strong and beautiful alternative.
Eating will take a little practice. Start with soft foods cut into small pieces. Chew slowly, using both sides of your mouth at the same time to stop the denture moving. As you become more used to your denture, add other foods until you get back to your normal healthy diet.
Pronouncing certain words may take practice. Reading out loud and repeating difficult words will help.
If you find that your dentures occasionally slip when you laugh, cough or smile, reposition them by gently biting down and swallowing. If this happens a lot, see your dentist.
