Dentures and Partials Pennington NJ
Losing your teeth creates not just physical difficulty, but emotional difficulty. Whether you are facing the prospect of dentures or need services for existing dentures, Family & Spa Dentistry offers expert care and treatment.
We have found that dentures and partial dentures improve a patient’s quality of life by restoring confidence, chewing function and oral health. There are several types of dentures; your dentist will help you decide which choice is right for you.
Types of Dentures
Full dentures replace all of the upper or lower teeth. Dentures can either be fixed or removable. Commonly known as implant dentures, fixed dentures are anchored by dental implants. Our implant dentist may place as few as four dental implants to secure the denture, greatly increasing the success rate and satisfaction of the denture. In some cases, we may be able to incorporate your existing denture into a new implant denture.
Benefits of Implant Dentures
- Better retention, no chance of slippage
- Improved health of bone and gums
- Ability to eat without restrictions
- No adhesives needed
- More natural look and feel
Many patients choosing implant dentures will receive immediate dentures. The implant dentist will coordinate the placement of as few as four dental implants to anchor the denture. The denture will help the dental implants to heal by acting as a splint.
Where full dentures replace the entire lower or upper set of teeth, partial dentures are used to replace several missing teeth. Like full dentures, they can either be fixed or removable. Partial dentures are similar to a dental bridge. If the partial denture is fixed, it is either secured in place using dental crowns or dental implants.
How much do dentures cost?
The cost of dentures depends on your specific condition, the type of dentures you choose and the materials we use. We will review the denture cost along with any other details prior to your treatment. If you have dental insurance, we will submit claims on your behalf. For treatment not covered by insurance, we offer several flexible payment options to make dentures affordable.
