Who Needs Dentures?
If you have a substantial number of missing teeth or your teeth aren’t in good condition, then you may be an excellent candidate for a new denture set. Teeth are vital to your overall health and when your teeth are in poor shape or missing, your health may suffer. In addition to providing structural support for your jaw, teeth aid in the digestive process and can enhance your self-confidence. Dentures that are properly maintained can last for decades, so they’re a sound financial investment in your health.
What Styles Are Available?
Modern dentures are available in many styles with several options within each style. Your dentist will conduct a comprehensive examination and then help you decide which option will best fit your needs and preferences.
Do I Need a Full Denture Set?
The answer to this question depends on the condition of your existing teeth and your personal preferences. A full denture set will replace all the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws. Before getting the dentures, measurements and impressions of your teeth and gums will be taken, existing teeth will be extracted, implants will be installed as applicable, and then you’ll be given a temporary denture. When your gums have healed completely, your new teeth will be installed and adjusted so that they are as comfortable and functional as possible.
A full denture set can be fixed or removable. A fixed denture will be anchored to the implants that were placed. A removable denture, on the other hand, will sit on top of your gums and will need to be removed and cleaned nightly.
Would a Partial Work Better for Me?
If you have most of your teeth and they’re healthy, then a partial denture might work well for you. A partial allows you to keep your healthy teeth but replace those that are missing. A partial is similar to a bridge except a partial is removable while a bridge is permanently implanted. You’ll need to remove a partial each night and clean it.
What Are Flexible Partial Dentures?
A flexible partial denture is made of a flexible material that can bend as your mouth moves. Both the denture and its clasps are gum colored so they appear more like the rest of your teeth. A flexible partial denture also needs to be removed and cleaned each night.
What Are Implant-Supported Dentures?
An implant-supported denture is a removable appliance that is held in place by implants. Usually, it’s used only for the lower jaw and provides additional lower-jaw stability. As with other removable denture sets, it will need to be removed and cleaned every night.
How Do I Get New Dentures?
The procedure for getting new dentures in Marietta varies by the individual since each patient’s needs are unique. Usually, your dentist will take impressions and measurements so that your new dentures are an accurate replication of your bite. Diseased teeth may be extracted and implants installed if you’ve chosen an implant supported denture. You’ll then be supplied with a temporary denture set.
When your new dentures are ready, your dentist will adjust them so that they fit comfortably and function well.
How Much Do New Dentures Cost?

Why Is a Soft Reline Necessary?
A traditional denture set is constructed of a hard acrylic substance that some wearers find to be uncomfortable. A soft denture reline uses a soft, pliable material to reline the denture so that the wearer is more comfortable. It lasts for about two years.
