Are you missing all of your teeth or about to have your remaining teeth extracted in preparation for dentures? If this is the case for you, cosmetic dentist in Orange City Dr. Terry Soule offers different types of dentures to fit your specific needs.
Terry Soule, DDS, offers economy dentures, custom dentures, and implant-supported dentures. Many patients are unaware that there are different options when it comes to dentures. Dr. Soule would like you to know the difference between these three types of dentures so that you can decide which option is best for you.
Economy dentures are known to be affordable, yet still provide patients that are missing all of their teeth with stability, and aesthetics. In other words, economy dentures are a simple yet effective solution to replacing your missing teeth.
To get started, we take impressions of the inside of your mouth. These impressions are then used to make molds that assist in the fabrication of your new dentures. Once completed and returned from the lab, Dr. Soule will try in your dentures to test the fit. Adjustments can be made if necessary.
The downside to economy dentures is that they simply are not the best option for each patient. Some patients can wear economy dentures with comfort and confidence, while others may struggle with these two concerns.
Custom dentures are known to be more comfortable and functional than their economy counterparts. These dentures are made specifically to fit each nook and cranny of your mouth. Because of the perfect fit, custom dentures provide even more stability when eating, which allows you to eat whatever foods you like. Also, they can be constructed with replacement teeth that match your natural ones in color, shape, and size, only better!
Custom dentures tend to fit better than the economy version for most patients, because they are crafted to specific measurements of your mouth and bite to ensure your dentures fit with ultimate comfort.
Implant Supported Dentures
These dentures are like the Cadillac of dentures. We start the process by placing mini implants into each dental arch needing replacement teeth. These implants serve as permanent anchors for your specially crafted dentures to snap onto. This means that you have ultimate support for eating, and never have to worry about your dentures slipping out of place or rubbing sore spots in your mouth. While implant-supported dentures may come with a higher price tag than the economy or custom versions, patients who wear these dentures appreciate the added benefits of a comfortable, secure set of replacement teeth.
