Custom dentures can be a great choice if you want to replace several or all of your teeth. Dentures can restore your smile and allow you eat and speak with more ease and confidence. Board-certified dentist Dr. Matthew Wolfe can create either partial or full removable dentures for residents in Rochester Hills, MI. Full dentures replace your entire lower arch, upper arch, or both compared to partial dentures that use your remaining teeth as support. At Signature Dentistry of Rochester, we can help you determine whether partial or full dentures fit your dental situation and eventual goals. Then we will have your dentures custom-crafted to beautifully suit your mouth. Make an appointment with Dr. Wolfe to get more information about removable dentures.
If you are missing most or all of your teeth while still possessing a healthy jawbone and gums, then you could be a good candidate for removable dentures. Additionally, you could be a candidate for dentures if you have many loose, shifting, or rotting teeth and if your self-esteem is severely affected by the state and condition of your teeth. If you still have natural teeth that are not significantly damaged, infected, or decayed, they can either be removed (in the case that you want a full denture) or you can keep them as support for a partial denture (in the case that you would like to keep your remaining natural teeth). At your initial consultation with Dr. Wolfe, he will assess your oral health and discuss several options to fit your needs and budget.
What To Expect
In some cases, Dr. Wolfe will perform an extraction on any remaining teeth before impressions are taken, depending on the condition of the remaining teeth. These impressions will help to customize your dentures to effortlessly suit your smile. If you are receiving partial dentures, then they will be colored to blend with your remaining teeth for an attractive finish. As soon as your custom dentures are created, Dr. Wolfe will fit them so they are secure and comfortable. He will also discuss with you how to best effectively clean and care for your dentures.
It may take some time before your dentures feel natural. However, with time, it will become easier to speak and eat normally. If the dentures feel loose, come back to Signature Dentistry of Rochester to get your dentures refitted. You will need to clean your dentures with a toothbrush two times daily. During the night, or whenever you take out your dentures, they must be soaked to prevent them from drying out. You should continue to attend your bi-annual cleanings and yearly examinations at Signature Dentistry of Rochester so that Dr. Wolfe can monitor the fit and wear of your restoration and keep track of the overall health of your mouth. He will discuss with you when your dentures need to be replaced or repaired. With ideal treatment, however, your custom dentures have the potential to last for several years.
If you are using insurance, some of the expenses of your custom dentures will usually be paid for. We will talk to your dental insurance provider to understand your benefits and personal costs. At your initial consultation with Dr. Wolfe, he will develop your treatment so that your dentures will effectively match your budget and needs. For help making your dentures affordable with or without dental insurance, Signature Dentistry of Rochester accepts several payment methods, including low-interest medical financing.
Gain back your confidence to eat, speak, and live normally with the stability custom denture restorations can bring to your life.
