Dentures in New Haven, CT

Lost teeth can occur due to several reasons, including tooth decay, gum disease, and the aging process. When missing teeth are making it difficult to enjoy your favorite activities, you may wonder where you can find affordable quality dentures. Fortunately, we offer several denture varieties at our dental office.

What Is the Complete Procedure for Getting Dentures?

In most cases, getting new dentures in New Haven takes place over multiple steps. During your first visit, the dentist may take measurements or impressions of your teeth and bite. These are used as the template for creating your appliance. Some patients may require preparatory treatment, such as tooth extractions. Those who are receiving implant-supported dentures will receive the implants prior to the final denture fitting. When your mouth has fully recovered from any preliminary care, your final denture will be fitted and adjusted.

What Are the Different Types of Dentures Available for Patients?

Our skilled dentists provide multiple styles of affordable quality dentures to meet your needs. Call us now to find out which type of denture is best for you.

Full and Partial Dentures

A full denture is an effective replacement for a complete row of missing or damaged teeth. These durable appliances are made to look and function just like your natural teeth. A traditional full denture sits on top of the gum line, while an implant-supported denture is fixed into place using dental implants. When you come in for your consultation, your dentist will help you decide which type of full denture is right for you.

Partial dentures can be an effective choice for those who are only missing a few teeth in certain areas of the mouth. Partials function similarly to a bridge and involve clasps on either side of the appliance. They can be removed very easily for nightly cleanings.

Flexible Partial Denture

When you’re looking for a discreet way to replace missing teeth, flexible partials can be an excellent solution. These appliances are created using pliable, lightweight materials that flex as your mouth moves. They also feature gum-colored clasps, making them virtually invisible when worn.

Implant-Supported Denture

An implant-supported denture provides the wearer with a secure hold without the use of sticky adhesives. Instead of using a bonding cream or strip, these dentures are held in place using dental implants. Implant-supported appliances are typically recommended as lower dentures; upper dentures usually don’t need the added stability.

How Much Does Getting Dentures Cost?

Since denture treatment is fully customized, the cost of service will vary. Typically, the condition of your teeth, the variety of denture that is chosen, and the materials required to make the denture will determine your final cost. Please give our office a call if you have questions about denture cost or financing.

Why Would a Dental Patient Require a Denture?

If you have several missing teeth, our high-quality dentures in New Haven can help you achieve a brilliant smile. A denture is an appliance that looks and functions like natural teeth. It typically consists of a row of artificial teeth and surrounding tissue attached to implants or a metal frame. Wearing a denture can significantly improve your speech, chewing ability, and jaw structure.

Can I Get a Soft Reline for Dentures?

Don’t let sore spots caused by denture wear affect your daily activities – ask us now about our soft denture reline services. During this affordable treatment, the dentist resurfaces your appliance with a pliable, comfortable material. The new lining should remain pliable for up to 2 years.

Are All-on-Four Dentures Right for Me?

A fresh approach to denture treatment, All-on-Four dentures offer significant biting strength and a stable feel. When you receive an All-on-Four denture, the dentist affixes a complete arch of pontic teeth to four dental implants surgically placed in the lower jaw. To find out whether an All-on-Four denture procedure is right for you, please contact our office.
