Dentures and Partials in Annapolis, MD

Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. They are made out of an acrylic resin and may, at times, incorporate porcelain or metal for additional structural support. There are two main types of dentures: complete and partial dentures.

Both types of dentures are finely crafted, custom-fitted, and designed to restore a natural-looking smile. Dentures offer many benefits for patients with missing teeth aside from cosmetic improvements. They help strengthen muscles controlling your facial expressions and improve speech problems caused by missing teeth.

Dentures may require that some teeth be extracted to improve their fit and functionality. We give extra consideration when determining if this option is right for you.

Types of Dentures

Complete Dentures – Complete dentures are replacements for all of your teeth, upper and lower. Their comfort depends on muscle, bones, tongue, and saliva. Patients begin wearing conventional dentures after healing of the gums, if teeth were extracted first.

Immediate Dentures – Immediate Dentures are placed at the same time that teeth are extracted so at no time are you without teeth. The dentures may require additional adjustments after the healing process. It can take months for your bone and tissue to stabilize after tooth extractions.

All-on-Four – “All on 4” and “Teeth in a Day” are names for a type of implant-secured denture. Our dentist can plan the placement of dental implants to secure a denture in place. These type of dentures are only removable by the dentist and offer greater improvement in long term comfort and oral health compared to other types of dentures. Implant dentures aren’t for everyone, we can help you decide which is best during a visit to our Annapolis dental office.

Upper Dentures – Upper Dentures tend to be a bit easier to adjust to. These are made of the same materials as a Complete Denture, but are designed to provide you with upper teeth only.

Over Dentures – Over Dentures are a type of conventional denture similar to Complete Dentures. The difference is that not all teeth are extracted and they use one or more natural teeth for their support. This type provides greater stabilization during chewing. Over Dentures cost more and typically require more preparation dental appointments until the procedure is fully complete.

Partial Dentures – Designed to correct the gaps in your smile when only some of your teeth are missing. Metal attachments anchor the dentures to your natural teeth. Partial Dentures maintain tooth alignment by preventing your remaining teeth from shifting. Partial Dentures can also help prevent your loss of more teeth due to decay or gum disease.

Dentures and Partials FAQs

How long should you wait to get dentures after you get teeth pulled?

It’s possible 6-8 weeks after extraction. This allows enough time for your mouth to heal. Your dentist will determine if you’re ready to be fitted for dentures.

Do dentures have to be removed at night?

You can wear your dentures at night, but it’s preferred that they’re removed. Removing your dentures gives your gums a chance to relax from denture pressure during the day.

Should I get snap-in dentures instead?

Snap-in dentures can be more stable than conventional dentures and are made to be removable daily. They are less likely to become loose while speaking and can improve chewing ability.

How much are dentures?

The cost of dentures depends on the type of denture you choose and how many teeth require replacement. Traditional removable dentures are less expensive than implant dentures. However, implants ensure that dentures last longer and provide better bite function. We will review your options with you to determine the cost of your denture treatment.

What are the most natural-looking dentures?

Implant-secured dentures provide the most natural-looking type of dentures. Dental implants use durable, high-quality materials to restore rows and arches of missing teeth. Implant dentures use natural-looking false teeth that match the shape, size, and color of teeth.

Why do dentures hurt?

Dentures hurt when they do not fit correctly. You may have an ill-fitting denture if you experience your restoration irritating or rubbing the gums. Other signs of poorly fitted dentures include gum sores and gum inflammation. You may also experience discomfort right after you receive new dentures. However, this will fade as you get accustomed to your restoration.
