What Are Dentures?
Dentures are natural-looking, removable replacement teeth. At Charpentier Family Dentistry, we offer both full dentures and partial dentures.
Full dentures are used when a patient’s natural teeth have all been removed. Once the gum tissue has healed, conventional full dentures are secured in place by hugging the contour of your jaw - creating a seal against your gums. They are removable for easy care and are adjusted to uniquely fit each patient.
If you aren’t missing all of your teeth, a partial denture can be used as an alternative to a bridge or multiple dental implants. These removable partial dentures clasp into place, supported by your existing teeth. This type of denture is generally considered as a removable alternative to a dental bridge or dental implants.
How Do I Take Care Of My Dentures?
Dentures, just like natural teeth, require daily care in order to stay clean and keep dangerous bacteria from growing on them. It’s important to keep your dentures clean in order to keep your smile healthy!
Just like your teeth, plaque and tartar can build up on your dentures. It’s important to brush them daily and rinse them after each meal.
How Much Do Dentures Cost?
The simple answer to the cost of dentures is this: it varies. Just like any surgery or medical procedure, there are a variety of factors that can influence how much dentures cost. We can provide you an accurate estimate after a consultation with our in-house team of denture experts at our New Iberia dental office.
Considerations the can influence the cost of your dentures include:
- The type of dentures you need. Full dentures, partial dentures, fixed dentures and dentures retained by dental implants all have different costs.
- The health of your mouth. Whether you will need to have more teeth removed or other dental services performed to make sure your mouth is healthy enough to support your dentures
- Dental insurance. Some insurances cover only parts of denture treatment, or have a waiting period for eligibility.
If you're concerned about the cost of dentures, call our New Iberia dental practice to schedule a consultation with Dr. Charpentier or Dr. Groth. We'll take the time to determine whether you're a good candidate for dentures, and discuss all of your financial options with you.
