Partial Dentures Procedures

Partial Denture and Complete Denture Procedures  April 25, 2015 – 10:43 pm

A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile.

There are two types of dentures - complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A Partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting.

A Complete denture may be either “conventional” or “immediate.” A conventional type is made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed. Immediate dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after the teeth are removed, thus preventing the patient from having to be without teeth during the healing process.

Dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years.

Reasons for dentures:

  • Complete Denture - Loss of all teeth in an arch
  • Partial Denture - Loss of several teeth in an arch
  • Enhancing smile and facial tissues
  • Improving chewing, speech, and digestion

What does getting dentures involve?

Highly accurate impressions (molds) and measurements are taken and used to create your custom denture.

What's considered high quality Dentures?

My 68 year old mother needs dentures - I think partial dentures 'cause she needs four surgical extractions, and she has three missing teeth.
She's planning on having the procedures - extractions & dentures - done at a dental school. I'm worried about the quality of dentures and whether most are made overseas.
A neighborhood dentist quoted her $9100 for the entire procedure. Is that the going rate in NYC (Brooklyn)?

Not looking for a freebie!

I was simply asking for opinions about implants and/or a crown & bridge. I know that I am covered to get partial dentures, but wanted to weigh other options and was hoping someone here had gone thru the same thing. Alot of dentists in my area will put you on a monthly payment plan for expensive procedures. I will continue to go the clinic for free care for fillings, cleanings, etc. I pay for healthcare thru the state of MA which makes me eligible for free dental care as my employer does not provide it.
