The Best Service for Dentures in Waukesha WI
While having dentures can seem intimidating at first, it will help with your speech, eating habits, appearance and oral health. Dentures can be needed for a variety or reasons, including aging, accidents, or genetic conditions. Dentures fitted at Tanty Family Dental will restore your natural smile and feel natural. Dr. Kevin Tanty or Dr. Cindy Eidenbach will use an intraoral camera to measure your mouth to create an accurate model of your teeth and gums, ensuring your dentures fit perfectly without any discomfort.
Getting dentures fitted
When you decide to get dentures, your dentist will first examine your mouth and dental health. If there are any teeth with severe decay, they will be removed prior to installing your new dentures. Next, your dentist will make a mold of your mouth and take measurements. These measurements will be sent to a lab to be used while building your new dentures. Finally, your dentist will install your dentures and guide you through care and maintenance.
How much do dentures cost in Wisconsin?
Dentures are a more affordable option compared to other options like dental implants or bridges while still presenting a clean, healthy-looking smile. On average, dentures cost:
- $300 to $500 for a single plate, or
- $600 to $1,000 for upper and lower dentures
Partial vs complete dentures
There are actually two different types of dentures: partial dentures and complete dentures. Partial dentures are used for patients who need to replace some missing teeth, but not all of them. Partial dentures can be a fantastic alternative to dental implants because of the lower cost and comparatively easier recovery. Complete dentures are used to replace all of your teeth. Both types of dentures are custom-fitted to your mouth and will look and function just like the real thing.
Dentures daily maintenance
Dentures require a greater amount of daily care compared to dental implants. Dentures should not be worn at night, and instead should soak in water or a cleaning solution. Dentures must be cleaned at least once daily as well as after meals. Dentures stay in place with adhesives that may need to be brushed from the gums during cleaning. Because your bite changes over time, dentures may eventually need to be refitted.
