The cost of dentures in West Palm Beach
If you’ve recently lost a tooth, or multiple teeth, you know that it can do more than change the way you chew your food. It can change the way you speak, it can alter the way you smile, or worse, it can make you not want to smile at all. Feeling uncomfortable or self-conscious can cause serious damage to your self-esteem. Additionally, if the tooth is not replaced, the surrounding teeth can shift, and your face can lose necessary support.
If you have lost a tooth, regardless of whether it was lost due to decay, gum disease, or trauma, you’re probably evaluating solutions such as dental implants, dentures, or bridges and crowns.
Each option has their own advantages and disadvantages. However, when cost is a concern, many patients turn to dentures, as they are usually the less costly option. Patients who are considering dentures have various choices – partial or full dentures and removable or permanently placed dentures.
Choosing between full and partial dentures will depend on the number of teeth that need to be replaced. If the patient only has one tooth or a couple of teeth to replace, the partial denture is the right choice. However, if an entire set of top or bottom teeth are missing, patients will require a full denture. Removable dentures have the advantage of being able to be removed for cleaning; however, permanent dentures often feel the most secure.
Regardless of which type of denture you opt for, it’s important to mention that denture technology has changed a great deal over the last few years. The dentures that are given to patients today aren’t like those that you remember your grandparents using. Instead, they look much more like natural teeth, and provide patients with greater comfort and security. Patients using dentures today have more confidence eating and speaking than those with dentures many years ago. In fact, most people are not able to tell that a person’s dentures are actually replacement teeth.
