You can purchase affordable dentures to replace a few teeth which may be missing, or to replace all the missing teeth on an upper or lower arch in your mouth. These are dental appliances that will be custom fit to your mouth and colored to match the remaining teeth in your mouth. It usually takes some getting used to when you first have dentures installed, but any discomfort quickly fades away, and you’ll be comfortable with them within a few days. Modern dentures are generally made of hard resin, although in the past porcelain or plastic was more prevalent.
Given the fact that any material used in making your dentures will be less hard than your natural tooth enamel, some care is required to keep your dentures functional and looking good. Avoiding hard foods like nuts and ice is advisable, and performing regular dental hygiene can help keep your dentures in good working order as well. When cost is your over-riding issue with tooth replacement
, having dentures installed may be your best possible option.
There are some options now available which add to the variability of having dentures installed. You can have full or partial dentures installed, you can have denture implants to make them last much longer, and you can have snap-on dentures installed by having mini-implants fused into your jawbone. To find out what type of dentures might be most appropriate for your situation, you should discuss with your dentist. After examining your mouth, a good dentist will be able to make a determination on the most suitable type of dentures for your circumstances.
