Affordable dentures are available in a range of products, including partial dentures and permanent dentures. Flexible dentures are nearly unbreakable. You can get full or flexible partial dentures. Permanent, snap-in dentures are put in place surgically. These implant dentures are affordable in the long run because they last a lifetime. And if you ever need denture repair, your dentist located in Brooklyn, NY Dr. Dekhtyar of Broadway Family Dentistry is the denture specialist for you!
Wear and tear, accidents, injury, and disease — all of these things compromise your teeth. Proper dental care and good oral habits often can save your teeth, but sometimes loss is inevitable. Even in these situations, however, your choices are now better than ever, thanks to modern dentistry.
When you think of dentures, you may have a picture of your grandparents’ dentures in your mind: the kind with an acrylic base that rarely stays in place properly and spends the night in a jar of water beside the bed. While dentures like that are still in use in some places as an extremely affordable option, your Brooklyn dentist offers you many other choices, including:
- Full dentures
- Partial dentures
- Flexible dentures
- Flexible partial dentures
- Same-day dentures
- Permanent dentures, such as implant dentures or snap-in dentures
Depending on your needs, you can make a choice that fits your lifestyle and budget. The differences between the types of dentures are significant. Implant dentures and snap in dentures, for example, are not necessarily affordable.
What Are Flexible Dentures?
Flexible dentures provide a virtually unbreakable restoration. The flexible coating, also known as a liner, acts as a shock absorber between the hard base containing the teeth and your gums. The soft fit allows for the continuous changes in your gums and jawbone as you age. The liner is nonporous, so you don’t have to worry about bacteria build-up in the dentures.
Your dentist can make you a full set or flexible partial dentures, depending on how many teeth you’ve lost. Flexible partial dentures are nearly identical to your remaining teeth. This option costs a little more than traditional dentures, but takes less time, with fewer fittings. Most people report the comfort level well worth the added cost.
Fitting and Caring for Your Flexible Dentures
Fitting for flexible dentures or flexible partial dentures is a relatively quick and easy process. Your family dentist takes X-rays and impressions of your mouth and jaw to correctly position your new dentures. Your Brooklyn dentist then constructs your personalized flexible dentures, often onsite. In a few days, you have to come back to receive them and make sure they fit properly.
That’s it. There’s no surgery or invasive methods involved. Therefore, you have zero recovery time, although you still have to get used to wearing your new dentures, which may take a few days. The more you wear them, the more you get used to them. Most people report that it took much less time to feel comfortable with these dentures than with traditional ones.
Flexible dentures are durable and almost unbreakable, so you don’t need to worry as much about the cost of possible denture repairs in the future. But you do have to learn to care for your dentures. You can use a sonic denture cleaner or simply rinse them under running water. Don’t use your toothbrush on your new dentures, as it can damage the polish.
Getting Same Day Dentures
Also known as immediate dentures, same day dentures may be an option for you whether you need partial dentures or full dentures. These dentures ensure that your smile is always complete since you leave your Brooklyn dentist’s office with those dentures in place. Same day dentures also protect your gums if you’re getting them immediately after a tooth extraction.
If you’re concerned about cost and only want affordable dentures, then same day dentures may not be for you, since they can cost more than regular dentures. And not everyone qualifies for these dentures. Ask your dentist at Broadway Family Dental if same day dentures are right for you.
Regardless if you have traditional dentures, implant dentures, snap in dentures or same day dentures, accidents can happen. Even “unbreakable” flexible dentures can’t withstand every trauma. Fortunately, your Brooklyn, NY dentist can fix problems quickly to get your smile back to where it’s supposed to be. Denture repair includes procedures to take care of:
- Broken denture palates
- Cracked dentures
- Rebuilding of the denture gum area
- Restoration of missing pieces of the dentures
- Restoration of an implant
It takes a visit to allow your dentist to examine the damage and decide what needs to be done. Broadway Family Dental also offers emergency dental services that include denture repair. When something’s wrong with your dentures, it affects your smile, as well as how comfortably you can speak and eat. Don’t wait for denture repair; see to it right away.
Modern dentistry offers more options than ever before for your denture needs. Whether you and your dentist decide to go with traditional full dentures, flexible partial dentures or implant dentures, your comfort, lifestyle, and budget are always considered. Affordable dentures can be your temporary or permanent solution. Ask your family dentist what’s the best dentures for you.
