Dentures Overview

Custom-made dentures may be a good option if you need to replace most or all of your teeth. Removable dentures can renew your appearance and allow you to speak and eat with ease. Led by Dr. Brett Cotham, our team of expert dentists can provide either full or partial removable dentures for patients in Joplin, MO. Full dentures can replace your whole upper arch, lower arch, or both while partial dentures leave your remaining teeth to act as support. At 32nd Street Dental, we will help you decide whether full or partial dentures match your needs and then have them custom made to look beautiful and natural. Schedule a consultation with our office to learn more about full and partial dentures.

Best Candidates for Dentures

You may be a candidate for custom dentures if you have lost most or all of your teeth, but your jawbone and gums are strong and healthy. If you have natural teeth, these may either be extracted for a full denture or kept with a partial denture. In your appointment with one of our talented dentists, they will examine your condition and give you your options based on your needs and goals.

What To Expect for Dentures

If needed, one of our dentists will extract any natural teeth before taking oral impressions, which will be used to craft your custom dentures. Partial dentures will be tinted to match your natural teeth for a seamless result. Once your full or partial dentures are finished, we will adjust them to be comfortable. We will also discuss methods to care for your custom dentures.

Follow-Up for Dentures

It will probably take some time before your new dentures feel comfortable, but it should eventually be easier to eat and speak normally. If your dentures feel loose, return to 32nd Street Dental to have your dentures adjusted. At home, you will need to keep your dentures clean by brushing them twice every day. Whenever you remove your dentures, they should be soaked to avoid drying out. Continue to schedule annual exams and bi-annual cleanings at 32nd Street Dental so our team can watch the wear and fit of your custom denture and the health of your jaw and gums. We will let you know if your dentures should be repaired or replaced, but with good care, your dentures should last for a long time.

Dentures Insurance Coverage

If you have dental insurance, part of the cost of your dentures will probably be covered. A member of our team will contact your dental insurance company to figure out your coverage and out-of-pocket responsibilities. In your first appointment with our experienced team, we will personalize your treatment plan so your dentures fit both your needs and budget. To assist with making your treatment more affordable, whether you have dental insurance or not, 32nd Street Dental accepts many forms of payment, including medical financing.
