Flexible, Complete & Partial Dentures at Lynnwood Dental Studio

Types of Dentures

Dentures are classified by the number of teeth they replace and the way they are held in the mouth. They can be Conventional or Immediate Full Dentures. Conventional full dentures are used to replace all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw, and partial dentures are used when the patient still has some of their natural teeth.

 

Conventional dentures fit directly over the gums in the mouth. A conventional full denture is placed in your mouth after the remaining teeth are removed. Conventional dentures are a good choice for those who cannot undergo dental implant surgery due to poor healing, diabetes, due to cost, or an autoimmune condition. They are also suitable for patients whose jaw-bone structure is not strong enough to support implants.

 

Full dentures replace all teeth in the upper or lower arch. Some patients only wear a lower denture or upper denture, whereas other patients wear both. Generally, your dentist will wait until after you've healed from having your teeth extracted before designing a denture for you to wear, which takes time. If you do not want to wait, a different type of denture called an immediate full denture can be placed in your jaw immediately after your remaining teeth have been extracted.

Partial dentures replace just some of the teeth. If you are missing all your molars but still have your incisors, your dentist may design a partial denture with wires that fit over your front teeth, and false teeth that sit in where your molars once were. Every partial denture is different, and if you lose additional teeth after having your partial denture made, your dentist can often alter the denture to add new false teeth as needed.

Implant-supported dentures also known as mini-implants anchor onto four or more titanium screws that your dentist inserts into your jawbone during a surgical procedure. This type of denture has several advantages. It does not move as you speak and chew, and you do not need to use glue or cement to hold it in place. Implant-supported dentures often look and feel more natural on the mouth than conventional dentures. However, they do require a surgical procedure, which not all patients are comfortable with, and they are more costly than conventional dentures.

 

Denture Relines

Although your new denture will fit your mouth properly, over time, the tissue growth in the gums change. As a result, the denture becomes loose and moves inside your mouth. You need a reliner over the denture to keep it secure and functional.

​​

Soft Reliner. Some patients are uncomfortable in wearing ordinary dentures due to tender gums, sore spots, or sharp bony areas. In this case, your dentist may recommend lining the denture with a soft material (soft reliner) to provide relief. Soft liners can also be used when creating new dentures or retrofitted into existing dentures.

Temporary Reliner. If you do not receive the denture in time, your gums may become inflamed, swollen, or misshapen. This creates problems in taking impressions for a new hard or soft reline and may lead to complications. In this case, your dentist may recommend a temporary or medicated reline material that reduces inflammation. After a few weeks, the gums return to a more normal state and you will be ready for new denture.

Frequently asked questions about Dentures

What are Dentures?


Dentures are replacement for removable false teeth that are lost due to teeth decay or injury. Dentures are available in two forms: complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when a few natural are missing. Learn more about dentures here (put an internal link).




How much complete denture costs?


The cost of dentures depends on the material used and the extent of customization. At Lynnwood Dental Studio dentures cost between $1000 and $2000.




How much partial dentures cost?


The price of partial dentures varies depending on the patient’s requirements, the material used, the extent of customization, and local rates in the dentist’s practicing area.

A low-cost partial denture (flipper) can cost from $300 to $800 per denture. Low-cost dentures appear artificial and do not appear as natural teeth.

Mid-priced partial dentures of better quality can cost between $1000 and $2000 per denture. Mid-priced dentures appear more like natural teeth.

High-quality partial dentures can cost between $2,000 and $4,000 per denture. High-quality dentures appear much more like natural teeth and are stable for a long-time.




What are flexible dentures?


Unlike traditional dentures that are made with combinations of porcelain, acrylic resin, and cobalt metal, flexible dentures are made with nylon. They are shatter-proof, don’t require adhesive to hold them in place, and since the material is clear, it shows the natural gum color.




How to clean dentures?


Whether you have removable, partial or full dentures, proper cleaning is necessary to maintain good oral health and extend the life of the dentures. Follow the suggested guidelines for good denture care.

Remove and rinse after eating: Run water over your dentures to remove food debris and other loose particles.

Clean your mouth: Use a soft-bristled toothbrush on natural teeth and gauze or a soft toothbrush to clean your tongue, cheeks and roof of your mouth. If you used any adhesive, remove before brushing.

Handle carefully: Don’t drop or bend after cleaning.

Clean daily: Remove, soak, and brush them with a soft-bristled brush and nonabrasive denture cleanser to remove food, plaque and other deposits.

Soak overnight: Place the dentures in water or a mild denture-soaking solution overnight. Follow manufacturer's instructions on cleaning and soaking solutions.

Rinse thoroughly: Rinse the dentures thoroughly before placing them in your mouth as most of the denture cleaning solutions may contain harmful chemicals.

Get regular dental checkups: See your dentist if your dentures become loose. Your dentist can help ensure a proper fit for your dentures and prevent slipping and discomfort. Loosened dentures can cause irritation, sores and infection.




How to fix broken denture?


Dentures break for many reasons. Please don’t use store-bought adhesives to fix your dentures as they contain harmful chemicals. You could do irreparable damage and end up having to spend more money to repair the denture. Contact your dentist office to get them repaired.




How to whiten dentures?


Ask your dentist to recommend a non-abrasive, professional denture cleanser that can remove stains. Soaking your dentures in solutions sold in many stores contain bleach and chlorine that damages the dentures.




How long Dentures last?


With proper care, most of the dentures last five to ten years. To maximize their durability and longevity, clean your dentures every single night and visit the dentist at least twice a year.




How to reline dentures?


It is best to have your dentist to do your denture reline. Doing a reline yourself may mess up the fit, and they won’t last longer.




How long does it take to get dentures?


Getting a new complete denture depends on many factors. It usually takes three to six weeks.




How many visits do I need to get dentures?


Making complete dentures usually takes a minimum of 4 visits.
