What are dentures?
Dentures are a set of artificial teeth that replaces your natural teeth which were lost or cannot be saved due to reasons that include, Gum disease, Rampant cavities, Genetic Defects, and Trauma.
Dentures can put the smile back on your face by providing better chewing ability and greater aesthetic appeal.
Below are the general types of dentures:
This serves as a temporary denture between the time that your teeth are extracted and your final dentures are installed. It allows you to maintain your smile and chewing function while the swelling in your gums decreases after mass extractions. If you’re getting dentures to replace previously extracted teeth or only extracting a couple teeth you may be able to skip an immediate denture and complete all of your services in one day at Dentures-4-Less.
These dentures are designed based on your choice of color (to match naturalness) and fit. Depending on material and patient care you can expect a permanent denture to last anywhere from 5 to 10 years. Dentures-4-Less uses superior workmanship in all our products to ensure proper fit.
Implants consist of surgically installed anchors in your gum that allows less movement of the dentures and prevent or compensate for changes in bone structure.
Why are Dentures-4-Less fees significantly lower than others?
We maintain an in-house denture laboratory that cuts the expense of manufacturing dentures. The other benefit is that we can do fittings on the same day in most cases. Furthermore, we offer a range of denture options for patients with varied budgets. We work with the patient to figure out the best options based on their personal situation.
Do you accept dental insurance?
Yes, some insurances are accepted. Contact us or your provider to check your coverage.
Can I come in for an emergency appointment?
Yes! Our practice is able to provide same-day appointments for patients that are in pain and need emergency extractions or denture repairs. Available services that can be rendered will depend on the patient’s state of health and medications being taken. If the emergency occurs off hours and cannot wait until business hours, call 911 or visit the nearest emergency health care facility.
