Patients ask Longview, TX dentist, “What is an affordable quality denture?”
Cost is one of the primary factors in making a decision about dental treatment. From cosmetic to restorative procedures, patients often ask about cost factors. When patients suffer from tooth loss Longview TX dentist Dr. Clint Bruyere will provide several types of dentures at an affordable cost. Often patients will ask, “What is an affordable quality denture?” We are happy to explain.
Choosing the type of dentures that are right for you
We provide the following types of dentures:
- Complete dentures – The restorations replace an arch of teeth on the lower or upper jaw.
- Partial dentures – They are ideal for replacing one to several missing teeth.
- Dentures supported by dental implants – Instead of using dental adhesives, we can attach the dentures to titanium implants during a surgical procedure. The dentures snap onto the implants, resting on top of the gums.
Exploring the cost factors of dentures
Most dental insurance providers cover some to all of the cost of dentures, so it is important to check your coverage. Cost factors of dentures include dental materials used. If there is a need for additional procedures such as extractions of remaining teeth, the cost may increase.
What to expect for treatment
During a consultation appointment, Dr. Bruyere will examine your mouth, teeth and gums and ask you about your medical history. We may take x-rays and photographs of your mouth. Next, we will take impressions of the oral tissues that will support the dentures. Third, we send the molds to a dental laboratory where technicians create your customized dentures. Once they are completed, Dr. Bruyere will ensure proper appearance, bite and fit.
Learning about the benefits of dentures
Patients notice an improvement in biting, chewing and speaking after they receive their dentures. They often feel more confident about the appearance of their smiles and are more likely to socialize with their friends.
