Affordable Dentures in Delaware, Ohio

Dentures are a reliable solution for replacing missing teeth and restoring proper tooth function, which aids in chewing, appearance, and overall oral health. They are a removable dental appliance that fills in tooth gaps and replaces the function that your natural teeth previously provided to give you your smile back. 

Dentures benefit patients who have lost some or all of their teeth due to gum diseases, decay, or injury. Even though it takes some time to get used to dentures, the benefits outweigh any temporary discomfort. However, you can prevent the need for dentures if you maintain good oral hygiene and visit your dentist regularly for cleanings and exams.

If you need dentures for any reason, rest assured that with today’s technological advances, you can obtain them at the most reasonable rates. Contact us for more details about this cosmetic dental procedure and we would be glad to answer all of your questions!

Different Types of Dentures Available

If Dr. Batterton recommends dentures, several types are available, each made from a different material and serving a different purpose. That is why it is essential to know the benefits of the various types when deciding on the best type for you.

In full dentures or complete dentures, all of a patient’s teeth sit on top of the gums, unlike dental bridges anchored to the existing teeth. Usually, complete dentures can be placed within eight to twelve weeks of tooth extraction.

If you are missing only a few teeth, partial dentures are a good replacement option. Unlike complete dentures, these are held in place by a plastic base that matches the color of your gums. Typically, a metal framework is built to hold the base in place and keep it from falling out.

Temporary dentures, also called immediate dentures, can be fitted immediately after your teeth have been extracted. They are an option to help you get by while you wait for your new permanent dentures to be fitted.

Dentures supported by dental implants are known as implant-supported dentures. Implants are attached to a surgically-fixed base that is attached to the jawbone. When Dr. Batterton determines that you are a suitable candidate for dental implants, including having sufficient jawbone, he will choose the type of implant to use.

What to Expect When Getting Dentures at Eric Batterton, DDS

We will thoroughly examine your teeth and oral health to determine the best type of dentures for you. Here are the steps in our denture process:

Dental Examination

Our team begins the process by checking your teeth and gum tissue and assessing their overall dental health.

Making the Dentures

Dr. Batterton will take a mold of the teeth and measurements after the consultation to ensure that the dentures will fit perfectly. Following these results, we will send them to a dental lab for construction.

Fitting the Dentures

After the dentures are completed, we will invite our patient in for a fitting to ensure a proper fit. We'll make sure that you can wear the dentures comfortably. We will also make adjustments to the dentures if necessary during this appointment.
