Tooth loss is one of the most common dental issues we see in our adult patients at Amores Dental in Miami. There are several things that could cause tooth loss- but no matter what the cause, dentures may be the solution. The team at Amores Dental is committed to helping you get your smile and your confidence back with a variety of tooth replacement options, including complete and partial dentures.
Dentures, often referred to as artificial teeth, are one of the tooth replacement options we offer at Amores Dental in Miami, Florida. There are several things that can cause tooth loss in adults. For some, it's simply a natural part of aging. Others have tooth decay, gum disease, or sustain trauma to their face. No matter what has caused your tooth loss, dentures can help you get your smile and confidence back.
When you are missing teeth, everyday tasks become a chore. You may not smile as much because you're embarrassed by the gaps. Missing teeth affect your ability to speak clearly and can make you look older than you are because your face begins to sink.
On average, dentures cost between $650 to $4,000. Most dental insurance plans will cover a portion of dentures and related procedures. Our friendly office staff will work with your provider to determine coverage. We will provide you with a detailed quote that shows what insurance covers and what your portion is before we move forward with treatment.
We accept a variety of payment options, including cash, check, credit/debit cards, and Flexible Spending Accounts. We also offer financing through CareCredit and Lending Club for patients who qualify. This will allow you to get the treatment you need and allow you to structure your payments so that they fit in your budget.
Metal is another common material for dentures. This is a combination of chromium and cobalt. The base and the teeth are made of metal- but the visible portion of the tooth is colored like your natural teeth, while the gum is tinted pink to look like your gums. Metal dentures are slim, durable, and do not impact the remaining teeth. They are more expensive than acrylic.
At Amores Dental, we offer four types of dentures. The appropriate one depends on your needs and goals.
Removable partials are designed to replace some teeth in your upper or lower arch and can be removed/replaced easily. Partials must be removed before bed and placed in a solution for cleaning. We offer this option for patients who do not qualify for implant-supported options.
Fixed partials , or implant-supported bridges, also replace several missing teeth. A traditional dental bridge requires the support of healthy teeth on each side of the gap, while an implant-supported bridge requires the placement of dental implants for the bridge to attach to. A fixed partial is only removable by the dentist.
Implant-supported dentures require the placement of at least 2 dental implants. These are more stable than traditional dentures. However, they still must be removed at night for cleaning and to allow your gums to rest.
According to the Oral Health Foundation, there is a standard for cleaning dentures:
