Benefits of Dentures
Every tooth in your mouth works together to promote the health and functions of your smile. When even one is missing, it will have lasting consequences if it is not replaced.

Dentures provide an affordable and convenient way to make a long-term investment in your life. With a customized treatment plan, you will enjoy:
- Improves confidence.
- Ability to chew a wider variety of foods.
- Promotes your oral health.
- Provides support for your facial structures.
- Speak clearly.
- Prevents additional tooth loss.
- Reduces risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
Indications of Dentures
Now, several advancements have been made in dentistry to allow dentures to look and feel more natural than ever. Depending on how many teeth you are missing, you have a couple different treatment options available.
Several missing teeth can be replaced with a partial denture. Prosthetic teeth are designed to match your natural ones, so they blend in seamlessly when you smile. They are attached to a gum-colored base that connects to a metal framework. This allows it to clasp to your remaining teeth to hold it in place.
Complete tooth loss on the top or bottom arch can be treated with a traditional denture. Impressions of your mouth are taken to create an acrylic base, which holds your custom-made teeth. Suction or an adhesive is used to attach your denture to your gum tissue.
For a more permanent option, you can benefit from implant-retained dentures in Mansfield. Instead of relying on suction or an adhesive, an average of 4 implant posts are used to connect the denture to your jawbone. You will never need to worry about any slipping or irritation as it stays securely in place.
Understanding the Cost of Dentures
There is no set price tag for the amount you can expect to pay for your new smile because it is based on your individual treatment plan. There are several factors that influence the cost, such as the type of denture you are using, if you need any additional procedures, and your dental insurance.
On average, conventional partials and dentures are more affordable upfront; however, dental implants are more cost-effective long-term because they have the potential to last for a lifetime. During your consultation Dr. Hamm will provide you with an estimate and discuss your payment options.
