Dentures are a fantastic treatment option that empowers people with tooth loss to smile confidently again, eat their favorite food, and live life without worrying about missing teeth.
There are several types of dentures, ranging from traditional to implant-supported dentures. Find out which one will work best for you.
When thinking of dentures, most people picture the clunky, ill-fitting dentures of the past. Dentures have come a long way in recent years. At Precision Dentistry & Implants, our dentures look completely natural, are far more comfortable to wear, and are much easier to adjust to than dentures used to be.
Your natural-looking dentures are custom-made just for you. We begin the process by taking a series of impressions of your mouth and jaw to ensure that your dentures will fit precisely.
Next, we fabricate a model for you to try on. At this stage, we’ll adjust the shape, fit, and aesthetics of your dentures until they’re perfect. Now, your dentures are ready to show off to your friends.
Dr. Huff also provides implant-supported, or “snap-on” dentures. These dentures are secured using strategically placed dental implants. Dental implants function like the roots of your teeth, preventing your dentures from moving or shifting throughout the day.
Like traditional dentures, snap-on dentures are easily removed for cleaning and maintenance. Unlike traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures strengthen your jaw and prevent bone loss through a process called osseointegration.
Implant-supported dentures are a great option for almost every patient, and we’d love to schedule a free consult at our Kerrville dental office to answer any questions you have about dentures or dental implants. Schedule your visit with Dr. Huff today. We can’t wait for you to discover how a confident, new smile will change your life.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the process for implant-supported dentures?
Your second appointment is where Dr. Huff will place a cap, or dental crown, on the top of each implant to facilitate healing. These will be worn for 10 to 14 days, and then the healing caps are replaced with abutments. A metal bar is placed on the abutments and you’ll try on your new teeth. If it’s a good fit, your teeth will be permanently secured in place. You’ll schedule follow up appointments to ensure everything is just right.
How much do implant-supported dentures cost?
On average, affordable dentures can cost as little as $300 and more natural-looking dentures can cost $5,000. Implant-supported dentures range from $1,600 to $2,200 per tooth. We offer flexible financing options so you won’t be left in a pinch.
