What are digital dentures?

What are dentures?

Dentures are removable tooth prosthetics that replace tooth structure lost to dental disease or trauma. There are two types of dentures: full and partial. Full dentures are used to replace all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.

Digital dentures explained

Digital dentures are a custom-fitted, tooth replacement option that can be placed in just one to two days. Traditional dentures require patients to come back for fittings and adjustments.

Advantages of digital dentures

Digital dentures are more comfortable than traditional dentures. Digital dentures are designed using computer technology, which is used to create precise measurements. When digital dentures are made, the fit is more natural and more comfortable for the wearer. Traditional dentures, on the other hand, are molded to fit the patient’s gum line.

Disadvantages of digital dentures

There are several disadvantages to getting digital dentures. For starters, digital dentures tend to cost more than traditional dentures. This is because digital dentures are customized to your mouth, while traditional dentures are not. Another major disadvantage is that digital dentures are not a good option for patients who need an immediate solution.

Is digital denture right for me?

Digital dentures provide plenty of benefits, but sometimes they may not be the right choice. In order to determine whether digital dentures are right for you, your dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. Digital dentures are often best for patients who are missing some of their natural teeth, but still have healthy gums and jawbones.

How do I care for my dentures?

Dentures should be brushed and rinsed daily. They should also be soaked overnight in a denture cleaning solution. Brushing too hard or using a stiff-bristled brush can scratch your dentures.

If you experience issues with your dentures, such as slipping, irritation, or difficulty chewing, make an appointment with your dentist.

How much do digital dentures cost?

Like traditional dentures, the cost of digital dentures varies based on the materials used and the extent of the work needed. On average, patients will pay between $1,500 and $5,000. This price range can increase if other oral health issues are present, such as periodontal disease, or teeth need to be extracted prior to receiving digital dentures.

Where to get digital

Digital dentures are digitally fabricated and positioned on a patient by a licensed dental professional. Digital dentures are secured in place by dental implants.
