Did you know that as you age, your risk of tooth decay, cavities, and oral cancer increases? The increase in risk is partially due to the gradual weakening of teeth over the course of life. While your oral health needs may change, that doesn’t mean your smile has to suffer! At Edgewater Dental Arts, we offer a variety of restorative treatments that can preserve and protect your smile. Today, we want to highlight the benefits of dentures.

What Are Dentures?

Dentures are a comprehensive treatment for missing teeth. Complete dentures replace an entire arch (or both upper and lower arches) and allow you to talk, smile, and enjoy your favorite foods. Partial dentures are just how they sound — instead of replacing an entire arch, they only replace some of your missing teeth and are anchored in place using an implant.

Are Dentures Comfortable?

Modern dental technology means that dentures are more comfortable than ever before. When creating a custom set of dentures for you, we can choose from a wide range of materials. This means we can create an individualized solution based on your oral health and your personal preferences. All it takes to get started is a consultation with our team.

Are Dentures Expensive?

The cost of getting dentures varies. We don’t believe in one-size-fits-all treatment, so we tailor each pair of dentures to your specific needs and budget. After your consultation with our team, we’ll provide you with several options to choose from so you can decide which best fits your needs.

Our team will also work with you when it comes to paying for your dentures. Not only do we accept most major dental insurance and take care of the necessary paperwork and billing, we also offer flexible payment options and interest-free financing for qualified patients.
