Missing some or most of your natural teeth can take a toll on your smile’s health and function. At Capstone Dental, our Charlotte, NC, dentist offers various denture solutions to restore your smile. Dentures consist of dental prosthetics that can replace multiple teeth or even a full arch that’s missing. Dr. Steven Yang offers traditional and implant-supported dentures for your convenience. 

Dentures have helped countless patients in Matthews, Mint Hill, and Huntersville, NC, complete their beautiful smiles. Read on to learn how dentures can benefit your oral health and help you achieve the confidence that comes with achieving your dream smile.

What Are Dentures?

These restorations help to dramatically restore your smile’s function, health, and natural appearance. With dentures, you’ll be able to enjoy your favorite foods and speak with clarity without having to worry about how you look. 

Regardless of how many teeth you’re missing, our dentist in Charlotte, NC, can provide an affordable denture solution to meet your unique oral health needs. We offer removable and fixed dentures to help our patients reclaim their healthy smiles.

Types of Dentures

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are the perfect restorative solution for patients who are only missing a few natural teeth that are adjacent to each other. Using strategically-placed hooks and dental prosthetics, partial dentures fit comfortably in your mouth for complete smile restoration. This denture solution helps prevent your remaining teeth from shifting out of alignment.

Full dentures are what come to most patients’ minds when they think about dentures. Also known as complete dentures, this solution consists of full arches of prosthetic teeth. Full dentures are a convenient and affordable dental solution that can be used for either the upper or lower arches of your mouth— or both, if necessary. They’re custom-fitted for a sturdy and comfortable fit.

Implant-Retained Dentures

For patients seeking a fixed denture option, our Charlotte dental implant specialist offers implant-supported dentures. These dentures are attached and anchored to your mouth with dental implants for a permanent tooth loss solution. They’ll never shift out of place, and don’t need to be removed for cleanings or overnight soakings. 

Frequently Asked Questions

The longevity of your dentures depends on the type you received. Full dentures typically last seven to 10 years, while partial dentures can last up to 15 years with proper care. The implants of fixed dentures can last a lifetime, though your dental prosthetics may need to be replaced after 10 to 20 years due to normal wear and tear.

To get the most out of your dentures, it’s important to practice a good oral hygiene regimen and schedule regular dental appointments with our Charlotte, NC dentist.  

Most dental insurance agencies will cover a portion of the costs of your dentures since it’s considered a medically necessary procedure. However, the exact coverage depends on your policy. That’s why we recommend contacting your provider for more information.  

At Capstone Dental, we pride ourselves on offering affordable dentures to Charlotte, NC, patients. We offer interest-free financing and-house dental savings plan to fit your budget.

Your complete and partial dentures require regular care to remain in prime condition. To keep your denture appliances looking and functioning their best, we recommend that you:

  • Remove and rinse your dentures after eating
  • Clean your mouth after removing your dentures
  • Brush your dentures daily 
  • Soak your dentures overnight
  • Rinse your dentures before placing them back in your mouth
  • Schedule regular dental checkups with Dr. Yang

Implant-retained dentures, however, don’t require any special maintenance. They can be cared for like natural teeth. Be sure to use a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste. If you have any questions regarding denture care, call our office at 980-202-5696!
