You Can Repair Your Smile And Change Your Life The Many Benefits of Dentures

Increased Dental Function

Missing teeth can hinder your ability to chew and even alter your speech patterns. Dentures can allow you to eat and speak without hindrance.

Improve the Aesthetics of Your Smile

Missing teeth can distract from your smile, cause jaw recession, and make your mouth look sunken and aged. Traditional dentures will fill out your facial structure while implant-supported restorations preserve your bone density. 

Enhance Your Self-Confidence

Prosthetic teeth restore your ability to eat the foods you like, confidently speak in public, and show off your smile with pride. As a result, dentures can even improve your self-esteem and help you live a better quality of life.

I really can’t say enough good things about the staff and facilities here. Would absolutely recommend to anyone anywhere. I recently moved out of the Dearborn area and will drive the 45 minutes to this office as long as I have teeth. And once I don’t, I’ll come here for dentures. Dr. Luria and his team are incredible!

Dr Mark Luria and staff are the most professional and caring people I have ever met. My Rottweiler puppy decided to chew my upper denture. Dearborn Family Dentistry rebuilt it for me the same day. Ten days later, the puppy struck again! This time my denture was totally destroyed! Within 12 days and lots of labor from Dr Luria and staff, I'm smiling again! I'm very pleased at the way the staff were so pleasant and worked so hard to help me as fast as possible.

Why Choose Implant-Supported Dentures?

Implant-Supported Dentures Are Highly Stable and Durable 


Our doctor can place four or more dental implants to anchor a full dental arch. These posts can last a lifetime and can save you money on tooth restoration in the long run. Diagram showing how implants secure a denture to the jaw.

Implant-supported dentures have all the same benefits as their traditional counterparts and more. Implant-supported dentures won’t slip out of place while you’re eating or speaking. The implants themselves also help prevent your jawbone from deteriorating, which happens naturally if you’re missing teeth. Traditional dentures can accelerate that bone loss.

Implants can even help you save money on the long-term expenses of dental restorations: if your gums and jawbone change shape, a traditional pair of dentures may not fit as well anymore. By maintaining the jawbone, implants can help your dentures last longer and decrease the number of replacements you may need in the future. 

Ask Our Dentists About Implant-Supported Dentures 

While implants and implant-supported dentures offer some of the best results for missing teeth, the treatment is more involved.

As members of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Dr. Luria and Dr. Allswang have the training to answer questions about the procedure during a consultation.

Our practice also offers seminars on dental implants so you can learn more about this revolutionary technique that can be used to replace a single tooth or all of your teeth.

You can also submit your questions directly in this form and we'll get back to you. Or call our office in Dearborn, MI, to get answers now or to request a consultation:

Can I afford high-quality dentures?

Cost Friendly Treatment and Financing Options

Patient offering crdit card

A common concern for patients with missing teeth is being able to afford dentures. It is important to know that traditional dentures are often covered partially or completely by insurance providers. While this type is the most cost-friendly option upfront, many patients find that dental implants are worth the additional investment for their added benefits and long-term savings.

We believe all of our patients deserve access to the very highest quality of care. To help make treatment more affordable, we offer financing options through CareCredit® and LendingClub®, allowing you to make low-interest monthly payments for any out-of-pocket expenses.

Dearborn Family Dentistry strives to give you fair and transparently priced treatment and will provide a personal estimate at your consultation appointment.

Timeline for Traditional Dentures

Before undergoing dental treatment, it is important to know what to expect. Here is a typical timeline for traditional denture treatment: 
Your dentures are made at the trusted local lab we have worked with for over 40 years. 
Your dentures are made at the trusted local lab we have worked with for over 40 years. 

Consultation

During your initial consultation, the dentist will design a custom treatment plan according to your needs. This begins with taking X-rays to determine your bone density and jaw health.

Extractions 

After deciding what treatment is right for you, we may recommend tooth extractions to prepare your mouth for dentures. We will administer an anesthetic and provide sedation if needed to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.

Impressions

After about eight to 12 weeks, your gums will heal from extractions and our dentist can take impressions of your mouth. This information is sent to our trusted local lab that we have worked with for over 40 years to construct the highest quality dentures.

Assessing Models 

The lab will send back model dentures or wax forms for you to try on. We assess the positioning, size, shape, and overall appearance and make any modifications to the molds. 

Fitting

When the dentures are complete, we will schedule an appointment to have them fit. Once the prosthetic teeth are in place, the dentist will check your bite and make any necessary adjustments. 

Adjustment Period

The dentures may feel slightly uncomfortable or loose for a few weeks while your mouth adapts and your muscles grow to support the prosthetics. It is normal for patients to need occasional adjustments, which can be taken care of during periodic visits and dental check-ups. 

What Do the Results Look Like?

Using modern dental technology, we carefully design and craft comfortable long-lasting dentures that restore your oral function.

When Should I Contact a Dentist About My Dentures?

Changed Fit

While many patients may use adhesives to help hold their dentures in place, adhesives cannot restore the function of your smile like a good-fitting pair of dentures can. Unless you have certain oral conditions or a job that requires a lot of singing or public speaking, you should not need to use heavy amounts of adhesive to hold your dentures in place. If your dentures keep slipping, you should contact our office and ask about getting a new pair. 

Damaged Dentures 

Older pairs of dentures may become more susceptible to damage, especially if they dry out. If you notice a crack or break in your dentures, you should contact our office immediately. Try to collect any missing chips or pieces that fell off and bring them with you to our office. Do not try to fix the dentures yourself, as this could damage the materials even more. Our team will work quickly to provide a new pair if your current dentures cannot be fixed. 

Don't Settle for a Loose Fit Contact Our Practice About Denture Replacements 

Our practice has been helping Dearborn patients take care of their dental restorations for over 70 years, and we can do the same for you. Our staff will be happy to answer any questions you have about denture maintenance and what to do during a dental emergency.

Denture Care and Maintenance 

On average, well-cared-for conventional dentures will last five to eight years. It is important to attend regular dental check-ups and practice good oral hygiene in addition to maintaining your prosthetic teeth. Our dentist will advise you on proper techniques to care for your dentures, including:

Remove and Rinse after Meals

When possible, you should remove your dentures and wash them after every meal to keep them free of food particles and other loose debris. 

Handle the Prosthetic Carefully

Make sure not to warp or bend the acrylic base when removing your denture. Wash them over a towel or bowl of water to prevent damage if they accidentally slip from your hands. 

Soak Overnight

A good pair of removable dentures can become warped or cracked if you leave them out to dry, so you should soak them overnight in a dedicated cleaning solution or lukewarm glass of water. 

Avoid Abrasives and Excess Pressure

Use a small-to medium-headed toothbrush to clean the prosthetic at least once daily with non-abrasive toothpaste. Be careful when eating especially hard foods as your denture is prone to the same cracks and damage as natural teeth. 

Follow Your Instructions 

While dedicated cleaning solutions can help keep your dentures clean, some solutions and denture types are not compatible. Check with our dentist before buying any cleaners or adhesives to make sure they won't damage the denture materials. 

Sedation Dentistry 

Sedation dentistry can help you relax during our treatments, but sedation is not only used for dental anxiety.

Common conditions like arthritis can make sitting still a challenge for some patients. With sedation, we can provide a more comfortable experience in the dental chair and help the process go a little faster.  

Our practice offers nitrous oxide, a light form of sedation that you inhale through a mask to ease your tension. For related procedures like implants, we can combine local anesthesia and nitrous oxide for a virtually painless experience.
