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.

Implant-Supported Dentures Are Highly Stable and Durable 

Our doctor will place four or more implant posts to anchor a full dental arch. These posts can last a lifetime and can save you money on tooth restoration in the long run.

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.

Can I afford high-quality dentures?

Cost Friendly Treatment and Financing Options

When you undergo treatment at our Dearborn, MI, office, we personalize your care to fit your needs and your budget.

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 longterm 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 Dental 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. 

Day of Procedure

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 of 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 and Adjustments 

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. You can expect the dentures to 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.

Denture Care and Maintence 

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

Wash food particles and other loose debris from the teeth before reinserting them into the mouth.

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

Place removable dentures in a glass of water overnight to prevent them from drying out, warping, or cracking. 

Avoid Abrasive Materials and Exsseive Pressure

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