The Comprehensive Guide to Dentures at Blu Dental

Reclaiming Confidence with Custom Dentures in Miami Shores

Dentures are a time-honored solution for replacing missing teeth, and at Blu Dental in Miami Shores, we’re dedicated to restoring smiles with custom-fitted dentures that look natural and feel comfortable. With over 50 years of combined dental expertise in South Florida, our family-owned practice leverages the newest technology in our state-of-the-art dental offices to create dentures that enhance your quality of life and boost your self-esteem

Understanding Dentures: A New Beginning for Your Smile

Dentures are removable dental appliances that replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They come in two main types: complete dentures for when all teeth are missing, and partial dentures when some natural teeth remain. Dentures not only improve your smile and facial appearance but also enhance your ability to speak and eat comfortably.

The Investment in Dentures: Balancing Cost and Quality

The average cost of dentures can vary widely, typically ranging from $500 to $3,000 per arch, depending on factors such as the type of dentures, materials used, and additional procedures required. At Blu Dental, we understand the importance of balancing cost with quality. We offer low in-house financing rates and accept all major insurance providers to make the process as affordable as possible. Plus, we provide free x-rays and exams for all new patients to help determine the best course of action for your dental needs.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are custom-made replacements for one or a few missing teeth, secured by metal clasps. They are affordable and non-invasive, improving the smile and oral function while preventing misalignment of remaining teeth.

Full Dentures

Full dentures are a dental appliance that replaces an entire set of upper or lower teeth. This type of denture is usually not permanently attached, allowing for easy removal.

Implant-supported Dentures

This denture technique utilizes a hybrid approach by implanting either 4, 6 or 8 fixtures and then securely attaching a denture to the top of them.

Frequently Asked Questions

More questions? We’re ready to help. Give us a call at (305) 2100-BLU.

Adapting to removable dentures might require a period of adjustment. Initially, dentures may feel unfamiliar in your mouth, but this sensation will diminish over time.

You might also encounter minor alterations in your speech, increased salivation, and a changed taste with new dentures. Typically, these effects fade with time. If they persist, reach out to Blu Dental and inform us of your concerns.

Useful recommendations to facilitate your transition to new dentures:

  • When acclimating to chewing with your new dentures, begin with softer foods before progressing to harder textures.
  • Chew on both sides of your mouth.
  • Consume food using your rear teeth to prevent dislodging the dentures.
  • Consider using adhesives until you gain better control over your tongue and lips.
  • Gum soreness might arise as you adapt to your fresh dentures. Should a sore spot develop, rinse your mouth with warm salt water and visit us at Blu Dental for necessary adjustments.

Make sure to cleanse your dentures each day using either a gentle brush and soap with water, or a cleaner specific for dentures. Clean thoroughly on both sides to eradicate any bacteria present. Once you’re ready to remove them at night, either soak them in water or use a denture cleaner to maintain their cleanliness.

Dentures that are traditional in nature can be taken out. However, they require an adjustment period, have dietary restrictions, and do not provide any reinforcement for your jawbone. In the event that you are missing several teeth, we may advise that you consider using implant-supported dentures as a more favorable alternative. The reason being is that they promote stable jawbone health and an overall better quality of life.

You may experience some initial difficulties with speaking and eating, but these will diminish as you adjust to your dentures

Dentures require daily cleaning with a soft-bristle brush and specific denture cleansers, and they should be soaked overnight in a denture solution.

With proper care, dentures typically last between 5 to 7 years before they may need to be replaced due to normal wear or changes in your gums and jaw.

It’s recommended to remove your dentures at night to allow your gums to rest and to maintain good oral hygiene.

It typically takes a few weeks to adjust to new dentures, as your mouth becomes accustomed to the fit and feel

It is recommended to renew your dentures every five to seven years. We encourage you to visit us periodically for regular check-ups to evaluate and adjust your dentures for a better fit. Our team is also available to provide helpful tips for maintaining proper denture care and hygiene. Additionally, we can identify and address any potential issues that may arise over time to ensure your continued comfort and satisfaction with your dentures.
