Missing some of your natural teeth can be cosmetically unappealing and embarrassing. You do not want to smile when there’s a big gap in your mouth from several missing teeth. Thanks to the advanced technology of dentures and the steady hand of our skilled dentist, Dr. David Bistritz, your smile can be restored. With partial or complete dentures, the appearance and function of your teeth can be corrected. Partial dentures replace several missing teeth while complete dentures replace all of the teeth on the upper and/or lower arches. Call Aventura Dental Center in Aventura, FL to set up a private denture consultation today.
What to Expect
The procedure for dentures starts with preparing the patient's mouth, which may include extractions, cleanings, or filing the natural teeth. Then digital x-rays and physical impressions will be taken and sent to a dental laboratory where custom dentures will be created. Meanwhile, Dr. Bistritz will give you temporary dentures to wear. When the custom dentures are completed, Dr. Bistritz will adjust as needed to give you your most comfortable and secure fit. You may schedule a follow-up appointment after your dentures are first fitted so Dr. Bistritz can check and adjust their fit.
Care instructions for dentures will be provided by our office to help you keep your dentures clean and in good condition. Removable dentures can last 2 – 10 years with proper care, including regular dental exams to check the wear of your dentures and the health of your gums and mouth.
Complete and partial dentures are usually covered at least in part by dental insurance. Our office will contact your insurance company to calculate what your insurance will pay and the amount of your personal cost. Please talk to our office if you will be undergoing treatment without dental coverage, as we offer several financing plans that can assist you.
