|Advantages of dentures
Dentures are a set of artificial teeth used to replace natural ones lost because of disease or decay. There are two primary methods for fitting dentures.
|Advantages of partials
A partial denture is a removable appliance used to replace missing teeth. Partials help your remaining teeth stay in position, improve your ability to speak, and equally distribute chewing stress throughout the mouth.
|Dentures, partials, or dental implants
When deciding whether to use a partial, denture, or dental implant, there are three primary factors to consider: the number of teeth missing, the cost, and comfort.
|Insurance coverage for dentures and partials
Insurance coverage for dentures and partials varies in regard to the different types of policies available. The average policy, however, will not cover pre-existing conditions, but will cover at least fifty percent of the cost of most dental procedures.
|Speaking with new dentures
When you first get your dentures, it may seem as if you're learning to talk all over again. Your voice may change as the sound echoes differently off the denture material.
