About Removable Dentures
Adults may loose teeth due to oral disease, but customized dentures can restore the smile to a normal appearance. False teeth by way of dentures can be customized for the full mouth, or just some of the mouth, referred to as partial dentures. This dental restoration treatment, regardless if the dentures are partial or full allow individuals to regain a normal look and function of the teeth. Removable dentures allow patients to use their teeth and mouths with full function, including eating, drinking, and speaking. Unlike permanent dentures that are anchored into the jawbone, these dentures can be fitted for the the lower or the upper, or both, and can be taken out when needed. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Fort Mill in Tega Cay, SC use high quality dental laboratories to produce all of our tailored dentures, using the best materials so they appear natural.

What to Expect
Denture treatment begins with our dental practitioner at DentalWorks - Fort Mill prepping the patient's teeth to be ready, which possibly could include a full exam and cleaning, as well as extractions or fillings. After the mouth is prepped, imaging X-rays and molded impressions will be created and sent to our laboratory so that the customized dentures can be created. While the permanent dentures are being created, our dentists will provide the patient temporary dentures to wear. When the new dentures are ready our dentists will fit and adjust them as needed for a long lasting fit.
Removal dentures require at-home care instructions so they remain in proper condition. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Fort Mill will give these instructions when the patient receives their dentures. If kept, removable dentures can hold up for 10 years or longer. Our dentists recommend that patients get annual check-ups to verify that the fit of the dentures are acceptable.
Generally, dental insurance covers some of the cost for dentures. The total fee covered depends on the patient's dental policy, but our accounting department at DentalWorks - Fort Mill will contact the patient's provider to understand their costs. We invite patients to contact DentalWorks - Fort Mill in Tega Cay, SC to ask about our payment options in case insurance is not accepted.
