Affordable Dentures
First let me say that I came to AD as a denture wearer of one year. I was looking for a reline, as I could not wear the denture (an upper) due to discomfort. I was greeted by a pleasant person at the desk and was not kept waiting long. The dentist saw me, assessed my current dentures, and was dead on. He suggested not wasting money on a reline because the fit was so off, and highly recommended a new denture. He did not pressure me into any one quality/price. Long story short, four hours later I walked out with a new denture, as they have their own in-house lab. Over the next few days, it became obvious I needed an adjustment, as I could not eat with it in. I went back, hardly any wait, and they readjusted it for me. I was only seen by the dentist once, at the initial part of the appointment. The rest of the time I was seen by very competent technicians. I can absolutely recommend Affordable Dentures in Lakeland for any denture wearer who needs new dentures.
Tips & Advices
This depends on the prosthetic.
  • Dental implants, when cared for properly, can last a lifetime.
  • Crowns typically last between 10-15 years.
  • Resin-bonded bridges typically last between seven  and 10 years. Tooth-supported fixed bridges generally wear out faster than this.
  • Removable partial dentures typically last around 15 years.
  • Complete dentures typically last between five and six years.
The entire process for adding dental implants could take as long as eight months. There are three phases:
  • Phase 1: Grafting. This may take between three and six  months.
  • Phase 2: Artificial root placement. This may take one to two  hours to complete and will take between three and six  months to heal.
  • Phase 3: Crown placement. This is usually done over the course of two visits, two weeks apart.
One dental implant typically costs $1,000-$3,000. However, the abutment (a connector added onto the top of a dental implant) and crown can add $500-$3,000. Multiple dental implants may cost $3,000-$30,000. A full set of implant dentures may cost as much as $90,000, though the average is around $34,000.
A dental implant is a titanium post shaped like a natural tooth's root that is surgically inserted into the jawbone beneath the gums. These posts allow dentists to secure a replacement tooth or bridge in the correct position.
Maxillofacial prosthesis is a subspecialty of prosthodontics. A maxillofacial prosthesis is meant to rehabilitate patients who have defects or disabilities due to trauma, disease, or those that a patient is has from birth. The prosthesis is designed to replace parts of the bone or tissue that are missing, or to help restore functions of the mouth, such as swallowing, chewing, or speaking. Other prostheses are created to protect the face during radiation therapy. Dentists that work with maxillofacial prostheses often collaborate closely with ear, nose, and throat doctors.
