When it comes to weighing the cost factors of dentures, you may have asked yourself, "Can I afford them?" Social Circle, GA dentist Dr. Jones and the team at his office do all they can to ensure denture treatment, is affordable. The equally important question to ask is, "Can I afford not to have dentures?" Dr. Jones will explain the cost factors of dentures and the importance of seeking treatment for tooth loss.
Explaining the cost factors of dentures
It is important to check your dental insurance plan because most providers cover some to all of the costs of dentures. The type of dental materials used is one of the factors included in the treatment cost. Additional procedures can increase the overall price of dentures. Regardless of the type of treatment, our team is always available to assist you with insurance coverage questions.
Meeting the unique needs of patients with dentures
Just as we do all we can to meet the individual financial needs of patients, we provide various treatment options to meet patients' needs. We provide partial and full dentures to restore health and beauty to the smile. Partial dentures can replace one or more missing teeth. Full dentures can replace an arch of lower or upper teeth or both arches of teeth. With either type, patients can enjoy restored ability to speak and eat the foods they love.
The importance of seeking treatment for tooth loss
When tooth loss is untreated, several issues can develop. Teeth can shift into gaps from missing teeth. Tooth decay and gum disease may develop. Patients can experience difficulty pronouncing certain words. They also may have to eat softer foods due to tooth loss. In severe situations, the gums may begin to shrink. As a result, the facial structure can collapse.
Ask yourself, again, if you can afford to live with tooth loss. The answer is most likely, "no." Tooth loss can be detrimental to your physical as well as emotional health and wellbeing. It can cause embarrassment and affect your self-esteem. Fortunately, you do not have to live this way. Dr. Jones can help. Schedule a consultation appointment with him by calling 770-464-1900.
Patients may be missing teeth for many different reasons including trauma or malnutrition. Regardless, of the cause, partial dentures can fill the gaps in smiles. With removable or fixed dentures, the beauty and health of smiles can be restored safely and effectively. Dr. Jones sees patients from Social Circle, GA and beyond at our practice, Social Circle Dental. Patients seek Dr. Jones and our team for our holistic and biological approach to dental care. We understand, and are mindful of the effect the mouth, teeth, and gums can have on the whole body. Therefore, we offer safe, conservative, and highly effective treatments such as dentures to improve the health of smiles.
What is it like living with partial dentures? Patients can count on a restored ability to bite and chew properly, which can improve digestion. Missing teeth can make it difficult to pronounce certain words. Partial dentures can restore the ability to speak clearly. There are emotional benefits as well. When patients can smile confidently they are more inclined to enjoy socializing. This can increase self-esteem and renew confidence in their personal and professional lives.
Studies show people with attractive smiles are more likely to get promoted at work. Smiles are among the first features people notice when meeting others. Attractive smiles can instill the confidence needed to land jobs or go on dates. Smiling releases endorphins, naturally boosting the mood.
At Social Circle Dental, we observed patients with attractive smiles are more inclined to keep them healthy. Therefore, they are more diligent about brushing their teeth at least twice a day for 2 minutes as recommended by the American Dental Hygienists’ Association. Flossing becomes a daily habit to ensure food is removed between the teeth and gums. They begin scheduling and keeping their dental check-ups for cleanings and examinations.
Dr. Jones has been delivering healthier smiles for more than 45 years. If you suffer from tooth loss, he would be happy to meet with you and explore all of your tooth replacement options. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Jones, call 770-464-1900 today.
When you envision dentures, you may picture gum-colored prosthetics in glasses on your grandparents’ nightstands. The truth is dentures are for patients of all ages and have come a long way over the years. They can provide optimal function, comfort, stability, and beauty. Patients of Dr. Jones in Social Circle have provided rave reviews about their denture treatments. Dr. Jones is a skilled dentist who ensures patients have affordable quality dentures that look and fit the best.
As a holistic dentist, Dr. Jones understands replacing missing teeth can improve oral as well as overall health. Left untreated, tooth loss can cause teeth to shift out of place due to gaps from missing teeth. In severe cases, the jawbone erodes and the facial structure will look sunken.
Congenital absence, periodontal disease, and trauma can cause tooth loss. Fortunately, Dr. Jones can provide partial or complete dentures, depending on the extent of tooth loss. When missing a few teeth, he may recommend partial dentures. Complete dentures can replace an entire arch of teeth.
To determine the right type of dentures, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Jones. At your appointment, he will examine your mouth, teeth, and gums and review your medical history. We may take impressions of the mouth and x rays of the jawbone and soft tissues. We can use an intra-oral camera to examine conditions that may be undetected with the unassisted eye. We can then display the images on a computer screen to aid us in the discussion of a recommended treatment plan.
After your appointment, we send the impressions to a dental laboratory for fabrication of the dentures. Dr. Jones will check the dentures for precise fit and desired appearance before placement. With proper care and maintenance, dentures can last a decade a more. Therefore, it is critical to maintain healthy oral hygiene habits and regular dental check-ups. At follow-up appointments, Dr. Jones can check the dentures for optimal function.
When it comes to the cost of dentures, there are various factors to consider. The type of dental material used, the location of the dental office, the expertise of the dentist, and the type of dentures can determine the overall cost. We recommend checking your dental insurance plan because most providers cover some to all of the cost of dentures. Rest assured we have a knowledgeable team that can assist you with insurance coverage questions.
