Whether due to decay, disease, age or injury, tooth loss is a serious condition that can impact your overall oral health. At Haake Family Dental, we are dedicated to helping our patients restore their smiles to the fullest. That’s why we offer high-quality dentures for our patients in Overland Park and surrounding areas. Depending on your needs and treatment goals, we offer traditional dentures, fixed dentures and denture stabilization.
Dentures are removable prosthetics used to replace missing teeth. Dentures are made from a high-quality acrylic base and natural-looking artificial teeth. We offer two types of dentures depending on the extent of your tooth loss: full and partial. Unlike implants, which are surgically placed in your jaw, dentures are worn over the gums and provide the function of a full set of teeth. They can be taken out at night or to clean.
To ensure a secure grip, you may use special denture adhesive pastes. While wearing your dentures, you will be able to eat and speak normally. Just be sure to avoid overly hard, chewy or sticky foods, as they may damage your dentures or cause your dentures to come loose.
With proper care, your dentures can last for an average of five to eight years before needing to be replaced. Over time, the natural structures of your gums and jawbone will change due to tooth loss. Your dentures will need to be relined to ensure a comfortable and secure fit as your mouth changes. Be sure to see our dental team for a regular checkup to assess the condition of your dentures.
Also known as implant-supported dentures, fixed dentures are anchored to your jawbone with dental implants. We can attach specially made dentures to the implants to firmly secure the prosthesis, allowing for a more natural restoration. Unlike traditional removable dentures, your fixed dentures will not slip while in use, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods without the fear of your dentures coming loose. For fixed dentures, we offer All-on-4 dental implants. All-on-4 implants provide a stable base for your denture.
Each case is unique, and the costs of your fixed dentures will depend on your needs and desired treatment goals. Schedule a consultation with our dental team to discuss your options. Be sure to ask about our financing options. We do everything we can to make our care as accessible and affordable as possible.
For patients who already have dentures, we may recommend denture stabilization. Our team can retrofit your existing dentures with snap-on attachments and anchor them to dental implants surgically placed in your jaw. This will provide a stable foundation for your dentures for more natural chewing and speaking. You will be able to easily remove your dentures at night or to clean.
