DenturesSometimes teeth degrade due to old age, injury, or gum disease. As a result, some patients may experience numerous missing or severely damaged teeth. With today's dental technology, patients may consider dentures to restore a complete smile as a replacement option.

Dentures are artificial teeth that replace missing teeth and can be easily removed for cleaning and care. Dentures are made to mimic natural teeth, improve your smile, and allow normal functions of talking, eating, etc.

Carefully Crafted Partial & Full Dentures

There are two types of dentures to consider: complete and partial. Complete dentures are recommended when all of your teeth are missing from the upper and/or lower jaw. Partial dentures are used when some teeth remain.

Our dental office only utilizes premium dentures to restore our patient's teeth and will offer the best recommendation for your circumstances. We provide full and partial dentures to patients who have lost one or more of their teeth. What's more, we go above and beyond to create dentures for our patients promptly and place them as soon as possible after damaged teeth have been removed.

Our Process

Our denture process involves patients arriving at our dental clinic for impressions, having their teeth extracted during the day, and receiving their dentures as soon as possible.

Following denture delivery, our dentist might call you for a few follow-up appointments to perform adjustments if needed. At the end of the day, we at Duhon Family Dentistry pride ourselves on the quick delivery of dentures. But, we can also work with you to identify the best time of delivery that is right for you!

Affordable Dentures

We understand the concern of costs when it comes to healthcare. Unfortunately, the costs associated with complete dentures and partial dentures will vary from case to case. However, Duhon Family Dentistry is dedicated to assisting you in reaching your oral healthcare goals. Speak with Dr. Duhon about your concerns to see if a financing option is available.

Medicaid coverage for dentures varies from state to state. It's a good idea to check your eligibility with a Medicaid caseworker prior to scheduling services with our dentist, so you know where your coverage begins. On the other hand, Medicare doesn't cover dentures in many states. However, many Medicare Advantage plans offer comprehensive dental coverage that helps pay for dentures.

"I found a dentist that takes Medicaid near me. See what he can do for you!"

Caring For Your Dentures

Our highly trained staff and dentist will help you understand how to care for your new dentures. After all, dentures require the same amount of care as your natural teeth. Therefore, you must give them the love they deserve, especially if you want your smile to shine for years to come.

Some of the tips that our dentist will offer you include:

  • Not wearing them when you sleep
  • Soaking your dentures in water or a denture cleanser to prevent warping
  • Not dropping them on hard surfaces, as this could result in breakage

Denture Adjustments and Sore Spots

Occasionally, full or partial dentures can cause sore gums. However, don't worry, as this is normal and can be avoided with simple adjustments. If you experience pain or discomfort while wearing your dentures, we at Duhon Family Dentistry will provide you with a quick denture adjustment. This will allow you to wear your dentures without sore gums or high-pressure points.

Duhon Family Dentistry values its patients' satisfaction. Our primary goal is to allow our patients to walk out of our practice feeling confident in their decision to trust us with their dental healthcare, along with a brand new, brilliant smile! So, get in touch with us today.
