Where patients in the Greenwood area can obtain affordable dentures
Dr. Christopher T. Griffin, DMD of the Greenwood community works closely with his patients to help them attain affordable solutions to the health and restoration of their smile. One way he can address tooth loss is with the use of dentures.
When patients hear of dentures, they often carry a negative connotation. Patients may remember their grandparents having false teeth and may recall them to be a very fake-looking, ill-fitting restoration. Thankfully, advances in dental techniques and materials have made dentures much more beautiful and natural-looking while improving the way they fit within the smile. Many patients can avoid embarrassing moments such as their dentures falling out during social situations and can reduce irritation with solutions such as implant-supported dentures. Patients have many options available to them and can help individuals in finding the methods of treatment right for them.
At the practice of Dr. Christopher T. Griffin, DMD, patients can ask questions about how affordable dentures can be. Patients will work with their dentist to determine if dentures are best for them, and then cost can be discussed. Patients with dental insurance may even benefit from partial or full coverage of their dentures depending on their specific plan. Our practice works with patients to help file the appropriate paperwork and determine if dental insurance plans can assist with the final cost and reduce the out-of-pocket expense for our patients.
There are different types of dentures, so patients are encouraged to take time to learn about the two variations including full and partial dentures. Partial dentures are best for patients who have one or more teeth missing within their dental arch and have existing teeth that can be used to anchor the restoration in place. These metal and acrylic restorations snap in and out of the dental arch and are a great alternative to bridges and dental implants. However, patients missing all of their teeth may only have the option fo full dentures which replace an entire dental arch. Discussing the options available with Dr. Christopher T. Griffin, DMD is the best way to start the restoration process.
