What Are Dentures?
If you are missing multiple teeth, The Tooth Studio offers both traditional dentures, as well as implant-supported restorations to restore your smile's look and function. Led by Dr. Shweta Gujaran, our dental team is experienced in working with both full and partial detachable and implant-held dentures for patients in Danbury, CT. Full dentures restore all of the teeth in the upper arch, lower arch, or both, whereas partial dentures are used when a few of the natural teeth are still in the jawbone. At The Tooth Studio, our staff can help you decide whether removable or implant-supported dentures are most effective for your dental issues and have them custom-crafted to produce a pleasant appearance and secure fit.

Am I A Candidate for Dentures?
Good denture candidates are individuals who are missing a significant number of teeth or who need to have several teeth extracted. Dentures work to enhance your dental function, enable you to consume many foods, and help maintain your facial volume. These pieces work most effectively when the gum tissues are healthy and there is sufficient bone for support. During your denture consultation, Dr. Gujaran will perform a comprehensive review of your oral health and review possible restoration options based on your needs, appearance goals, and budget. After we talk with you, our professionals will help you decide if dentures are right for your oral health and the style that could best fit your unique situation.
What Is the Denture Process?
Whether you are getting removable or implant-secured dentures, the process begins with digital impressions at our Danbury, CT office. These impressions are relayed to our partner dental lab, which will then create customized dentures to fit your needs. Complete and partial dentures are composed of lightweight resin, which is often reinforced by a metal framework. Created with high-grade materials, dentures are intended to copy the appearance of native teeth and the gumline. Once your appliances have been crafted and sent to The Tooth Studio, you will return to our office for a follow-up fitting visit. Dr. Gujaran will modify your appliances so they fit securely or latch them to already placed metal posts. We will also talk about the ideal ways to clean your customized dentures.

How much do dentures cost?
The cost of dentures at The Tooth Studio varies depending on each patient's needs and the type of dentures chosen. For example, partial dentures may cost less than full dentures. While dental insurance may cover some of your expenses, it's crucial to consult your insurance provider to understand your coverage better.
What are dentures made from?
Dentures are made using materials selected for their comfort and durability. The base of the dentures, designed to simulate your gum tissue, is typically made from a high-quality, medical-grade acrylic resin. Acrylic resin or porcelain may be used for the teeth, depending on your needs and preferences. Acrylic teeth are often more durable and less likely to break if dropped, while porcelain provides a more natural, tooth-like appearance and feel. During your consultation, we will discuss these options with you to determine the best material for your situation.
How long do dentures last?
The lifespan of your dentures will largely depend on your care and lifestyle, but on average, dentures last between 5 – 10 years. Over time, your prosthetics will need to be relined, rebased, or remade due to normal wear, natural age-related changes in the face, jawbones, and gums, or if the dentures become loose. It is also important to schedule regular check-ups at our Danbury, CT office so Dr. Gujaran can professionally clean your dentures and monitor your oral health to ensure that your dentures continue to fit well and remain comfortable and functional.
How do you take care of dentures?
Maintaining your dentures is critical for improving their longevity and your overall oral health. At The Tooth Studio, we recommend cleaning your dentures daily. If you have removable dentures, soak them in a nonabrasive denture cleanser to remove food and plaque and prevent staining. For those with implant dentures, clean them as you would natural teeth, using a soft toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste, paying extra attention to cleaning around the implants. Whether you have traditional or implant dentures, regular dental check-ups at The Tooth Studio are crucial. These visits allow for professional cleaning and ensure that your dentures fit well and maintain their structural integrity, contributing to the overall health and comfort of your mouth.
