Losing the majority of or even all of your teeth doesn’t need to completely change major facets of your life – at least not permanently. If you want to get your full set of chompers back so you can regain the cosmetic and oral function experience you had before, call Advanced Dental Center at 843-627-4076 today to book a consultation to learn about our dentures options.
Because patients come to us with a broad spectrum of oral health issues, we offer a large variety of restorative dentistry treatment options and so much more at our Florence, SC dentist office. We can replace your teeth with any of the following options depending on your particular case:
- Partials that replace multiple adjacent missing teeth
- Fulls that restore a full arch of teeth in your upper or lower jaw or both for a full-mouth reconstruction
- Temporaries that give you back some of what you’ve lost until we can make your long-term custom tooth replacements
If you’d like, we can even attach a partial or full denture to dental implants. We offer both traditional implants and mini dental implants to suit your needs. Regardless of which dental implants denture option you choose, you’ll enjoy the many perks of a strong, sturdy implants foundation because they:
- Can help you regain up to 90 percent of the chewing power of your natural teeth
- Aid in preventing jawbone deterioration so you won’t lose your youthful appearance to a “sunken in” look
- Can last for many, many years or even your whole lifetime if you maintain your optimum oral health
We believe that investing in repairing your smile is always a worthwhile investment, but we also understand that you may have some financial concerns about getting the services you need. To give you some flexibility in payment options, we accept many forms. We even accept third-party financing from CareCredit and offer our own interest-free in-house payment plans.
If you do have dental insurance, we will do all we can to ensure you get the most out of it that you can. Our in-house insurance specialist can help you better understand your policy and even do a complimentary benefits check for you so you’ll have a better idea of what to expect as far as coverage.
If you’re able to fully cover the cost of your treatments up front, you’ll be very happy to know that we do offer discounts if you do so. We’ll give you seven percent off if you pay in full with cash or check and four percent off with a credit card.
We also make scheduling a little bit easier for you by offering some hours that other dentists don’t. We do close early at 2:00 p.m. on Fridays, but we otherwise keep the same hours that a nine-to-five dentist does but with some more hours thrown on top. We open early at 8:00 a.m. on every weekday and also stay late until 7:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
You can probably gather some of the positives of replacing your missing teeth on your own, but below, we’ll go into four ways in which getting dentures from our Florence, SC dentist office could change your quality of life.
Chew Normally Again
A lot of patients that get removable replacement teeth worry about their new chompers slipping or coming loose while they are eating, especially when they’re munching on difficult-to-chew foods like raw vegetables, certain meats, and sticky foods like caramel candy.
The good news is, modern dentures have come a long way and can typically stay right where you want them while you’re eating. We ensure your replacement teeth fit your mouth just right so you can enjoy your favorite meals again. You may even boost your overall health since you’ll be able to chew foods more thoroughly and digest them better.
Smile Normally Again
One of the first things that someone notices about you is your smile. Even if others don’t notice your missing teeth, if you’re not confident about the way your smile looks, you could be making less-than-ideal impressions on others.
But if you get your missing teeth replaced by us, you’ll be able to regain the self-assuredness you had when you had your teeth. Or you could even feel more confident than ever before because we’ll make sure your new chompers are made to help you achieve your smile goals. Stop hiding your grin behind closed lips when it’s time to say “cheese” for family portraits!
Speak Normally Again
You may not realize how much you use your teeth when speaking. For just one example, say the word “teeth” right now and feel where your tongue is at the end of the word. Without your front teeth, you’d have a lot of trouble replicating that sound.
By getting your missing teeth replaced, you’ll be able to speak more clearly and enunciate. You won’t feel like you’re mumbling or slurring syllables together because of loose replacement teeth or gaps in your smile. Whether you’re speaking face-to-face with someone or catching up with loved ones who live elsewhere, you’ll be able to speak clearly again.
Laugh Normally Again
One of the greatest simple pleasures in life is being able to chuckle openly about something that tickles your funny bone. But if you’re self-conscious about the way your smile looks, there’s a good chance that when you start laughing and notice that you are, you try to temper your reaction and hide your missing teeth behind lips that are pulled tight.
Stop letting these concerns hold you back from taking the joy in life that you once did. Exchange jokes with your longtime friends or even the newest grandchild or great-grandchild in your family. Smile wide, laugh openly, and reclaim the zest for humor in your life.
Don’t let your missing teeth compromise the simple pleasures in your life anymore – to book a consultation for dentures at Advanced Dental Center, call 843-627-4076 today. You can also visit us in person during our office hours or use our online form to book or ask questions.
