What are Dentures?immediate dentures

They are a removable substitution for missing teeth and encompassing soft tissues. The two types are – complete and partial.

Complete plates are utilized when all of the teeth are missing, while partials are utilized when some normal healthy teeth remain and others are missing. Partials usually have metal framework in them to provide strength and stability.

What are dentures made of? They are made of acrylic and sometimes a stronger resin based acrylic. Partials will also have metal in them for strength.

They give a few corrective advantages.

  • They fill in holes left by missing teeth
  • They improve the facial structure
  • They prevent your good teeth from moving
  • They restore your chewing function and help with digestion of food
  • They make you feel good about yourself
  • They help restore your oral health



Complete or Full Plates

immediate dentures


Complete dentures can be either “permanent” or “immediate.”

Immediates are for patients with severe tooth decay or gum disease and who are destined to lose all their teeth. They are made before the teeth have been extracted.

They are also known as same day dentures because you leave with these dentures in your mouth after the teeth are removed.  These dentures may feel awkward at first, but in a week or two you will adjust to them.

Obviously they will take some time getting used as the tissue heals but at least you will have teeth to smile and chew soft foods. These are only made with affordable dentures because they are only temporary for 4-8 months while the gums and bones heal.

If you are looking for extractions and dentures in the same day then you found the right practice in Rockville Maryland.

Dental implants can be placed at the same time as tooth extractions to make the snap in dentures. Patients that get snap in plates never have to use glue and never have to worry about their teeth falling out.

Finally, Permanent dentures are made as replacement teeth or once the and the gum tissue has healed from extractions. Healing takes about 8-12 weeks. Then new plates can be made to the ideal fit and aesthetics for the patient. We make only premium dentures for our permanents.




partial denture

Partials are utilized when at least a few natural remaining teeth in the arch are stable and healthy.  We will remove plaque from the teeth to ensure they are viable.

Getting used to partial dentures should not be difficult. It may feel like a mouth full at first but within a few days to a week you should become accustomed to the new hardware in your mouth.

They should be comfortable and not painful. Wondering what partial dentures cost? Keep reading to learn more.

If you are only missing one or two teeth, then A fixed dental bridge will be more practical. It replaces at least one teeth by putting crowns on the teeth on either side of the space and joining fake teeth to them.

Wondering how to cope with partial dentures? Partial dentures should fit snugly on the teeth. They should not move around or pop off of the teeth when chewing or talking.

If they do then your partial may not fit well. You can try using denture glue. If it still moves around and or hurts the gums then chances are you need a new partial.

Why do partial dentures not fit?

If you have sore gums from partial dentures and saying “my partial denture hurts” then chances are the partial does not fit your mouth anymore. Partials are made to precisely fit the mouth. If it doesn’t fit anymore then either the teeth moved or the gums shrunk.



How Much do Premium Dentures Cost?

You are probably wondering how much do dentures cost without insurance?

The cost of dentures can vary depending upon the material used and types of dentures and the quality of the dentures.

Typically a cheap set of permanent plates cost $2000 whereby premium ones cost $6000. However you get what you pay for.

A cheap set of plates may not look like natural teeth, and they will look fake, and probably will not fit very well leading to sores on the gums and problems.

Of course the cost of teeth removal and dentures will vary based on how many teeth need to be removed and whether or not you will require immediate dentures.

If you need teeth extractions, the cost of dentures will also increase with the number of extractions. You may also want temporary dentures or immediate dentures while you are healing from the tooth removal.

Premium dentures are made with top of the line teeth that look natural and will be comfortable and enjoyable to wear. At Rockville Dental Arts we make only premium ones because we want our family of patients to be happy with their teeth and not have problems.

What do partials cost? The cost of partial dentures is less than completes.

They can range from $500 to $3000 or more depending on the type of partial. Chrome-plated dentures cost more than acrylic dentures.

If you want to know exactly how much do dentures cost for your mouth then come in for a consultation and we can review with you your options. Of course, you must know that false teeth cost way less than implanted teeth.

snap in dentures

For most full cases especially on the lower jaw we recommend 2 dental implants to secure the plate, also known as snap in’s.  These implant supported dentures cost around $8000 per arch.
