What Are Dentures?

For people who are looking for the most affordable tooth replacement option or who are not candidates for dental implants, traditional dentures offer a better quality of life.

With our in-house lab, we are able to offer our patients the best prices and, sometimes, same day denture services.

How are our dentures so inexpensive?

At Omaha Dentures and Implants, we have a denture lab right in our office! This lets us eliminate the need to use an outside denture lab and their marked up prices. Many traditional dental offices will charge 2-4 times as much as our office. Not to mention they often take weeks or even months to get the new teeth when our office can do it all in as little as one day. We also have more expertise than most practices because we limit our services to dentures and implants.

Our denture prices begin as low as $1,549. Schedule a free consultation now to get started on your new smile!

Frequently Asked Questions

What are immediate dentures?

As the name implies, immediate dentures are dentures which are placed immediately after the natural teeth are removed. These dentures help control bleeding and swelling; they act like bandages over the extraction sites.

What process should I expect when getting immediate dentures?

The process typically takes 6 months, but can take longer for some patients.

  • Impressions will be taken prior to your procedure with your natural teeth still present. From these impressions, your dentures are fabricated.
  • Procedure – your teeth are removed and the new teeth are placed.
  • Series of soft liners (soft re-fittings) over 6 month healing period.
  • Final re-fit (processed hard reline) at end of 6 month healing period.

What is it like getting used to these dentures?

This experience will be different for each patient, but it does require patience and practice. Your mouth will be going through quite a lot of changes over the 6 month healing period. Remember, it does get easier over time and we will be here for you throughout the process.

Some dentures look very fake. Will mine look that way?

Absolutely not. One of the common fears patients have is that their dentures will not look natural and people will immediately know they are dentures. Our highly skilled lab team will make sure you won't end up with "horse teeth" or "chiclets," just beautiful, natural-looking teeth. No one will know.

How will dentures fit?

The fit of dentures mostly depends upon the anatomy of the one wearing them. Full top dentures often fit relatively well, acting like a suction cup against the roof of the mouth. Full bottom dentures are known to feel loose and have a tendency to "float" in the mouth since your tongue and cheeks are continually working to dislodge them. It is for this reason that we strongly encourage dental implants with lower dentures.

How do I chew with my new dentures?

Cut your food into smaller pieces, chew small bites, and chew with food on both sides of your mouth to even out your bite.

I can’t taste as much with these dentures. Is that common?

Yes, the palate of a full top denture covers the taste buds on the roof of the mouth reducing your taste sensitivity.

The bottom denture is difficult to function with. Is this common?

Yes, bottom dentures are more difficult to function with than top dentures. The tongue and cheeks moving will push and pull on the lower denture and dislodge it. Talk with the doctor to learn if you’re a candidate for lower implants. They can help tremendously with lower denture fit and function.

My dentures feel like they’re becoming loose?

This is common with immediate dentures. Your gums and jaws will shrink down after extractions. This leaves space between the gums and dentures. We place soft liners in your dentures to fill in this gap. This should help your dentures fit and feel better as you heal.

What are denture adjustments and how frequently will I need them?

New dentures can have certain spots that rub slightly and create sore spots. During the denture adjustment, we will target the spot(s) on your denture that are bothering you, decrease the amount of pressure apply to the gums, and smooth them thoroughly. This is completely normal with all new dentures and one or more adjustments should be expected.

Is there a charge for denture adjustments?

We provide denture adjustments free of charge for the first 6 months after receiving your final teeth or permanent hard reline. After this period, there is a small fee to adjust your dentures.

How do I care for my dentures?

  • Clean them daily with antibacterial hand soap and either a very soft bristled tooth brush or denture brush
  • Store them in water when not in use

What do I use to clean my dentures?

  • Either antibacterial hand soap or denture cleaner and either a very soft bristled tooth brush or denture brush. Scrub them at least once daily
  • Soak them in a denture cleanser (optional)
  • Ultrasonic cleaner

Should I take my dentures out before bed?

Yes, we do recommend taking your dentures out before sleeping and also whenever possible throughout the day. This gives your gums time to "relax" and get natural, cleansing saliva flow to them. Also, if you're a teeth grinder, taking your dentures out will help you increase their functional life significantly.

Should I boil my dentures to clean them?

No! Do not boil the dentures to clean them. The heat can warp your dentures. If this happens, they will need to be replaced.

Can the dentures get damaged?

Yes, your dentures are made from acrylic teeth and an acrylic base. While these materials are very strong, they can become damaged. Be careful not to drop your dentures, especially onto hard surfaces like porcelain sinks, tile floors, etc.

One of the most common ways dentures are damaged beyond repair is when a dog (or sometimes cat) gets ahold of them. Animals and pets love to chew on dentures and can often damage them irreparably very quickly. Be extra careful to put your dentures up where your pet can’t get to them.

If the dentures are damaged, are they repairable?

Yes, in many cases they can. One of the best features of acrylic dentures is the ease and affordability of repair compared to other materials. And in most cases, repairs are be completed the same day.

Is there pain after the procedure?

Though experiences will vary, most patients can expect some soreness and possible swelling afterwards. Many patients come in the following day for their follow-up appointment reporting minimal discomfort. All patients are prescribed pain medication to help reduce any discomfort.

Why am I salivating (drooling) so much?

This is perfectly normal when you first have a prosthesis placed in your mouth. Your mouth senses it as a foreign object and is working to “flush” it out. This increased salivation should subside within 2-3 days.

Can I be put under for my procedure?

Our office does not currently put patients to sleep, however, we do provide both oral & IV conscious sedation. Click here to learn more about your options. The medication will provide relaxation and typically makes it so you don’t remember your procedure. For this, the doctor writes you a prescription, and you can pick it up at your pharmacy of choice. NOTE: You MUST have someone driving you both ways for your procedure, because of the sedation medication. You MUST NOT operate a motor vehicle or any machinery after taking your medication.

What are full dentures?

Full dentures are dentures that replace all of your natural teeth in either the upper arch, lower arch, or both.

What are partial dentures?

Partial dentures are dentures that replace some of your missing teeth in an arch. They typically attach to the surrounding, natural teeth for stability and support.

What are the advantages of dentures?

  • Improved confidence | Great looks with your new smile.
  • Looks | Dentures offer great looks and are easily customized for each individual.
  • Facial support | Dentures help to fill back out areas of the face that have sunken in following tooth loss.
  • Improved nutrition | Better chewing ability leads to better digestion and better nutrition.
  • Affordability | Dentures are the most cost-effective way to replace a full arch (upper or lower) or an entire mouth of teeth.
  • Improved quality of life

What are the differences between denture levels?

Our dentures provide improved wear resistance, better stain resistance, and longer warranties as you move up in levels.

Will I know how to eat with my new teeth immediately?

Just as you would need practice in order to get used to functioning with a prosthetic leg, it will require some patience and practice to become used to your new teeth. Practice and patience are the keys to improving with your new dentures as fast as possible.

Will I know how to talk with my new teeth right away?

Again, this will take some time, but with some patience and practice, your tongue and mouth will quickly adjust. "S’s" will be the most difficult to pronounce. Practicing saying words like “Mississippi” and “sixty-six” can help you get used to your new teeth. In some cases, patients may experience a small lisp long-term with dentures.

Can food get under my dentures(s)?

Yes, any prosthetic in your mouth can get some amount of food under it. The convenient thing about dentures is how easy it is to clean them. Just remove them; clean your gums and the denture(s); and place them back in.

How long should I take off work to recover after any extractions?

Usually 4-7 days is enough time for recovery. That being said, as there is always a chance of swelling and bruising, and you will need to get used to eating and speaking with your dentures, the longer you can take off, the better.

What are soft liners?

A soft liner is a cushion that is placed inside your denture throughout your healing process. It fills in the spaces which are created as you heal helping your dentures to feel and fit better.

Am I too young for dentures?

No, this is not just a procedure for senior citizens. It’s actually quite common for people in their 40s, 30s, and 20s to need to replace their teeth. Replacing bad teeth can be very beneficial to your long-term physical health, and having the ability to laugh, converse, and smile confidently with teeth you’re proud of can benefit your emotional health.

What items should I have ready for after my procedure?

  • ice packs
  • wash cloths you don’t mind throwing away
  • comfortable clothes you don’t mind throwing away
  • soft foods such as:
  • soups
  • yogurt
  • cottage cheese
  • smoothies
  • protein shakes
  • eggs
  • mashed potatoes (gravy optional)

Can I have the palate (middle part which covers roof of the mouth) removed from my denture?

Most of the palate of the denture needs to remain. Removing this also removes a great deal of stability and nearly all of your natural suction. A portion of the palate may be removed for patients who have denture implants.

What are tori? Do they need to be removed?

Tori are bony knots that develop in the mouth of many patients. They are not harmful, however, they can prevent your denture(s) from fitting comfortably, so your doctor will often recommend having them removed.

How long will I bleed after surgery?

Significant bleeding will stop before you leave the clinic, however, expect to have slight bleeding (oozing) for a few days after the procedure. In addition, you will most likely see increased salivation when we first put your temporary teeth in. When this extra saliva mixes with a little blood, it can look like more blood than it is. If heavy bleeding continues, please call the office.

An old home remedy that still works quite well to help clotting and reduce bleeding is to use tea bags. Just get a standard tea bag, get it damp, squeeze out the excess water, place it on your extraction site (or sites), and the bags will help you heal. Multiple tea bags can be used if needed. Replace the tea bags if they get saturated with blood. This process can be repeated as many times as you need.

My dentures are making my gums sore, what can I do for this?

There are many things that can lead to sore gums: high pressure spots, movement of your denture(s), and just regular wearing of the dentures.

  • High pressure spots | these are normal with new dentures and typically just require small adjustments
  • Denture movement | this can rub sores on your gums gradually. Securing your dentures with implants significantly reduces this issue.
  • Wearing dentures | dentures are foreign to your body. They are a fantastic replacement for missing teeth, but they can still aggravate the body after a long day. Consider planning time to remove your dentures and give your gums a chance to "rest."

Can my dentures rock?

Yes, it is possible. Dental implants often provide the stability needed with dentures alone. Click here for more info.

Denture adhesive may also be useful for some patients.

I can’t stand having the roof of my mouth covered. What options do I have?

Dental implants can give the security you need. Click here for more info.

Are immediate dentures removable?

Yes, they can be removed. They come in and out of the mouth and are kept secure either by natural suction for the upper or denture adhesive. Not everyone will have natural suction with their top denture for multiple reasons (palatal torus, flat palate, bone loss, etc.)
