Affordable Quality Dentures in Glendora, CA
Losing a tooth, or teeth, due to gum disease, tooth decay, or trauma to the mouth can impact a person’s smile and self-confidence. Finding an affordable way to bring back the smile you’ve been missing is of vital importance.
While various methods are available to replace a missing tooth, dentures can be the best choice for many patients as they are typically less expensive than dental implants. Dentures not only fill gaps in your smile, they give support to your face. Dentures are available in several forms. Partial dentures are used for one or more missing teeth and fit around the remaining teeth. On the other hand, full dentures are used to replace an entire set of top or bottom teeth, or both.
When patients think of dentures, many are uneasy thinking that they will be uncomfortable and look unnatural. However, with the expert care from Dr. Brianne Luu, residents of Glendora, CA, can rest assured that dentures can be comfortable and look very much like natural teeth. It may take some getting used to, and in the first several weeks, patients may have to train the muscles in their mouth to work with the dentures.

Taking care of your new dentures is important to keeping them working properly. The first, and most important, step is to ensure that they fit well.
