Dentures can help Glendora area patients achieve a new smile
When patients are faced with tooth loss, it can be a troubling time. They may feel as though they do not look attractive, and may struggle with functionality of their smile. They may be concerned with misalignment that can occur from leaving these spaces untreated. They may deal with the embarrassment of their condition and avoid living their life to the fullest because of it. Dr. Brianne Luu of Gentle Care Dentistry in Glendora may suggest patients consider dentures for a new smile.
Dentures have come a long way over the years, especially in the last few decades. Dental laboratories are using natural-looking materials, and they are better at providing dentures that fit perfectly into the smile. Many patients think of dentures and envision their grandparents’ troublesome false teeth, but thanks to continued advances, patients can now enjoy a completely different type of denture.
Our practice offers three types of dentures for our patients, including partial dentures, full dentures, and implant-supported dentures. All of these are effective in addressing lost teeth and can be used by those who are not candidates for alternative solutions such as dental implants or dental bridges.
Partial dentures are used for patients who have lost one or a few teeth within the dental arch. They are made of metal and acrylic framework and snap into place using the existing teeth for support. They are easy to remove for cleaning. Full dentures incorporate false teeth and gums using special acrylics. They are held in place within the dental arch using dental adhesives or natural suction. Some patients who are experiencing issues with keeping their full dentures in place may also ask about our implant-supported dentures. These dentures are made to snap over dental implants, which are surgically placed along the dental arch and used for providing stability to dentures.
