Azusa area Dentist describes Dentures for tooth replacement
When patients hear of dentures, they often think of the ill-fitting, fake-looking restorations their great-grandparents used to wear. Thanks to continued advances in materials and techniques, dentures have come a long way since then. Dr. Brianne Luu is a cosmetic dentist who has seen the advantages dentures (full and partial) can provide in restoring health and wellness, as well as beauty and function. Patients in and around the Azusa area are welcome to learn about tooth replacement options available at Gentle Care Dentistry.
Dr. Brianne Luu offers her patients a wide selection of tooth replacement solutions including dental implants, bridges, and dentures. Dental implants can be costly and are fabricated of titanium. They are placed into the jawbone during oral surgery and restored over the top with a custom dental crown. They are permanent, but may not be suited for everyone.
Another alternative to dentures is dental bridges. Dental bridges are made of porcelain and use the adjacent teeth to support their structure, which includes crowns and false teeth fused into one unit. They are a great alternative to dentures because they are fixed restorations, but are more affordable than dental implants. However, some patients are best suited for easy-to-use dentures such as full dentures or partial dentures.
Full dentures are made of acrylics and restore the entire arch of teeth. They are held in place with dental implants or dental adhesives and they allow patients to enjoy all their favorite foods once again. Partial dentures are similar but include a metal framework that snaps into the dental arch, using the existing teeth for stabilization.
Dr. Brianne Luu wants to ensure her patients have a variety of solutions available to them when considering restorative services. This is why her practice offers a wide range of tooth replacement options for individuals to consider when repairing their smiles. Dentures are just one of many offerings and may be right for you. Gentle Care Dentistry encourages you to contact their facility and learn about restorative solutions such as dentures for replacing missing teeth.
