Find partial dentures service in Azusa, CA, to replace missing teeth
If you need a tooth extraction or have missing teeth, you need treatment as soon as possible. Partial dentures are an economical alternative to dental bridges or implants, and they can be adapted to replace additional teeth that are extracted or lost. They are a good choice for patients missing multiple teeth or those with a risk of further tooth loss. If you’re looking for partial dentures ‘near me’, look no further. Dr. Luu is happy to offer partial denture services for patients in the Azusa, CA, area to restore their smile.
A removable partial denture is made with prosthetic teeth attached to a metal or acrylic base colored to blend in with your gum. These dentures are anchored in place with a clasp attached to your neighboring teeth. They are designed for easy removal for cleaning and storing for sleep. In some cases, Dr. Luu will recommend crowns on the teeth connected by your partial dentures to provide a better fit and more durable support to your restoration.
During your consultation, Dr. Luu will discuss with you the advantages and disadvantages of partial dentures. Dr. Luu will need to treat tooth decay and gum disease on any teeth that will support the partial dentures before fitting your dentures. Once your mouth is ready, you’ll make impressions of your teeth to craft dentures that snap in and out of place easily. You may need to come back for adjustments, and Dr. Luu can check for signs that your dentures aren’t fitting correctly.
Restorations protect your oral health
Typically when you bite, the biting force gets distributed evenly between all your teeth. When you’re missing teeth, your jaw has to readjust, and it adds uneven stress that can damage your remaining teeth over time. Additionally, your teeth can shift into the missing space resulting in a bite that’s more misaligned and damaging. Partial dentures will allow you to chew and speak with ease, and the prosthetic teeth will keep your natural teeth in place.
