Types of dentures available in Azusa, CA
Dentures play a vital role in restoring the smile. If teeth are lost or extracted, this can significantly impact the health, appearance, and function of the smile. With proper tooth restoration options, patients can restore their smiles. Dentures can offer these benefits. At Gentle Care Dentistry in Azusa, CA, Dr. Brianne Luu provides patients with various types of dentures that can be used in enhancing the smile, including removable partial dentures, full cosmetic dentures, and implant-retained dentures.
- Removable partial dentures – removable partial dentures are perfect for patients who need to replace one or more teeth in the dental arch. This restoration is made of metal and acrylic. It snaps into place, providing false teeth called pontics where natural teeth once were. This restores the smile with an easy-to-care-for restoration that can be placed or removed when needed. Removable partial dentures are often the most cost-effective solution for patients on a budget and are commonly covered in part or whole by dental insurance plans.
- Cosmetic full dentures – full dentures are used when replacing all the teeth in the dental arch. These dentures are made of high-quality acrylic and include fake teeth and false gum tissue. These restorations are held in place with dental adhesives or natural suction. These teeth are removed each night and soaked in a denture-cleaning solution to keep them moist and fitting correctly.
- Implant-retained dentures – implant-retained dentures take traditional full dentures one step further. These dentures are held in place with the use of dental implants along the dental arch. This option ensures optimum stability and strength, as the implants are maintained in place with the natural bone. Patients can enjoy all their favorite foods without hesitation with implant-retained dentures.
