When you lose a tooth, it is important to consider all of your options when it comes to choosing a replacement. Dentures are the most cost effective solution and ideal for replacing an entire mouth of teeth. With recent advancements in technology, they made today fit better and look more natural than ever. You don’t have to worry about your teeth falling out or your teeth looking fake. At Designed Smiles in Brea, CA, we offer our patients full sets, partials, and implant supported for all needs and comfort levels. Whether you have lost your teeth due to age, genetics, or decay, dentures are a great restorative choice when dental implants or dental bridges are out of the question.
The procedure to your new set of teeth is quite simple. Your dentist will give you an evaluation of your mouth, and if any more teeth need to be extracted, that will need to happen before your permanent set is made. Once your gums are completely healed from any extractions, you will be ready for your dentures. Impressions of your gums will be taken and sent off to the lab for a custom fit of your mouth. During this period, you will be given a set of temporaries to wear until yours permanent ones are ready. This will allow you some time to get used to wearing them, eating with them, and talking with them. Once your permanent set is ready, your dentist will ensure that they fit correctly and you will be ready to go.
Regaining the ability to eat and talk normally is not the only benefit, you will have a new smile. Whether you were missing a mouth full of teeth, or one here and there, dentures will help you regain the confidence in your smile.
Dentures are usually thought of as a last resort as far as restorative dentistry goes. Dentists will always recommend dental implants as the best solution for missing teeth because they maintain the bone mass in your jaw, but implants can be very expensive, especially to replace an entire mouth. Patients usually opt for dentures due to their low cost. If you are missing an entire jaw full of teeth, full sets are available. For just a few missing teeth, partials are available. Lastly, implant supported dentures are available for patients who don’t want to deal with the hassle of removing them or messing with adhesives. This will require 4 dental implants to be surgically placed in your jaw with the dentures attached. They won’t be able to be removed unless by your dentist.
