Dentures

Dentures

A denture is a removable appliance that replaces missing teeth and fills in the gaps in your smile. At Foothill Dental Care, there are two types of dentures, partial and complete. Complete dentures are used when natural teeth are missing on the upper or lower arch. They can be held in place with natural suction or an implant for even more stability. They are created from impressions taken of the patient’s mouth after the remaining teeth have been removed and the tissues have healed. 

Partial dentures are removable appliances that replace one or more missing teeth with an affordable, durable option. They fit around the and attach to the remaining natural teeth with clasps. The partial denture can be removed for cleaning.

When to Get Dentures?

Dentures are used to restore your smile if you have lost some or all of your teeth. Several things can lead to tooth loss, including age, poor oral hygiene habits, certain diseases, and traumatic accidents. Other common causes of missing teeth include:

  • Gum disease
  • Traumatic injury
  • Mouth cancer
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Teeth wear down over time
  • Poor nutrition
  • Smoking

The Benefits of Dentures

Improved Confidence and Self-Esteem

When you can smile and speak naturally, you feel more confident. A denture allows you to do just that and more. You can eat and speak without worrying about your teeth shifting or falling out. This can boost your self-esteem and help you feel happier overall.

Preserve Your Jawbone Structure

Dentures are a great choice if you lose teeth but want to keep your jawbone structure intact. A denture will help keep your face looking younger and longer by supporting your jaw and preventing further deterioration.

Help Prevent Oral Health Problems

One of the biggest problems tooth loss causes is bone loss in the jaw. Without a tooth to stimulate the gums, the bone deteriorates over time. To prevent this from happening or reverse the damage, consider dentures.

Improve Chewing Abilities

Finally, eating can be difficult when you have missing teeth. Even one missing tooth can lead to speech issues and other difficulties when chewing food. With a denture, you can eat whatever you want again without any worries.

If you are missing several teeth, we recommend using a partial denture or a complete denture to replace all of your missing teeth. To learn more about the benefits of dentures, visit Foothill Dental Care: Jean Lee, DDS, at 6581 Foothill Blvd, Tujunga, CA, 91042, or call (818) 353-1125.
