Affordable Dental Dentures
Some things, like eating and speaking, can become difficult when you’re missing multiple teeth. If you’re seeking a restorative solution to elevate your smile, dentures could be the solution you have been searching for. They come in many different forms, so you’re sure to find a solution that works for your tooth loss. Follow along as Dr. Reza and his team at Reza Dental Care walk you through some of the common types of dentures offered in our South Gate, CA office.
Before even exploring treatment possibilities, you’ll want to ask yourself, “why dentures?” Some of the most common reasons our patients opt for dentures are:
- Full-arch loss.
- Partial-arch loss.
- Need to improve chewing, digestion, and speech.
- More esthetically-pleasing style.
Everyone has their different goals, and at Dr. Reza Dental Care we are dedicated to helping each patient reach their objectives. That’s why we work with you to determine whether or not dentures are the best option for you. If they are, we will help you decide on a treatment course. Our denture offerings include:
Conventional, full dentures are most appropriate for those who have lost all of their teeth. Some patients need to have tooth extraction performed prior to being fitted for full dentures. It’s important to plan ahead, as complete recovery from tooth extraction could take several months. Once your mouth is prepared to accommodate the full dentures, you’ll be ready to start your dentures journey.
Made from a mix of acrylic and metal, partial dentures are designed to be functional while looking as natural as possible. Perhaps most importantly, they preserve your natural face and jaw structure. Partial dentures are ideal for those who still have natural teeth to preserve. Once you get used to them, you’ll also be able to eat with your dentures in place.
The beauty of dentures is that they’re adaptable. For those seeking a more solid foundation for their dentures, implant-supported dentures present one alternative. While you may not have the natural teeth needed to support partial dentures, dental implants will act as solid anchors. With these anchors and crowns in place, your dentist can comfortably fit you for dentures.
Remember that dental implant surgery and the recovery process can take several months. You’ll need to first allow your implant sites to fully heal so the titanium implants have time to fuse to the bone. Then, you’ll be set up for lasting success. At our South Gate, CA dental practice, we have a highly skilled oral surgeon come in to perform any dental implant placements, so you’ll receive the best treatment possible.
Getting Used to Dentures
The first few weeks, your dentures may feel a bit strange in your mouth. This is common for any oral appliance, including mouthguards and braces. Your muscles must learn to keep the dentures in place. Once your mouth adjusts to the foreign object, you’ll be able to better speak and go about your daily life.
