At Riverside Tooth Co, a denture is a removable prosthetic replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. With dentures, you’ll be able to speak more clearly and make new friends. Plus, you won’t have to feel self-conscious about your teeth anymore because you’ll have a great smile!
If you’ve lost all your upper or lower teeth and don’t want to wear a bridge or don’t want surgery or implants, then dentures could be your solution. You’ll still need to take good care of your dentures by brushing them daily and soaking them in water or a cleaning solution overnight. You also need to schedule regular check-ups with your dental clinic so they can check on your dentures and keep them fitting properly.
Losing teeth can make even the most routine activities difficult, such as eating or speaking properly. Missing teeth can also impact your ability to chew efficiently and cause additional pain to your mouth and jaw. Replacing the missing teeth with a denture can restore your oral cavity's function and health.
Patients may also prefer removable appliances over implants or other fixed solutions. Dental implantation can take several months to heal before a new tooth can be placed into the bone structure. A partial denture is a quick solution that can restore the function of your mouth while you continue treatment. An immediate denture may also be recommended if you are experiencing the loss of several teeth at once. Immediate dentures allow for comfortable chewing during the healing period.
For patients missing all of their teeth, complete dentures are a removable appliance that replaces all lost teeth and restores the smile’s appearance and function. A complete denture consists of a gum-colored acrylic base that supports a whole row of replacement teeth. The base of the denture is designed to fit snugly against the gums and jawbone for a secure fit, while the upper denture will cover the palate or roof of the mouth, preventing discomfort when the patient bites down.
A partial denture may be the answer for those with some natural teeth remaining. This device will help fill in the gaps where permanent teeth are missing and prevent the remaining healthy teeth from shifting out of alignment. A partial denture can either be fixed in place using dental implants or rely on natural suction to stay in place. In both cases, this removable prosthetic consists of false teeth set into an acrylic base and connected to the patient’s remaining teeth with clasps or precision attachments.
Dentures may be an excellent solution to fix your smile if you miss most or all of your natural teeth. To learn more about dentures, visit Riverside Tooth Co at 6886 Indiana Ave Suite B, Riverside 92506, or call (951) 686-2565.
