What Are Dentures?
Dentures are basically replacements for your missing teeth, as well as the surrounding tissues. These replacements are removable, providing you with a level of convenience not afforded with all types of dental items. There are two basic types of dentures available to you at our Los Angeles dentist, referred to as complete dentures and partial dentures. Complete dentures are designed to replace all of your teeth and attach directly to the jaw and gumline. Before these dentures are placed into your mouth, we complete a molding of your teeth to ensure that the dentures are fitted properly.
When these dentures are placed into your mouth, you’ll immediately feel the difference. Both your talking and chewing will be completely restored, allowing you to finish daily activities without much trouble. As is the case with partial dentures, complete dentures are removable. As for partial dentures, these are applicable for anyone who’s missing just a few of their teeth. The appliance is molded in a way that allows it to be directly fitted over the area where the teeth are missing. While the remainder of your healthy teeth will be left uncovered by these dentures, the dentures will provide you with a natural looking smile. This is a solution for anyone who doesn’t wish to make use of bridges to fill in these gaps.
Benefits of Dentures
There are plenty of benefits provided to you upon receiving either complete or partial dentures, most of which are obvious. For one, your ability to chew and bite will be greatly improved, especially if you require complete dentures. You also won’t have nearly as many restrictions on the types of foods you can eat. Other benefits that are just as important include
- Providing your face with a fuller appearance
- Lessening some of the speech problems caused by teeth that are missing
- Can be readily removed when it’s time to brush your teeth
- Protects any of your remaining teeth from extra wear and tear
