Dentures are similar to bridges in that they are realistic replacement teeth used to mask missing teeth. However, unlike bridges and crowns, dentures are removeable. Depending on how many teeth need to be replaced, you may need partial dentures or full dentures. If all the natural teeth have been removed, full dentures are a full set of teeth. If you still have some natural teeth, partial dentures are used to fill in where permanent teeth have been removed. Dentures should be cared for just like natural teeth. They should be brushed every day, and kept moist when not in use. Even with full dentures, you should still make sure you are keeping your gums and tongue clean as well as the dentures.
At El Dorado Hills Dental Wellness, we offer high-quality dentures to restore the function, aesthetics, and confidence of patients who are missing multiple teeth. Our skilled team, led by Dr. Rika Prodhan-Ashraf, understands the importance of a comfortable and natural-looking smile, and we are dedicated to providing custom-crafted dentures that fit securely, look beautiful, and enhance your overall quality of life.
Full Dentures: Full dentures are recommended when all of your natural teeth are missing in either the upper or lower arch, or both. These removable prosthetic devices consist of a gum-colored acrylic base and a set of artificial teeth. Our team takes precise measurements and creates custom-made full dentures to fit the unique contours of your mouth, providing you with a comfortable and functional restoration.
Partial Dentures: Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth are still present in your mouth. They are designed to fill the gaps caused by missing teeth, improving your smile’s appearance, and restoring proper chewing and speaking abilities. Partial dentures consist of a metal or acrylic framework with artificial teeth attached. The framework is discreetly secured to your remaining natural teeth, ensuring stability and a seamless integration with your smile.
Implant-Supported Dentures: For patients seeking enhanced stability and increased chewing efficiency, we offer implant-supported dentures. Dental implants are strategically placed in the jawbone, and the dentures are securely attached to the implants, providing a more secure and permanent solution. Implant-supported dentures offer improved stability, prevent bone loss, and provide a natural feel, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods and speak with confidence.
Our dentures are meticulously crafted to resemble natural teeth, creating a beautiful and harmonious smile. We take into consideration factors such as tooth shape, size, color, and alignment to ensure that your dentures look lifelike and complement your facial features.
We understand that adjusting to dentures may take some time. Our team will provide you with comprehensive instructions on how to care for and maintain your dentures. We will also guide you on proper oral hygiene practices to keep your mouth healthy and ensure the longevity of your dentures.
At El Dorado Hills Dental Wellness, we are committed to helping you regain your ability to smile, speak, and eat with confidence. Our custom-crafted dentures offer a comfortable and natural-looking solution for missing teeth, allowing you to enjoy a beautiful smile and improved quality of life.
