Losing a tooth can be a downward spiral that results in more tooth loss. The reality is that if you don't replace a lost tooth, your jawbone begins to dissolve and support for surrounding teeth is eliminated.
Dentures in Poway, CA
A partial denture replaces multiple missing teeth, while still allowing you to retain your remaining healthy teeth. A partial is a removable oral appliance with prosthetic teeth attached right where you need them to fill in the open spaces. The replacement teeth are customized to restore both the beauty and function of your smile before tooth loss.
Solutions for Missing Teeth
Losing most or all of your teeth can feel like a hopeless situation. Your nutritious diet is all but impossible to eat or enjoy, while talking or interacting with others feels embarrassing. Full dentures can help you reclaim your lost smile and also make eating the foods you love a reality again. Here's what you should know about your options.
Traditional Full Dentures
Traditional dentures are removable and designed to replace all of your teeth. Now, you may be envisioning the dentures that your parents or grandparents wore in the past that were not natural looking and didn't fit very well. You'll be happy to know that we custom design today's dentures and make them with acrylic to give you a natural look, and a better fit than ever before.
If you're still concerned about movement or slippage of your denture while you talk or eat, dental implants can be used to keep your denture in place, providing the best and most secure fit possible. Dental implants also give you the added benefit of keeping your jawbone healthy and protecting it from the deterioration caused by the pressure of wearing traditional dentures.
