Dentures are a brilliant way to improve the overall look of your smile. If you are missing most or all of your teeth, you will benefit from having dentures custom made for you. For some patients, they can also benefit from implant-secured dentures so that they are able to have a more secured prosthetic. At Ramona Dental Group, we strive to offer top-quality dentures that are durable, long-lasting and aesthetically-pleasing.
What are Dentures?
Dentures are a type of dental prosthetic that is geared to replacing an entire arch of teeth. Whether you’re missing all of your top teeth, all of your bottom or all of your teeth on both arches, dentures can be custom created to help fill your smile, improve facial structure and ensure confidence about your appearance. If your teeth are severely decayed, you may need to have them extracted before being fitted for dentures so that you are able to comfortably wear the prosthetic without it feeling tight or causing any type of pain. If you wish to have implants surgically implanted for a more permanent course of action, you will need to have a full exam and x-rays done. And your dentist will go over a surgical procedure course of action with you.
Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures?
Because dentures are a removable prosthetic that can be worn as needed, they are an ideal option for most patients who can benefit from them. For implant-secured dentures, a full consultation and series of x-rays will be done prior to having the implants placed. Some of the reasons you may want to receive dentures include:
- Dentures give the appearance of a full, bright smile if you are missing teeth
- Dentures are custom made for each patient, offering a secure and comfortable fit
- Dentures are long-lasting and can last anywhere from five to seven years before needing replacement
- Dentures can be secured in the mouth with implants for a more confident fit
- Dentures are made to look and feel like real teeth
