What Are Dentures?
Dentures are removable dental appliances designed to comfortably and precisely rest on the gums that cover your jawbones. They contain a range of natural-looking artificial teeth built into a strong, supportive base.
Dentures are cost-effective solutions for replacing missing teeth. They are not permanent unlike other treatments for missing teeth, such as implants and bridgework. You can remove your dentures while sleeping or when you need to clean your remaining teeth.
Why Are Dentures Important?
If your teeth fall out due to injury, decay, or infection and you fail to replace them, you will find it difficult to speak, chew, and smile comfortably. You will also experience jawbone loss. With dentures, your teeth, mouth, and tongue will function optimally. You will also preserve your jawbone and facial structure.
Types of Dentures
Following your visit to Charming Smiles of La Quinta, our doctors will evaluate your oral health and dental situation before recommending dentures. The main deciding factors for the type of dentures you’ll get are the number of missing teeth and the number of healthy teeth.
The denture options available to you include the following:
Partial dentures replace a group of teeth, and we recommend them for patients with many healthy teeth remaining. For instance, if you’re missing all your back teeth but still have the front ones, we can design a partial denture to sit in the spaces left by the molars and/or premolars.
If you lose more teeth after installing partial dentures, we can add new denture teeth to fill out the new spaces.
Also known as complete dentures, these dentures provide replacement teeth for your upper and lower arch. Some patients may need full dentures for both the lower and upper arch, while others may need only one half.
We recommend full dentures for patients missing most or all of their teeth or those that will require teeth extraction due to damage or severe decay.
One of the main advantages of wearing dentures is that you can remove them whenever the need arises. However, if you don’t want to remove your dentures, you can choose implant-supported dentures. These devices connect to dental implants that fuse with your jaw.
Getting implant-supported dentures requires multiple visits stretched over a few months. However, they can last a lifetime with adequate care.
