Full and Partial Dentures
In spite of the many advances in preventative dentistry, many of us still struggle with dental problems ranging from gum disease and tooth decay to dental injuries, all of which can result in tooth loss. Losing teeth can significantly affect your self-esteem, but it can also interfere with your ability to eat and talk. If you have lost many or all of your teeth, you may be a candidate for full or partial dentures. We also offer a special type of partial called an Equipoise partial which is specially engineered to prevent stress on the clasped teeth.
Full Dentures Agoura Hills
Extensive tooth loss that affects one or both arches may require full dentures. Full dentures are designed to replace all of your teeth. They consist of prosthetic teeth that are attached to a gum-colored base. The top denture is designed to fit your arch closely and secures using suction. Our Agoura Hills full dentures expert will craft your dentures using dental impressions and other images, which enable us to design a new smile that is comfortable and flattering. You may need to wear these dentures constantly in the first few days to identify areas that need further adjustment. Most patients adjust quickly and are able to resume their typical diets and lifestyles once they get used to their new teeth. Our expert in full dentures in Agoura Hills will explain how to take care of your gums and dentures to keep your mouth healthy.
Partial Dentures Agoura Hills
Our Agoura Hills partial dentures expert may recommend partial dentures if you are missing just a few of your teeth. Partial dentures consist of prosthetic teeth that attach to a gum-colored base, and a frame or clasp is used to keep them secured into place. Our expert in partial dentures in Agoura Hills will design and fit your new partial denture in a series of appointments. The teeth that the dentures will clasp on to will need to be strong and healthy, and they may need to be adjusted slightly for a more secure fit.
Missing teeth do not have to hold you back. If you have lost teeth, partial or full dentures can enable you to speak clearly, eat confidently, and smile happily for many years to come.
