When you have lost all of your teeth, or the majority of them, this could lead to major problems with the health and function of your smile, not to mention the beauty of your smile. To address these concerns, we can use a set of full dentures to restore health, function, and beauty. In today’s blog, your Newhall, CA, dentist talks about our complete dentures and how they look natural.
When Smiles Benefit From Dentures
This is necessary when you have lost all of your teeth, or at least the vast majority of them. At this stage, your ability to eat solid foods is diminished and your diet limited to soft items, which deprives you of not only your favorite meals, but good nutritional intake too. In addition, you could have trouble speaking clearly and feel embarrassed about your appearance, which further harms your quality of life. To restore function and beauty to your smile, you need a full prosthetic.
Creating Your Complete Dentures
We begin by first gently extracting any remaining teeth and then taking detailed digital images and x-rays of your smile. We ensure this process is a comfortable one, and the materials will allow our team to plan and craft the prosthetic. The device will consist of a full row of teeth made from materials like ceramic, which not only absorb bite forces and pressure, but can be color-matched to look natural too. These will be set in an acrylic base, which is designed to look like gum tissues and rest gently on your jaw ridge. When you place, you will be able to smile with confidence and eat your favorite foods again.
Supporting a New Smile
The removable options will be supported with suction and a special adhesive, and will need to be removed for cleaning and soaking. They tend to last about five years on average. We could also insert dental implants and attach the denture to them. The implants prevent the gradual breakdown of the jaw ridge, so it doesn’t change shape. As a result, the dentist can last for decades to come. We can help you decide which position is best for your smile and your budget, so you can smile without hesitation again!
