Full and Partial Dentures Van Nuys
Are you suffering from missing teeth? Tooth loss can be quite frustrating and can make it hard to eat what you want, smile and talk. Yet, tooth loss does not have to define you. Our Van Nuys full dentures expert can replace your teeth beautifully and comfortably with dentures that look just like the real thing.
When all your teeth have been lost or are at loss, full dentures may be the answer. Full dentures include a complete set of prosthetic teeth attached to a soft base that is designed to fit over your gums. This base keeps the dentures in place and must be fit precisely to the contours of your mouth. Dentures can also be supported by dental implants. Some types can be placed immediately after dental extractions, while others must wait until the tissues have healed. Our expert in full dentures in Van Nuys will help you decide which type will work best for you.
Van Nuys Full and Partial Dentures
Our Van Nuys partial dentures expert may recommend partial dentures if you are missing just a few teeth. Partial dentures consist of prosthetic teeth attached to a frame. The frame has clips or precision attachments that secure it in place using other teeth for stability. This can be a great option for patients who do not want or are not candidates for dental bridges. Bridges are a type of partial denture that is bonded to other teeth.
Once you have your new dentures, wear them exactly as recommended. Our expert in partial dentures in Van Nuys may suggest wearing them both day and night initially to identify any places that need to be adjusted. Once you have adapted to your new dentures and the fit is flawless, keeping up with good dental habits will ensure the best results. Practice good dental hygiene by brushing your dentures as directed and soaking them when you are not wearing them. You will also need to brush your gums and tongue to remove plaque and bacteria.
