Dentures are an affordable treatment option for patients looking to replace missing teeth in a timely manner. If you are looking to replace missing teeth, dentures could help to restore the overall look and function of your smile. Here at Redlands Gentle Dental Care, our highly experienced dental team offer two forms of denture treatment.
Complete dentures are most commonly used for patients who are missing all teeth on their top or bottom arch. In a high number of cases, patients will require their last few teeth to be removed prior to dentures being fitted; this is done to promote good oral health. In such cases there will be a short healing time of around three months, allowing the gums to heal before the final denture is fitted. In the meantime, you will be provided temporary dentures if needed.
Patients who do not require a full arch of new teeth also have the option of receiving partial dentures. If a patient has one or more natural teeth which are still fully functional, then partial dentures may be used to help fill the gap, allowing healthy natural teeth to remain. Partial dentures are also a great option for ensuring that existing teeth do not become misaligned over time due to gaps. While the actual process of making the denture can take a few weeks depending on the type of denture we are making, the rest of the process requires no surgery or downtime.
Because of this, partial dentures are a popular choice for those looking to replace one or multiple teeth quickly.
Partial dentures are completely removable and work by using the patients remaining teeth for retention. Before patients undergo treatment, our highly trained and friendly dentists will assess that your oral health is at a condition where partial denture treatment can take place.
Dentures provide a fast and efficient method of replacing multiple teeth with just the one prosthetic. The advantage of receiving dentures for those with missing teeth is the increased functionality of being able to speak and eat normally. In addition to this, partial dentures provide prevention against teeth becoming misaligned and crooked.
