Restore Your Smile with Dentures in Milpitas
Missing teeth not only affect your appearance but also your oral health. If you have lost some or all of your teeth due to trauma, periodontal infection, or decay, dentures can provide you with a healthier and more attractive smile. Dentures offer several benefits, including:
Improved Eating and Chewing: Dentures make it easier to eat and chew food, allowing you to enjoy a wider variety of meals.
Clearer Speech: By filling the gaps created by missing teeth, dentures help you speak more clearly and confidently.
Support for Cheeks and Lips: Dentures provide support to your cheeks and lips, giving you a healthier and more youthful appearance.
Prevent Teeth Shifting: Partial dentures prevent your remaining teeth from shifting out of place, maintaining the alignment of your smile.
Restore Self-Confidence: Dentures enhance your smile, restoring your self-confidence and improving your overall quality of life.
Natural-Looking Smile: Custom dentures are carefully crafted to create a natural-looking smile that suits your facial features and complements your appearance.
Choosing the Right Dentures:
During your visit to Sethi Virdi DDS, your dentist will examine your gums, jawbone, and remaining teeth to determine the best option for tooth replacement. They will consider factors such as suitability, durability, aesthetics, and cost. Here are some common types of dentures available:
Complete Dentures: Complete dentures replace all the teeth on the upper and/or lower jaw. They are custom-made based on detailed impressions and measurements of your gums and mouth. Your dentist will ensure a proper fit and evaluate your bite for optimal functionality. Complete dentures can be further categorized as:
a. Conventional Dentures: These are created after the gums and jawbone have fully healed post-extraction, which usually takes several months. Temporary dentures may be provided during this healing period.
b. Immediate Dentures: Fabricated in advance, immediate dentures can be placed immediately after tooth extraction, eliminating the waiting period for healing. Adjustments may be necessary to achieve the most comfortable fit.
Implant-Supported Dentures: Dental implants are surgically placed in the jawbone and fuse with the bone over time. Once secure, removable dentures are attached to the implants. Implant-supported dentures provide a secure fit, stimulate jawbone tissue, and help prevent bone loss.
Partial Dentures: Partial dentures replace multiple missing teeth in either the upper or lower jaw. They require healthy adjacent teeth for support. Some common types of partial dentures include:
a. Clasp Attachments: These partial dentures have metal clasps that fit snugly around supporting teeth, holding the denture securely in place. Clasps may be visible when speaking or smiling.
b. Precision Attachments: Interlocking metal parts on the partial denture and adjacent teeth provide a secure fit. This option may require crowns on adjacent teeth and can be more expensive.
c. Flexible Partial Dentures: Made of thermoplastic material, these dentures discreetly fit around the base of teeth near the gumline, offering flexibility and a natural appearance.
d. Implant-Supported Partial Dentures: Partial dentures can also be attached to dental implants using stud or clip attachments for added stability.
Caring for Your Dentures:
Proper care is essential to maintain the longevity and hygiene of your dentures. Your dentist will recommend a cleaning routine, including the use of a soft brush, non-abrasive cleaner, and soaking solution to remove plaque and bacteria. Any discomfort or damage to your dentures should be reported to your dentist promptly. Regular dental checkups will ensure proper fit and ensure the health of your gums and oral tissues.
