Dentures have been used to replace lost teeth for centuries, but those made today are much more advanced and comfortable than even a few decades ago. Advancements in imaging and dental technology have made it easier and more cost effective to create dentures that fit perfectly and look closer to natural teeth. At Laguna West Dental Care, we offer many restorative dentistry options, including complete and partial dentures.
Complete dentures are made to replace both the upper and lower sets of teeth. Once all teeth have been lost or removed, dentures can be created to fit comfortably on the gums and restore a complete smile. Traditional dentures use an adhesive to hold them in place when in use, then they are removed at night to be sanitized and cleaned. We offer both traditional dentures for our patients and All-on-4 implant-supported dentures that are locked in place for a more permanent solution.
If you have gaps in your smile due to missing teeth, partial dentures are an affordable option to restore your smile. These prosthetic teeth on a plastic base are designed to fit around your existing teeth, held in place with metal framework or an adhesive. Partial dentures are removable and should be removed at night to sanitize and clean them. Many people who are not good candidates for dental implants can use partial dentures instead to replace missing teeth. Partial dentures are also much less expensive than implants or dental bridges.
Dentures continue to be a popular option for restoring lost teeth. If you want to find the best solution to replace your lost smile, come see us at Laguna West Dental Care.
