Better Smiles With Custom Full Dentures

We always take time to custom-made each set we create, returning function and beauty to your smile. In today’s blog, your Woodland Hills, CA, dentist talks about how we craft our custom full dentures.

The Impact of Major Tooth Loss

When you lose the majority of your teeth, this could limit the kinds of foods you can consume, which in turn limits nutritional intake. Difficulty speaking could occur as well, and you may feel uncomfortable with the appearance of your smile, which impacts your social interactions and quality of life. The changes to your bite’s balance could also mean painful disorders like TMD and bruxism could occur. A full set of dentures may be necessary to restore function and health, and help you smile with confidence once again!

Prepping Your Smile and Designing Prosthetics

First, we may need to gently remove the remaining few teeth to pave the way for your complete dentures. Afterward, we take detailed images and impressions of the teeth with digital scanning technology. The images we gather will allow us to design and craft the final product in a lab setting. A complete set of dentures will contain an acrylic base that is shaded to look like gum tissue. A full row of ceramic teeth will be placed into the base, which are designed to endure bite forces and pressure, and also offer a lifelike appearance.

Removable and Implant Support

Removable dentures will be held in place with either suction or the assistance of a special adhesive. They tend to last about 5 to 10 years, and will need to be replaced when your jaw ridge changes shape. They also need to be taken out for soaking and cleaning. With dental implants, we insert several posts per arch and then attach the prosthetic to them. This fixes the prosthetic in place, so it never slips when you eat or drink, and never needs to be removed for cleaning or soaking. Since the implants stimulate the growth of jawbone tissue, the ridge never changes shape and your new teeth can stay in place for decades to come, maybe even a lifetime! If you have any questions, then contact our team today to learn more.
