Dr. Eric Ngo and his caring team create and fit dentures that fill in the gaps left by missing teeth and create a natural-looking smile.
What Are Dentures?
There are several dental treatments available to fill the spaces left by missing teeth. Dentures are custom-fitted dental prosthetics designed to blend with your existing teeth and present a natural appearance.
Due to technological innovation in recent years, dentures are more natural-looking and durable than they were a decade ago.
What Are the Benefits of Dentures?
There are numerous aesthetic, functional, and emotional benefits associated with dentures, including:
- Increased ease when eating, chewing, and speaking
- Preservation/restoration of facial symmetry
- Increased self-confidence
- A natural-looking, aesthetically attractive smile
- The only removable tooth replacement option
The Types of Dentures Available
Dentures come in two types — complete dentures and partial dentures. Complete dentures are appropriate when no natural teeth remain, whereas partial dentures work best when there are still natural teeth present. Partial dentures can be utilized instead of a dental bridge.
Before starting any dental procedures, Dr. Ngo and his team will help you decide what kind of dentures best suit your needs.
There are two kinds of complete dentures — conventional and immediate. A conventional denture is fabricated after teeth have been extracted. Dr. Ngo takes a mouth impression for the dentures after your gum tissue heals. The entire procedure takes between 8 and 12 weeks.
Immediate dentures, by contrast, are fabricated in advance and placed immediately after the tooth extraction. The obvious benefit of this treatment is that the patient does not go without teeth during the healing period. However, immediate dentures require a realignment in two to three months to account for any shifting of bone or tissue during the healing process.
A partial denture is suitable for patients who have natural teeth remaining. This denture includes a custom-fit plastic base that fits your mouth, with the fabricated teeth attached. Like complete dentures, partial dentures are removable.
An implant-supported denture is a combination of two dental technologies. A traditional denture tray is attached to, stabilized, and secured by surgically placed dental implants. Your implant-supported denture will be far more stable and secure than a regular denture.
The Lifespan of Dentures
With proper care and maintenance, your dentures should last anywhere from six to ten years. Other factors impacting the life of your dentures include aging and natural wear and tear.
