Dentures can be used to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. They are designed to be removed when needed, and they are extremely comfortable and natural looking. If you are missing teeth, our North Hollywood dental dentures dentist will help you determine if dentures are the best option to restore your smile.
Two basic types of dental dentures are available today, including full dentures and partial dentures. Full dentures are made of an acrylic base upon which the false teeth are attached. A conventional full denture is placed after teeth have been removed and all oral tissues have healed completely. This process may take several months. Immediate full dentures may be placed immediately after your teeth have been removed. Although you will have the benefit of having your new teeth right away, the dentures may need to be readjusted after your gum tissues have healed completely to avoid a loose or uncomfortable restoration once your gums have finished healing. Our dentist for dental dentures in North Hollywood can help you decide which type of dentures can best meet your needs.
As with your own natural teeth, good dental hygiene is also essential to protecting your dentures. Brushing them will remove plaque and food particles. Brush your gums and tongue with a soft-bristled brush in order to stimulate circulation and remove plaque and bacteria. Your dentures should also be kept moist when they are not being worn so that they do not dry out.
Dental Dentures Specialist North Hollywood
Dentures can last many years. However, you may need to return to our North Hollywood dental dentures dentist regularly to ensure your dentures are continuing to meet your needs. As you age, your mouth can change, and the gums and jawbone may also adjust and change after your teeth have been removed. Ensuring your dentures continue to fit properly is essential to maintaining good dental health, comfort and a secure bite.
