Modern Dentures For a Lifelike Fit and Appearance
If you are missing all or most of your teeth, Dr. Lo can recommend one or a set of custom dentures. Thanks to advanced dental technology, today’s restorations are a far cry from dentures of the past. You can choose from several types of restorations, including full, partial, and implant-supported dentures. Each of these custom-made restorations will blend with your smile and restore the natural function of your bite.
Traditional Full and Partial Dentures
Traditional dentures are removable. The gum-colored plastic base will fit comfortably around your dental ridge. The restoration will be made from impressions of your mouth for a secure fit and natural look. A full denture will replace your entire upper or lower dental arch. A partial will restore a large number of missing teeth while fitting around those that remain.
If you are looking for a more stable and durable option, consider implant-supported dentures. Your dentist will place one or more small dental implants into your jawbone. As your bone heals, the implants will replace your missing teeth roots, forming a stable foundation for your entire restoration. Implant-supported dentures will never slip out of place, and they can help prevent jawbone degeneration by reestablishing the stimulation of your teeth roots.
Dentures Can Improve Your Quality of Life
Whether traditional or implant-supported, dentures can have significant benefits for your appearance, dental function, and oral health.
