Full and Partial Dentures Pacifica CA
Losing a tooth is devastating in many ways, and unfortunately, it often results in more tooth loss. If you find yourself missing multiple teeth, eating becomes a challenge—not to mention the embarrassment you might feel about your smile when you’re interacting with other people.
Full and partial dentures offer solutions for patients with multiple missing teeth, whether it’s just a few teeth or all of them compromised.
When you think about dentures, you might be concerned that they’re like the dentures your parents or grandparents wore that were unattractive or ill-fitting. You can rest assured that today’s dentures are designed with you in mind. Our dentists consider your skin tone and the structure of your face to ensure that your denture looks and feels natural.
Implant-supported dentures are also an option to eliminate instability, so there’s no slippage when you talk, laugh, or eat.
It’s a whole new world for dentures these days! Here’s what you should know.
Partial Dentures in Pacifica
A partial denture is ideal when you miss multiple teeth, but you still have many healthy teeth. This appliance is removable, and it uses metal clasps to anchor healthy teeth and keep them in place.
Your partial denture has customized prosthetic teeth attached to it to fill the gaps in your smile. Our dentists in Pacifica design your partial denture so the artificial teeth blend seamlessly by matching your surrounding teeth.
You’ll enjoy the aesthetics, function, and confidence your partial denture gives you.
Full Dentures in Pacifica
If most or all of your teeth are missing or compromised, our dentists may recommend full dentures for you. Traditional full dentures are removable and made of acrylic to mimic your gums and teeth.
A snug fit is key because your denture relies on suction to stay in place. Our dentists work closely with you to adjust your denture and ensure a proper fit.
Though it may take some time to get used to eating and talking with your new denture, patients love being able to eat and smile with ease again.
Implant-Supported Dentures in Pacifica
Nothing is more frustrating than living with a denture that doesn’t fit correctly. Eating is difficult if it doesn’t stay in place, and talking or laughing is mortifying if your denture falls out!
Whether you’re considering dentures for the first time or you’re already living with an ill-fitting one, an implant-supported denture might be the right solution for you.
Your Pacifica implant dentist will place four implants into your jawbone that your denture will snap into. The implants provide stability, so your denture doesn’t move during important moments, making it easier to eat, chew, talk, and laugh.
