Almaden Valley Partial Dentures San Jose 95120 Dr. Daljit Chhabra, DMD - AlmadenSmiles General, Cosmetic, Restorative, Preventative, Pediatric, Family Dentistry dentist in San Jose, CA 95120

When you smile, people are likely to notice your teeth. However, teeth do more than just give you a stunning, self-assured smile. In fact, they perform a variety of crucial functions inside your mouth. That is why you should always replace your missing teeth. If you are missing a few teeth, Almaden Valley partial dentures in San Jose, 95120, might be right for you. 

What are Dentures?

Artificial teeth, known as dentures, are used to replace missing natural teeth. Today’s dentures are more comfortable, functional, and durable than ever! Many people think of dentures as having big, enormous teeth that look unnatural and make it difficult for the person to talk clearly. However, thanks to construction, fitting techniques, and materials improvements, modern dentures feel and appear more realistic.

What are Partial Dentures?

When some natural teeth are still present, we recommend partial dentures. They are made up of replacement teeth that we affix to a pink or gum-colored base. The base is kept in place by attaching to the remaining natural teeth with clips or clasps. Partial dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth. They adhere to your natural teeth and help to restore your smile. 

We custom-construct your partial denture, so chewing forces are dispersed equally over the soft tissues and remaining tooth surfaces. We might advise adjusting your remaining teeth to assist balance these forces.

Am I a Good Candidate for Partial Dentures?

Partial dentures are an effective way to replace missing teeth, but they are not suitable for everyone. A good candidate for partial dentures should have a strong jawbone, healthy gum tissue, and enough remaining teeth to support the partial.

Partial dentures can also be an option for people who are not suitable candidates for dental implants. People who are not eligible for partial dentures include those who are missing all their teeth in a single arch (upper or lower). If you are considering partial dentures, talk to Dr. Chhabra to see if they are right for you.

Why Choose Partial Dentures to Replace My Missing Teeth?

When deciding whether or not to get partial dentures, it is essential to consider the benefits they offer. Partial dentures can restore both the function and the appearance of your teeth, and they are usually much more affordable than other options, such as implants. They can also be more convenient since they do not require any surgery. In addition, partial dentures can give patients a natural-looking smile and help restore some of their chewing function. You can easily remove partial dentures for cleaning, which will not require special care. Partial dentures are an excellent option for anyone who is missing one or more teeth, and they can help you to feel confident about your smile again.

How to Care for My Partial Dentures

While partial dentures are durable, they do require some special care. Here are some tips for caring for your partial dentures:

  • Rinse your partial dentures after eating to remove food debris and plaque.
  • Brush your partial dentures daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste. Be sure to brush all surfaces, including the inner surfaces, that fit against your gums.
  • Soak your partial dentures overnight in a mild cleaning solution to remove debris and plaque that brushing can’t reach.
  • Visit Dr. Chhabra regularly for checkups and cleanings. She can spot potential problems early and adjust to ensure a comfortable fit.

Following these simple care tips can help keep your partial dentures looking their best for years to come.
