Dentures

Losing teeth can make life less enjoyable. When you don’t have teeth, your bone and facial muscles degenerate, making you look older. Your diet declines, and speaking becomes challenging. We can use numerous viable solutions for replacing missing teeth to improve one’s smile. Dentures are an excellent  tooth replacement solution that are custom fit for you. If you are looking for Dentures come to Almaden Valley Dentures in San Jose 95120.

 

What are Dentures?

If you have experienced the loss of multiple teeth, dentures may be what you need to restore your smile’s function, health, and beauty. Many people are familiar with the term “dentures,” but they may not be sure what they are exactly. Dentures are artificial teeth that you wear to replace natural teeth that have been lost. Two main types of dentures are available: partial and complete. 

  • Partial Dentures: We recommend partial dentures when multiple teeth are missing, but some natural teeth still remain. They consist of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored base. A partial denture often includes a thin framework or clasps that attach to the remaining teeth to stabilize the denture. 
  • Complete Dentures: Complete dentures, on the other hand, replace all teeth in a dental arch. Depending on which teeth are missing, you may need a complete denture for the upper arch, lower arch, or both arches. The base is held in place by suction or adhesive, covering the entire upper or lower jaw arch.

Dentures are custom-made to fit each patient, and you can remove them for cleaning. Partial and complete dentures can significantly improve the appearance and function of the mouth, and they are an effective way to replace missing teeth. No matter what type of dentures you need, Dr. Chhabra will ensure that your oral appliance fits comfortably and looks natural.

 

What are the Benefits of Dentures?

There are many benefits to dentures, including the fact that they are relatively affordable and easy to care for. Dentures can also be customized to match the color and shape of your natural teeth, making them virtually indistinguishable from your real teeth. In addition, dentures can help to improve your speech and eating habits by restoring your bite and preventing food from slipping between your teeth. Dentures may be the right choice for you whether you are looking for a temporary or permanent solution to missing teeth.

 

Denture Procedure in San Jose, CA

Dr. Daljit Chhabra is a skilled dentist who has extensive experience fitting patients for dentures. During a denture consultation, Dr. Chhabra will assess your oral health needs and make recommendations accordingly. 

She will then take measurements and impressions of your mouth to create a custom denture that fits comfortably and securely. The denture process typically takes several weeks from start to finish, and you can expect to return for multiple appointments to ensure a perfect fit. 

Ultimately, however, the denture procedure is relatively straightforward, and Dr. Chhabra will ensure that patients are well-informed and comfortable every step of the way.

 

Care for Your Dentures

Although dentures are durable, they require special care to stay clean and prevent damage. Here are some tips for caring for dentures: 

  • Brush dentures at least once a day with a denture toothbrush. Use denture cleaner or mild soap and water. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or toothpaste, as they can damage dentures. 
  • Rinse dentures after each meal to remove food particles and plaque. 
  • Soak dentures overnight in a denture cleanser or water. Soaking helps to keep them moist and prevents them from drying out or becoming cracked. 
  • Schedule regular checkups with your dentist to ensure dentures are still fitting properly and for any signs of damage.  

Dentures may need to be replaced every five to seven years as they can change shape over time. Following these simple tips can help ensure that your dentures stay clean and in good condition for many years.
