Full and Partial Dentures
Dentures are a removable replacement for missing teeth and the surrounding tissues, and they have been used for decades as a popular treatment option. Many patients enjoy the convenience dentures provide since they restore the ability to speak and eat properly, and they can be removed which makes dental hygiene much easier to maintain. Our dentist in Beverly Hills offers full and partial dentures to patients seeking an effective way to replace their missing teeth.
Full Dentures Beverly Hills
Full dentures are used to replace all of the teeth in a patient’s mouth. Our Beverly Hills full dentures expert often recommends full dentures to patients who have already lost all of their teeth, but in certain cases where there are a few remaining teeth left, it might be best to have those teeth extracted so that the full dentures can fit properly. The design of dentures often involves false teeth set in artificial, flesh-colored gums that are made of acrylic. Stability is controlled by suction against the gums.
Our expert in full dentures in Beverly Hills offers conventional dentures, which can be placed in the mouth eight to 12 weeks after the teeth have been removed. We also offer immediate dentures, which are made in advance and can be placed in the mouth as soon as the final teeth are removed. No matter what kind of dentures you have placed, keep in mind that the gums will change over time, and you may need to have your dentures re-fitted or re-aligned in order to continue enjoying them.
Partial Dentures Beverly Hills
Partial dentures are similar to full dentures in that they hold false teeth in artificial gums, but our Beverly Hills partial dentures expert only uses them to replace a few missing teeth. This means that partial dentures can be used as an alternative to dental crowns or bridges. Stabilization is achieved by using a metal brace anchored to the natural teeth or by using a dental implant. Either treatment is effective in restoring your smile, so talk to our expert in partial dentures in Beverly Hills to learn which treatment is best for you.
