If you’ve lost some or all of your natural teeth, dentures may be the right choice for you. If permanently replacing your teeth with dental implants is not something you can confidently do, McElroy Smiles by Design also offers the latest advancements in conventional dentures in Encinitas, CA. You can wear your new teeth confidently and brush, floss, and soak them outside of your mouth. Since your new teeth will no longer directly attached to your gum tissue, you don’t have to worry as much about standard gum disease, either.
Dentures can be made to closely resemble your natural teeth so that there is minimal change to your appearance. In addition to improving the appearance of your smile, dentures can help fill out the appearance of your face and profile. They also counteract the tendency of facial muscles to sag after significant tooth loss.
There are different types of dentures to consider depending on how many teeth need to be replaced. These include:
Full Dentures. If you’re missing all or most of your teeth, then a full denture will be recommended. A full denture consists of a lower arch, upper arch, plus a plastic base that matches the color of your natural gums and supports a full set of porcelain or plastic teeth. These dentures are held in the mouth by forming a seal with the gums.
Partial Dentures. If you’re missing teeth but have healthy teeth as well, partial dentures may be the option for you. A partial denture is a removable, gum-colored plastic base with porcelain or plastic teeth attached. This denture connects to your existing teeth and fills in the gaps to complete your natural-looking smile.
