Are Dental Dentures Right for You?

The Dental Health Group Offers Restorative Dentistry and Denture Care

While dental dentures are one of the oldest forms of restorative dentistry, new advancements in dental care and improved technology have made denture care easier than ever. The Dental Health Group in Canoga Park can enhance your smile, eating ability, and oral health.

Our goal is to offer dental dentures that are natural looking and undetectable. In addition, our experienced dentists can help you transition to dentures for the first time or replace an existing set that has become worn or discolored.

How Can Dental Dentures Help Me?

Dentures are used when a person’s original teeth have experienced significant decay or are badly damaged. Whether you need a full or a partial denture, this carefully fabricated appliance is custom-designed for each patient. It replaces the preexisting teeth while providing support for the lips, cheeks, and lower face.

  • Modern dental dentures are fabricated to look similar to your original teeth in color and size.
  • Dentures completely restore your smile and solve many chewing problems.
  • Additionally, dentures can help reduce the risk of developing gum disease.

If you’re searching for a reputable and experienced dentist knowledgeable in restorative and cosmetic dentistry, The Dental Health Group in Canoga Park is ready to meet you. We are currently accepting new patients, and we invite you to schedule a consultation to meet our caring staff.

What Do I Need to Know About Denture Care?

Modern-day dental dentures are durable, comfortable, and long-lasting. If you’re new to needing dentures and understanding how to care for them, here’s some helpful information to get you started.

  1. The first step will be creating the immediate denture. This is a short-term protective appliance that is inserted into your mouth after the extraction of the teeth. This denture allows your gums and tissues to heal and prepares you for the second step.
  2. The conventional denture is custom-made for your mouth and is fitted after complete healing. Depending on your individual needs, you may be equipped with an upper denture that covers the upper row of teeth and the roof of the mouth or a lower denture that is horseshoe-shaped to accommodate the lower row of teeth and the tongue. In some cases, patients may need both upper and lower dentures.

We have two primary materials for making dentures and will choose the best option based on what you need and your preferences.

  • Porcelain: Porcelain is the material that’s been used for decades to craft dentures. It provides a natural look, although it can be more expensive than acrylic.
  • Acrylic: Many of today’s dentures are made in a dental lab from durable acrylic that sits lighter in your mouth and fits better than traditional porcelain. Hardly anyone will realize you’re wearing dentures!

Depending on the age you receive dentures, there is a possibility that over time, the appliance may need to be replaced or refitted to keep the jaw alignment normal and comfortable. While dentures are of course different from natural teeth, regular dental examinations are still necessary to check gums and tissues for disease or change.
