What are Dentures?

Dentures are custom-made plastic devices that hold natural-looking tooth replacements. They are designed to look just like a normal set of teeth. They restore your ability to chew foods and can improve your self-esteem with a beautiful new smile.

Types of Dentures

Full Dentures – If you have lost all of your upper or lower teeth, your Santa Rosa dentist may recommend full dentures.

Partial Dentures – If you are missing one or a few teeth in one location, you may be a candidate for a partial denture which fits around your existing natural teeth.

Implant-Supported Dentures – Your dentist may also recommend using dental implants to provide an anchor for dentures. This will help to keep dentures from slipping in the mouth and can create a better fit.

What to Expect with Dentures

Your Santa Rosa dentist will help guide you on the proper care and maintenance for your dentures. It may take a few weeks or months to become used to your new dentures, but they should provide a comfortable fit. Your dentures can help you chew and speak clearly again while brightening your smile and taking years off your appearance.

Brush your dentures each night and soak them in a denture cleaning solution. This can help keep them free from stains and odors that could build up over time. Visit your dentist every 6 months for a checkup to make sure your dentures still fit properly. If they have become loose, they may need relining or refitting.

Talk to your Santa Rosa dentist to find out if dentures may be right for you. The friendly staff at Santa Rosa Dental Care offer dentures and a wide menu of cosmetic dentistry options to restore your teeth and your smile. Schedule an appointment today by calling (707) 921-1970.
