Find out how getting dentures can improve the health of your smile.
What are dentures?
Dentures are oral appliances that are used to replace all or most missing teeth. They come in two different forms: partial and full dentures. As the name suggests, partial dentures only replace some missing teeth while full dentures replace a full set of missing teeth. The base of the dentures, designed to look just gums, holds the teeth in place. Complete dentures sit right on top of the gums.
Partial dentures, on the other hand, have metal clasps and precision attachments that hold on the neighboring healthy teeth to hold the dentures firmly in place.
How can you benefit from dentures?
Dentures aren't what they used to be and they have certainly come a long way to giving people back their smiles. Better technology coupled with superior materials allow your Santa Rosa dentist to create dentures that fit more comfortably, look more natural and help your smile stay healthier.
Dentures are also one of the least expensive ways to replace all or most of your missing teeth, which can be an asset for someone who wants to restore their smile but doesn't have the money to opt for other replacement options like dental bridges or implants. Dentures allow patients the freedom to regain a beautiful smile without having to spend years paying off their dental work. This alone is a major lifesaver for many of our patients.
Lastly, dentures can help you regain the confidence you lost when you lost your teeth. With dentures you can feel comfortable talking to friends and eating meals again, which can be a major benefit to anyone who is currently dealing with the consequences of tooth loss.
