Leading Los Angeles Dentist Explains

As a Los Angeles dentist, I’ve found that many people have outdated ideas about dentures that were placed years ago:

* They were probably uncomfortable.
* They were so unlike real teeth that wearers were embarrassed to smile.
* They may not have performed well in chewing and often came loose.
* They didn’t do a great job of providing structure for the face (teeth play a surprisingly important role in supporting the muscles that keep it looking youthful).

Today, there’s no reason anyone of any age who has lost many teeth for any reason can’t be perfectly happy with new dentures that can last 5-10 years with proper care. But a lot depends on getting the right type made with the best materials, using the latest adhesives.

Even more important is an expert team to adjust the appliance over the months before a permanent fit, since dentures need to gradually conform to new bone growth and healing of the mouth after the remaining natural teeth are (painlessly) extracted. Our Los Angeles dentist and denture specialist team understand the critical importance of working with a local dental lab of master craftsmen to get a perfect, personalized fit (too many dental offices have this work done overseas to save a little money, with poor results for the patients).

There are several types to choose from, including conventional, full ones for both top and bottom; over-dentures that can be placed on top of dental implants to stabilize the entire jaw; and partials, which can be fixed permanently to natural teeth or be made removable. In addition, immediate dentures can be made to provide you with a temporary appliance so you can feel confident when you eat and smile until the new one is finished.

You (or a loved one) may have been afraid to visit a dentist because of past bad experiences. But what definitely doesn’t hurt is to have an exam to determine the state of your oral health and find out about the optimum options available with the latest denture technology.
