When you have tooth loss, dentures offer an excellent solution for restoration. However, with many types of dentures — immediate, full, partial, and implant-supported — it can be challenging to know which is most comfortable to wear and best suits your smile. Sterling Plaza Dentistry / Tom Alexander, DDS in Irvine, California, offers several denture types, and Dr. Tom Alexander will help you distinguish the differences between each.
Dentures are a tooth replacement device preferred by edentulous patients looking for a cost-effective and non-invasive dental solution. Dentures can consist of one or more prosthetic teeth — made from porcelain, acrylic resin, or a combination of these materials — supported on a gum-colored base.
Dentures are custom-fitted to match the surrounding teeth and fit snugly into the toothless gap for optimal oral function and a seamless appearance.
Complete or full dentures are ideal when you have lost all teeth in one arch or both. These dentures are fitted with a predetermined set of artificial teeth secured by suction, adhesives, or implants. If you have lost all teeth in your upper or lower jaw or both, full dentures are the most cost-effective option to replace your teeth.
Patients with only one or more missing teeth butwho still have healthy remaining teeth don’t need complete dentures. A partial denture, or simply a partial, fits into the edentulous gap (like a dental bridge) and is secured with clasps attached to the neighboring teeth. Partials are removable, allowing easier maintenance.
Both complete and partial dentures are designed after taking impressions of your teeth or arch. This is how the restorations can be fabricated to fit perfectly in your mouth. Well-fitting dentures are comfortable and remain stable when eating, laughing, or talking. This stability eliminates the embarrassment of your teeth wobbling or falling out when in use.
Whether you are in need of full or partial dentures, you can be assured we will provide the stability, durability, comfort, and function a denture requires. Our restorations are made with professional strength materials, cutting-edge technology, and artistic skills to develop something similar to natural teeth.
High-quality dentures yield many benefits, including:
