What Are Dentures?
Dentures are custom-made teeth replacement solutions that resemble your gums and teeth. At the dental practice of Robert S. Nishikawa, DDS, we utilize partial dentures for people with a few remaining teeth and complete dentures for replacing a whole set of teeth in an arch. We offer a wide range of denture options to ensure that you may choose the one that best meets your needs, whether they are traditional, implant-supported overdentures, or All-on-4®. Our Los Angeles dentures will function just like your natural teeth and allow you to speak properly and chew food with ease.
Am I a Good Candidate for Dentures?
Although dentures are a highly effective dental restoration for missing teeth, they may not be right for everyone. At our practice, we will perform a thorough exam and consultation to ensure dentures are the ideal restoration option for you. Here are some specifications that make you a candidate for dentures:
- Have good oral and overall health
- Are missing multiple teeth
- Have severely decayed teeth
- Possess adequate jawbone density
- Have healthy gum tissue
Types of Dentures We Offer in Los Angeles
Dentures help boost the appeal of your smile by ensuring the gaps left by missing teeth are filled and preventing the shifting of any remaining teeth. Dentures also support your facial muscles and help to maintain a more youthful appearance. We offer various types of dentures in Los Angeles to cater to your unique oral health needs. Some of the dentures we offer include:
Full or Complete Dentures: Complete dentures replace an entire dental arch to restore function and give you a confident smile. Our friendly team uses complete dentures for patients that are missing a full set of teeth on their upper or lower jaws. Full dentures are made from an acrylic base that mimics the gums, and the teeth are typically crafted of a tooth-colored ceramic or porcelain. We work with you to ensure you receive dentures that fit correctly for maximum comfort.
Partial Dentures: Partial dentures are meant to replace several missing teeth in virtually any arrangement. Partial dentures are a great way of helping patients retain their natural teeth while allowing them to feel comfortable while socializing or eating. Partial dentures use clasps of metal or acrylic that fit around remaining healthy teeth to provide stability for the prosthetic teeth.
Implant-Supported Dentures: These dentures are anchored to the jawbone by dental implants for solid support. With this option, 6-8 implants are used to secure the restoration to prevent your dentures from slipping. Implant-supported dentures are fixed in place by the dentist and do not require adhesives, clasps, or natural suction for security.
All-on-4: For patients who qualify, we can stabilize an entire dental arch on just four carefully-placed implants. This ensures adequate support and chewing stimulation with lower cost and less of an impact on your smile. Our dentist will evaluate your jawbone structure to determine if you are a candidate for All-on-4.
Overdentures: Our dentist can also secure your dentures in place with implants while keeping them removable. Overdentures can be snapped into position to ensure added comfort and stability.
Our compassionate team will analyze your gums, teeth, and jaws and help you choose the ideal dental restoration. Our team will take you through all the available denture options and discuss their pros and cons. We will offer all information necessary to empower you to make a confident and informed decision.
Expert Denture Relining and Repair
Your dentures may break or become loose or ill-fitting over time or from accidents. In addition, the mouth and gums also change shape owing to bone loss, weight loss, illness, and even aging. Our in-house lab allows us to effectively reline and repair traditional dentures to help you enjoy all the benefits of functional teeth. Our dentists can also assist in replacing old dentures that no longer function as they should and help you select a new restoration from our denture options.
What Are the Benefits of Dentures?
Replacing missing or lost teeth with dentures offers many advantages. Dentures will improve your oral health, your smile aesthetics, and quality of life. Some of the benefits you can expect with our dentures include:
- Improving capabilities when biting, chewing, and speaking
- Keeping neighboring teeth from shifting
