Denture and Partials at Temescal Dental
For patients looking to quickly replace missing teeth, dentures and partials have long been the traditional treatment. At Temescal Dental of Corona, we use these solutions to help patients regain oral function after the loss of teeth from one or both arches.
Choosing Your Restoration Option
Regardless of why your smile is incomplete, finding the appropriate restoration for missing teeth is an important step in helping patients regain confidence in the way their smile looks and functions. At Temescal Dental, we offer full and partial dentures. Full dentures are recommended when there are no teeth left in the mouth whereas partial dentures are used when teeth are missing from only one arch.
When picking a full denture, you have a number of choices in regards to how they’re produced and when they’re placed. Traditional dentures are produced right after all the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed. Usually, the recovery period requires about four to six weeks, requiring that patients go without teeth for until their final denture is complete.
For those who would rather not have to live without a complete smile, immediate dentures can be made before teeth are extracted and can be used as soon as teeth are extracted. While this option eliminates the risk of patients living without teeth, you will need to return to our office for adjustments as the gum tissue heals.
Although dentures can offer some short-term solutions, they do require diligent care and maintenance on the part of the patient. For individuals who find that they need a more stable solution, we work with local implant dentists to create full mouth dental implant solutions.
Why Should You Consider Dentures?
There are different factors as to why you might want dentures beyond replacing missing teeth. Though there are other, much more permanent reconstructive treatment options accessible, dentures are an extremely affordable method of replacing missing teeth. Other factors for choosing dentures include:
- Compromised appearance
- Extensive tooth loss in one or both arches
- Difficulty chewing, speaking, and eating
- Deteriorating self-confidence
What Is The Procedure Like?
The process of receiving dentures takes place over a series of visits to our Corona dental office. During your first consultation, we’ll evaluate your smile and verify that dentures or partials are the right treatment option for your needs. We’ll then take an impression of your smile to create a mold for the denture or partial. As soon as the dentures have been produced to match your mouth and the appliance is completed, it can take some time for you to get comfortable wearing your dentures. Some side effects you might encounter consist of:
- Increased saliva flow
- Speech and chewing difficulty
These side effects are not long-term and often dissipate over time. If you find that you’re still having difficulty acclimating to this treatment, we encourage you to visit Temescal Dental for a follow-up. We’ll check the fit of your appliance and make any necessary adjustments.
