Do dentures look like real teeth for patients in Brentwood, CA?

Posted By

When patients in the Brentwood, CA area are faced with tooth loss, they may be struggling with the fact that they will require restorative care. Dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants are the three primary methods of tooth replacement available. However, many patients are unsure as to which option is best for their smiles. In many cases, dentures are ideal, as they can be used for patients in all stages of oral health and wellness.

What are dentures?

Dentures are restorations fabricated to restore the smile after tooth loss. There are two types of dentures:
  • Full dentures
  • Partial dentures

Dr. Jamil Alkhoury describes full dentures as full mouth replacement solutions and partial dentures as treatment for one or more missing teeth within an arch. Full dentures are made of acrylic, while partial dentures incorporate a metal framework, which allows the restoration to snap into place in the arch.

Do dentures look like real teeth?

Do dentures look like real teeth Absolutely! At Brentwood Family Dental, we want our patients to look their best, and feel confident when they smile, laugh, and talk with others. Our professionals are dedicated to creating restorations that look and feel like natural teeth. This includes our dentures. Dentures are wonderful, economic solutions for patients who are interested in an affordable way to repair their smiles while maintaining a natural appearance.

Who is a candidate for dentures?

Most patients are appropriate candidates for dentures. However, it is best to have a full evaluation done by a professional. This may include x-rays to check the health of the bone below the gum line. Additionally, patients may learn that they are candidates for alternative services such as dental bridges or dental implants. Dental implants are often the best way to go, as they offer permanent repair of the smile and can help patients maintain their jawbone.

How do you care for dentures?

Full and partial dentures are easy to remove and can be placed in cleaners made especially for dentures. This is often a tablet that is dissolved in a glass of water, where patients can store their dentures overnight to keep them clean. Patients must also brush their dentures to remove food particles. When patients are given their dentures, Dr. Jamil Alkhoury of Brentwood Family Dental educates them on proper care to increase their longevity.

What are implant-retained dentures?

Some patients may be interested in implant-retained dentures. This is a type of full denture that is fabricated to place over several dental implants implanted along the dental arch. Instead of using natural suction and dental adhesives to keep full dentures in place, implant-retained dentures snap into place over the implants. This is the best way to keep full dentures stabilized, but is not always an option for every patient. Individuals with sufficient bone structure may be educated on the advantages of using dental implants to retain dentures. Candidates must be thoroughly evaluated and should have strong, healthy jawbones to move forward with this option.

Living with dentures

Living with dentures Patients may be worried about how dentures will affect their lifestyle. In most cases, patients will not have to change the way they live or how they eat to accommodate their new restorations. Patients will learn over time how to keep their dentures in place and when they need to visit the dentist for adjustments. Patients with dentures will still visit their dentist every six months for an evaluation and cleaning.
