Permanent dentures from your Brentwood dentist a viable option for smile restoration
Tooth loss does not affect only the smile, and not just oral health. When there are no natural teeth remaining in the smile, there can be a devastating effect on general health and wellbeing. Our teeth are integral to our quality of life, facilitating everything from functional chewing to clear speech and right down to our very self-esteem. Dr. Alkhoury of Brentwood Family Dental offers his patients both conventional and innovative new treatment options for the restoration of their most functional, attractive smile.
For complete tooth replacement, permanent dentures
have been a longstanding and proven treatment option. Those designed in our Brentwood
dental office are a far cry from the dentures designed years ago. Dentures have, in fact, been used since ancient times. Evidence of this dates back to 700 BC. More modern versions of what we have today began being developed in the mid-1800s. These models may have been made of rubber and porcelain. Early dentures, according to historians, were quite uncomfortable and clumsy. Even into the 21st century, with materials further evolved, challenges with the look and long term function of dentures remained.
For quite some time, dentures were called "false teeth." No doubt, they looked nothing like real teeth for the most part. The dentures worn by our grandparents could not have looked more one-size-fits-all, leaving much to be desired. Fortunately, the commitment to beautiful, functional restorations has never waned and scientific research has brought us to a place where conventional dentures really can live up to their intended purpose.
Dentures made today tend to be extremely comfortable, durable, stable, and attractive. Dr. Alkhoury places specific attention on the details of denture design so that his patients can smile, eat, and speak with confidence. There are a number of improvements that make modern-day dentures an ideal choice for many of our patients:
- Fit, comfort, and function are ensured through excellent fabrication methods.
- A natural aesthetic is achieved with outstanding material choices that mimic the characteristics of tooth enamel.
- The color choices that exist for "teeth" and "gums" in a denture are extensive enough to suit a wide variety of complexions.
- The "teeth" in dentures are positioned one at a time in order to achieve the most authentic replica of the natural oral anatomy. No more one-size-fits-all!
The team at Brentwood Family Dental can help you restore functionality and attractiveness to your smile with comfortable dentures. Call 925-344-5296 to schedule your visit.
