Dentures are a way to improve a patient's smile without the pain and long recovery times of dental implants. Dr. Donia provides a range of denture services for his patients in the Encino, California area.
Getting dentures made typically takes a few appointments before they are completed. First, the dentist makes an impression of the patient's mouth and takes several measurements. He then creates a model denture that the patient can try on to see if the fit and shape are correct.
After the dentist makes any adjustments, the final denture is produced in a lab and given to the patient to wear.
Dentures make eating and speaking much easier for patients not used to having teeth. Compared to other methods of tooth replacement, such as crowns or bridges, dentures are more reliable and can provide greater stability in the mouth. Dentures allow patients to chew normally and speak without a lisp.
Dentures should be fitted to the jaw, so they stay in place naturally; however, patients can also use denture adhesive to hold them to the gums. The two main types of adhesive are pastes and powders. To use the paste, patients apply small dots along the ridge of the dentures when they are either wet or dry.
For denture powders, patients simply sprinkle the adhesive onto the places where it will touch the gums. Powders are usually easier to clean and help the dentures have a better fit against gum tissue.
Dentures have many benefits over other methods of tooth replacement. First of all, they do not require painful procedures to install, as do dental implants, crowns or bridges. Additionally, since they are removable, it makes them very easy to keep clean and tidy at all times, which prevents bacteria from festering in the mouth. They also keep facial muscles from sagging and provide a picture perfect smile that gives patients confidence in their appearance.
