Denture Dentist Newport Beach – Dr. Steve Ngo
Patients who have lost the teeth they were born with should consider dentures for a variety of reasons. The main reason being that chewing and biting without teeth will harm your oral health and can cause further damage.
Benefits of Dentures
- Greatly enhance facial appearance & smile
- Restore normal function back into your mouth
- Improve speech
- Prevent facial muscles from sagging
Types of Dentures to Consider
Dentures vary in types. Most procedures require that your dentist take measurements and compose a model of your jaw so that your dentures will fit with comfort and ease.
Complete Dentures (also known as full dentures)
Candidates for complete dentures have lost most or all of their teeth. Complete dentures are developed as a way to give you an entirely new set of teeth you can smile about!
Candidates for partial dentures are a great solution when only some of your teeth are missing. Partial dentures are often removable and attach to existing teeth via precision attachments that are aesthetically appealing.
These are a set of dentures immediately placed into the mouth directly after tooth extraction. They are only used as a set of temporary dentures until you receive a complete set that is tailored specifically to fit comfortably in your mouth. The advantage to this is so you do not have to be without a set of teeth to carry out basic functions while you wait for your new set.
Caring For Your Dentures
Wearing any type of dentures means that you must maintain your oral hygiene by continuing to brush your teeth and utilizing a soft-bristled brush to remove any food particles and plaque that may build, like you would with normal teeth. It is equally important to floss and visit your dentist for any adjustments that should be made in order to ensure a snug, comfortable for optimal performance.
