Full Dentures & Partial Dentures

In one form or another, dentures have been around for centuries, and they still provide an effective and affordable way to replace a large number of missing teeth at the same time. Modern-day prosthetics consist of ceramic teeth affixed to an acrylic, gum-colored base, giving them the strength and lifelike-appearance that patients need. Whether you have a few remaining teeth or are missing all of them, Dr. Alhamdi and our team can create a denture for you that fits great, looks even better, and can be trusted to stand the test of time.

Partials and Dentures – San Diego, CA

Complete Your Smile with Dentures

Your teeth are important for more than just a beautiful smile. They also allow you to chew a variety of foods and speak clearly. Unfortunately, tooth loss is still a common problem despite the latest innovations in dentistry. In fact, at least 35 million Americans have lost all their natural teeth in one or both arches. If your smile and your quality of life has been damaged by significant tooth loss, we can replace your missing teeth with partials or dentures in Carmel Valley. While you might have heard they have a bad reputation for looking and feeling fake, our office uses advanced technologies and superior materials to allow them to look and feel more realistic than ever!

Do I Need Dentures?

If you’ve experienced significant tooth loss, you are likely a candidate for dentures. Although you might feel your missing teeth are only an aesthetic concern, an incomplete smile can adversely affect your oral and general health. If you have any remaining natural teeth, they won’t have the support they need to stay in place. Eventually, they will likely fall out. With every tooth you lose, you’ll struggle to maintain a balanced diet, which can lead to nutritional deficiencies. You can stop the complications associated with tooth loss using the right dental prosthetic.

What are My Options for Tooth Replacement?

Your dentist in Carmel Valley will evaluate your smile to determine which treatment best meets your needs:

Partial

If you still have a few healthy teeth, you might be a candidate for a partial denture. Prosthetic teeth are attached to a gum-colored base that has a metal framework. This allows it to clip or clasp onto your natural teeth to hold it in place.

Denture

An impression of your mouth is used to create a gum-colored base for your replacement teeth. The denture is held in place using suction or an adhesive. If you’re interested in a more permanent solution, ask us how we can support your denture with dental implants.

What Can I Expect?

After an initial consultation, we might recommend additional procedures before starting your process for dentures, like tooth extractions. Once you’ve healed from any previous treatments, we’ll use images and impressions to create a mold to make your denture. We’ll create wax models to ensure we get the proper fit before carefully crafting your permanent denture. It will be made to match the appearance of your natural teeth for a flawless smile.

From start to finish, it can take several weeks to create your new denture; however, it’s time well-spent to ensure it looks and feels closely like your real teeth. It will take a few days to get used to wearing your new denture, but in no time at all, you will speak, smile, and chew without any concern.
