Dentures are removable appliances that replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. At Moyneur & Perisho Family Dentistry, they are custom-made to fit your mouth and match your natural teeth. They can be removed for cleaning, sleeping, eating, and other activities. Dentures can help to improve your appearance and restore your smile. They can also help improve your ability to chew and speak and prevent your facial muscles from sagging. In addition, dentures can help you to maintain good oral health by preventing tooth decay and gum disease.
The Types of Dentures
Full dentures are used to replace all your teeth. They consist of artificial teeth that are attached to a gum-colored base. The base is designed to fit snugly over your gums, creating a seal that keeps the dentures in place. The artificial teeth are made out of acrylic or porcelain, and they can be made to resemble your natural teeth.
Partial dentures are used when you still have healthy teeth in your mouth. These dentures are designed to fill in the gaps in your smile caused by missing teeth by our dentist in Sacramento, CA. Like full dentures, they are made of acrylic or porcelain and are attached to a metal framework. However, unlike full dentures, partial dentures can be removed for cleaning and maintenance.
The Dentures Procedure
Dentures in Sacramento, CA, are made by taking impressions of your mouth and creating a mold of your teeth. The mold is then used to create customized dentures that fit your mouth perfectly. Once the dentures are made, they are fitted and adjusted to ensure they fit comfortably in your mouth.
It would help to clean your dentures daily by brushing them with a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste. It would help if you also soaked them in a cleaning solution overnight to keep them fresh and clean. Be sure to rinse them before placing them back in your mouth.
The Benefits of Dentures
Missing teeth can make you feel self-conscious about your smile. Dentures can help you feel more confident about your appearance and smile more confidently.
Better Oral Health
When you have gaps in your teeth, food particles can become trapped and cause decay and gum disease. Dentures can help to prevent these problems by filling in the gaps and preventing bacteria from building up in your mouth.
Missing teeth can make it difficult to enunciate words properly. Dentures help to improve your speech by allowing you to pronounce words more clearly.
Improved Chewing Ability
Missing teeth can make it challenging to chew certain foods. Dentures can restore your ability to chew all types of foods comfortably.
