Dentures in Palmdale, CA

Dentures are removable prosthetic devices used to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues in the mouth. They are designed to restore the appearance and functionality of a person's smile, as well as to improve their ability to chew and speak. Dentures can be either partial or complete, depending on the number of missing teeth and the patient's needs.

Here are the main types of dentures:​

  1. Complete Dentures: Complete dentures are used when all the teeth in one or both arches (upper or lower) are missing. They consist of a full set of artificial teeth mounted on an acrylic base that is made to resemble gum tissue. Upper dentures usually cover the roof of the mouth, while lower dentures are shaped like a horseshoe to accommodate the tongue.

  2. Partial Dentures: Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain in the mouth. They consist of replacement teeth attached to a metal or plastic framework. Partial dentures are designed to fill gaps caused by missing teeth and are supported by the remaining natural teeth. They can improve chewing ability and prevent other teeth from shifting into the empty spaces.

At Pacific Dental Care & Orthodontics the process of getting dentures typically involves the following  steps:

  1. Consultation and Examination: Your dentist will examine your oral health and determine whether dentures are the best solution for your specific needs. They will discuss the various types of dentures and the treatment process.

  2. Impressions: Accurate impressions of your mouth will be taken to create custom dentures that fit comfortably and securely. These impressions ensure that the dentures are designed to match the shape and structure of your mouth.

  3. Fitting and Adjustments: Once the dentures are fabricated, you will have fitting appointments to ensure they fit well and comfortably. Adjustments may be needed to achieve the best fit and function.

  4. Learning to Wear Dentures: It takes some time to adjust to wearing dentures. Eating and speaking might feel different initially, but with practice, you'll become more comfortable.

  5. Follow-Up Appointments: Your dentist may schedule follow-up appointments to make any necessary adjustments and ensure that your dentures continue to fit properly.

  6. Oral Care: Even though dentures replace missing teeth, oral hygiene remains important. You'll need to clean your dentures daily and maintain good oral hygiene to prevent issues like gum inflammation.

  7. Replacing Dentures: Over time, dentures may need to be replaced or relined due to wear, changes in the jawbone, or changes in your oral health.
