If you are missing teeth, you may have several options for replacing them. These can include removable or fixed appliances. Dentures are designed to replace multiple teeth. They are held in place by the bone and gum tissue, and any teeth that may remain. Our dentist in Huntington Beach can help you decide if dentures are right for you.
Candidates for dentures include those who have lost several or all of their teeth. For the best results, they should have sufficient healthy gum and bone tissue to support the dentures. Partial dentures can be a good option for those who are missing some but not all of their teeth. Partial dentures are typically supported by clasps that attach to the remaining teeth. Full dentures are used when an entire arch or both arches are missing.
Both partial and full dentures can also be used with dental implants. Implants are inserted into the jawbone, and therefore add additional stability. The dentures can be snapped into place and used just like your natural teeth.
A consultation with our dentures dentist in Huntington Beach can help you learn more about your options and determine your candidacy for dentures. Call our office today to schedule an appointment with our team.
