Partial Dentures Los Angeles
Partial dentures are a great option for people who are missing a few teeth. They can be either fixed or removable. Fixed partial dentures are also called bridges, and the prosthetic tooth or teeth are attached to crowns, which are bonded to healthy teeth on either side of the gap. Removable partial dentures use prosthetic teeth attached to a base with a framework that keeps them in place. They can be removed for eating. Our expert in partial dentures in Los Angeles can help you determine which type of partial denture is best for you.
Partial dentures allow you to eat comfortably, speak confidently and smile beautifully. They prevent teeth from shifting, maintain the natural contours of your face and reduce the risk of decay and gum disease, which tend to increase after the loss of teeth. If you are a candidate for partial dentures, our Los Angeles partial dentures expert may need to take dental X-rays, dental impressions and other records to ensure a comfortable fit and accurate restoration. Your new smile will be ready to share once the dental lab has created your dentures.
Full Dentures Los Angeles
If you are missing all the teeth in one or both arches, our expert in full dentures in Los Angeles may recommend full dentures. Full dentures use prosthetic teeth attached to a base that fits your gums precisely for a comfortable, secure fit. Complete dentures can be either immediate or conventional in design. Immediate dentures are placed as soon as any remaining teeth have been removed and may need to be adjusted occasionally as the tissues heal. Conventional dentures are not placed until the tissues have healed after any extractions. Occasional adjustments may still be necessary as your gums and jawbones change over time.
