What are Dentures?

If you are missing many or all of your teeth, our dentists may recommend full or partial dentures in Bakersfield, California, to help restore your oral health and improve your facial volume. We welcome you to call 661-587-7002 to learn more about full and partial dentures and schedule your consultation with our exceptional dental team at Valley Grace Dental.

Dentures are removable oral appliances used to replace multiple missing teeth. If you are missing several teeth or all of your teeth, dentures might be just what you need to restore the function, beauty, and health of your smile. There are two kinds of dentures: complete dentures and partial dentures.

A complete denture is used to replace all of the teeth in a full dental arch. We may suggest a complete denture to replace all of the teeth in both arches or just one, depending on your individual needs. Our dentist may suggest using a denture adhesive for improved stability.

A partial denture is used if you are missing multiple teeth but have remaining natural teeth. A partial denture often includes a thin framework or clasps that attach to the natural teeth for a secure fit.

Benefits of Dentures

  • Improve your smile
  • Customized to look like your natural teeth.
  • Easy to clean and maintain.
  • Preserve facial volume.
  • Reduce other oral health issues.
  • Minimize the risk of gum disease.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Removable dentures are simple, cost-effective means of replacing some or all of your teeth. But their removability also means they don’t “feel” like natural teeth. After all, you can’t simply remove your natural teeth and pop them into a glass, can you? However, if you want your dentures to resemble actual teeth more closely, you can opt for implant-supported dentures.

Implant-supported dentures are full or partial dentures screwed over four or five implants. Dental implants are titanium posts drilled into the jawbone of the missing tooth to serve as a tooth root replacement. Over time, your healthy bone tissues grow around the implant, making it a natural part of your dental anatomy. Once the implant has properly bonded to your jawbone, the dentist can provide dentures.

For implant-supported dentures, you’ll need to get dental implants in four or five carefully chosen locations in your jaws. Finally, the implant-supported dentures can be screwed over the implants, turning them into permanent restorations. Once the dentures are fixed over your implants, you can treat them just like your natural teeth.

When looking for reliable guidance and professional implementation of dentures, Bakersfield patients choose Valley Grace Dental.
