Losing multiple teeth can be detrimental to your overall oral health and the way you feel about your smile. At our dental practice, we strive to provide multiple options for replacing missing teeth to meet your individual situation. One of our favored options for replacing most or all of your teeth is dentures. Dentures are removable prosthetic teeth that rest solely on your gums. There are many benefits to using dentures:
- Dentures are completely non-invasive.
- Dentures are considered more affordable and cost-effective than other tooth replacement options.
- Dentures can be altered easily as your gums change.
- Dentures replace multiple teeth with a single device.
When you have lost all of your teeth in your lower or upper dental arch, or both, Dr. Russell Cannon will suggest full dentures. Full dentures are shaped like horseshoes and rest fully on the gums. If you still have some natural teeth remaining in your smile, partial dentures are used. Partial dentures are attached to the neighboring teeth with inconspicuous metal clasps. If you would like more information about dentures in Irvine, California, we invite you to contact our dentist today. We are excited to take care of your smile and guide you through the denture process.
