To some, the prospect of getting dentures can be pretty scary, but it need not be. Once you understand the different types of dentures palmdale and how they improve your overall well-being, you will be more at ease with them. Boulevard Dental offers immediate, full, and partial dentures.
Dr. Gobrial will recommend dentures when several, or all of your teeth, are bad. This can describe a range of afflictions from broken or crumbling teeth to infected or missing teeth. Bad teeth are more than simply unattractive, they can be very painful and seriously affect your health.
Broken teeth are hard to keep clean, and the plaque buildup will cause infections to set up. Once this happens, the infections spread to other parts of your body through swallowing. Tooth infections can be linked to health issues such as strokes, heart disease, and bone deterioration. They also affect how you chew which can lead to jaw issues including earaches and headaches. Now you can see the benefits of replacing those bad teeth.
Dr. Gobrial will make a full cast of your mouth along with a full set of x-rays. This helps determine the tooth placement in the dentures palmdale as well as attaining the proper size that is best for you.
Your teeth will then be pulled. Depending on the type of denture you are getting, you will be instructed on how to care for your mouth during the healing process.
Your dentures will be fitted into your mouth and checked for fit and comfort. Often, this is the time when extra sizing will be needed. Dr. Gobrial will make notes and your dentures will be re-sized by either buffing away some material or adding more, depending on your needs.
Traditional Full: This is a full set of upper and lower dentures that are fitted after all your teeth are pulled and the gums have had time to heal. In cases of serious gum disease, this will be the way Dr. Gobrial will have you go.
Immediate Full: As the name indicates, these are a full set of dentures that are placed and fitted immediately after your teeth are pulled. This method is popular with patients who do not wish to be without teeth for any period of time, however, healing time can take a bit longer. You will also need more follow-up visits to fit the dentures once the gums have healed.
Partials: These are ideal for people with just a few missing teeth. A partial consists only of the missing teeth in a gum-like base and anchored to the remaining teeth by a metal bracket.
Keeping any denture clean is essential, but always use denture products as regular toothpaste will scratch and harm the denture.
Once you are comfortable with your new dentures, you will have renewed self-confidence and since there are no more painful teeth, you may even have an improved appetite. Your health will benefit greatly as well without the toxins in your body from all the infections.
The all-on-4 dental implants technique is a controversial one that stems from Portugal. A Portuguese dentist sought out a method that could help replace teeth without needing to go through the lengthy and costly procedure of bone grafting.
The premise behind this idea is that only four dental implants are needed when fitting the replacement teeth. In more conventional procedures, each tooth is implanted individually. Here, four implants are placed in the front area of the jaw. Instead of being positioned directly down into the jaw, they’re set at different angles. This helps create more stability, without needing loads of additional implants.
It’s controversial because many people believe the cons outweigh the pros with this procedure. Yes, it saves time and money for the patient, but a lot of dental experts see this as merely a shortcut, rather than an actual solution. The primary concern revolves around bone atrophy. When teeth get pulled from the jaw, the bone density starts to reduce. However, with traditional dental implants, they help slow this down and stop it from happening. The all-on-4 treatment only uses four implants, which leaves the jaw open to atrophy, and could cause bone problems and fractures in the future.
However, in many cases, this treatment will work - it all depends on each individual patient. If you’d like to know more about this and if it’s worthwhile for you, then give us a call, and we’ll talk you through all the advantages and disadvantages.
Permanent dentures remain one of the best solutions if you have missing teeth. Whether your teeth have naturally fallen out, or they’ve deteriorated to the point where extractions are essential, a permanent denture can help you get perfectly formed false teeth that put a smile on your face.
There are many benefits to having permanent dentures that can really make a difference in your life. For one, they provide you with a mouth full of realistic looking teeth. What’s more, thanks to the latest dental technologies, you can get permanent dentures that are almost identical to any existing teeth you have. This helps deliver a clean and consistent smile.
The biggest fear with dentures palmdale is that they’re too uncomfortable and need to be taken out whenever you eat. This isn’t always the case, as we offer permanent dentures that are fixed into dental implants. We put the implants in your mouth, and fix the dentures into them, keeping them firmly in place. You won’t feel any movement or irritation when you eat, and it’s like you have real teeth once more. The only time you need to take them out is when you go to bed so they can be cleaned thoroughly.
We offer an incredibly flexible permanent dentures service that begins with tooth extractions. Our team will quickly take out your bad teeth and then work on delivering impressions to help sculpt your perfect set of dentures. If you’re interested in bringing some life back into your smile, then give us a call and we’ll discuss the options with you, and book you in for a consultation.
