Your Denture Options in Bakersfield
If you are missing teeth and want to have your old smile back, dentures may be the best choice. Dentures will restore your ability to speak and eat with confidence. Dentures have been used for decades as an effective way to replace missing teeth.
Your dazzling smile can be restored! Advancements have allowed dentures to be created to match your natural teeth color and to be removed when needed.
Types of Dentures
Two types of dentures are available depending on your needs. Dr. Dickens and his staff at Masterworks Dentistry in Bakersfield will help you make a plan as to what is best.
Partial dentures are used when only a few teeth need to be replaced. Replacement teeth will be interspersed with the natural teeth. This is similar to dental bridges, but partial dentures can be removed while bridges are permanently placed.
Complete dentures are used when all teeth have been lost or severely damaged.
Implant supported dentures
Regular dentures rest on the gums, but if you have enough bone remaining in your jaw, you might benefit more from implant supported dentures. The first step in this process is to place titanium implants into the jaw. From there, denture implants can simply snap onto those implants.
These denture implants are more secure than regular dentures and are available in either a permanent or removable style. If you’re looking for a more stable set of dentures that won’t move around in your mouth when you’re out and about, these implant-supported teeth replacements might be just what you’ve been looking for.
What are the benefits of dentures?
The first and most obvious benefit of dentures is just having a full set of teeth again. With a full set of teeth, you’ll find that your abilities to chew and talk will improve. Having those abilities restored as well as receiving a beautiful new smile will lead to a confidence boost as you interact with others socially and professionally.
Dentures that have been properly cared for will last you many years and give you that natural smile you desire!
Do dentures need special care?
At night, your dentures will need to be placed in a glass of water with dental cleaning tablets. During your appointment, Dr. Dickens and the staff at Masterworks Dentistry will give you further details and directions in order to help you properly care for your new dentures.
