Dentures are removable tooth substitutes. They are, of course, man-made, but they look, feel, and perform perfectly like natural ones. Losing some or all of your teeth can harm your health and looks. It might distort your appearance and make eating difficult. Dentures allow persons who have lost teeth to eat and bite food normally, as well as smile boldly. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Gundong Lee at Bell Dental Care to learn more about dentures in Bellflower, California.

What Are Dentures?

Dentures are prosthetic teeth and gums that are custom-made for your mouth by our dentist to replace missing or extracted natural teeth. Dentures can be full or partial, which means they can replace all teeth on either the top or bottom gum line or only a few missing teeth.

What Materials Are Used to Make Dentures?

While there are a few different types of dentures, they are almost always constructed of plastic, primarily acrylic resin. You might also obtain porcelain dentures, which stay longer; however, acrylic dentures are stronger. This is because acrylic clings more securely to the denture base and is easier to modify. Acrylic resin is much less expensive than porcelain and much lighter in weight.

Types of Dentures

Based on the number of lost teeth, our healthcare expert will propose the appropriate form of denture. Our provider may employ denture kinds such as:

Complete Dentures

These dentures lie on the gums. They replace an entire row of teeth on the upper, lower, or both gums.

Partial Dentures

These dentures replace one or more missing teeth. Dentures are attached to natural teeth or, in rare cases, dental implants (titanium screws).

Fixed Partial Dentures

Fixed partial dentures, also known as dental bridges, are permanently attached to neighboring teeth. A fixed partial denture or bridge can only be removed by a dental expert.

Why Should You Wear Dentures?

Dentures not only improve the appearance of a missing tooth grin, but they help keep the mouth structure sound by supporting the structures around the cheeks and lips. Dentures also allow you to eat foods that require chewing, allowing you to keep your diet and assure sufficient nutrition. Dentures can be used to replace teeth that are causing significant pain and oral health issues, such as those with decayed roots or considerable damage. Problematic teeth are extracted and replaced with a strong substitute when dentures are fitted.
