Removable Dentures Redondo Beach
Full or partial tooth loss doesn’t only affect the appearance of your smile, but increase the risk of nutritional health or systemic problems. There is a proven method of treating these conditions, they are known as full or partial dentures. Dr. Shvartsman works with patients in Redondo Beach who require removable dentures to resolve tooth loss.
Full or partial dentures are created from a gum-colored base of plastic resin. This is fitted over the remaining alveolar (bone) ridge that formerly held the teeth. The prosthetic teeth projecting from the base are designed to appear like your natural teeth. The dentures are secured in position by a suctioning effect of their close fit against the alveolar ridges. This is why fitting them properly is important. The upper denture receives additional support from the large surface area of the roof of the mouth.
Immediate dentures are usually temporary and help you transition to successful permanent ones. A muscular readjustment is required, as well as the natural shrinkage of gums. They are placed immediately after tooth extraction. This provides you with teeth right away to perform your biting and speech functions.
Conventional full dentures are fitted to your mouth with precision and carefully crafted to look like your natural teeth. They will also be able to function in your mouth correctly for a long time.
Implant-supported overdentures increase the stability of lower or upper dentures. They can be securely attached using two or more implants. The upper jaw requires more implants than the lower one due to having less bone density.
Partial dentures are also available in two types, this includes transitional and removal partial dentures. The former is created to serve as a temporary tooth replacement until your mouth completely heals from tooth extraction. The latter is composed of cast vitallium and fit better with your teeth.
