Fortunately, at the Dental Lounge in San Bernardino, California, general dentist Gun Gil Lee, DDS, and his staff offer different types of dentures to give you the full set of teeth you desire. Call the office to schedule an appointment or book one online today.
Dentures are artificial teeth that replace missing permanent teeth and improve the function and appearance of your smile. They can restore your oral health, provide a variety of dental benefits, improve your quality of life, and perfect your gorgeous smile.
Some of the many benefits you can experience with dentures from the Dental Lounge include:
Dentures look, function, and feel like your natural teeth. They can dramatically enhance the appearance of your smile.
Your Dental Lounge specialist discusses the different types of dentures available to find a match for your needs.
Implant-supported dentures attach to artificial metal tooth roots and are fixed in place. Traditional dentures are removable. Partial dentures replace just some of your teeth, while full dentures replace all of your natural teeth.
Overdentures fit over the top of some remaining natural teeth, and immediate dentures are those you can wear right after tooth extraction, so you don’t have to go without teeth.
Your Dental Lounge specialist lets you know if you’re a candidate for dentures after reviewing your oral health history, examining your teeth and gums, discussing your desired outcome, and taking dental X-rays. They personalize a restorative dentistry treatment that’s right for you.
Your dentist prepares you for getting dentures in several ways. They offer bone grafting to restore the strength and size of your jaw bone if needed and place dental implants into your jaw bone to anchor implant-supported dentures. They digitally scan your mouth or take impressions so a dental lab can create traditional or implant-supported dentures.
When your new teeth are ready or after your jawbone heals around dental implants, your dentist ensures the dentures fit properly. They secure implant-supported dentures to dental implants, where they remain fixed in place.
Your provider makes sure removable dentures fit inside your mouth comfortably before sending you home.
Follow your dentist’s instructions to take good care of your dentures. Brush your teeth, tongue, the roof of your mouth, and sides of your mouth regularly and after meals. Soak removable dentures in a special cleaning solution as directed by your dentist.
See the experts at the Dental Lounge every six months for professional cleanings and exams, and call the office if your dentures become loose or get damaged.
