If you are missing a full arch or set of teeth, dentures can be a great restorative option. Dentures are custom-fit to patients to restore the form and function of their teeth. Premier Dental Care offers restorative dentistry in their Lancaster and Palmdale, CA offices. Dr. Karim Naguib will work with you to pick a denture option that best aligns with your budget, goals, and oral health.
Benefits of Implant-Secured Dentures
When secured with dental implants, dentures can offer many benefits that improve oral health:
- Prevent gum recession
- Improve bite function
- Support bone retention
- Provide stability and security
- Improve speech and chewing ability
If you believe that you would benefit from dentures call Premier Dental Care’s Lancaster office at (661) 948-6700 or our Palmdale office at (661) 273-6565. Dr. Naguib and his professional dental team make it their mission to provide comfortable care for patients of all ages.
Treatment with Dentures and Partials
Before treatment, Dr. Karim Naguib will examine your teeth and gums to see if you are a good candidate for dentures. He may take jaw stability into account when creating a treatment plan for you. Depending on the results of his assessment, you may be a candidate for another restorative treatment.
Removable dentures consist of replacement teeth on a base. Molds of teeth will be made and a temporary restoration may be placed before your dentures are complete. In addition, this restoration is color-matched to teeth for a more natural look.
Permanent dentures, also known as implant-secured dentures, are secured by dental implants for a stable and secure restoration. Dental implants consist of titanium posts that are inserted into the jawbone. The posts fuse to bone tissue and heal during a period of 3 to 6 months. After this period, an abutment and dental crown are attached. Implant-secured dentures are a long-lasting and durable option for missing teeth.
How long do you have to wait to get dentures after teeth are pulled?
Dentists usually recommend waiting a couple of months for your teeth sockets to heal before placing your dentures. This allows enough time for your jawbone to heal as well and provide a stable foundation for your dentures. You can get immediate dentures (also known as same-day dentures or temporary dentures) placed so you don’t go without teeth while you wait for your final restoration.
Do dentures make you look different?
Dentures can create a more youthful appearance for your face and smile. Implant-secured dentures have the added benefit of supporting your jawbone and promoting growth so you experience less facial sagging in the future.
Can I sleep in dentures?
Yes. It is possible to sleep with your removable dentures on. Although, we do not recommend that you do this every day, or on a regular basis. Your gums would love you if they got some rest from wearing dentures all day. Taking them off before bed gives your jaw time to relax and can help prevent gum irritation during the day.
