SAN BERNARDINO, CA, April 20, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Patients who are missing several or all of their teeth no longer have to worry. With the help of Dr. Sanjay Patel at My Dentist in San Bernardino, patients can replace missing teeth with dentures. Whether it is from tooth decay, periodontal disease or injury, dentures can be used to replace missing teeth and restore a patient's smile.
By replacing missing teeth with dentures in San Bernardino, a patient's health and appearance will benefit immensely. Today, dentures are designed to be more comfortable and functional than they were previously. Similar in appearance to natural teeth, dentures allow a person's smile to improve as well as their facial appearance. Patients can restore function and appearance to their smile in San Bernardino with dentures from Dr. Sanjay Patel and his team of dental experts.
"Depending on the amount of teeth you are missing, there are a variety of dentures that can be fabricated to meet your oral needs. Complete dentures are used to replace all of your teeth, while partial dentures simply fill in the spaces that are created by missing teeth, preventing other teeth from shifting positions. At your consultation, we will discuss every option available for your smile restoration with dentures," said Dr. Sanjay Patel, a San Bernardino dentist.
Candidates for complete dentures have lost most or all of their teeth and are called conventional or immediate according to when they are made and when they are inserted into the mouth. Immediate dentures are inserted immediately after the removal of remaining teeth, while conventional dentures are made once the tissues have healed, which may take at least 6 - 8 weeks. The advantage of an immediate denture is that the wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period. On the other hand, bones and gums can shrink over time, especially during the period of healing in the first six months after removal. When bones and gums shrink, immediate dentures can require rebasing or relining in order to properly fit a person's mouth.
Overdentures are removable dentures that fit over a small number of remaining natural teeth or implants. The natural teeth need to be prepared to provide stability and support for the denture. Additionally, partial dentures are often a solution when several teeth are missing. Removable partial dentures typically consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases connected to metal framework. Crowns on teeth may improve the fit of a removable denture in San Bernardino and are usually required with attachments.
Patients are encouraged to consult Dr. Sanjay Patel, a dentist in San Bernardino, CA, today if he or she is missing some or all of your teeth. Dentures are not for everyone, but with proper consultation, Dr. Patel will find the best treatment plan for their smile. Missing teeth can be a thing of the past with proper dental hygiene and dentures in San Bernardino.
