Dentures

Our skilled team of dentists proudly offers a full range of dentures at our Moreno Valley, CA office. Whether you are missing all of your teeth, or you still have some healthy teeth remaining, we can provide a lifelike prosthetic to meet your needs. Our full and partial dentures are crafted from the latest materials, meaning they will match your gums and remaining teeth. At Value Dental Centers Moreno Valley, we also provide implant-supported dentures, which will function almost the same as natural teeth. All of our prosthetics will be custom-made to fit comfortably. Whichever type you choose, your denture will restore your smile, bite, and self-confidence.

Full and Partial Dentures

Our traditional dentures come in several different sizes. Full dentures are larger, and they will replace all of your top and/or bottom teeth. Partial dentures will fill in large gaps in your smile. They are typically appropriate if you still have some remaining teeth. To provide both full and partial dentures, your dentist will first take impressions of your gums. At the lab, the technicians will use these impressions to create a denture that will fit securely over your gum ridge.

Your traditional denture will have a smooth plastic base that will be comfortable and easy to adjust to. In addition, the lab will make sure that the plastic corresponds with the natural color of your gums. The ceramists will work carefully when crafting the synthetic teeth. They use advanced types of porcelain to insure a realistic color and sparkle. If you are going to receive a traditional denture, the lab will also fashion small metal clips, which will connect to your natural teeth. The technicians will carefully conceal the clips for the most realistic look possible.

Implant-Supported Dentures

We are proud of our traditional dentures, and we work hard to provide lifelike results. Nevertheless, our implant-supported dentures take restorative dentistry to the next level. This type of prosthetic will attach to implant posts, set permanently in your jaw. As a result, they will never slip out of place, and they will completely restore your dental function. In fact, with implant-supported dentures, you can eat all your favorite foods without fear that you will dislodge or harm your prosthetic. Even more importantly, implants will prevent jawbone recession and the changed appearance that often accompanies tooth loss.

To provide implant-supported dentures, your practitioner will first perform implant surgery. During this procedure, he or she will set the implant posts in your jaw through small incisions in your gums. Often, we can use just four posts to uphold a denture, but you may require additional posts depending on your jawbone structure. After surgery, your jaw will heal around the posts, and when healing is complete, we can attach your restoration. Just like our traditional dentures, your implant-supported prosthetic will be custom-made to fit your mouth. However, it will look even more realistic, since it will sit right along your gum line.

How Do You Know Which Type of Dentures Are Right for You?

Our dentists will conduct a complete consultation to determine the most appropriate type of dentures for your needs. At this time, your practitioner will consider your health, along with your cosmetic goals and budget. Your jaw structure is one of the most important factors. You must have a strong and healthy jawbone to qualify for implants. On the other hand, a bone graft can often reestablish your candidacy for treatment. In addition, you should have overall good health. A compromised immune system or similar chronic condition can make it difficult to recover from implant surgery.

Of course, your budget will play a big role in your decision. Implant-supported dentures cost more than removable prosthetics. At the same time, they typically last longer, and you will not have to repair or adjust the denture. Therefore, over time, implants may be a wise investment. In addition, implant-supported dentures offer the ultimate in aesthetics and function. Like many patients, you may be willing to pay more to enjoy these benefits.
