Partial & Complete Dentures in Vallejo, CA
Dentures remain one of the most reliable methods of tooth replacement. Advancements over the years have made dentures more comfortable, reliable, and attractive. The days of floppy, boxy looking dentures are over. Today’s dentures look and feel great.
If you are missing some or all of your teeth and you are considering your first set of dentures or replacements, Dr. Morgan Nordstrom and Dr. William Vizzolini look forward to creating dentures that allow you to eat, laugh, and talk with confidence.
Aside from the importance of feeling good about your smile, you need functioning dentures so that you can eat the healthy foods you love. Many of the foods that are the best for you require plenty of chewing, so missing teeth or ill-fitting dentures can affect the quality of your nutrition.
Partial dentures are appropriate if you are missing some, but not all of your teeth. We work with your remaining teeth as anchors that help support your partial denture. We make most partials from a combination of metal and plastic with natural-looking teeth to complete your smile.
It may take a short time to feel accustomed to your partial, but soon you will be talking and eating normally.
Complete (Full) Dentures
We recommend complete dentures for our patients who are missing all of their teeth on the upper arch, lower arch, or both. Complete dentures must fit properly because you do not have any natural teeth for anchors. Full dentures fit on the bony ridge in your mouth and create suction to hold them in place.
Like partial dentures, you may need some time to get used to your new complete dentures. It is important to report any sore spots so that we can make adjustments for your comfort.
The art of dentures has come a long way. Today’s dentures are beautiful and natural looking. We will talk to you about your dentures and how you would like them to look so that you feel confident when you wear them.
In some cases, implant supported dentures may provide you with the confidence and function you are looking for. With implant-supported dentures, you have the extra confidence that your denture is secure. Implants also help to preserve the integrity of your bone.
Unfortunately, dentures do not last forever. Because of changes to your bone structure over time, you may need to replace your dentures periodically to ensure the best fit. When you lose teeth, you also begin to lose bone and that ridge that holds your dentures in place may shrink over the years. Our doctors can share the options that are available so you can make a choice that supports your dental health.
