Yes, we can treat receding gums so that dentures can be fitted.
Receding gums can be provoked by several issues, ranging from gum disease to age. Left untreated, receding gums can lead to tooth loss. Vallejo patients who need to fit dentures should address any gum recession first.
While dentures are a beautiful dental restoration, we recommend patients consider long-term options for replacing teeth.
Dentures and Receding Gums
Partial dentures are a perfect solution to restore multiple missing teeth while you still have natural teeth. Partials can replace missing teeth and configure around existing teeth through a removable retainer. They often use the support of nearby teeth to stabilize the dentures and to hold them in place.
Dentures must be cleaned regularly to avoid gum disease or receding gums.
Full dentures are recommended when there are no remaining natural teeth. Your gums are still susceptible to change. Without a root to stimulate bone growth, the jawbone will start to lose density and recede, making dentures loose over time.
If your dentures stop feeling like a nice comfortable fit, visit our Vallejo, CA dental office to have them refitted.
Over time, dentures may need to be replaced as your oral cavity changes, and relining dentures isn't enough anymore.
