Dentures – Los Gatos, CA

Restore Function Back to Your Smile

full and partial dentures in Los Gatos When you’re missing a few or all of your teeth, it can be hard to find a reason to smile. After all, your ability to talk, eat, or even smile may not be what it once was. Fortunately, dentures have provided a solution to that problem for generations. Thanks to advancements in modern dentistry, dentures have become even more comfortable and more like natural teeth than ever before, allowing you to easily restore function back to your smile. Whether you’re missing just a few teeth or an entire arch, dentures may be just the thing you need to get your smile back. Contact us today to find out whether dentures are right for you!

What Are the Types of Dentures?

They consist of prosthetic teeth attached to an acrylic base that looks just like gum tissue, and they come in three main types:

  • Full dentures: These are what you typically think of when you hear the word “dentures.” They consist of an entire row, or arch, of artificial teeth and are held in place using natural suction and a bit of denture adhesive if need be.
  • Partial dentures: For a person with some remaining natural teeth, partial dentures can complete your smile like a missing puzzle piece. This prosthetic normally attaches to the rest of your natural teeth using metal clasps.
  • Implant-retained dentures: By placing an average of four to six dental implants directly into the jawbone, it creates a more stable and long-lasting foundation for either a full or partial denture.

Am I a Good Candidate for Dentures?

For just a few missing pearly whites, we can fit you with a partial denture, or a full denture for an entire arch affected by tooth loss. If you want a set of dentures that won’t slip around or lose their fit, implant-retained dentures offer a much more permanent solution.

However, before we can place dentures of any variety, we need to make sure your mouth is ready. Sometimes that may involve extracting up to a few teeth to make room. Other times it means treating your gums for periodontal disease. Whatever issues must be addressed before you can receive dentures, we will discuss at your consultation.

Understanding the Cost of Dentures

Additionally, they often cover the cost of replacing them every five years or so. However, it’s impossible to give you an estimate of how much you’ll end up paying, since every single denture is different. Your total cost will be influenced by a few factors, such as how many teeth you’re missing and whether you elect to have your denture anchored by implants. Ultimately, the best way to find out how much a denture will cost for you is to schedule a consultation with us.
