Full Dentures for Dental Patients in Orange County
If severe deterioration of your teeth presents a hazard to your continued dental well-being, it may be in your best interest to have all the damaged and infected teeth removed. In some cases, patients come to us who’ve already lost their teeth, either through disease or traumatic accidents.
At his Orange County dental practice, Dr. Choi can use his expertise and meticulous skills to create a beautiful set of full dentures, which can be attached either through traditional methods, such as adhesive, or with dental implants.
After teeth have been removed, the supporting ridges that remain gradually get smaller. Every two to four years, patients will need their dentures need to be “relined” or “refitted” so that their dentures conform to the changing ridge. Your ridges and jawbone can be better preserved with dental implants, which mimic actual tooth roots.
Partial Dentures Created at Irvine Dental Practice
Removable partial dentures replace a few missing teeth. Our Irvine, CA prosthodontist can create partial dentures that attach to your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachments. Dr. Choi can also place dental implants as a connection point for your partial dentures.
Your dentures may feel awkward for a little while, but your mouth will eventually get used to your new teeth and they’ll begin to feel like a regular part of your smile.
Tooth Loss and Aging
Did you know that aging doesn’t bring about tooth loss at all? The number one reason that American adults lose their teeth is due to untreated gum disease. Gum disease has a high statistical correlation with chronic debilitating diseases, such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, strokes, and heart problems. Nutritional deficiencies are also more prevalent in those without their natural teeth.
At Smile by Design we appreciate the special challenges that are faced by our senior patients. Dr. Choi and his team will help you find the denture solutions that will keep your mouth healthy, and allow you to enjoy a full and satisfying life.
