What Are Partial Dentures?
Partial dentures are dental restorations that we use when you have a few healthy teeth remaining. They are customized to fit your specific arch and blend beautifully with your remaining teeth. Partial dentures consist of body-safe and durable materials that look like natural teeth and healthy gums. They are available in traditional dentures, which are removable, as well as implant-supported dentures which are permanently fixed.
Our team is dedicated to helping you get the perfect fit. We take detailed images, impressions, and measurements to ensure that your dentures fit comfortably and look and feel natural.
What Are Full Dentures?
Full dentures are a dental restoration that we use when you have no teeth left in your upper arch, lower arch, or both arches. We carefully craft your full dentures to look and feel like your natural teeth and smile.
Dentures consist of a comfortable, body-safe plastic that mimics the look of healthy gums and durable resin that will look and feel like natural, beautiful teeth. Full dentures are available in traditional, removable restorations, as well as implant-supported dentures. Both kinds of dentures have an impressive list of benefits that our friendly dentist will discuss with you so you can make an informed decision about which restoration option is best for you.
When you visit our dental practice in Petaluma, you will discover a welcoming and calm environment. We believe that quality dental care encompasses your oral health as well as your peace of mind. A member of our friendly team will greet you and assist you through the check-in process and then guide you to our relaxing waiting area. We understand that your time is valuable, which is why we make it a point to keep our appointments on time so you can focus on what matters most.
Once you are comfortably seated in the dentist's chair, our gentle dentist will perform a thorough exam of your teeth, jaws, and gums and then craft a denture plan that is tailored to you. Our team encourages you to share your concerns and to ask questions because we want you to be confident in your treatment plan. We are happy to answer all of your questions and provide the information you need to make an informed decision.
If you have gum disease, then we will discuss the pretreatments you need. If you have a particularly complex situation, we will refer you to trusted specialists for specific treatments. Once these services are complete, our team will complete your dental restoration with partial or full dentures.
We understand that over time your dentures may not fit as snugly or may become damaged. If you experience these problems, then you can visit our office for denture relining and repairs.
When you require dentures to restore your smile, it's natural to have questions. We are happy to have an open discussion regarding your oral health journey and provide the answers and information you need. Here are some of the most common questions we receive regarding dentures.
Traditional dentures are easy to clean, and our dentist will provide instructions and tips for proper cleaning. You will remove your traditional dentures each night and gently clean them with a soft toothbrush and denture-safe toothpaste. Then you will place them in denture solution to protect and preserve your dental restoration.
Permanent dentures, or implant-supported dentures, are fixed via dental implant posts and are not removable. Implant-supported dentures are increasing in popularity because they do not slip or fall out and function much like your natural teeth, including how you clean them.
Partial and full dentures will last for many years. The key to maximizing their longevity is to care for them properly by following our dentist's instructions for cleaning and avoiding certain hard or sticky foods.
