Our Prosthodontist in Laguna Hills, CA

Over the years, tooth decay, gum disease, and dental trauma can take a toll on your smile. Dentures offer an effective solution to restore damaged smiles and improve oral hygiene while simultaneously rejuvenating a natural, more youthful appearance. Dentures are also known to improve their wearer’s ability to eat and speak.

Made from acrylic resin that’s reinforced with porcelain or metal, there are two types of dentures: full and partial. Full dentures are used when all of the natural teeth are missing, whether due to periodontal disease, dental decay, or mouth injury. Partial dentures are used to fill in gaps by either anchoring to your natural teeth with metal clasps or with nearly invisible devices called precision attachments. This type of denture helps prevent your remaining teeth from shifting while also helping to prevent decay and gum disease in surrounding teeth.

Curious about whether dentures are right for you? Consider these benefits:

  • They restore your ability to eat many foods

  • They protect against facial sagging

  • They improve speech

  • They offer a youthful facial effect

When cared for properly with regular post-meal rinsing and daily brushing, dentures can provide a natural looking, functional smile for up to 10 years. In that timeframe, your dentist in Deltona recommends that you visit their office annually to ensure that dentures continue to fit well, and to treat any yellowing or staining issues.
