Dentures or Partials May Be The Solution For Replacing Your Missing Teeth!
If you have teeth that are loose or painful, caused by bone loss from periodontal disease, they may not be able to be saved. Removing and replacing them with a denture may be the only solution in eliminating the infection and restoring your smile and chewing ability.
Long Beach dentist Dr. Marvizi would begin the process by taking impressions of your mouth and from these, would create precise working models of your teeth which is what is used to create your dentures.
When your denture is ready to be placed, Dr. Marvizi will extract your remaining teeth and your denture will immediately be placed in your mouth.
Dental Implant Supported Dentures in Long Beach
The use of dental implants to retain your denture is a very significant innovation for us. Since the denture is held in place with dental implants rather than an adhesive, your dentures are held more firmly in place and can be removed for cleaning.
A partial denture is used for replacing some of your missing teeth. By filling in the spaces, a partial denture stops the teeth on either side of the space from shifting. When missing teeth aren’t replaced, this can set off a chain reaction that can result in cavities and periodontal disease.
A partial denture also helps to balance your bite which results in better chewing and a healthier jaw joint. Partials also add support to the cheeks and lips which is necessary for clear speaking and good facial structure.
