Dentures are removable replacements for teeth. If you have lost most or all of your teeth, ask Dr. Scott G. Lamming if dentures in San Juan Capistrano, California, are right for you. To prepare dentures, your dentist will make several impressions of your jaw and take measurements of your jaws and how they relate to each other. Then, models will be made in the shape and position of your future dentures. You will try these on so the dentist can make adjustments before the final dentures are made.
Complete dentures are used if you have lost all of your teeth. They are a complete restoration of your smile. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain. These remaining teeth help anchor your dentures in place. The partial denture prevents your natural teeth from shifting and moving out of position. Our office also offers implant-supported dentures. The implant attachments keep the denture from sliding and ensure that your restoration is stable.
Dentures can greatly enhance and restore your smile. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth, so your appearance will not change much. They also help restore facial muscles. In addition, dentures have benefits like bringing back your ability to eat and speak easily.
We encourage you to contact the office of Scott G. Lamming, DDS today with any questions about dentures and to schedule a consultation.
