Dentures

Sunnyvale DenturesIf you are looking for dentures in Sunnyvale, book an apointment at Tooth Spa. Dentures (false teeth) are prosthetic replacements made to replace missing teeth as well as support tissue that surrounds teeth. We offer both complete (full) or partial type denture. When all teeth need replacing, complete types can be used whereas when several teeth in the same arch need replacing, a partial can be used.

Complete Dentures

A complete denture is made to be removable, unlike permanent teeth replacements such as dental implants. Normally, these types of prosthetics are placed in the mouth after natural teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed. This takes about 8 to 12 weeks. Another option for complete dental prosthetics are immediate dental prosthetics, which are placed in the mouth immediately following the extraction of natural teeth. An immediate denture is made before natural teeth are removed for immediate replacement. This allows the patient to avoid being without teeth at anytime. However, when gums heal, they will shrink and immediate types will eventually need to be replaced with a conventional prosthetic.

Partial Dentures

Complete Dentures in SunnyvalePartial dentures can be made to be removed or can be fixed. Removable partials normally consist of artificial teeth connected to a plastic base, which is held in position with metal framework. Fixed partials, also known as bridges, are made with crowns that are fitted onto adjoining teeth with artificial teeth placed in between them. They are then cemented into position. How a denture is made when a patient decides to have dentures, a dental-care professional at Tooth Spa Dental will determine which type will be best according to the patient's needs. The dentist will then create a series of impressions of the jaw as well as take measurements of how the jaws fit together and the gaps between them. A model of the dentures will then be created. The model will be placed in the mouth and any necessary alterations will be determined and made. After the model has been correctly fitted, a cast of the final prosthetic is created from the model. The entire procedure requires several appointments over a period of 8 to 12 weeks. If you think your are a good candidate for complete or partial dentures in Sunnyvale, call and schedule an appointment.

Denture Alternatives

Because a denture must be removed for cleaning and the use of adhesives are often necessary to provide more stability, many patients who obtain services at Tooth Spa Dental choose to have dental implants installed as an alternative. Implants provide a more natural look and feel, much like real teeth. They also are permanently implanted, offering more stability.
