Some dentists handle only a few denture cases each year, but at Diamond Valley Dentist in Hemet, CA, we love them. Why? We see the tremendous difference great fitting dentures make in the smiles and lives of our patients from Beaumont to Menifee, Murrieta, and Perris.
Do you have even a few existing teeth? They can still play an important role in preserving bone and stabilizing a partial denture. This type of denture contains one or many artificial teeth to replace those missing at various locations in the arch. This helps to protect remaining teeth from shifting out of position. The color of teeth and gums looks very natural, and in some cases partial dentures can be metal-free. The prosthetic clips into place, anchored by your own teeth. Denture care is a breeze, since the unit is taken out of the mouth for easy cleaning.
If remaining teeth need to be removed in the best interests of your overall health, we can help. Dr. Jergensen performs extractions on site at Diamond Valley Dentist, so there is usually no need to send you to an outside oral surgeon. Then you are ready to replace all missing teeth with complete dentures. Extra attention during the design process ensures a comfortable fit that helps to restore face appearance.
Do you presently have dentures that:
Dr. Jergensen may be able to adjust them to improve bite and chew-ability. If the dentures cannot be modified for proper fit, he will help you decide if permanent dentures are the right choice for your needs.
Denture implants are small, screw-shaped devices. They are precisely positioned in jawbone to stabilize a full denture. Since the denture is locked in place, it provides superior function, confidence, and comfort. Like the roots of natural teeth, implants also work to maintain bone, helping to avoid a sunken appearance or sagging skin on the lower portion of the face. Having missing teeth is about more than appearance – it is a quality of life issue. Call 951-458-6545 to schedule a dentures consultation at Diamond Valley Dentist in Hemet, CA.
