If you are missing multiple teeth, a complete or partial denture may be the solution for you! Dentures not only give you back a confident smile but also restore your ability to speak and chew normally and provide support for the shape and volume of your face. We invite you to call Victorville Family Dentistry at 760-245-7800 to schedule your consultation with Dr. Shaileshkumar Bhatt and learn more about dentures.
Dentures are removable oral appliances that are custom-made to fit your mouth and restore your smile. A denture is a set of prosthetic teeth anchored into a plastic base. There are two main types of dentures:
- Complete — A complete denture replaces an entire dental arch. Complete dentures may be received for one arch or for both the upper and lower arches.
- Partials — Partial dentures are used when you still have healthy teeth and are anchored in your mouth using a thin framework or a set of clasps that attach to your remaining natural teeth.
As dentures are a custom-made oral appliance, they will require several appointments with our dentist to complete. The process of creating your dentures begins with taking impressions and may involve multiple appointments to check the fit of the denture and ensure that it will fit and function comfortably. Our dentist will also provide you with instructions on how to care for your appliance and will examine it at each of your regular dental exams to ensure that it is functioning properly and determine if any maintenance is required.
