Dentures

There are various types of dentures, and at Nevada City Smiles in Nevada City, CA, we are proud to offer different denture options so that you can feel comfortable and confident knowing that you are getting the best for your smile.

Immediate Dentures

It’s hard to live without your teeth! A temporary denture can make the process of losing them less embarrassing and give you back some self-esteem. We’ll begin preparing for this procedure before they’re extracted by taking an impression of your teeth so that when it is time to remove your natural teeth, we will already have your custom-made set ready for you, so you can leave our office with your new smile that same day. Great care must be taken following all surgeries. Your gums and bone will recede after extraction, so regular check-ups are necessary for our experts to evaluate the healing process. Temporary linings may come off over time but new ones might need to be installed every few weeks depending on your specific dental needs. If you have any questions during your denture journey, our team is only one call away!

Implant-Retained Dentures

Missing teeth can cause a lot of problems for your mouth and overall health. If you lose one or more, it is best to get them replaced so that they don’t create unnecessary stress on the rest of your natural teeth. One of the options we offer to fix this problem is through implant-retained dentures. At our practice, we offer a couple of implant-retained options such as ball attachment denture, bar attachment denture, and screw-retained denture. Each provides its unique benefits. If you are unsure which option would best suit your dental needs, schedule a consultation with our experts today! 

Partial Dentures

Removable, partial dentures are a great option for replacing one or more missing teeth, giving you back your speech, eating efficiency, and natural appearance. Partial dentures are created out of metal and acrylic. The type of material used will be dependent on the patient’s individual dental needs. Often, metal is preferred as it is thinner and structurally superior. To discover which option would benefit your smile, call our office today!

 

Soft Denture Liners

Soft liners are an essential part of any denture. They provide cushioning and protection for your gums, so you can chew on them without worrying about causing damage or discomfort to the area around them. You may use a soft liner when getting new teeth fitted into old ones as well – these types of prostheses will need some extra care since they won’t have anything hard protecting against trauma like regular full-sized teeth do, which is why we recommend regular visits to our office so our dental professionals can evaluate their condition and make adjustments if necessary.

Denture Relines

The dentures you get should fit your mouth perfectly as it has been designed for the gum tissues. Over time, these muscles change and so does how tight or loose the new set of teeth is with the old ones; this means that over just one year from now – two at most – there could be significant movement, affecting the way you eat and speak. We highly recommend that you come to our office every one to two years to have your dentures professionally relined to improve their function.

Denture Care

Your dentures are an investment and should be treated with care. Routine visits to our office will ensure that they are being properly examined and maintained. If needed, adjustments can be made so that they continue to fit comfortably in your mouth while also functioning at full capacity. In some cases, major repairs may need to be done if there was significant damage to the denture or the base has been worn out, requiring a rebasing. No matter the reason, our experts are here to make sure that your dentures are performing at the maximum level.

To help better take care of your dentures, here are some things that you should know:

  • Your dentist is the only one qualified to diagnose and adjust your dentures or partials.
  • Dentures should be brushed inside and outside daily.
  • Use denture cream instead of toothpaste.
  • Rinse with cold water as hot water can warp your dentures.
  • Inspect your dentures regularly for any wear.

We are dedicated to providing you with the highest quality of care while you get the smile that you deserve.
