Dentures have long been used to replace lost teeth. Dentures fit in the mouth and are kept stable by the arch. Our dentist in Los Angeles can help you decide if dentures are right for you.
If you have lost some or all of your teeth, you may be a candidate for dentures. Virtually anyone can be a candidate for dentures. Dentures are made to fit securely over your gums but can also be stabilized by dental implants. Both types can be a great way to replace missing teeth for patients of all ages who want to restore their smiles.
Although dentures are good for just about anyone who has lost a tooth, some patients may need to take extra precautions. Diabetics are more vulnerable to dental problems and infections, and they may need to schedule more frequent checkups to ensure their dentures are clean and properly fitted. Patients with gum disease may need to undergo periodontal treatments to eliminate the infection and reduce the risk of complications.
Once you have your new dentures, good dental hygiene is important. Brush your gums and tongue daily, and clean your dentures thoroughly before wearing or storing them. Call our expert in dentures in Los Angeles today to learn more or to schedule an appointment with our team.
