Instead of believing that your smile will never be the same again, know that you have treatment options like dentures available to you in San Leandro.Dentures Dentures can be an easy and inexpensive way to replace your smile. Find out more about dentures and whether they are right for you.

Who are ideal candidates for dentures?

The majority of those who have lost some or all of their teeth can benefit from wearing dentures and may be good candidates. Whether we recommend that you get partial or full dentures will depend, however, on the health of your teeth and gums. Ideal candidates will also be non-smokers and dedicated to good oral hygiene.

Those who grind their teeth and those with dry mouth or sensitive gag reflexes may not be ideal candidates and will want to talk to their San Leandro dentist about other tooth replacement options.

What kind of dentures is a good option for my smile?

The first thing we will do is schedule a consultation in which we sit down and discuss your goals for treatment, as well as your medical history, lifestyle factors and habits. Those who are missing all of their teeth will greatly benefit from full dentures. Those who only have a few missing teeth can wear partial dentures; however, the rest of your natural teeth should be healthy and cavity-free.

For those with healthy and strong bones, you can opt for implant-supported dentures. This is a great option for someone who is looking to have their dentures firmly anchored to their gums so there is no threat of slippage. However, candidates must be healthy enough for implants and surgery.

What are the benefits of dentures?

The number one benefit of dentures is that patients can replace their missing teeth and restore their smile. Dentures will make it easier to enjoy meals again and speak more confidently. Plus, your smile’s appearance is significantly improved.

Furthermore, this is a great option for someone on a budget, as this is one of the most inexpensive treatments for replacing teeth.
