Dentures are true lifesavers—by filling in gaps or even replacing complete arches of teeth, these restorative devices can help you smileDentures again! Here at Moy Dental in San Leandro, Dr. Stephen Moy places well-fitting, realistic dentures that are customized to fit each patient's needs and preferences. Do you need dentures?


Tooth loss happens

If it has happened to you, your San Leandro dentist can treat you with the help of dentures. These acrylic or acrylic/metal appliances restore oral function, recreate smile aesthetics, optimize speech, and give you youthful facial appearance.

Without dentures, remaining natural teeth move toward the smile gap. Eating and digestion become harder, and then, there's self-confidence. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry says that people notice a smile before any other physical feature. If you can't smile broadly, your social and professional interactions change—and not for the better.


Dentures improve your life

While wearing a partial or full denture takes some adjustment, Dr. Moy tells his patients it's well worth it. After all, with dentures, not only will people notice your great smile, but your oral functions will be stabilized as well!

Here are the types of dentures available through Moy Dental's San Leandro office:

  1. Partial: Likened to a jigsaw puzzle piece, a partial denture consists of pontic (artificial teeth) on a metal frame. The denture attaches to natural teeth with a series of snugly-fitting clips.
  2. Full immediate: This kind of denture goes into place right after tooth extraction. It speeds healing and immediately gives the patient a complete smile.
  3. Conventional: This full denture restores a complete arch of teeth—top or bottom. Made of tooth-colored acrylic, a conventional denture stays in place via the suction of the gums.
  4. Implant-supported: These dentures stay in place with two-to-four surgically inserted titanium implants. Secure and bone-restoring, implant dentures are one of today's most popular and effective tooth replacement solutions.

Whatever your need, Dr. Moy can help you with it—together, you and your dentist will solve your tooth loss problem so you can live your life again!
