If you have missing teeth, they can be replaced at our dental practice, Hurst Dental Care. If you wish to get dentures in San Diego CA, our expert dentist, Dr. Steven T. Hurst or Dr. Bridget M. Hurst, can provide you with removable bridges, also known as dentures.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth. Dentures in San Diego CA are comprised of not only teeth replacements, but of materials used to replace adjacent tissues. Dentures are generally made of acrylic resin. When a patient gets complete dentures, they are getting dentures to replace a full row of teeth. However, when a patient has some permanent teeth still intact, partial dentures will fill in the spaces created by the missing teeth, as well as keep the permanent teeth from moving and changing position. When permanent teeth are able to move, it makes them more susceptible to becoming damaged and may eventually need to be extracted as well. Patients who get complete dentures have generally lost most or all of their teeth. A denture will help the patient in many different ways. First of all, it will vastly improve their appearance. It will also improve the patient’s chewing ability, as well as their ability to speak clearly. A denture will also provide support for facial muscles so that the patient’s face will retain a more youthful appearance. Complete dentures can be made for your upper or lower jaw, or both of your jaws. When you get dentures right after teeth are extracted, they are referred to as immediate dentures. Our dentist will see you prior to tooth extraction and take measurements so that these dentures can be provided to you immediately after the extraction takes place. However, these dentures will be replaced with complete dentures several weeks later. The advantage to immediate dentures is that you will never need to be without teeth during the healing period.
