If you’ve had multiple teeth lost to severe tooth decay or chronic gum disease, it can compromise your ability to chew food. This could also affect the appearance of your smile or place other limitations on your quality of life.
To address a situation like this, Dr. Ricky Chung might recommend having some or all of your remaining teeth extracted before fitting you for a custom set of dentures. This can effectively restore the full function and appearance of your teeth for a long time.
After any relevant or compromised teeth have been extracted and your gums have been sutured,your dentist will make an impression of the mouth. This impression will be sent to the dental lab to serve as a guide for crafting your custom dentures.
Your dentures will be custom fit to the unique shape of your mouth. However, many denture wearers like to use denture adhesive for an extra-secure hold. Denture adhesive can also block out stray food particles from getting between the base of the dentures and your gums.
If you have multiple missing or compromised teeth, you should contact Palm Court Dental at 909-829-3994 to see if you’re a good candidate for dentures in Fontana, California. Your dentist and dental team are happy to help you!
