At Newbury Dental Group our patients ask Dr. Peyman Saghizadeh, Dr. Sam Saghizadeh about dentures to determine if they are a good solution for their particular needs. As with any dental solution, there are pros and cons to wearing dentures and whether or not they will work for you depends largely on your lifestyle and the goals that you have for your appearance, including the functionality of your smile.
For someone who has lost one or more teeth, dentures provide a long-term resolution for your oral needs. Our dental staff at Newbury Dental Group offer dentures as a means of overcoming damage from injury, disease, or illness. Not only will dentures renew your smile, but it will also restore function after your tooth loss.
What are the types of dentures?
There are three main types of dentures: temporary, partial dentures, and complete dentures.
Dr. Peyman Saghizadeh, Dr. Sam Saghizadeh can provide patients with temporary dentures while they are undergoing a cosmetic dentistry procedure to replace a missing tooth. Temporaries ensure that patients throughout the Newbury Park area have a natural looking smile while waiting for dental implants or a dental bridge to be completed. This is an excellent solution for when a tooth is knocked out during a sports game or in an accident. The temporary denture is secured in place with a metal wire that works like a retainer and can be taken in and out whenever you like. If you are looking for an immediate solution for replacing a missing tooth call 805.375.9383. Keep in mind that a temporary denture is only meant to be worn for a few months and will need to be replaced.
If only a few of your teeth are missing, partial dentures are a good solution for replacing them. Unlike a full set of dentures, these are held in place by a plastic base that is the same color as your gums. A metal framework is typically created in order to secure the base and prevent it from falling out. As long as you have natural teeth in place, you cannot wear a full set, so a partial set of dentures is necessary. We treat patients throughout the 91320 area that want to know if a partial set is better than a cosmetic procedure. They function differently because dentures are removable and cosmetic dentistry solutions are typically permanent. If you live in the Newbury Park CA area, call for your consultation and we can provide you with a list of options to consider.
Newbury Park Dentures and Repair
When all of your teeth are missing, complete dentures can replace them. This is the type of dentures that you typically see in cartoons and movies. Technology has improved in recent years, making them more comfortable and natural looking than ever. Dr. Peyman Saghizadeh, Dr. Sam Saghizadeh can determine if this is the best way to replace your teeth or if an alternative solution will help you to achieve your goals. If you proceed with getting a complete set of dentures, your gums will be healed and ready in eight to 12 weeks after your teeth have been removed. Following teeth removal, the bones and gums will start to shrink. By waiting for up to 12 weeks, you can be sure that your set of complete dentures will fit securely. Many patients throughout California prefer not to wait and get immediate dentures. This solution does not require a waiting period, but there will be adjustments later on after the gums and bone have settled into their permanent size.

How are dentures made?
In order for dentures to be created, patients in CA need to schedule a dental appointment. At this time, the dentist will examine your gums and other teeth to determine if dentures are the best solution for you and if so, what type. A mold will then be taken of your teeth and gums so that the dentures can be created in a dental lab. Typically, several molds or impressions will be made so that the dentist can determine how your jaw functions and moves. Using these impressions, the lab will make a set of dentures that looks natural and fits perfectly. If necessary, adjustments will be made. Dr. Peyman Saghizadeh, Dr. Sam Saghizadeh can discuss the process in more detail during a consultation.
Benefits of Dentures
Patients throughout the 91320 area like how convenient dentures are. Whether you need a full or partial set, dentures can replace teeth in a non-invasive way. There is no surgical element to worry about, and temporary dentures can be fitted immediately. This provides a quick and easy solution. If, however, you are looking for something that feels more natural, you should consider a cosmetic dentistry procedure.
Negatives of Dentures
The biggest challenge with dentures is that they do not feel like natural teeth. Patients of Newbury Dental Group tend to agree that while they are functional, you still have to take care of them as a separate appliance. Other cosmetic dentistry procedures make it easy to forget you ever lost a tooth in the first place. Modern techniques have made dentures more secure and comfortable than they used to be, but they are still a foreign object in your mouth and can become loose when eating or speaking. If you are currently experiencing this problem, call Dr. Peyman Saghizadeh, Dr. Sam Saghizadeh at 805.375.9383 for a consultation.
Patients may enjoy the benefits of alternative options to dentures.There is a procedure that combines implant dentistry with dentures. Those that need complete dentures can benefit by having a secure way to hold their dentures in place. If you live in the Newbury Park CA area, we can examine your gums and let you know if you are a good candidate for the procedure. In this scenario, an impression is taken of your mouth in order to create a denture that will be secured in place using implants. Once created, metal posts will be implanted under your gums, and the dentures secured to it. This way patients get the benefits of how quickly dentures can be created and the convenience of the stability that can only come from using implant technology.
How do I care for my dentures?
Every night you need to take your dentures out. We advise patients to rinse them thoroughly then use a denture brush to remove any food particles before rinsing them again. You also need to brush your gums, tongue, and the roof of your mouth with a soft toothbrush and toothpaste. You can use an antiseptic mouthwash afterwards to kill any lingering bacteria and improve your breath. Your dentures should soak all night then be placed back in the mouth in the morning.
Newbury Park Denture FAQ
Dentures come in three types of prosthetic devices: Partial dentures, Complete denture, and Overdenture. Each of them restores normal tooth function like speaking or eating; while serves as a great alternative where Dental Bridges or Implants are not an option.
Our dentists carefully assess each patient during the first appointment to determine a plan for treatment. First, we will analyze your candidacy for a partial denture, complete denture, or implant retained overdenture. Your dentist will first perform a comprehensive examination for caries and periodontal disease prior to taking molds and extract any teeth that are non-restorable or have extensive gum disease. If any extraction were warranted, you will need some recovery time before the molding occurs since the extraction site has to fully heal to ensure accurate impression of supporting tissue. If you do not need any, we will create an impression during the first visit which hastens the time in which you receive your dentures. When you return for your second appointment, bite registration will be taken if it couldn’t be determined on first initial visit. In addition, teeth size, shape and color will be selected during this visit as well. During the third appointment, teeth try-in in wax will be tried in the mouth to ensure that teeth line up appropriately, and it’s the last chance to make any changes by the patient. At the following appointment the dentures will be delivered. Your dentist will go over with you regarding, long-term maintenance, and after-care.
Partial dentures are considered one type of removable prosthesis, used to replace missing teeth when fixed prosthesis (bridges, implants) are not an option. This type of prosthetic is most useful when some of your natural teeth still present to be used as anchors to stabilize and provide adequate retention to the denture. There are three types of Partial Denture: acrylic, metal combination and valplast. Discuss with your dentist to see which type of removal prosthesis best meets you needs.
Complete Dentures are considered another type of removable prosthesis, used to replace all teeth in one arch or both arches. This type of prosthetic is most useful when no other of form a prosthetic is an option. Complete Denture have the advantage of being able to restore function and create a new beautiful smile. Complete dentures have the benefit of being able to create a smile makeover with no restrictions on color, shape, and length unlike partial dentures.
Overdentures are complete denture that are fastened to the jaw using implants. Overdenture fall under both fixed and removable prosthesis; your dentist will decide whether fixed-screw retained overdenture or removable-snappy type Overdentures will be indicated case by case. Each type has a different advantage, ask your dentist which type best meet your needs. Overdentures are best indicated for patients that are tired of their loose dentures due to poor bone anatomy and bone loss over the years. Overdentures greatly provide stability and retention without the need for denture adhesive to secure them into place. Patients that are interested in overdentures first need to take a CT scan to confirm illegibility for dental implant. Same criteria for implant placement applies here. After confirming that the patient is a good candidate for implants, four implants will be placed in the maxillary arch and two or four implants will be placed in the mandible. Once the implants have osseointegrated into the bone, a lock and key (locator and housing) for snappy type overdenture will be placed in the denture and into the implant to secure them together. Thus, the dentures will become very stable and no more denture adhesive will be necessary. In addition, the Maxillary denture will no longer have the need for acrylic to extend onto the hard palate to create a seal. Thus overdentures will feel a lot more comfort and stability to obtain a more natural organic look and feel. Overdentures are easily removed every night for maintenance and upkeep. Eating steaks with dentures can no longer be a problem with overdetures! If you are missing any of your natural teeth or suffer from decay, you know how difficult it is to perform essential activities like eating, working, or engaging in social functions. It can significantly affect your mood because you lack confidence in your smile. Dentures, therefore, are an excellent choice that enables you to restore your smile while boosting your self-esteem.
