Dentures have been used for centuries as a restorative dentistry treatment to replace missing teeth. Thank goodness, many advancements have been made since the Egyptians made their dentures out of wooden blocks and animal bones! At Bear Valley Dental Care, we offer beautifully crafted dentures that provide full function and a pleasing appearance for those who are seeking tooth replacement.
Dentures replace the teeth by providing a prosthesis to rest in the place of the missing teeth. For those who have lost all of their upper or lower teeth, or both, full or complete dentures are a great solution for restoring your smile. Full dentures replace all of the teeth on either the top or the bottom, whereas complete dentures replace both sets of teeth. At Bear Valley Dental Care, we know that there is no “one-size-fits-all” solution to restoring a smile. Dr. Hyatt creates customized dentures that fit comfortably and restore your smile with a natural appearance. Dentures restore your ability to eat, speak and smile just as you did when you had all of your natural teeth. Dentures also help to support the jaw bone and facial features that begin to change when missing teeth do not support them.
Full or complete dentures are not always necessary. Teeth that have been knocked out and were unable to be placed successfully back into the mouth or were pulled due to damage or decay, typically only need partial dentures for replacement. Partial dentures fill in the gaps where there are missing teeth to create a complete smile once again. They are a good option for those who want to improve the appearance of their smile and get back to eating the foods that they love. Partial dentures are also a good choice for individuals who are not good candidates for dental implants or looking for a less expensive option.
If you are missing some, or all, of your teeth, you can trust the entire team at Bear Valley Dental Care to provide you with personalized attention. Contact our practice to discuss how dentures can restore your smile.
