Removable dentures are an excellent option for replacing one or more missing teeth.
If you have only a few teeth left in your mouth, then Dr. Ivan Ho may recommend a partial denture. A denture consists of a pink, skin-colored frame that supports the artificial teeth. If a patient has lost an entire set of teeth, then Dr. Ivan Ho will recommend a complete removable denture that rests on the gums and contains a full set of upper or lower teeth.
Ivan Ho, DDS, Orange County cosmetic dentist, offers two options for patients who seek complete dentures; conventional and the immediate dentures.
Conventional dentures cannot be placed inside the mouth for several months after extraction of the teeth. This is because the bone and the gums need that time to heal fully. Once healing has completed, Dr. Ivan Ho will begin the process for designing the conventional prosthesis. Immediate dentures are an option for people who don’t want to go without teeth for several months. Dr. Ivan will design these removable appliances even before the extraction of your teeth are extracted. He will then insert them immediately after the extracting the remaining teeth, if required. The only problem with these appliances is that they tend to fit well for only the initial three to six months of use. This is because the gums continually heal and change shape. Therefore, you may need to get them replaced with conventional dentures or have them relined after about six months.
The most obvious benefit of immediate dentures is that you get your smile back immediately after the extraction of your teeth. They also allow you to quickly get used to talking again with your new set of teeth. Schedule your appointment for Dentures in Orange County today!
