Missing teeth make it difficult to eat the foods you love and may hinder your social activities because you feel embarrassed or self-conscious about the way you look.
If you are tired of looking at photos where you’re not smiling, Floresta Plaza Dental can improve your appearance – and your diet – with beautiful, well-fitted dentures.
When you think of dentures, you may have an idea in your mind of big, boxy, fake-looking teeth. Erase that image from your mind! Today’s dentures are natural looking and fit better than ever. We can come up with a look that complements your appearance and makes you feel great about smiling.
Complete Dentures for Missing Teeth
If you are facing dental extractions to remove all of your teeth, we can discuss complete dentures to restore your smile. Typically, complete dentures use a pink, resin base with artificial denture teeth chosen to match your gender, hair color, and age. After all, we want your dentures to look real!
Dr. Ken Torres and Dr. Allea Paras Torres meticulously design dentures to fit great and feel comfortable. Complete lower dentures use your bony ridge to stay in place and your upper denture relies on suction and your jawbone to stay in place.
If you want dentures right after your extractions, we can create immediate dentures, too.
It is still important to keep regular dental appointments at our office so our dentists can check your denture fit, look for and address any sore spots, and perform an oral cancer screening.
Partial Dentures to Complete Your Smile
If you still have some of your natural teeth, we can use them to hold a partial denture in place. We design a partial denture using a resin, metal, or flexible base with artificial denture teeth that we choose to match your existing smile so your smile is uniform.
Caring for your remaining teeth is an essential part of the success of partial denture use because your partial dentures rely on your natural teeth for stability. Brushing, flossing, and regular dental exams and cleanings should be a regular routine!
All-On-4® Implant-Retained Dentures
If your anatomy or bone loss has made it difficult for you to have a traditional denture that fits properly, we can place four dental implants and use them to lock your denture into place.
You will enjoy the added security and confidence that comes with dentures that stay put. You will be able to eat a bigger variety of foods as well as laugh and smile without worry.
