Some patients may choose to restore their missing teeth with dentures. Dentures are removable prosthetic teeth. A partial denture replaces a few missing teeth while a complete denture replaces all missing teeth in either the upper or lower jaw.
When teeth are lost then some of the supporting bone shrinks away too. This can cause the facial muscles to sag and your face to change. It can compromise your chewing function. Dentures can replace the missing teeth and add support for your facial structures.
Our office in Poway can make many different types of dentures depending on what suits you best. There are acrylic dentures, dentures with a metal framework, flexible dentures, dentures attached to teeth and dentures attached to dental implants.
Poway dentist Dr. Joe N.T. Nguyen takes many measurements to make sure the position of teeth, height, size and bite are correct for your new dentures.
