Dentist in San Jose offers quality dentures
Dentures are one way for patients who are dealing with missing teeth to replace them and achieve full-functioning, beautiful smiles. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala and the team of StarBrite Dental in San Jose believe in providing patients with the services they need to enjoy a smile that will last a lifetime, and in some cases, dentures are the best option.
Dentures come in two varieties for San Jose area patients – full dentures and partial dentures. Patients who are missing a majority of their teeth may decide to have the remaining teeth extracted and full dentures placed on the top, bottom, or both dental arches. Some patients may also decide to place dental implants into the bone of the dental arch to help in stabilizing the dentures. This is another option for patients who are seeking stronger, more stable dentures.
Another type of denture is the partial denture. Partial dentures are made of acrylic and metal framework. They utilize the existing teeth in the smile to hold the denture in place and keep the false teeth where they need to be for full restoration. They snap in and out of the dental arch and are easy to remove, clean, and place. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala finds that many patients don’t mind partial dentures, and they are often the most affordable solution. In fact, many patients with dental insurance will find that dentures are typically covered in part or in whole by their plans, making dentures an economical choice.
