San Jose dentist describes dentures

Dentures are an economical solution for patients who want to address tooth loss and repair their smile afterward to maintain beauty and function. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala of StarBrite Dental in the San Jose area understands the importance of restoring smiles after tooth loss. She knows that without replacing the missing teeth, patients may experience reduced chewing and speaking efficiency, a negative change in their aesthetics, and may even notice the shifting of the existing teeth out of their proper positions. A denture is a wonderful way to keep this from happening.

There are two types of dentures available through StarBrite Dental – partial and full. Partials are best for situations in which patients have lost one or several teeth in the dental arch. These restorations are made of a metal framework that snaps into place in the dental arch to hold them firmly and replace the missing teeth. Full dentures are used when patients have lost their entire arch. This may be due to disease, aging, or extractions. Full dentures are fabricated from acrylic and they include false gum tissue. They are secured with natural suction, dental adhesives, or dental implants.

There are alternatives to dentures – dental implants and dental bridges. Dental implants use the jawbone to stay firmly in place and can provide a lifetime of beautiful smiles, while dental bridges use the existing teeth next to the gap for support of a porcelain restoration. Both are effective methods of replacing the teeth, but some patients are better suited for dentures or desire a removable prosthetic instead of a fixed one.

If you live in the San Jose area and you are seeking restorative options after tooth loss, dentures may be appropriate for you. Speaking with a professional at StarBrite Dental is the best way to achieve a more beautiful, fully functioning smile in an affordable manner. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala suggests patients consider the benefits of full or partial dentures and find out how they can be used within their smile.
