Restore Your Smile & Functionality

What Are Dentures?

Dentures are custom-made replacements for missing teeth and can be taken out and put back into your mouth. Foothill Family Dental Group offer both partial and full dentures in Glendora, CA, to give patients with varying degrees of tooth loss a tailored solution. Partial dentures are suitable for those who still have some natural teeth, acting as a bridge to fill in the gaps and prevent other teeth from shifting. Full dentures are used when all the natural teeth are missing and can be applied to the upper or lower gum line. Both types of dentures are designed to restore not just the functionality of your teeth but also the appearance of your smile.

What Issues Do They Address?

Dentures are primarily used to solve the problem of missing teeth, which can be the result of injury, decay, or gum disease. They help in improving the ability to chew and speak, which can be significantly affected by the loss of teeth. Additionally, dentures support the facial muscles, preventing the facial sagging that often accompanies tooth loss. By filling in the spaces left by missing teeth, they also discourage the remaining teeth from shifting, which can lead to bite problems and further oral health issues.

What Are the Benefits?

Choosing to get dentures in Glendora, CA, can offer several benefits, including improved oral functionality, enhanced appearance, and increased confidence. Dr. Mariam and Dr. Yara tailor your dentures to match your natural teeth and gums, making them virtually indistinguishable and comfortable to wear. They are also removable, which makes cleaning and maintenance straightforward. For many patients, dentures are a cost-effective solution for replacing missing teeth, providing a significant boost in quality of life without the need for more invasive procedures like dental implants.

  • Impressions and Measurements: Accurate impressions and measurements of your mouth will be taken to ensure your dentures fit comfortably and look natural.
  • Trial Dentures: Before the final dentures are made, you'll receive a trial set to test the fit and appearance. This ensures any adjustments needed can be made for perfect comfort and aesthetics.

Adjusting to new dentures typically takes a few weeks. You may experience some discomfort and an adjustment period as you get used to the fit and feel of your new dentures, but this will diminish over time.

How should I care for my new teeth?

Dentures should be cleaned daily with a soft-bristle brush and denture cleaner. They should also be soaked overnight in a denture solution to keep them moist and maintain their shape. It's important to handle them with care to avoid damage.

Can I eat normally with dentures?

You will need to start with soft foods cut into small pieces and chew slowly using both sides of your mouth. As you adjust, you can gradually return to your normal diet, although sticky and hard foods should be avoided.

How often do I need to replace my dentures?

Cross Icon Image

Dentures typically need to be replaced every 5 to 7 years due to natural changes in your mouth and wear and tear. Regular check-ups with Dr. Mariam or Dr. Yara will help ensure your dentures are in good condition and fit well.
