If you have missing teeth, dentures may be a good choice for you. Dentures are a good option for patients who are not suitable candidates for dental implants or who want a more affordable alternative to other treatments. Whether you are missing one or all of your teeth, Dr. Hoang Truong will be sure to find the proper dentures solution for you. We invite you to call Gateway Oaks Dental at 916-649-0249 to learn more about dentures in Sacramento, California, and make your appointment with our dentist.
Dentures are removable tooth replacements that fill in the gaps left by missing teeth. Dentures can be partial or full sets of teeth. Full dentures are prosthetic teeth that replace a full arch of missing teeth, whether upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. Partial dentures are used to replace some or several missing teeth when some of the natural teeth still remain by attaching to the remaining teeth. Each type of dentures has its own benefits, and we will work with you to determine which solution is optimal for your smile.
When it is determined that you are a good candidate for dentures, we will take impressions of your gums to ensure that your dentures have a good fit. Once the dentures are created in the dental lab, you can begin to wear them daily. Your dentures may take getting used to, and there may be soreness in the beginning, but this should resolve itself within a short time.
Gateway Oaks Dental also offers implant-supported dentures as an alternative to implants and traditional dentures. These specialized dentures rest on the soft tissue of your jaw and are secured with attachments to several implants to provide you with greater stability.
If you have any questions about dentures, or think that dentures may be right for you, please contact our office to schedule an appointment with our friendly dentist.
