Take a shine to Murrieta, CA dentist’s well-fitting, natural-looking partial and complete dentures
A classic car enthusiast, Dr. Valerie Scola, appreciates the special beauty that comes with wheels that have either been restored or were treated with tender loving care through the decades. With TLC, you can keep all of your natural teeth. Tooth loss isn’t a normal or natural part of aging. But we also know that new medical conditions and medications can present new challenges to oral health. We also appreciate that you never know what life has in store. Teeth can be lost to other types of trauma, not just tooth decay and gum disease. Dentures and partial dentures in Murrieta, CA, at Scola Family Dentistry, we offer peace of mind. A wide range of systems are available, and they are a far cry from the fake-looking, ill-fitting “false teeth” that have plagued earlier-generation systems.
Dentures that you will forget you are wearing!
The best dentures are the ones that you don’t think about. Many of the common complaints associated with dentures are caused by poor fit. For instance, loose dentures that slide or shift around in your mouth when you eat, speak, or laugh. Likewise, dentures that don’t fit well tend to irritate the inside of the mouth and cause painful sores.
In line with our approach of closely partnering with every patient, we meet with those who are considering dentures many times. We take planning very seriously, to assure that dentures are made to your exact specifications. So, you end up with the perfect fit that assures the most comfortable and efficient function. Lots of planning upfront also assures that your dentures look natural and blend in flawlessly with the rest of your smile and facial features.
It is important to remember that the fit of your dentures can also change over time. Dentures that formerly hugged the contours of your mouth like a glove may start to slide around. We avoid those problems by visiting with you regularly. During routine appointments, we will evaluate for denture fit. Depending on your needs, the denture may require relining, rebasing, or replacement. With conventional full (complete) dentures to replace all teeth and traditional partial dentures to replace several or many teeth, the bone in your jaws doesn’t get the stimulation it once did from behaviors such as chewing, grinding, and mashing food. This situation promotes the loss of the bone that supports your denture as well as overlying facial tissues. This process alters the fit of your denture and, accordingly, the clarity of your speech and chewing ability and comfort.
Dentures for your unique smile
There are many factors to consider when deciding the best denture system for you. We may find that you would be happiest with dentures that are supported by dental implants placed in the jaw. These implants function like tooth roots. So, they hold your denture in place and help to support strong bone. We look forward to introducing you to today’s modern, natural dentures during a visit to our Murrieta, CA office, serving patients in Temecula, Menifee, Wildomar, Lake Elsinore, Sun City, Canyon Lake, and the surrounding areas.
