How Do I Know If I Need Dentures?

Dentures have been a reliable tooth replacement option for many years. Thanks to advances in technology, they’re much more comfortable and natural-looking than in the past. Millions of Americans wear dentures, but how do you know if you need them?

Who Needs Dentures?

If you’re already missing several teeth, partial or full dentures can restore your smile. We take impressions of your gum line, so your dentures fit perfectly. Strong adhesives ensure the dentures don’t slip around when you’re wearing them. Partial dentures also use a wire system that attaches to the teeth you have left.

Are you suffering from advanced gum disease, which is known as periodontitis? Gum disease is the #1 cause of adult tooth loss, so we may need to extract some of your teeth if your gum disease is severe enough. You can then be fitted for dentures.

What Kinds of Denture Options Are There?

Traditional dentures, which use acrylic as the main material, can be made as partial or full dentures. Most dentures can be removed, which you should do at night while you sleep. This relaxes your gums and jaw. Implant-supported dentures, which snap on and off, are a great choice for people who want to replace both their teeth and missing tooth roots. Which denture option works best for you depends on factors like your budget, jawbone density, and how many teeth you’re missing.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are extremely competent, friendly and professional. He is very thorough and explains everything very clearly. Finally I feel like I am in good hands when it comes to dental care.

Great overall experience getting a dental cleaning. Very friendly staff, beautifully designed office, and a comfortable experience watching calming Netflix nature programming while in the chair. Complimentary beverages are in the waiting room and so is a little play area for kids.It felt to me that this was a patient-focused family practice as opposed to a cold, corporate dental mill trying to churn through as many patients as possible.I’ll definitely be coming back here for all my dental needs and I highly recommend.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are very welcoming and they provide an excellent experience every time I visit. I’ve only been here twice for annual checkups but would definitely consider and recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good customer experience and a very thoughtful approach to making sure that you feel at home. I have some procedures set up for later in the month and I must actually be the only person in the world actually looking forward to a dentist appointment.

Very confident after leaving the office that my teeth are in greatttt hands. Above and beyond patient care. Very informative visits. A sense that they genuinely care about patient concerns. Added helpful guidelines I took home with me to reach dental hygiene goals before my next visits. Highly recommended you leave your old scary dentist ! 😁😁
