Restore Your Smile with Beautiful Dentures in Irvine
Missing or damaged teeth can leave us covering our mouths when we laugh, or simply avoiding smiling when around family or friends. You don’t need to live without laughter. You may just be a good candidate for quality dentures in Irvine. Dr. Ursula Levine offers a number of treatment solutions and cosmetic surgery options that can restore your smile, and definitely give you something to smile about.
Are you a good candidate for dentures?
For some patients, the need for dentures may come earlier in life than expected, so you may be wondering if seeking out dentures in Irvine is the right dental solution for your needs. During your consultation with Dr. Levine you’ll learn more about the current health of your teeth and mouth, and learn whether you are a good candidate for dentures.
If you have missing teeth, teeth that are shifting, or loose teeth, you may also have some bone loss which may mean you aren’t a good candidate for dental implants right now. Missing and shifting teeth can result in gaps that widen, impact healthy remaining teeth, and of course leave you unhappy with your smile.
Advanced periodontal disease can lead to the loss of teeth, loss of bone, and result in a definite loss of your smile. There are any number of dental concerns that could make you a good candidate for dentures. Working with Dr. Levine you’ll be able to determine which options may be best for your needs.
What types of dentures are best for you?
Once you’ve determine that seeking out dentures in Irvine is the route you want to take, you may now be faced with needing to select the type of dentures you’ll get. Dr. Levine will discuss your options with you, after performing a thorough examination of the health of your teeth and your mouth. There are partial dentures, traditional dentures, and some dentures that are used as a temporary solution until your gum tissue has healed enough for a more permanent solution. Some dentures are affixed with a denture cream, while others clip into place with connectors attached to your healthy surrounding teeth.
During your appointment you’ll learn which denture options will work for your dental health and your overall lifestyle needs.
How long will dentures last?
While dentures are durable, and can stand up to the same daily use as your natural teeth, they are not necessarily considered a permanent solution. Your teeth may still be shifting or you may still be a candidate for restorative treatments. Generally speaking, your permanent dentures should last several years. Keeping up with your routine dental examinations will help you to keep your mouth healthy, and of course help to protect the health of your remaining natural teeth. During your examination Dr. Levine can also determine whether your dentures are still a good comfortable fit, and potentially evaluate whether you are in need of a new set.
Keep in mind that it’s important to take care of your dentures, and to maintain a good oral health routine that’ll keep your mouth healthy.
