Why Choose Dentures?
Dentures have a long history in the dental world. Through advanced technologies and specialized prosthodontists, like Cyrus Bandary, DMD, Woodland Hills’ patients have several affordable options to replace their missing teeth. Whether they need a complete arch replaced or a partial fitted denture plate, Dr. Bandary works with a local lab that creates top-notch dental products. Dr. Bandary inspects the denture plates and teaches his patients how to care for them over the long-term.
Dentures fill the gap left by missing teeth and offers patients several benefits that include:
- Keeps adjacent teeth in position
- Naturally blend in with the rest of your smile
- Improve chewing and digestion
- Easy to clean
- Repairs are done in-office
Dental Implants Give Dentures A Better Fit
In addition to complete and partial dentures, Dr. Bandary offers his patient a more permanent, long-term option that combines dentures with dental implants. Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically implanted into your healthy jaw bone. Depending on the type of denture needed (partial or full), a select number of implants are strategically placed to mimic the missing tooth roots. Through a process called osseointegration, the implants fuse to the bone creating a strong, and durable base to secure the denture on.
Implant supported-dentures (fixed) are dentures that are secured to the implants with screws. The denture plates are only removed by the dentist during routine cleanings. This approach gives patients the look and feel of natural teeth as they do not remove them for daily cleaning.
Implant retained-dentures (removable) snap onto the dental implants for a secure fit yet are easy to remove each night. Patients are instructed on how to remove the dentures and how to clean them each night. In the morning, patients snap them back into place for another beautiful smile day. Patients who choose implant retained dentures like the control of everyday cleaning without the threat of their denture slipping out while eating or talking. The dentures do not require yearly cleanings, but Dr. Bandary still recommends routine dental visits to clean any remaining original teeth, examine other oral health concerns and stay on top of any possible restoration needs.
