Dentists at Smile Centers Silicon Valley can restore your smile even if all of your teeth are gone. Dentures are used when there are no teeth left, or when they all have to be removed. There are also partial dentures, which usually replace two or more teeth and are connected to other teeth. In some ways, dental implants are replacing dentures, which are artificial teeth. After the initial adjustment, they will feel great, look great, and eating like normal. There are traditional dentures and “immediate” dentures. Traditional ones take a few weeks to be ready after the teeth are removed. Immediate dentures can be placed immediately, but some adjustment will be needed as healing takes place. Immediate dentures allow you to have teeth while you heal and your permanent ones are being made. They should be considered temporary for that reason. Our dentists can help you decide which one is best in your situation.
The same is essentially true for partial dentures. There can be a lot of reasons for partial dentures, such as an injury where some teeth have to be replaced, but there are still some good teeth left. This can also restore your smile, and is good for your overall health to have teeth replaced in some way.
