Whether you’ve lost one tooth, several teeth, or all of them, you could be a candidate for dentures. Dentures are replacement prosthetic teeth designed to take the place of missing natural teeth. Today’s dentures are composed of an acrylic resin material that looks, feels, and functions a lot like natural teeth. At the office of Greg Campbell, DDS, Long Beach, California, we customize our denture treatments for comfort, function, and esthetic appeal.
Dentures are versatile in that they can replace one tooth, multiple teeth, an entire arch of teeth, or all your teeth, depending on your need. Partial dentures fill in the gaps left by one or several teeth to keep adjacent teeth from shifting. Complete dentures can be made to replace all your missing teeth. Traditional partial and full dentures are removable. You wear them during the day and remove them at night for cleaning. Dr. Greg Campbell also offers the option of implant-supported dentures. These dentures are held in place by implants permanently embedded into your jaw. The implants give your dentures greater stability and support, so they don’t slip or shift which is so beneficial for the end user.
Tooth loss affects how you look, eat, and speak. It leaves unsightly gaps in your smile, making you feel self-conscious about your appearance. By replacing missing teeth with dentures, you can regain all the benefits of having fully functional teeth again. This includes:
The cost of dentures will vary from one person to another, depending on the number of teeth that need to be replaced and the work required for treatment. By taking advantage of our payment plans, you can obtain the denture treatment you need without putting undue stress on your budget.
