Dentures provide dental restoration for North Hollywood area patients
Lost teeth require appropriate treatment to restore the smile’s function and aesthetics. Replacing missing teeth as soon as possible can also maintain the health of the smile and keep the existing teeth from drifting out of place and causing alignment issues. Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat of A-Dental Center in North Hollywood can help patients decide which replacement option would be best for them based on their specific needs. Most patients are proper candidates for dentures.
Dentures are often used in situations when patients are missing one or more teeth. Partial dentures are suitable for patients who are missing one or more teeth from their smiles. They are made of an acrylic and metal framework and are worn at all times to achieve better functionality. For patients who are missing an entire arch of teeth, full dentures are the most economical solution. They replace all the teeth with false teeth and acrylic gums. These restorations are held in place with natural suction or dental adhesives. Some patients may even choose implant-supported dentures, which use dental implants to keep them stable and functional.
Full and partial dentures are economical options for patients who are on a tight budget, and many dental insurance plans can help provide extra coverage to reduce the out-of-pocket costs associated with restorations such as these. The process begins with an examination during which Dr. Fadi Edmond Elzayat can discuss with patients the best restoration for their specific needs, and then preparations begin. This may mean the removal of remaining teeth for full dentures. Impressions are made and are sent to an outside dental laboratory with specific instructions regarding the design of the dentures.
