Dentures Q&A

What are dentures?

Dentures are removable or fixed appliances to replace an entire arch of teeth. If you’re missing all of your top teeth, or all of your bottom teeth, dentures can replace them. Partial dentures can replace one or more missing teeth. Not only do dentures give you teeth where you have no natural teeth, but they improve the structure of your face and prevent your cheeks from sinking in. 

Am I a good candidate for dentures?

Anyone missing teeth is a good candidate for dentures. You have a choice of removable dentures that you can take out for cleaning and sleeping, or implant-secured dentures if X-rays indicate your jawbone can support the implant. The team at Ramona Dental Group helps determine whether removable or implant-secured dentures are the right option for you. 

Why should I get dentures?

Not only can dentures improve your smile and restore your confidence in your appearance, but dentures that replace teeth offer a variety of benefits, including:

  • Long-lasting results as dentures last 5-7 years
  • Look and feel like real teeth
  • Choice of removable or implant-secured 
  • Improve ability to eat
  • Improve ability to talk
  • Maintain facial volume

Dentures are especially beneficial to people who try to hide their smile due to missing teeth. When you feel good about your appearance, you’ll have greater self confidence, which can drastically improve your overall quality of life.

How do I care for dentures?

Keeping dentures free from stains requires proper care and is similar to good dental hygiene practices for natural teeth. To maintain the appearance and function of your dentures:

  • Rinse or brush dentures after eating
  • Brush gums, tongue, roof of mouth, and cheeks when removing dentures
  • Brush dentures twice daily
  • Soak dentures in denture cleanser overnight
  • Schedule regular dental checkups

You should schedule an appointment with the Ramona Dental Group if your dentures start feeling loose or cause irritation and sores in your mouth.
