Thousands of Americans suffer from severe tooth loss every year. People can lose their teeth due to several factors, including decay, gum disease, severe injury, facial trauma, etc. Regardless of how teeth are lost, mouth function can decrease 70-80% if replacement teeth are not utilized. Additionally, speech can suffer, cheeks can begin to have a sunk-in look, and eating and chewing can become a real hassle. Tooth loss can also have a dramatic effect on self-image and make people feel very self-conscious. Instead of struggling with severe tooth loss and its many problems, allow the professionals at Advanced Dental Care to craft you a perfect, functional set of dentures to restore your mouth to prominence once again.

Dentures in Costa Mesa are a convenient solution to treat significant tooth loss. They have undergone various improvements to enhance their fit and function; however, it’s normal to have a few concerns before you’re ready to commit to them. Don’t worry, we’ll explain everything during your initial consultation. While you wait for your visit, here are the answers to a few of the most common questions patients ask us about dentures.
Did you know there are 3 types of dentures? Depending on your severity of tooth loss and preferences, you might be a candidate for partials, full dentures, or implant dentures. Depending on the treatment, the requirements are a little different. For example, partials are recommended for patients who still have most of their teeth, while full dentures are suitable for patients with complete tooth loss in one or both arches. In some cases, dental implants can be used to support dentures, but you’ll need to have adequate bone density.
Tooth loss causes your jawbone to shrink, which can change the shape of your face. Your facial muscles can begin to sag because they won’t have the support they need. Replacing your missing teeth can support the collapsed facial tissues to restore a youthful appearance. It’s best to maintain appointments for adjustments because poorly-fitting dentures can change your facial shape.
Over time, your jaw and gum tissue will change. Unfortunately, your denture won’t adjust to the movements. As a result, it may no longer fit comfortably. Your denture can also begin to slip if it has been exposed to heat or from drying out. Whether your denture is warped, or your mouth’s shape has changed, your denture dentist in Costa Mesa can reline it. A soft reline is recommended if your gums have sensitivity to the weight of the dentures. It provides a cushion between the soft tissues and your denture to reduce any irritation. If you need significant adjustments to your denture, they may need a hard reline, which will require it to be sent to the dental lab. Although you may need to go without your teeth for a few days, you’ll enjoy more lasting results and a comfortable fit.
We always recommend repairing damaged teeth when possible; however, there are times we may suggest having an extraction. We will only remove teeth if it’s necessary, such as from a serious break, decay, or infection. If you’ve lost almost all your natural teeth, they may need to be removed if you’re interested in a denture. If an extraction is in your best interest, we’ll create a personalized treatment plan. Depending on the complexity of your case and the number of teeth needing to be removed, we may be able to perform the procedure in a single appointment. We will explain all your options before moving forward.
