Sunnyvale, CA dentists offer dentures

Restoring the smile after tooth loss is vital to ensuring a beautiful, healthy smile. At the denture clinic of Drs. Todd S. Adams and Derek H. Tang in Sunnyvale, CA, patients can ask about the different dentures available to them to replace missing teeth.

What are dentures?

Dentures are special prosthetics that are designed to replace one or more teeth in the smile. These restorations vary depending on the type of denture.

What types of dentures are available?

There are three primary types of dentures for patients who visit the practice of Drs. Todd S. Adams and Derek H. Tang:

  • Partial denture – a partial denture is an oral appliance that works to replace one or more teeth in the dental arch using an acrylic and metal frame.
  • Full denture – also known as a “complete denture,” the full denture is used to replace all the teeth in the upper and the lower dental arch. This type is made of acrylic and includes false teeth and gums.
  • An implant-retained denture is a more conservative denture made to replace all the teeth in the dental arch. However, it includes only false teeth and is held in place with several dental implants placed along the arc.

What are dentures made of?

Dentures are often made of a combination of metal and acrylic materials that both stand up to daily use and can be adjusted as needed for optimum comfort and fit.

Which type of denture is right for me?

Many patients are unsure which type of denture they should choose for their smile. Drs. Todd S. Adams and Derek H. Tang encourage patients to work with a professional to determine the best variety for their unique situation, needs, budget, and lifestyle.
