Full & Partial Dentures in La Mesa
Missing teeth cause a host of problems from jawbone deterioration, difficulty speaking and eating to low self-esteem. Dr. Johnson advises all his patients “Don't give up on your smile!” Advances in dental materials and technology have made complete and partial dentures more lifelike and natural looking, not to mention extremely comfortable.
A partial denture consists of multiple teeth on a metal frame and a gum colored plastic base to replace the missing teeth. A partial denture is normally secured with clips or brackets, but unlike a bridge, it is removable. A complete denture replaces all the teeth of the upper or lower jaw on a gum-colored plastic base.
Implant-Supported Dentures: Dental implants are small titanium posts anchored into the jawbone which may be used to secure a complete or partial denture in the mouth. There are many different variations of securing the missing teeth to the implants, but they all increase the security, stability, and function of the dentures. Dr. Johnson will recommend the most appropriate treatment for you.
