“Dentures do more than replace missing teeth—they can help restore confidence and improve the quality of your life.”
—Dr. Vijay Patel

When designing dentures, our dentists take your entire facial structure, color, size, and your personal preferences into consideration. We use modern dental materials that allow for a more natural-looking denture that fits your facial esthetic.

We strive to work with patients to create a denture that feels good and enhances your appearance while supporting improved oral wellness.

Dental Implant Secured Dentures

implant-secured dentures for missing teeth in Claremont California

When choosing dentures patients may opt for securing the denture with dental implants. Qualifying patients can benefit from implant-supported dentures in many ways. Dental implants are surgically placed into healthy bone tissue and fuse with the jaw.

The implants create a stable foundation that anchors the denture in place reducing or eliminating the embarrassment of loose dentures prone to slipping.

Dental implants help to promote healthy bone growth and prevent facial sagging often associated with tooth loss. Dental implant secured dentures make it possible for edentulous patients to enjoy a healthy, varied diet without restriction.

Dentures FAQs

What dangers are associated with tooth loss?

Losing a majority of your teeth can often mean relying on a diet of primarily soft foods, reducing nutritional intake. In addition, you can have trouble speaking clearly and being understood.

The loss of tooth roots also means the body stops sending doses of calcium and phosphorus to the jawbone. Without these nutrients, the jawbone will dissolve and lead to facial collapse which causes a significantly older appearance.

How do full dentures work?

Traditional full dentures are removable and replace all of your teeth. They consist of an acrylic base that mimics the look of natural gum tissue. There is also a full row of lifelike teeth and the prosthetic is held in place with natural suction.

Can dentures be supported with dental implants?

Yes. Multiple implant posts can be inserted into the jaw to support the prosthetic. The denture will be fixed in place, meaning you don’t need to remove it for soaking or maintenance. The implants can also stimulate jawbone growth, helping you avoid the onset of facial collapse.

Dentures & Partials What to Expect

When choosing a denture to replace missing teeth, your Claremont Dental Institute dentist will help you find the option that is right for you. There are several types of dentures, and your budget, cosmetic goals, and oral health will all be taken into consideration when choosing the right denture.

  • Partial dentures- Partial dentures are used to replace several consecutive missing teeth. The partial denture is custom-designed to fit snugly into your bite and helps protect adjacent teeth from damage or loss.
  • Complete dentures- A complete denture is used to replace a full arch or full set of missing teeth. A full set of dentures is ideal for a quick way to repair missing teeth and restore the beauty and function of your smile.
  • Implant-Supported denture or partial- for some patients, dental implants can be used to secure a denture in place improving oral health and the stability of the denture

Denture Relining Services Claremont, CA

Your denture may be slightly uncomfortable at first, and you may take some time to adjust. Over time, dentures expand, and your jaw may change shape. As this occurs, you may find variance in the fit of the denture.

We provide our patients with in-house relining services to improve the comfort of their dentures. We use state-of-the-art digital technology to provide comfortable, seamless-fitting dentures.

  • Soft reline- A soft reline is a preferred method of relining the denture. Your dentist will add a liquid polymer layer to the denture to add extra padding and comfort. Your dentist will work with you to create a comfortable fit and will take the time to make minor adjustments until the denture feels right to you.
  • Hard reline- For more permanent results patients may choose to reshape their denture with a hard reline. Hard relining uses a more dense, durable material to reshape the denture. Hard relining can also be used to repair cracks in the denture to avoid the cost of a new denture.
