Transform your smile and life with quality precision-fit dentures￼
It is incredibly satisfying (and a privilege) for our team to get patients with missing teeth “all smiles” again. This process is truly transformative because we see every day firsthand how gaps in our patients’ smiles affect their ability to function, as well as their confidence, sense of self-worth, and pride. Precision-fitted full dentures and partial dentures, expertly designed at All Smiles Dental Studio in Encinitas, California, make all the difference.
The importance of prompt tooth replacement
We know that gaps can mar the appearance of the smile. Tooth loss can present considerable challenges to patients’ abilities to perform basic functions, from speaking to eating. Complications from tooth loss affect our overall well-being and systemic health, interfering with proper digestion and nutrition.
Additionally, the loss of a single tooth can affect the health of existing teeth. For example teeth on either side of a gap can drift into that space. This will cause misalignment of the teeth that would cause difficulty chewing, speaking and keeping your teeth clean. More restorative treatments may be necessary to address these and other complications.
Also, absence of teeth affects the health of the underlying bone and tissue. The bone in the jaw depends on the stimulation it gets from the teeth and their functions (grinding down and ripping apart food) to stay strong and healthy. Bone loss becomes worse the longer you go without replacing teeth. This process can make it even more challenging to eat or otherwise use your existing teeth.
Quality tooth replacement
Dentures are removable false teeth that are made from materials such as acrylic (plastic), nylon, and metal. Our experienced and skilled dentist, Dr. Shahrokh, only uses the finest and most durable materials when restoring portions or all of the missing teeth. Premium materials lead to greater satisfaction with dentures. They are durable and last many years with appropriate care and regular visits to our office as recommended by Dr. Shahrokh. Additionally, fine materials support the most natural appearance and function.
Dentures are designed to fit snugly over the gums or connect to existing teeth via specialized attachments. Complete dentures refer to a “full set” of new teeth. They may be made to replace all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw(s). Partial dentures may be made to replace one tooth or several teeth.
Dr. Shahrokh also emphasizes fit. Complaints about dentures often stem from poor fit. If dentures are not properly designed to the contours of your mouth, they may slide around, cause sores, and interfere with proper speech and efficient chewing.
