Dr. Rocha and her caring dental team will do all they can to help you preserve your natural teeth with careful preventative dentistry practices and conservative treatments. However, sometimes the best decision for your optimal dental health is tooth extraction and oral surgery, replacing your natural teeth with dentures. Dr. Sonia Rocha has the experience and state of the art technology to fill in those gaps and restore your winning smile by placing partial or full dentures as needed. Dr. Rocha gets it – and knows you want to look whole and be able to smile happily again! A natural-looking denture will be your answer to this happy smile, as it is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues.
Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain, while complete dentures are used to completely replace all teeth. Dentures are made to match your natural teeth, so there should be no noticeable change to your appearance. Dentures may even improve your smile – a dentalrestoration that will certainly be pleasing to you! Complete, or full, dentures may need adjustments over time, to adjust to your mouth and gums, so are removable for these adjustments. Partial dentures can also be “fixed” into your mouth, by being cemented in and supported by surrounding teeth. A clear advantage to having partial dentures is to keep your surrounding teeth from shifting into the empty spaces, as well as completing your teeth span, which optimizes your overall dental health.
