Comfortably Replacing Missing Teeth to Restore Your Smile’s Look and Functionality
If you have several of all of your teeth missing, you know just how difficult it can be to perform seemingly simple things, such as talking and eating. Many people, in fact, become embarrassed about not only the lack of functionality their mouth now has but also the appearance of a partially or completely missing smile. At Sunshine Dental Group, we do not want you to live a life where you are self-conscious about your smile, which is why we offer both partial and complete dentures in El Monte, California.
Dentures are a removable dental appliance that is custom-made to fit your mouth and replace your missing teeth. Whether you require a partial or complete denture, you can quickly regain your ability to speak, eat and live normally once again. If you are looking for dental replacements that do not need to be removed, dentures can also be permanently held in place with dental implants.
After you receive dentures, it is important that you take proper care of them to ensure that they last and remain comfortable. It may take some time to get used to your new dentures. To help yourself ease into your new teeth, Dr. Jorge de la Osa and his associate dentists recommend that you spend the first few days eating soft foods in small amounts. You can also practice speaking with your new teeth to help your tongue and lips become comfortable working with your new dental appliance.
Remove your dentures each night and let the soak in a denture cleaning solution. Rinse your dentures after eating and before bed, but do not use hot water. When you are not wearing your dentures, keep them in a protective case. If your dentures become damaged in any way, you can visit our practice for any needed repairs.
If you have any questions about whether dentures are right for you or about how to care for your dentures, feel free to give us a call! Our team is here and happy to help!
