Full & Partial Dentures in San Diego
Are missing teeth or uncomfortable dentures making it hard to smile with confidence?
Maybe you know you need dentures, but you think they’ll look fake and obvious and detract from your smile.
We are pleased to tell you that updated dental materials and technology now make it possible to place full or partial dentures that look as much like natural teeth as possible. Dentures at Peak Dental are customized to look completely natural and fit more comfortably than you can imagine. You will be part of the process from start to finish so we know you will be completely satisfied with the results!
There are two types of dentures – full and partial. Both are removable dental appliances that replace missing teeth. We use partials when just a few teeth are missing and complete dentures when you’re missing all your teeth.
Comfortable, Natural-Looking Dentures
The biggest problem for most patients is the fit and comfort of their new dentures. However, dentures today use new materials that are nothing like the rigid appliances you might remember from your grandparents’ day. You don’t have to worry about dentures that irritate sensitive tissue or dig into your gums.
We trust only the highest quality dental labs to create your final denture. The denture consists of a base of dental resin that is shaded to closely match your natural gum tissue. Each tooth is placed separately by hand into the base, allowing for variations that occur with natural teeth.
Dental Implants Add Stability to Dentures
If your partials or dentures move, we have a great solution for you. We’ll make you a beautiful new denture or partial and use dental implants to help lock it in place. This means your denture won’t move like it used to. This is important, especially with lower dentures, which tend to move more than uppers.
Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that are placed in the upper or lower jaw by a trained oral surgeon. During an implant procedure, several implants can be placed in the upper jaw, sometimes eliminating the need for the palate of a full denture. Two or more implants are placed in the lower denture to lock it into place so it won’t move around when you eat or speak.
There’s simply no comparison between removable dentures and implant-retained dentures. All our dentures are designed to fit beautifully and complement your appearance, but our implant-retained dentures provide the ultimate in stability and security. This not only minimizes discomfort but also relieves you of the worry of embarrassing shifts and movement of the denture at the most awkward moments.
