Many Americans suffer from tooth and tissue loss for different reasons. Some deteriorate over time due to age. Others are caused by disease or injury. No matter what the cause may be, dentures are a solution offered by cosmetic dentistry offices because of their cost and convenience.
Our dentist in El Cajon gives patients options. The first is a full set of dentures to replace all the teeth and tissue that they’re missing. Some patients who experience tooth decay or have lost many teeth opt to have the rest pulled so they can be fitted for top and bottom dentures.
The second option is a partial. If a person still has at least one tooth in their upper or lower jar, they’re given a bridge containing replacement teeth. They are attached to a pink or gum colored base that can be removed to be cleaned or at night when a person is ready to sleep.
