Dentures in Santa Clara
High-quality, natural-looking dentures
When all teeth are missing or need extracting, dentures have long been the standard teeth replacement solution. Dr. Jayne provides high-quality dentures of all kinds, and offers modern methods of denture stabilization to give you a denture that won’t slip and has more chewing power.
If your teeth are missing, need to be extracted, or if you’re uncomfortable with your existing dentures, Dr. Jayne will give you options and help you decide what to do about replacing your teeth. She is experienced in making dentures and knows the pros and cons of different tooth replacement solutions.
Dr. Jayne provides an inexpensive comprehensive Exam, X-rays and Consultation for people who would like to determine what route would be best to take in replacing, or saving, their teeth. For patients interested in dental implants, she offers a Free Dental Implant Consultation, in which you can discuss the pros and cons of implants versus other forms of tooth replacement options, and see which would work best for you.
Denture Stabilization with Dental Implants
One of the common complaints about dentures is the difficulty in keeping them securely in place. This is because over time, there is bone loss that causes the bony ridge to shrink back, causing the dentures to become loose. This requires continuous relining and replacement of dentures.
To keep your dentures secure, Dr. Jayne recommends dental implants that specially fitted dentures will snap onto. The more implants used, the greater the stability and the more natural-looking we can make your dentures look.
Dr. Jayne can also retrofit your existing dentures to snap onto implants to give you no-slip, no-adhesive dentures!
Why use Dental Implants to stabilize Dentures
When teeth have been missing for a long time, the bone underneath the gum shrinks away due to lack of the stimulation normally provided by chewing. Not only does this make dentures loose, but it also greatly ages the person’s appearance. Additionally, the loose dentures can cause discomfort or embarrassment when eating and speaking.
With dentures, you only have a fraction of the normal chewing power. This makes it hard to eat the healthy foods you enjoy. With denture stabilization, your chewing power is greatly increased!
Types of dentures we offer
Dr. Jayne can make you a set of natural-looking, comfortable dentures. These require that all teeth be removed and your dentures are fitted over your gums and kept in place with adhesive.
Traditional partial dentures are held in place by metal clasps that go around existing teeth to secure the partial dentures in place.
With flexible, no-metal partials (some with a cosmetic clasp), no one will notice you’re wearing a partial denture.
Dr. Jayne will place these immediately after any teeth are extracted so you can leave our office with esthetically pleasing, comfortable, temporary dentures. You wear these while your gums heal prior to permanent dentures being placed.
Implant-supported dentures are removable and snap securely over a ball and socket.
Dr. Jayne can retrofit your existing dentures by supporting them with implants to make them more stable and comfortable, requiring no adhesive.
