When you lose most or all of your teeth, you lose more than tooth function, you can also lose your self-esteem. Your smile is an indicator of your personality. Without it, the simple pleasures in life like eating tougher foods, or laughing out loud may be more difficult. For senior patients who have lost all or almost all of their teeth, our Fresno dentists offer dentures to replace tooth function and aesthetic appeal. We provide a variety of choices when it comes to dentures so that you can regain your confidence and your ability to speak and chew food with ease.

Immediate Dentures in Fresno

This type of dental restoration involves extraction and tooth replacement in the same day. For teeth that cannot be saved with more conservative treatments, we recommend immediate dentures. During your consultation appointment, our Fresno dentists will take an impression of your mouth for the fabrication of your dentures so that they can fit comfortably. After tooth extraction, the custom shaped immediate dentures are placed over your gums, aiding in the healing process. After the procedure, you will wear your dentures for 72 consecutive hours.

Implant Dentures in Fresno

These popular restorations combine the multi-tooth replacement of dentures with the security of dental implants. Also called hybrid dentures, implant dentures use four dental implants to anchor the restoration in place. Implant dentures can be removable or fixed depending on your preference and dental health. Both the dental implant and the dentures are shaped to look like natural teeth fit to your facial structure and needs.
