At Hon Van Cao, DDS in Riverside, CA, we understand that having missing teeth can be embarrassing and can cause problems with speaking and chewing. That’s why we offer dentures and partials as a solution.
Dentures are removable prosthetic devices designed to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They come in two types: complete dentures and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. Both types of dentures are custom-made to fit your mouth and are designed to match the shape and color of your remaining natural teeth.
Dentures offer many benefits, including:
- Improved appearance: Dentures can improve your smile and facial appearance, as well as fill out your face and prevent sagging.
- Improved speech: Missing teeth can cause difficulties with speaking, but dentures can improve speech and make it easier to communicate.
- Improved chewing: Dentures can improve your ability to chew and eat a wider variety of foods, which can improve your nutrition and overall health.
- Boost in confidence: Having a full set of teeth can boost your self-esteem and confidence, allowing you to smile and speak with ease.
At Hon Van Cao, DDS, we use the latest technology and techniques to create comfortable and natural-looking dentures and partials. Our experienced team will work with you to create a customized solution that meets your specific needs and preferences.
