If you are considering a denture, you might be wondering about the different options to choose from. What will work best for you? Which one should you choose? These are all great questions that Dr. John Stockdale at Renaissance Dental Care in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, wants to help you with. 

You might need a new denture if you have missing or damaged teeth, or if you’ve worn a denture for a long time. Modern denture materials can provide a denture that looks natural and helps you enjoy the foods you love. The right new denture can restore your self-esteem and confidence too.

A full denture is a great choice if you want to replace an entire upper or lower arch of teeth. If you need a full denture, you can choose from:

  • An immediate denture, which is delivered immediately after your teeth are removed; this type of denture has the advantage of you leaving the office with a full set of teeth. After the area has healed completely, a second permanent denture will be made.
  • A conventional denture, which is created and placed over healed tissue after 6 to 8 weeks; conventional dentures are great because you only have to become accustomed to one denture.
  • An overdenture, which uses dental implants or retained root tips to provide support and conserve the bone in your jaws; the overdenture is simply snapped in place over the implants or root tips.

A partial denture is the choice to make if you only want to replace a few teeth and not an entire arch. If you need a partial denture, you can choose from:

  • A transitional partial denture, a great choice if you want to move on to dental implants and don’t want to live without teeth; transitional partial dentures are a temporary choice and are often less expensive.
  • A removable partial denture, the perfect choice if you don’t want implants later; removable partial dentures are made of strong, sturdy materials that will last.

You deserve a denture that enhances your appearance and your life. For more information about tooth replacement options call Dr. John Stockdale at Renaissance Dental Care in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, today! To reach our office, call 909-987-0040.

When was the last time you paid Dr. John Stockdale a visit? If you're like many people, chances are it was more than six months ago. We hear the reasons why people neglect regular dental visits all the time: lack of money or quality dental insurance, busy schedules, and fear. However, your twice-yearly checkups are so important for your dental health and for your overall health as well.

You may brush your teeth twice a day and even floss, and your teeth may feel fine, but regular dental checkups with Renaissance Dental Care in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, aren’t about addressing problems and reacting — they are about cavity prevention. No matter how much you brush and floss, there is still a chance that food or other debris can get lodged between your teeth, and there is also a chance that food and beverages can wear down your tooth enamel in between visits, making your teeth vulnerable to decay.

In addition to a thorough tooth cleaning and polishing, these regular visits help us detect and prevent the onset of tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease. During your visit, we’ll check the health of your mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue. We’ll also check old fillings and restorations, as these can wear away over time from constant chewing, grinding, or clenching.

It's important to know that the majority of dental problems do not become visible or painful until they are highly advanced. And, unfortunately, serious oral issues are painful and expensive to treat. A deep cleaning twice a year by our team at Renaissance Dental Care in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, is the best way to hit all the spots you may have missed with brushing and flossing and prevent any problems that may have gone unseen.

Make sure your teeth get the professional attention they deserve! If you’re overdue for your next cleaning, please give us a call to schedule an appointment with Dr. John Stockdale at (909) 987-0040.

Teeth restoration is a necessary process that helps to keep your oral health strong and protected for years to come. At Renaissance Dental Care, Dr. John Stockdale can perform many different procedures, including providing CEREC in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. But what exactly does this acronym mean, and how can it benefit you? Let's take a look into this topic to help you figure out what is happening. 

What is This Substance? 

This unique medical technology was invented recently to help improve oral health and dental appearance. It stands for Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics. This process uses a strong ceramic material that matches the natural color of your teeth to repair cracks, breaks, and more. 

It starts by using Computer-Aided Design or CAD technology that uses pictures based on your damaged tooth to restore your tooth. Taking no more than one hour from beginning to end, this restoration method is becoming a standard option for many people throughout California. 

What are the Benefits of a Rancho Cucamonga, CA CEREC Treatment? 

If you're interested in this treatment option, it is vital to understand its many benefits. Just a few reasons why dentists use this process include:

  • Minimal Visitation Needs – Unlike many restoration methods, this option requires just one visit, meaning you can get in and out without a lot of wasted time. 
  • Increased Accuracy – The unique CAD-assisted design method helps to produce a very accurate restoration process for your dental needs. 
  • Improved Natural Appearance – This restoration method uses natural-looking filling materials that look as close to your regular tooth as possible. 
  • Long-Lasting Results – This restoration should last many years without any significant maintenance, providing you with more robust overall oral health. 

These benefits make this care option a valuable option for many people. For example, if you want a long-lasting restoration that won't adversely affect your aesthetic appearance, you should seriously consider this treatment method.

Tags: Dentures   Implants   All On 4  

Those in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, looking to replace the gaps left in their mouth from missing teeth may want to consider looking into getting dental implants. However, before going to the dentist and getting dental implants, it is vital to learn the difference between the implants, dentures, and All on 4. Making the best decision depends upon knowing the difference between all of your options. Those with questions about the different dental prosthetics should call to schedule an appointment with Dr. John Stockdale at Renaissance Dental Care. 

Dentures

Dentures are removable, replacements for missing teeth. Complete dentures are used when most teeth are missing and generally ready for placement about eight to 12 weeks after removing the teeth. Partial dentures are still removable and only consist of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base and used when one or more of the mouth’s natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. 

Dental Implants

Dental implants differ from dentures as they are a more permanent solution to missing teeth. The dental implant is surgically secured into the jawbone and fuses to the bone over a few months. Then, a crown is secured over the implant to serve as the replacement tooth, which appears like a natural-looking tooth. Your Rancho Cucamonga, CA dentist, can help explain how the dental implant process works.  

All On 4

All on 4 is a hybrid denture that is mounted on the jaw using four implants. This type of tooth replacement treatment can replace both the upper and lower arches. This treatment is also permanent and can only be removed by a dentist. 

When looking to replace your teeth or fill in the gaps in your mouth, learning about the different dental prosthetics available can help you decide which option to get. Those considering dental implants in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, should speak with Dr. Stockdale at Renaissance Dental Care. Call (909) 987-0040 today to schedule your appointment.

Tags: Partial Crowns  

With restorative dentistry, tooth damage doesn't always have to result in tooth extraction. Your dentist at Renaissance Dental Care, Dr. John Stockdale, will help restore your tooth damage with full dental crowns, partial dental crowns, or CEREC in Rancho Cucamonga, CA.

What Are Partial Crowns?

Dental restorations such as partial crowns, full crowns, and CEREC in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, ensure that you won't lose your teeth to damage. Partial crowns help strengthen your teeth following mild to moderate damage. A partial dental crown is a great option for dental damage that's beyond a simple tooth filling but doesn't require a full crown.

Inlays and Onlays are partial crown types made to fit into your natural teeth perfectly. Treatment for your underlying dental problems such as tooth decay comes first before your partial crowns installation.

The Difference Between Inlays and Onlays

The difference between inlays and Onlays resides in where they are applied and the degree of dental damage they can correct. Inlays lie within your tooth cusps while Onlays extend further to cover multiple cusps.

Despite this difference, Inlays and Onlays are pretty similar. Inlays and Onlays comprise of the same materials and help reinforce weak teeth. The installation process for Inlays and Onlays is also the same. This process begins with a dental consultation where your dentist determines what type of tooth restoration will work best for you. Tinting your dental restorations such as partial crowns ensures they are the perfect color and blend right in with your smile.

Types of Partial Crowns

Your partial dental crowns may be composed of:

  • Composite Resin - Composite resin looks natural but may also be prone to damage and staining
  • Porcelain - Porcelain resists staining and looks natural. Porcelain partial crowns are also durable

A visit to Dr. Stockdale, your dentist at Renaissance Dental Care, will determine which dental restoration such as full dental crowns, partial dental crowns, and CEREC in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, is best for you. Call (909) 987-0040 to schedule your dental visit today.
