How your dentist in Rancho Cucamonga, CA can help you take care of your dentures.

Dentures are an investment in your smile and yourself. Now that you have dentures, you want to keep them looking great and feeling comfortable, so it’s important to know how to take care of your dentures. Dr. John Stockdale at Renaissance Dental Care in Rancho Cucamonga, CA can help you get the most from your dentures.

There are a few simple, but important things to remember about taking care of your dentures. You need to:

Handle your dentures carefully, so you don’t drop them. Never try to bend the clasps or the plastic.

Remove your dentures and rinse them off after eating; this helps to get rid of food particles which can irritate your tissue.

Before you put the dentures back in, gently clean your mouth out with a soft toothbrush or piece of gauze.

Clean your dentures every day with a denture cleanser, removing food, debris, and denture adhesive.

Don’t sleep with your dentures in overnight; you need to soak the denture in water or denture solution to keep the denture moist and comfortable.

Rinse off any traces of soaking solution before you put the denture back in your mouth.

Visit Dr. Stockdale regularly so he can check the condition and the fit of your denture.

Remember to only use gentle cleaning solutions made for dentures. Never use harsh abrasives, products containing bleach, or sharp tools to clean your denture. Avoid using very hot or boiling water on your denture because it can change the shape of your denture and how it fits.

If you break your denture, you can try to use a temporary repair kit available at pharmacies or grocery stores to get you by until you can see your dentist. The best solution for a damaged or broken denture is to see Dr. Stockdale right away.

Your denture is important to your self-esteem and self-confidence. You want it to give you great benefits for years, so taking care of your denture is critical. To find out more about taking care of dentures, talk with an expert. Call Dr. John Stockdale of Renaissance Dental Care in Rancho Cucamonga, CA at (909) 987-0040. He proudly serves residents of Rancho Cucamonga, North Cucamonga, and Rochester, so call today.

How a denture from your dentist in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, can restore your smile

Have you been thinking about a denture? If you’ve lost your smile, the right denture can restore it! Modern dentistry provides more denture options than ever before. Here at Renaissance Dental Care in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, your dentist, Dr. John Stockdale, offers a full complement of denture types for you to choose from. He proudly serves residents of Rancho Cucamonga, North Cucamonga, and Rochester, CA, and he can help you too.

More about dentures

You want a denture that fits well, is comfortable to wear, and looks natural. Modern denture materials and techniques can help you achieve a smile that is uniquely yours through custom construction. Consider these types of dentures:

Partial dentures, if you need to replace several teeth, but not an entire arch; these dentures come in a few types, including:

  • A transitional partial denture, which is meant as a temporary solution while you are waiting to have dental implants placed
  • A conventional partial denture, which is permanent tooth replacement; conventional partials are sturdy and built-to-last, providing years of excellent tooth replacement.

If you need to replace an entire arch of teeth, you need a full denture, which can be made to replace upper teeth, lower teeth, or both arches of teeth. Full dentures also come in a few types, including:

  • An immediate denture, which is placed right after your teeth are removed; when you choose an immediate denture, you never have to go without teeth. A conventional denture will be made for you after your tissue has healed at 6 to 8 weeks.
  • A conventional denture, which is made after your tissue has healed, usually at 6 to 8 weeks; when you choose a conventional denture, you only have to get used to wearing one denture.
  • An implant-supported denture, also known as an overdenture, which is a special type of denture designed to fit over dental implants; when you choose an implant-supported denture, you will benefit from increased conservation of bone, which can help maintain a strong jawline and youthful facial contours.

Find out how dental implants can restore your smile after tooth loss.

Don’t let tooth loss have the final say when it comes to the health and appearance of your smile. Our Rancho Cucamonga, CA, restorative Elderly Couple With Dental Implantsdentist Dr. John Stockdale offers an amazing solution that both looks and functions just like a real tooth. This tooth replacement is known as a dental implant. Here’s how it works,

Placing the Implant

The implant itself is a small metal screw or post that is inserted into the jawbone where it will serve to replace your missing tooth’s roots. This surgery is minor and can be performed in about 30 minutes under the effects of local anesthesia. Before placing the implant our Rancho Cucamonga, CA, will map out precisely where the implant will need to be placed.

Healing and Osseointegration

Getting dental implants takes time, and some of that time involves allowing your body to heal itself and naturally fuse the implant and jawbone together. This natural fusion is called osseointegration. Once this occurs (over the course of 3-6 months) the screw is now a permanent part of the jawbone. With the proper care, implants offer a very high success rate and can last several decades.

Securing the Abutment

Depending on the type of implant that is placed, you may need to come in for another minor procedure so that we can attach a part known as an abutment to the top of the implant. The abutment is meant to connect the implant, which is under the gums and isn’t visible, with the false tooth (the visible component of the implant). In order to place the abutment a small incision will be made in the gums to reveal the top of the implant before securing the abutment on top.

Fitting the False Tooth

The last step is for our dentist to cement the dental crown onto the top of the abutment. The crown will be custom made based off measurements we will take of your mouth. Of course, if you are missing several teeth then we will place 2-4 implants along the arches of the jawbone to support multiple false teeth.

Renaissance Dental Care wants to make sure that you get the proper restorative dentistry you need after tooth loss. Call our Rancho Cucamonga, CA, dental office today to schedule a consultation with us.

Have you thought of the All-on-4 implant-supported hybrid dentures? Would you like to know more about this procedure from your Rancho Cucamonga, CA, dentist, Dr. John Stockdale?

More About All-on-4 Implant Supported Hybrid Dentures:

Losing teeth is never an easy ordeal. Losing an entire arch of teeth, top and/or bottom, due to trauma or severe decay that requires dental removal, takes a physical and emotional toll on a person. Implant Supported Hybrid Dentures can help take away some of this burden. The All-on-4 Implant Supported Hybrid Dentures look, feel and function just like your natural teeth. You don't have to worry about them slipping while you eat and speak, and they prevent bone loss, which is vital in preventing sagging and/or drooping of your jaws.

How Do All-on-4 Implant Supported Hybrid Dentures Work:

The important thing to know about dental implants is that they replace missing tooth roots and anchor tooth replacements to your jawbone. Dental implants have dentures placed on them, so no one can see them. They also lie under the gum line, which prevents their visibility. Your Cucamonga dentist uses only Nobel Biocare Implants and components, which is a worldwide leader when it comes to implant technology, and one of the main developers of the All-on-4 technique.

The All-on-4 technique is reliable, but every user has unique conditions, which depends on their bone volume and bone density. You need to discuss your situation with Dr. Stockdale who will determine if this procedure is right for you. The goal is to provide you with a solution that works best for you and will ensure a healthier future.

All Procedures are performed by Dr. Stockdale at the Renaissance Dental Care office in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. Just call the office at (909) 987-0040 today!

Are you missing most of your teeth? You don't need a dental implant for each one of your missing teeth. The All-On-4 procedure utilizes all-on-4four implants to replace all teeth on an upper or lower arch. Renaissance Dental Care, which is located in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, offers All-on-4 dental implants to their patients. Here are four ways All-On-4 implants can help you. 

1. Improve Your Appearance

The absence of teeth can ruin a stunning smile. All-on-4 dental implants can fill in the gaps in your smile, improve your appearance, and make you look years younger. Even one missing tooth can change the way your face looks and cause a sunken appearance. All-on-4 implants help prevent premature aging and facial sagging.

2. Enjoy Your Favorite Foods

If you are missing teeth, chewing can become very difficult. All-on-4 dental implants are strong, stable, and extremely durable. All-on-4 dental implants fit, feel, and function just like your own teeth. All-on-4 dental implants will allow you to eat your favorite foods with confidence.

3. Prevent Dental Issues

With All-on-4 implants, you will prevent dental issues associated with missing teeth. After you lose a tooth, the other teeth will begin to drift out of place, with the end result being crookedness, spaces, and misalignment. All-on-4 implants can prevent your remaining teeth from shifting out of place.

4. Improve Your Life

All-on-4 dental implants won't just improve your appearance; they will also elevate your quality of life. With All-on-4 implants, you will feel more confident when smiling and speaking with others. You will feel better. You will look better. You will have a renewed quality of life. Consult with a dentist in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, to find out if All-on-4 implants are right for you.

Call Dr. John Stockdale of Renaissance Dental Care at 909-987-0040 today to schedule a consultation in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. All-on-4 dental implants will do you and your smile a world of good.
