At Seaport Family Dental in Redwood City, CA, we specialize in providing high-quality dentures to patients seeking to restore functionality and aesthetics to their smile. Led by Dr. Steve Deng, our team is dedicated to offering personalized denture solutions, ensuring comfort, and enhancing the quality of life for our patients.

Indicators That Dentures May Be Needed

Consider exploring denture options if you experience:

  • Loss of several or all teeth.
  • Difficulty in chewing or speaking due to missing teeth.
  • Significant tooth decay or gum disease leading to tooth loss.
  • The desire for an improved smile and facial structure support.

The Importance of Dentures

Dentures are not just about aesthetics; they are crucial in maintaining oral health and functionality. They support facial muscles, aiding in speaking, chewing, and maintaining a natural facial appearance. Dentures also help distribute oral forces evenly, preventing the overuse of remaining natural teeth.

Our Denture Treatment Process

The process of getting dentures at Seaport Family Dental involves:

  • Initial Consultation: Dr. Deng assesses your oral health and discusses denture options.
  • Mouth Impressions: Taking precise impressions of your mouth for custom dentures.
  • Denture Fabrication: Crafting dentures to fit comfortably and look natural.
  • Fitting Appointment: Adjusting and ensuring a perfect fit of the dentures.
  • Follow-up Care: Monitoring the fit and making adjustments as needed.

Caring for Your Dentures

To maintain your dentures and oral health:

  • Clean your dentures daily using a soft-bristled brush and specialized denture cleaner.
  • Handle your dentures gently to avoid bending or damaging the plastic or clasps.
  • Soak your dentures overnight in a denture-cleaning solution or water to keep them moist and maintain their shape.
  • Rinse dentures thoroughly before putting them back in your mouth, especially if using a denture-soaking solution.
  • Avoid using abrasive cleaning materials like harsh toothpaste or strong cleaners, as they can scratch dentures.
  • Keep your gums and any remaining natural teeth clean by brushing with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste.
  • Massage and rinse your gums daily with lukewarm saltwater to stimulate circulation and help maintain healthy tissue.
  • Regularly visit Dr. Steve Deng for denture check-ups and adjustments to ensure optimal fit and comfort.

A Journey Towards Renewed Confidence
