Dentures in Bankers Hill, San Diego

Amalgam Restorations

Dental amalgam is a safe, durable, and affordable material used to fill cavities and restore damaged teeth. Over the past few decades, more than 100 million Americans have received amalgam restorations. A combination of metals including silver, copper, tin, and mercury bind into a hard, stable substance that protects and strengthens decaying teeth.

Amalgam restorations are also known as silver fillings for the color they create on the chewing surface of treated teeth. However, since most teeth filled with amalgam restorations sit far back in the mouth, they’re rarely visible to others. Dr. Carlo has helped countless patients repair cavities and protect their ongoing oral health using this versatile, budget-friendly restoration material.

Composite Restorations

Composite restorations, also known as tooth-colored fillings, are composed of resin-based substances that create a natural, tooth-like aesthetic.

Although composite restorations are not as durable as amalgam fillings, they offer protection for small-to-midsize fillings and can be used on the front or back teeth. Many patients choose composite fillings to achieve a more natural, attractive appearance.

DENTURES

Dentures offer another tooth replacement alternative. Dr. Carlo works closely with his tooth replacement patients to evaluate the mouth’s condition and determine whether partial dentures, implant-supported dentures, or implants would be the best solution.

PARTIALS

On the other hand, partial dentures are dental prosthetics designed to replace a smaller section of the teeth and the gums. They are intended to fill in the gaps left by lost teeth to create a full, attractive smile.

IMPLANT-SUPPORTED DENTURES AND PARTIALS

Implant-supported dentures are popular as a middle ground for patients who want a solution more advanced than traditional dentures without the complexity of implant restorations. As the name suggests, implant-supported dentures are supported by at least two implants installed in the jawbone, which makes talking, chewing, and biting much easier.

HYBRID DENTURES

Hybrid dentures offer a natural-looking, long-term solution for patients coping with extensive tooth loss. They combine the techniques of a regular denture and a fixed bridge to create a complete replacement for the teeth and gums.

Hybrid dentures are also known as fixed-detachable dentures because they are affixed firmly to the jawbone with dental implants, but can also be detached and removed for cleaning or replacement. Since four to six dental implants create a solid base for the denture, this tooth replacement solution is best for patients with strong, sufficient jawbone remaining.

Which type of denture is right for me?

There is no “one size fits all” solution when it comes to replacing missing or extracted teeth for Bankers Hill area patients. This is why Dr. William V. Carlo is pleased to offer a wide selection of treatment options for individuals of his practice to consider. During an initial evaluation at the practice, patients can speak to our team about their specific concerns. The type of restoration chosen will vary depending on several factors, including how many teeth need to be replaced, the patient’s budget, and the patient’s lifestyle.

How much does a denture cost?

Partial dentures, complete dentures, and implant-supported dentures all have different costs associated with them. To obtain the most accurate information regarding the out-of-pocket expense for dentures and other tooth replacement options, patients are advised to contact their dentist in San Diego to request a consultation.
