Denture Solutions Help Rebuild Quality of Life
All dentures are not created equal. When you need to replace missing teeth, it is worth your time, health and money to consider your options before making a decision. Dr. Campbell and Dr. Marler take care to educate their patients for best informed decisions. The staff at Marler Campbell Dental Group work together to optimize patient care. It is important for patient health and well-being to create dentures that comfortable fit throughout the day.
What are Dentures?
Dentures, also known as “false teeth” and “dental plates”, are prosthetic devices that take the place and function of natural teeth. Dentures can be either “partial” or “complete”. Partial indicates replacement of some teeth with some natural teeth remaining, whereas complete indicates total tooth replacement for the upper, lower or both palates..
Living without teeth can be challenging – not only is it difficult to bite, chew and speak properly, it can also adversely affect the long-term oral health. Without the support of neighboring teeth, any remaining teeth can shift and create additional problems. It is important to have well-designed dentures that are comfortable and fit the structure of each patient’s mouth to prevent discomfort and promote full day use.
Complete Denture Care in Escondido
Dr. Marler and Dr. Campbell work with a local lab in Escondido to create the best-fitting, customized plates. The doctors are experienced with implant-supported dentures too. This more permanent options gives patients a more secure fit as the plates are designed to snap over implants that are securely fused to the jaw bone. Implant retained dentures are a great option to promote the optimum oral health. The implants support gum and bone health for a more complete solution. Drs. Marler and Campbell work closely with local surgeons to create the best treatment plan for long-lasting results. Patients can expect an education that covers the process as well as restoration care.

Dentures don't mean the end to regular dental checkups. In fact, caring for your dentures requires diligence and a daily cleaning routine. Routine dental visits are essential for your overall health and well-being. Dr. Marler and Dr. Campbell examine patients for both mechanical and oral health issues.
