We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the outstanding quality and ease of today’s dentures. Whether you need a full set, a partial, or a reline, our dentists in Woodland Hills, CA will take great care to ensure that your dentures are as comfortable and affordable as possible.
There are three types of dentures. Conventional dentures are a complete denture made and placed after all the teeth have been removed. Immediate dentures are made before the teeth are removed and are ready to be inserted on the same day of extraction. While the patient does not have to go without teeth for any period of time with this type of denture, it does require return visits to the dentist for adjustments as the tissues shrink and heal. The last type of denture is an over-denture, which fits over any teeth that remain in order to preserve the jawbone and provide stability and support for the denture.
West Hills & Woodland Hills, CA Dentures
A new pair of dentures normally takes several appointments, during which highly accurate molds and measurements are taken of your mouth. This may take several weeks, but you should find that the time investment in being as accurate as possible will pay off in the fit of the dentures. After taking the measurements, we’ll send your information to our lab so they can fabricate your custom dentures. Our lab uses high-quality materials and has an extremely accurate manufacturing process, which means they usually get a great fit on the first try.
Maintaining Your Dentures
Care for dentures is the same as for natural teeth, with brushing to clean the mouth and dentures. When not in use, your dentures should be kept in water to prevent warping.
If you decide to stabilize your dentures with dental implants, our dentists in Woodland Hills, CA will even retrofit your current dentures to save you the hassle of buying a new pair!
The overall quality of your dental experience is very important to us.
This is THE place to go for your dental needs. You walk in and see their beautiful lobby that has a really big and soothing aquarium. They offer you snacks and drinks and the front desk girls always have a smile on their faces. The rooms are gorgeous! They even have those little cameras that take pictures of your teeth so you can see them (that was helpful because I had a crack on my tooth that I didn’t think it was a big deal until I saw it with the camera, ew!). The doctors are amazing. They didn’t try to sell me any treatment, but told me that their job was to educate me about oral health and my options, so I didn’t feel any pressure to proceed with anything I wasn’t comfortable with. I will come here for the rest of my life!
Just had work done by Dr. Mike Salekian today and was so impressed with how smoothly everything went!!!! I am usually terrified of the dentist (especially the numbing shots) but Dr. Mike was so gentle I honestly didn’t even feel him numbing me. He was very thorough at explaining everything so I felt comfortable the entire time. He is a very compassionate guy and truly cares about his patients. The assistant, Chris, is amazing too!! I highly recommend going to see them for any of your dental needs! You’ll be happy that you did! The front office is very accommodating when it comes to utilizing your insurance and making sure things are good on the financial side.
Recently, I was told I would be seeing a new dentist, Dr. Mike,by the excellent staff at West Hills Smile. After the first visit, I found Dr. Mike incredibly kind and very knowledgeable. We proceed with the treatment plan, and Dr. Mike continuously checked in while he was doing the procedure. Everything went fine, and it felt quick and painless. With the excellent care I received by Dr. Mike and continued support of the already great staff, I recommend this office. In my experience the staff is just as caring and willing to work with you as well. They go above and beyond, and really want to hear from you before a plan is in place, during your visit, and afterward if anything should pop up.
