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!
