Full and Partial Dentures
Even one or two missing teeth can dramatically affect your smile’s health and function. If you are missing most or all of your teeth, you may struggle to eat comfortably and may be unable to enjoy a healthy diet. You may also feel self-conscious about your appearance. Our Westlake Village full dentures expert can help.
Full Dentures Westlake Village
Full dentures are designed to replace an entire arch of teeth or both arches. They consist of prosthetic teeth on a gum-colored base that is designed to fit over your own gums. Dentures can be supported on their own, or they can be attached to dental implants, which keep the dentures steady and help preserve critical bone tissue. If you are a candidate for full dentures, our expert in full dentures in Westlake Village will begin with a comprehensive evaluation and treatment plan. Dental impressions and other records will be taken to create your new smile.
Partial Dentures Westlake Village
Our Westlake Village partial dentures expert can use partial dentures to replace a few or several missing teeth. Like full dentures, they consist of prosthetic teeth on a gum-colored base.
Once your dentures are ready, you will be able to try them on. Our expert in partial dentures in Westlake Village will make any necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable fit. We will also provide you with instructions for caring for your new smile. We may recommend that you wear them constantly for the first few days, and you may need to return for further adjustments to ensure a comfortable fit. Good dental hygiene continues to be important even after you have received your new smile. Brush twice a day, floss once a day and clean your full or partial dentures as recommended. If you have no remaining teeth, brush your gums and your tongue to remove plaque and bacteria. Visit us every six months for a checkup.
