Dentures (Partial or Full Removable Dental Restorations) – San Diego, CA*

23 Services ( View All )

Overview

Custom dentures are a good choice if you need to replace missing teeth. Dentures can renew your smile and allow you to eat and speak with full confidence. For patients in San Diego, CA, we can provide either partial or full removable dentures or implant-retained dentures. Full dentures can replace your entire upper arch, lower arch, or both while partial dentures leave some of your natural teeth to act as support. Additionally, implant-retained dentures can replace both upper and lower teeth to give you a more secure option. 

At Dental Express, our team can help you decide whether full or partial dentures match your goals, and then have your dentures custom made to look beautiful. Schedule an appointment with one of our dentists to get more information about dentures.

Best Candidates

If you have suffered the loss of many teeth, you might be a good candidate for removable dentures or implant-retained dentures. However, patients should still have healthy gums and a strong jawbone. If you have natural teeth, they may either be removed for a full denture or kept with a partial. At your initial consultation with our team, we will examine your condition and explain your options based on your needs and goals.

What To Expect

If needed, one of our dentists will extract any natural teeth before taking oral impressions. We use the impressions to make your custom dentures. Partial dentures are colored to match your remaining teeth for an attractive finish. As soon as your dentures are crafted, we will adjust them for security and comfort.

For implant-retained dentures, patients usually require two appointments to complete the process. During the first procedure, we place the implants into the jaw and cover the area with a temporary denture. In five to six months, after the implants have healed, patients come back in to have the permanent denture placed.

Additionally, for any type of procedure, we will talk about methods to care for your custom dentures.

Follow-Up

It may require time before your new dentures feel comfortable, but it should eventually become easier to eat and speak normally. If the full, partial, or implanted dentures feel loose, return to Dental Express to have your dentures adjusted. You will need to clean your dentures with a toothbrush two times every day. Whenever you take out your dentures, you should soak them to prevent them from drying out. You should continue to schedule cleanings and exams at Dental Express so we can check the fit and wear of your restoration and the health of your jaw and gums. We will let you know when you need to have your dentures repaired or replaced, but with proper care, your custom dentures should last for several years.

Insurance Coverage

If you have insurance, some of the cost of your custom dentures is usually paid for. Our office will contact your insurance company to determine your coverage and personal costs. In your initial consultation with our team, we will customize your treatment to match your needs and budget. To help make your dentures affordable with or without dental insurance, Dental Express accepts several forms of payment, including low-interest medical financing.
