Complete & Partial Dentures in Los Angeles

Both full and partial dentures are available at Mid-Wilshire Dental Care in Los Angeles.

A denture is a dental appliance made to replace missing teeth that can be removed. If you are missing all of your teeth, complete dentures will be used. If you are missing a portion of your teeth, then a partial will be used. Dentures have been around for many, many years and have come a long way since their ancient ancestors. Modern dentures are strong and, with proper care, can last for a very long time. The skilled staff at Mid-Wilshire Dental Care is excited to help you restore your smile with dentures.

When you arrive for your denture appointment, Dr. Bijan Afar will go over all of your options and answer any questions that you may have. Then he will come up with a treatment plan specific to you. You will then be fitted for your dentures, and when they arrive, he will make sure that they are a perfect fit. Dentures do take a little getting used to. You may have some extra saliva, speech problems, or minor irritation, but don’t worry - those will go away soon. It is important to make regular follow-ups to see if any adjustments are needed. Good oral hygiene is still recommended with dentures, and you should brush your gums and tongue and make sure to keep your dentures clean. Give us a call today so we can help see if dentures are the best choice for you.

Beautiful Natural Dentures

Dentures, commonly referred to as false teeth, serve as replacements for missing or extracted teeth. Here are some things you should know about dentures:

    Adhesives: Dentures that are properly fitted do not require adhesives or strips to keep them in place.
    Implants: Dentures supported by implants can drastically improved stability for more natural biting and chewing.
    Time Out: Gums need rest - make sure that you remove dentures at night to reduce the risk of yeast infections and bone loss.
    At-Home Care: Soak dentures over night in tap water or with soaking tablets, and clean by brushing every morning.

“They are the best. From Dr. Afar to Dr. Morim to Azi, and the women at the front desk who care about pronouncing my name correctly. I had HMO insurance but when they switched to PPO, I switched too - because I don't want another dentist office!”
