The satisfaction that patients get with their dentures starts with the quality and fit of those replacement teeth. So, you have arrived at the right place for exceptional, precision dentures in Beverly Hills, California. Our team at Beverly Hills Advanced Specialties of Dentistry is led by prosthodontist Dr. Frank Vidjak and endodontist Dr. Fanny Yacaman.
As a prosthodontist, Dr. Vidjak is skilled and experienced at designing new teeth. His exacting planning, attention to detail, and precise technologies support the most lifelike and long-lasting dentures available to those individuals who are missing several teeth or all of their teeth in the upper and/or lower dental arches.
Dentures are designed to replicate the structure and appearance of the teeth and gums. Our dentures are made from durable materials and are perfectly color-matched, so they do not look like fake “false teeth.” Since they are placed on soft tissues, dentures must conform to the contours of the mouth. Ill-fitting dentures give rise to many common complaints. For patients with some healthy teeth, we can also discuss options for attachments to connect the partial denture to the existing teeth.
When a denture is not seated in the mouth properly, it tends to slip around. Patients with loose dentures often have painful sores. They are not able to efficiently or comfortably chew food. They may be embarrassed to speak or laugh for fear of their denture becoming dislodged.
You never have to worry about these concerns when trusting our team with the planning and design of your dentures. We ensure that they are fitted properly and use a wide range of information about your mouth to aid in fabricating well-fitting dentures. Additionally, adjustments are made throughout the process to make sure that the denture fits well and that the process of transitioning to eating and speaking with dentures is a smooth one.
We are also happy to explore the option of implant-supported dentures. These dentures do not rely on fit, suction, and attachments to existing teeth alone for their support. Rather, they are stabilized in the jaw by dental implants. So, these teeth are designed like natural teeth, with implants standing in as tooth roots to hold the denture in place!
Regardless of the option that you select, it is essential to maintain regular visits to our office. We’ll check that the denture is holding up well and does not need to be repaired or adjusted. Over time, removable dentures will need to be relined, rebased, or replaced to ensure a proper fit.
Even those patients with implant-supported dentures should not shirk routine appointments. Implants can develop a gum disease-like inflammation, which threatens their health. It is critical to keep the area around the implants clean and free of any lingering food debris, plaque, and bacteria that could promote disease and threaten the supportive implants.
