It is unfortunate that so many people maintain a poor opinion of dentures. As one of the most reliable forms of restorative dentistry, they offer an extensive list of benefits. Dr. Wali Hamidy at La Jolla Dental Image in La Jolla, CA encourages all our patients to explore every option when they are facing the loss of teeth or have already suffered the loss of one or more teeth. As a dentures specialist, Dr. Hamidy can provide full or partial dentures and offer an array of effective solutions.

Understanding Dentures

Dentures were once referred to generally as false teeth and were not viewed as an ideal answer. However, as your dentist in La Jolla, we can tell you that they are currently an advanced option. Your dentures can replace one or two teeth or an entire arch. They can be removable or fixed, using dental implants, and no matter what format, they can allow you to look, speak and eat like you have always done.

As we said, they are one of the most reliable and original forms of restorative dentistry. They replace teeth lost to age, injury or decay and allow you to use them for more than just cosmetic purposes. Carefully designed for your mouth, they are always going to retain your natural bite. Your dentures will be made to give you complete comfort and will look so convincing that no one will know you are wearing them.

The Process of Getting Dentures

There are many routes by which a patient may come to our office for dentures. Obtaining them is very straightforward. We make very detailed molds and measurements of your mouth and use a specialized lab to carefully craft your dentures. We do a fitting in the office before sending you home with them, as this ensures your bite is healthy and the fit is comfortable. We also go over all dentures aftercare steps so you know what to expect in the first days, weeks and beyond.

After that, we ask you to do regular exams and cleanings with us to ensure your gums and any remaining teeth are in top shape. Dentures offer you a way to quickly and easily regain the fullest use of your teeth and gums.
