Board-certified dentists Drs. Alan and Yonatan Howard can create either partial or full removable dentures for residents in Encino, CA. Full dentures replace your whole lower arch, upper arch, or both compared to partial dentures that leave some of your remaining teeth to act as support. At The Dental Office Encino, we can help you determine whether partial or full dentures match your goals, and then have your dentures made custom to look beautiful and natural.

Best Candidates for Dentures
You could be a candidate for custom dentures if you have lost most or all of your teeth, but your jawbone and gums are strong and healthy. If you have natural teeth, they can either be removed if you want a full denture or you can keep them as support for a partial. In your appointment with Dr. Alan or Yonatan Howard, so he can assess your condition and give you your choices to fit your needs and goals.
What To Expect
In some cases, Dr. Howard will perform an extraction on any natural teeth before impressions are taken, which will help us design your custom dentures. Partial dentures will be tinted to blend with your remaining teeth for an attractive result. As soon as your full or partial dentures are finished, Dr. Howard will adjust them to be comfortable. He will discuss methods to clean and care for your custom dentures.
It will probably take time before your dentures feel comfortable; however, it should become easier to speak and eat normally. If the dentures feel loose, come back to The Dental Office Encino to get your dentures adjusted. You will need to clean your dentures with a toothbrush two times a day. Whenever you take out your dentures, they need to be soaked to avoid drying them out. You should continue to attend annual exams and bi-annual cleanings at The Dental Office Encino, so Dr. Howard can watch the fit and wear of your custom dentures and the overall health of your mouth. He will discuss when your dentures should be replaced or repaired; however, with good treatment, your custom dentures can last for a long time.
If you are using insurance, some of the expenses of your custom dentures may be covered. A member of our team will talk to your dental insurance company to figure out your coverage and personal responsibilities. In your first appointment with Dr. Howard, he will personalize your treatment so your dentures match your budget and needs. To assist with making your treatment more affordable with or without dental insurance, The Dental Office Encino takes several payment methods, including low-interest medical financing.
