Dentures in San Diego
Natural-looking, comfortable, durable dentures
Due to advancements in dental technology, dental implants can now be used to secure dentures in place and make them look, act and feel like real teeth. Traditional dentures remain popular, however, and can be an affordable option for many patients.
Our doctors create durable and well-fitting dentures. They also try to make them as aesthetically pleasing as possible. They will have you bring in pictures when you had all your teeth and will use those as a guide to match your natural look as best as possible.
We have many options for replacing teeth, including full and partial dentures, as well as implant-supported dentures. The doctors will thoroughly explain all of your options and help you choose the best one for you.
Valplast® flexible acrylic dentures
We offer Valplast full and partial flexible acrylic dentures, which are very comfortable, durable and lifelike. The resin (the pink nylon material) is guaranteed never to break under normal wear and tear for the lifetime of the denture.
Typical partial dentures are made with visible metal clasps, but the Valplast flexible partial is metal-free. The result is a comfortable fit and lifelike appearance.
For added stability and comfort, our doctors recommend stabilizing your dentures with dental implants. An implant is a titanium post inserted into the jawbone to function as a tooth root. The more implants used, the more stable, functional and lifelike the denture will be.
Dr. Justene Doan and Dr. Tran are highly trained implant dentists and have placed hundreds of implants during their career. Utilizing advanced dental imaging technology, they will place your implants in a minimally invasive, efficient procedure.
How Denture Stabilization works
The doctor will fit your new dentures with special attachments that snap securely onto dental implants. In some cases they can even retrofit your existing denture to work with dental implants. When the procedure is done, you will be able to snap your dentures on in the morning and remove them at night for cleaning.
Types of dentures we offer
Full dentures require all the teeth to be removed. The dentures fit over the gums and are held in place with an adhesive. We offer acrylic and flexible acrylic options.
Traditional partial dentures are secured by metal clasps, which fit around existing teeth.
No-Metal Flexible Partial Dentures
We offer metal-free Valplast® flexible acrylic partials. With this option, you don’t have to worry about people noticing your partial denture.
These are aesthetic, functional temporary dentures, which are placed immediately after teeth are extracted. They are worn until your permanent dentures are ready to be placed.
Implant-supported dentures are stable in your mouth and provide great chewing power. Depending on your preferences, they can either be permanently fixed in your mouth or removable.
In some cases, our doctors can retrofit your existing dentures with attachments so they can snap onto dental implants.
Relines and Repairs
We reline dentures to make them fit more comfortably, and we also do repairs.
Thinking about getting Dental Implants?
“I had just moved from New York and had a horrible set of teeth (dentures) made, which didn’t allow me to eat food properly. When I met the doctors they sat me down and explained what they could do. They took time to listen to my concerns and needs.
“Everyone was very friendly at every one of my visits. They always make you feel welcome. They addressed all my concerns. They did not rush the procedures and made sure I was completely satisfied after all steps were completed.
“The doctors at the practice work together as a team. They are friendly and personable and make you feel completely relaxed and comfortable. I would send my friends and family here.
“I can eat food again, and everyone compliments me on my smile. Most important, my husband married me because he just loves my smile.”
