Custom dentures can be a great choice if you want to replace several missing teeth. Dentures can restore your smile and help you eat and speak with more confidence. Dr. Kareem Abraham can create either partial or full removable dentures for residents in Santa Ana, CA. Full dentures replace your entire lower arch, upper arch, or both compared to partial dentures that use your remaining teeth as support. At LifeTime Smiles of OC, we can help you determine whether partial or full dentures fit your goals and then have your dentures made custom to look beautiful. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Abraham to get more information about removable dentures.

You could be a good candidate for removable dentures if you are missing most or all of your teeth, but your gums and jawbone are still 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 initial consultation with Dr. Abraham, he will assess your oral health and explain your choices to fit your budget and needs.
What To Expect
In some cases, Dr. Abraham will perform an extraction on any remaining teeth before impressions are taken, which will help customize your dentures. Prior to receiving your dentures, you will receive a model, plastic pattern, or wax form as a type of try-on dentures to ensure that your permanent restoration will fit comfortably. While your final dentures are being created, you will be given provisional denture prosthetics to wear. As soon as your custom dentures are made, Dr. Abraham will fit them so they are secure and comfortable. Partial dentures will be colored to blend with your remaining teeth for an attractive finish. After you have received your custom dentures, Dr. Abraham will talk about how to clean and care for them.
It may require time before your dentures feel natural; however, it should become easier to speak and eat normally. If the dentures feel loose, come back to LifeTime Smiles of OC to get them refitted. You will need to clean your dentures with a toothbrush twice daily. At night or whenever you take out your dentures, they need to be soaked to prevent them from drying out. You should continue to receive dental cleanings and exams at LifeTime Smiles of OC so Dr. Abraham can examine the fit and wear of your restoration and the overall health of your mouth. He will discuss when your dentures need to be replaced or repaired; however, with ideal treatment, your custom dentures can last for several years.
If you are using insurance, some of the expenses of your custom dentures will usually be paid for. We will talk to your dental insurance to understand your benefits and personal costs. At your initial consultation with Dr. Abraham, he will develop your treatment so your dentures match your budget and needs. For help making your dentures affordable with or without dental insurance, LifeTime Smiles of OC takes several payment methods, including low-interest medical financing.
