Do you make or repair dentures?
Yes, we make and repair dentures. Dr. Dovidio and Dr. Yaftaly are experienced in creating dentures from the years each served as residents at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in North Hills, CA and Los Angeles, CA respectively. While many patients see us for dental implants, many others have expressed a desire for dentures or a need to repair their existing sets.
If you would like to have a set of dentures made, a consultation with Dr. Dovidio/Dr. Yaftaly will help to guide you in your decision. Dentures can be made to match both your facial structure and desired tooth color and are a feasible replacement for lost teeth.
Being made of resin and plastic, dentures can be damaged from wear and tear. If your dentures have stains that resist removal with brush and denture cleaners, you may bring them to our office, where our hygienists can use an ultrasonic cleaner to remove stains and polish the dentures. Likewise, any cracking or breakage that occurs in your dentures should be repaired professionally, as Dr. Dovidio/Dr. Yaftaly will need to ensure that they fit precisely to avoid problems with chewing and causing sore spots in your mouth. For your benefit, your dentures should be replaced every five to seven years.
