When most or all of a patient’s teeth are missing, one cannot effectively chew food. It also affects speech and smiling. At our Los Angeles, CA dental practice, Dr. Suzanne Haeri, DDS offers attractive dentures for patients looking to replace most or all of their teeth.
When many teeth are missing, they affect the life of a patient. Certain foods are no longer able to be eaten, speech will be affected, and even the confidence to smile and laugh may be affected. Dentures are a new set of teeth that can replace a full set of teeth or just some, depending on the patient’s needs.
Partial dentures are able to be utilized when there are a few teeth left that can serve as a base for the dentures. Full dentures are placed after any remaining teeth are pulled. We are able to place the dentures immediately or we can wait until the gums heal to place the dentures. Waiting until they heal is a conventional placement and allows for a better fit. Immediate dentures will likely have to be refit in the future, but there is no time spent without teeth.
Dentures help patients regain their ability to chew, talk, and smile. If you are ready for dentures, schedule a consultation with Dr. Suzanne Haeri, DDS in our Los Angeles, CA office. Appointments can be scheduled by calling us at (310) 657-2200 or by visiting our website, www.suzannehaeridds.com.
