Are you missing all of your teeth? Ebrahimian Integrative Dentistry can replace them with dentures that will improve your appearance by restoring your smile and benefit your overall health as well as your self-confidence.

We offer two types of dentures:

Custom dentures

Custom dentures are made with high-quality, natural-looking materials. Unlike cheaper versions of dentures, these are crafted to meet your specific lifestyle and dental needs and are much more comfortable than traditional or economy dentures. Plus, custom dentures perform at a higher level than their cheaper counterparts.

We begin the procedure by taking impressions of your teeth and bite, which will be used to create a model of your mouth and aid in the making of your dentures. Our trusted dental lab handcrafts each set of custom dentures that will improve your ability to chew and allow you to smile with confidence.

Once the dentures are completed and fitted, we will make any necessary adjustments to guarantee an optimum fit and comfort.

Implant dentures

Implant dentures are an ideal tooth replacement option for patients missing all of their teeth, especially if you do not want traditional dentures or are unhappy with the ones that you have.

Made from titanium, dental implants are posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone, replacing the root of the missing tooth or teeth. Specially made dentures are crafted to attach to the implants, providing a secure, yet comfortable fit. Unlike a traditional dental implant, which is used to replace a single missing tooth, implant dentures rely on a series of implants that are placed at strategic locations in the mouth —usually in areas where the bone is denser, which reduces healing time and provides stability for a denture to snap into place. Implant dentures will not slip or shift, which often makes for a more natural feel and greater comfort. Plus, no more need for denture adhesives!

What can you expect from our dentures?

Our dentists Drs. Max and Ariana Ebrahimian also have training and expertise in neuromuscular dentistry. That means that we construct all our dentures following neuromuscular dimensions; your denture will maintain, or in many cases improve, the alignment of your bite. We also take into account the height and width of your smile, your facial shape, as well as the color, texture, and position of any remaining healthy teeth to ensure you receive the most comfortable and natural-looking results.

This method of construction is more meticulous, but has several benefits:

  • Your dentures will have an ideal fit in your mouth, with less chance of slipping or shifting.
  • Less stress will be exerted on the musculature of your face and mouth.
  • More support for your facial structure, preventing the “sunken-in” appearance that often occurs with patients who live with long-term tooth loss. In fact, many patients who receive either our custom dentures or implant dentures say they look younger after adjusting to their new dentures.

Living with lost teeth hinders your nutrition, affects your self-esteem, and has a negative impact on your overall quality of life. You don’t have to continue to live this way.
