At All Smiles Dental, our gentle, knowledgeable team is dedicated to your oral health. We are proud to help our patients overcome tooth loss and restore their smiles with our comfortable, natural-looking dentures. Depending on your needs, our team may recommend full dentures, partial dentures, implant-supported dentures, and more.
How Do Dentures Work?
Dentures are custom-made artificial teeth. They may be removable, but some kinds are supported by dental implants. We use them to replace the look and function of your teeth in cases of full or partial tooth loss.
There are two types of full dentures. Conventional full dentures are when all of the teeth are removed, and the tissue is given time to heal. Once healed, the full set of dentures is placed. The time it takes for the tissue to heal could take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months.
Immediate full dentures are placed in the same dental visit. Prior to pulling the remaining teeth, our team will take measurements of the patient’s mouth. When the patient returns for the procedure and directly after the patient’s remaining teeth are removed, the dentures are placed. The patient’s jawbone and mouth may shift in the healing process, so our dentist would recommend a follow-up visit to check the placement of the dentures. Over time, the dentures will need to be adjusted as the patient’s mouth heals to ensure a more secure and comfortable fit.
We want your visits to be efficient and gentle. All Smiles Dental is dedicated to being your dentist in Long Beach.

Dentures will take time to get used to. The flesh-colored base of the dentures is placed over the tops of your gums. Some patients feel that they get in the way or are a bit bulky. The dentures may feel loose at times. Because of this, they may affect the way you talk or eat. Over time, you’ll feel comfortable and confident with them.
Dentures are a great replacement for missing teeth. They can be removed and put back in at any time. Here at All Smiles Dental, we offer affordable dentures while using the very best material on the market. The reason we may recommend dentures is that, in some situations, a patient may not have enough healthy teeth left for other procedures. In such cases, the remaining teeth are removed, and a full set of dentures is provided.
