Dentures have come a long way since your grandparents’ blocky, chalky “false teeth.” Today’s modern dentures are attractive, realistic, and fit more comfortably and securely than ever before.
Dr. Rahimi is skilled at designing and placing dentures that will return your ability to eat and smile with comfort and confidence.
The Modern Denture Difference
Unlike older dentures that had an unnatural appearance and feel, today’s dentures are made using teeth with exact specifications, which are then set into a base that has been color-matched to your own gums.
The teeth are shaded to appear lifelike, even including the small imperfections that you would see in anyone’s teeth. Additionally, the fit has been improved considerably to reduce your risk of an embarrassing slip or painful sores.
Dr. Rahimi can also place implants that are retained with dentures, an advanced option for replacing missing teeth. When you choose to secure your dentures with implants, Dr. Rahimi places an implant made of titanium that integrates permanently with your mandible. Your implants will be restored with clips that allow your dentures to securely fit into place. With implant-supported dentures, you no longer have to worry about dentures slipping and sliding.

When you call our office, we will schedule a consultation to discuss whether dentures are the right choice for you. We will review your goals and your lifestyle and help you make the best decision based on your individual needs.
Even after you go home with your dentures, it is important to continue to see Dr. Rahimi for routine examinations. The shape of your gums will change over time, and regular check-ups are vital to keep your dentures fitting properly and looking their best. If you ever drop your dentures, let us know right away because any damage that might not be immediately apparent can still lead to bacterial growth or an improper fit. When dentures do not fit properly, you are at risk for painful sores and infections, and we want to avoid this.
