Patients near Encino and Los Angeles, CA ask, “What are some recommended options for dentures?”

Recommended Dentures Near Encino

Tooth loss can be devastating. Beyond the impact on the smile, it can affect oral health and self-esteem. The good news is adult tooth loss does not have to be permanent. While dentures have been around for over 100 years, they aren’t a perfect solution. Traditional dentures sit on top of the gums, which can make a secure fit challenging. Dentures that are uncomfortable, move around, or fall out are some of the biggest complaints from patients.

Dr. O’Malley recommends implant-supported dentures to address tooth loss. Dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth because they are inserted into the jawbone.

The dental implant process

During a thorough evaluation, Dr. O’Malley will determine if you are a candidate for dental implants. Patients must be in good oral health and have sufficient bone structure for successful placement. Patients with bone loss may still be eligible for implants after receiving a bone graft.

Phase one

The first phase of dental implants involves placing the post into the jawbone. These posts will serve as the anchor for a dental crown, bridge, or denture, depending on how many teeth are missing. After the implant is in place, the mouth is left to heal. Over the course of several months to bone will fuse with the implant.

Phase two

Once the bone has healed around the implant, patients return to have the abutment attached. This piece serves as an extender and connects the implant and the restoration.

Phase three  

Once the gum tissue has healed after placement of the abutment, the final restoration can be placed. For patients who are missing an entire arch of teeth, a full of denture made to look beautiful and natural can be snapped into place.

To learn more about implant-supported dentures, call dentist Dr. Paul O’Malley at 818-616-8838.

How it Works

1. Educate Yourself
I am not your average dentist. It's important you understand what I do so that you can make an educated decision on treatment after your exam. My free course is the best way to do that. You can sign up for free below or at the top of this page (for a callback). We require all new patients to go through the free course. If you would like a list of the free course videos so that you can move through them faster, simply call, email or text in and Brandon can send that to you.
2. Submit a Form or Call In
Submitting a form is best way to contact us and also allows you to receive my free course. We generally are booking 1-4 weeks out for new patients, then it may take another 2-4 weeks to begin treatment. We can help you get out of pain and handle emergencies by using our network of referral doctors. We don't want to rush into treatment until the game plan is 100% worked out and the diagnosis is complete. Planning is key and you need to understand what is happening with your body.
3. See if We Are the Right Fit
As you are rolling through the free course, Brandon, my office manager, is always available to answer questions via email or calling in. Our cost is around $900 per tooth for smaller restorations or $2,600 per tooth for larger restorations. We can help you file with your insurance but we do not file on your behalf. We do not do 1-tooth-dentistry but can give you a recommendation to other dentists who do. Call us, we will help! Whatever you need, we will try to give you the solution!
Dental X-Rays for a Free Evaluation
4. Send in your X-Rays for a Free Evaluation
Due to a large volume of calls and emails, we want to make sure we can help as many people as possible. To do that we have decided to allow patients to send in their X-Rays by email and have Dr. O'Malley evaluate them at NO CHARGE. This will also include ballpark financial information to do the necessary work. If you don't have X-Rays from the past year, we can bring you in to have them done in our office. When you send in your X-Rays please also include your main concerns in the body of the email. All X-Ray evals are given to people live on the phone with my office manager. X-Ray evals could take up to one week to complete.
5. Come in For a 90 Minute
Exam
My initial exam and x-rays is $295. We will get to know each other and also do a full 90 minute clinical exam. This step is NEVER rushed. You will have NO mysteries about your mouth and complex cases are VERY welcome. It's time to end your dental disaster once and for all. Compatibility between us is key before getting involved with treatment! I will print you a full treatment plan with pricing and sequencing. Average treatment plans range from $10,000-$65,000.
6. Go Over Financing and
Begin
Your treatment plan is broken down and options are given to HANDLE YOUR ENTIRE MOUTH. I don't do "duct-tape dentistry" and I want a product of a healthy and functional mouth FOR LIFE, so please be ready to confront your entire mouth or large sections. Any major work needs to be pre-paid prior to scheduling. We often book 4-10 hour appts to get you rolling FAST towards enjoying your new mouth. I also would like to get you started on my oral probiotics so we can prevent future decay from forming. I only want to see you for cleanings once we complete your work!

For Out-of-Town Patients:

I LOVE to help patients that are coming in from out-of-town. We can have it so that we can do the most amount of work in the fastest period of time while also reducing the amount of appointments you need. On the first appt we can do the full exam, xrays and impressions all within around 2 hours. Then we can prep everything and coordinate with any surgical aspects and lab work. Then, about 2-3 weeks later, we can bring you in for a very large appt to get everything rolling. We can even do 2 very large days back-to-back - like a Saturday and a Monday or a Friday and a Monday. Ideally, you can stay in town for a couple of days to verify we're all stable, then you can leave if you want. Then we would bring you back one more time for a weekend like that and we will generally be able to do most of your case in that time frame. If you're mainly veneers, it's a much easier case. But if you have a very complex case and quite a bit of complex decay, it can change the above but the basic layout is 1-2 large appts over a weekend every 2-4 weeks. But it all really comes down to what you want and how aggressively you want to complete work. In this way we can get a fully biomimetic restoration - giving you long-lasting functionality, aesthetics and comfort - while also compressing time to be as efficient as possible for you. I know you're busy and your time is VERY valuable and I will always work diligently to give you the best available dentistry while at the same time protecting your schedule and your personal life. All my dentistry is one-on-one so when you come in for your appointment, it's all about you. We're a team together in this project and I'm not running from room-to-room, you get my FULL attention to get a PERFECT product.
