About Removable Dentures
There are several reasons that may cause a patient to lose teeth, such as oral disease, decay, and trauma. At our San Marcos, CA practice, we make both partial and complete custom-made dentures at our in-house laboratory to allow patients a restored, comfortable, and natural-looking smile. Partial dentures are used to replace several missing teeth, while complete dentures replace all teeth on the upper and/or lower arches. Unlike implant dentures, removable dentures can be taken out when needed while still allowing the patient to eat and speak properly. Dr. Jeffrey Allred at Allred Dental works with patients to achieve their desired smile and he creates custom dentures using high-quality materials.
"I had such a wonderful experience at Allred dental. Dr. Allred and his staff are super friendly and attentive they made me feel totally relaxed which is pretty rare for being at a dentist office. I was actually a little nervous going in for my procedure because I was scared it was going to be painful. In the contrary I felt no pain and they were finished before I knew it. It was great!! I would highly recommend Allred dental to anyone needing dental services."- C.C. / Google / Aug 21, 2017

What to Expect
The procedure for dentures starts with Dr. Allred preparing the patient's mouth, which may include extractions, cleanings, or filing the natural teeth. Then digital x-rays and physical impressions will be taken and sent to our in-house dental laboratory where custom dentures will be created. While they are being made, Dr. Allred will give you temporary dentures to wear. When the permanent dentures are completed, Dr. Allred will adjust as needed to give you your most comfortable and secure fit. You may schedule a follow-up appointment after your dentures are first fitted so Dr. Allred can check the fit of the dentures.
Care instructions for dentures will be provided by Dr. Allred to help you keep your dentures clean and in good condition. Removable dentures can last 2 – 10 years with proper care, including regular dental exams as often as recommended to check the wear of your dentures and the health of your gums and mouth.
Complete and partial dentures are usually covered at least in part by dental insurance. Our office will contact your insurance company to calculate what your insurance will pay and your personal cost. Please talk to our team about what payments are accepted by our office and what financing plans are available.
