About custom dentures
Dentures are a great choice if you need a replacement for multiple missing teeth. Dentures can restore the appearance of your smile and make it easier to eat and speak with full confidence. Orange, CA dentist Dr. Patrick Yoshikane can create either partial or full removable dentures for area patients. Full dentures replace all the teeth in your lower arch, upper arch, or both compared to partial dentures that leave some of your natural teeth to act as support. At Patrick Yoshikane, D.D.S., we can help you determine whether partial or full dentures are best for your goals and then have your dentures made custom to look natural. Make an appointment with Dr. Yoshikane to get more information about dentures.
"Dr. Yoshikane and his staff are awesome. They have been my wife and her families dentist forever and have been my dentist for the last two years. They helped me out recently at the last minute with my wisdom teeth. I had been putting it off for 20 plus years because they never hurt and out of the blue the one on my upper left jaw became inflamed and began causing me pretty bad pain. I gave them a call and they got me in to check it out and after seeing the inflammation the set me up to get them out. Dr. Yoshikane asked me if I wanted sedation or local and I said local. I am not a big fan of sedation and dental work doesn't weird me out. The procedure went great and Dr. Yoshikane and his assistant checked on my pain level throughout the whole procedure to make sure I was not in pain. It was a great experience and I would recommend him to anyone local looking for a great dental office who does everything they can to help their patients as quickly as they can."- G.S. / Yelp / Nov 09, 2018
"Dr. Yoshikane and his team are friendly, informative and ease the anxiety that dental visits bring. Over the years I've heard many horror stories about wisdom teeth removal so when my turn came to finally part with mine, I was very apprehensive. Dr. Y took the time to thoroughly explain all the pros and cons, laid out a detailed plan then he and his team made sure my comfort and care during the procedure were top notch. Visits to the dentist no longer trigger anxiety attacks thanks to Dr Yoshikane's office."- L.M. / Yelp / Jul 24, 2019

You could be an ideal candidate for dentures if you have suffered the loss of many teeth but still have healthy gums and a strong jawbone. If you have natural teeth, they may either be removed if you want a full denture or you can keep them as support for a partial. During your consultation with Dr. Yoshikane, he will assess your mouth and discuss your choices to fit your needs and budget.
What To Expect
In some cases, Dr. Yoshikane will perform the removal on any teeth before impressions are taken, which will help make your custom dentures. Partial dentures will be shaded to blend with your remaining teeth for an attractive appearance. As soon as your dentures are crafted, Dr. Yoshikane will adjust the fit so they are comfortable and secure. He will also go over the best way to clean and care for your new dentures.
It may take time before your dentures feel comfortable and natural; however, it should become easier to speak and eat normally. If the dentures feel loose, schedule a follow-up at our practice to get your dentures readjusted. You will need to clean your dentures with a toothbrush two times a day. When you take out your dentures, they need to be soaked so they don't dry out. You should continue to attend exams and cleanings at Patrick Yoshikane, D.D.S. so Dr. Yoshikane can check the fit and wear of your dentures and the overall health of your mouth. He will discuss when you need to have your dentures replaced or repaired; however, with proper treatment, your custom dentures can last for many years.
