If you have recently lost your ability to chew or speak properly because of missing or pulled teeth, then dentures could be an effective and affordable solution to restore your smile today. Applied to different conditions than Partial Dentures, fulldentures are a custom-made set of fake teeth designed to fill the holes left in your smile by lost permanent teeth. This set of teeth is generally worn during the day and taken off at night. Visit our types of dentures page to learn more about the different kinds of dentures offered at Carson & Carson, DDS.
More Natural Looking and Comfortable Than Ever Before
Advancements in dental technology have made dentures more comfortable and natural looking than they have ever been in the past. Modern denture wearers have more options in food choices & have far less compatibility issues as the entire process is mapped out in 3D before any treatment begins.
Alternative to using dentures, Dental Bridges or Dental Implants can be inserted into the mouth to restore function in a similar, but more permanent way.
The process of creating dentures to fit your exact dental circumstances starts between 8 to 12 weeks after the teeth are lost or extracted from your mouth. A mold of the mouth tissues is taken and models are created based on this mold. The dentures are constructed piece by piece on this model and then tested with the patient’s mouth to ensure that they will work properly when used. This step of the process takes about 4-5 weeks on average with a visit to the dentist once a week. It is important to revisit your dentist and have the dentures adjusted if they are causing any discomfort or irritation along the oral tissues.

Over time, your mouth will change shape causing dentures to loosen or become irritating to the gums. When seen often enough (annually or earlier) a dentist can reline, remake, or rebase your dentures to adjust for normal wear and return their shape to being perfectly comfortable. Just like normal teeth, dentures should be brushed daily to avoid the buildup of unwanted plaque or odors.
Adhesives for dentures are typically not necessary, but there are situations where they improve the stability, retention, bite force, and sense of security for the user of the dentures.
Individuals who have a chronic dry mouth, elderly folks susceptible to stroke, or who are currently taking cold remedies are prime candidates for the use of adhesive with their dentures.
Denture adhesives should not be used when: the adhesive is not going to fix the underlying problem like a badly fitting set of dentures, when your mouth cannot be regularly cleaned, or when adhesives have been used for a prolonged time period.

I have had a lot of procedures including 8 implants. There is no better dentist office than Carson and Carson. Dr. Derek Carson (the son of Dr. Leroy Carson) is FANTASTIC! He has learned well from his father (who still works there). Papa is the MAN!, and has been for years. Insane amount of knowledge. The Doctors are THE BEST! The support staff is fun and professional always. I will never go anywhere else.
A dentist that truly understands how much the whole dental trip petrifies me - and helps me overcome it. For the first time, and certainly not the last, he used nitros oxide and I can honestly say I can look at future visits without abject terror. No more waiting until the tooth needs pulled! I may even get my teeth cleaned.
The BEST dental office in Ventura County!! Super friendly staff, easy to schedule appts, no issues with insurance processing, and Dr. Carson makes sure you are always comfortable and pain-free when getting any work done. I've been a patient for over 7 years now and I couldn't be happier! I highly recommend!
This dental office is beyond professional. A landmark of our city, to say the least. Dr. Carson has been serving our community for quite some time, with true care and concern for his patients. If you want a true dental experience, then I would highly advise you to make an appointment with them 🙂
Dr. Derek, you have a hand and a heart of gold. That spirit of help that you have is praiseworthy. I'm amazed at all the treatment you've done and I feel no pain after, not even the pain of the anesthesia sting, I say with propriety because I am very sensitive to pain. Congratulations on your work that loves what you do so you have been successful, not counting on your last generation machine that I do not know how to explain. Much gratitude, you're the best.
