During a consultation, your doctor will examine your mouth, discuss your options with you, and answer any questions you may have so you can proceed with confidence, when you’re ready.

The Denture Treatment Process

Impressions or Scans

Once your eligibility for treatment is confirmed, your dentist will collaborate with you to develop a personalized treatment plan. Following this, our team will capture either scans or impressions of your mouth. These images are then forwarded to a dental laboratory, where the creation of your custom prosthetic begins. In the interim, temporary dentures might be provided to safeguard your gums as you await the completion of your permanent set.

Tooth Extraction (If Needed)

In certain scenarios, tooth extractions might be necessary to accommodate your new dentures. To initiate this process, your dentist will administer local anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Post-extraction, it's crucial to rest extensively for at least 24 hours. You will receive comprehensive care instructions from your dentist to ensure a comfortable and pain-free recovery period.

Fitting and Adjustments

Upon the completion of your dentures, you'll revisit the office for the fitting phase. This step involves meticulous adjustments to maximize the comfort and functionality of your dentures. Regular office visits for annual check-ups are recommended to maintain the quality of your dentures. With proper care, a set of dentures can serve you well for up to a decade.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a good candidate for dentures?

To see if you’re a candidate for dentures, we recommend a personal consultation with your dentist. During this visit, they will assess your oral health, including the condition of your jaw and gums, to determine if dentures are a suitable option for you. Additionally, they can offer advice on alternative restorative treatments that might better align with your dental aspirations.

How are dentures made?

Dentures are crafted from a robust combination of metal and acrylic, constructed at a reputable partner laboratory. The process begins with your dentist taking impressions of your teeth and gums. These are then sent to the lab, where a precise acrylic model of your teeth is made based on detailed impressions. Once your dentures are completed and delivered to us, we will check the fit and make any necessary adjustments for a perfect fit.

How long do dentures last?

Dentures typically have a lifespan of seven to ten years. Given that your mouth undergoes continual changes, periodic adjustments are essential to maintain a proper fit. We advise yearly check-ups to keep your dentures in prime condition, thereby prolonging their life and helping you save money while enjoying your smile.

Are dentures comfortable?

Everyone's experience adapting to dentures varies. It's common for some patients to experience initial discomfort with their new set. Our team will ensure your dentures are precisely fitted to your gums to minimize any potential issues like slipping or irritation. Proper home care of your dentures is also crucial to avoid damage and enhance comfort.

How do dentures look?

Leveraging modern technology and high-definition imaging, your dentist will craft a set of custom dentures that closely mimic your natural teeth. These dentures are tailored to align seamlessly with your jaw and gum line, ensuring a natural look.

Will my insurance cover dentures?

Dentures are a widely sought-after and reasonably priced restorative option. Consequently, many dental insurance plans typically cover a portion of denture costs. Coverage specifics, however, vary based on your individual insurance plan. For a clearer understanding of your dental insurance benefits, we recommend reaching out to your provider or speaking with a member of our team.
