What Is the Process for Getting Dentures?
The process of getting dentures requires several appointments, usually over several weeks to fully allow the healing process. Highly accurate impressions (molds) and measurements are taken and used to create your custom denture. Several “try-in” appointments may be necessary to ensure proper shape, color, and fit. At the final appointment, your dentist will precisely adjust and place the completed denture, ensuring a natural and comfortable fit.
It is normal to experience increased saliva flow, some soreness, and possible speech and chewing challenges after the procedure. This will subside as your mouth and muscles get used to the new dentures.
You will be given care instructions for your new set of dentures. Proper cleaning of your new dental appliance, good oral hygiene, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your dentures.
Life and daily activities can become difficult if you start losing your teeth. From difficulty while eating, speaking and smiling, loss of teeth can also result in loss of confidence. Missing teeth, has a negative impact not only on other teeth but your overall face and mouth structure, including the cheeks and lips. Dentures can help restore your mouth to full functionality and improve your quality of life.
