What to Expect
A denture procedure begins with our team of dental professionals at getting the patient's mouth to be ready, which usually does include X-rays, an exam and cleaning, and any dental work, such as fillings. As soon as the mouth is prepared, digital X-rays and professional impressions will be taken and taken to our dental lab so that the custom dentures can be manufactured. As the real dentures are being made, our dentists will offer the patient interim dentures to use. As soon as the new dentures have been created our dentists will place them and secure them for a long-term fit.
Professionally customized dentures require special care instructions to keep them in healthy condition. Our dental practitioners at will provide these instructions when the patient gets their dentures. With proper care and maintenance, removable dentures can last for a very long time.
