Preparing for Full or Partial Dentures
There are two basic processes to prepare and adjust to dentures, customized to each patient. In the conventional method, we remove your remaining teeth and an x-ray scan is made of your mouth. This allows your dentures to be prepared while your mouth heals. Once your dentures are ready, they can be easily installed, allowing you to adjust to them immediately.
The immediate method takes advantage of new techniques, enabling you to avoid spending time without teeth. After a full scan of your mouth, your partial or full dentures will be created. Once they are ready, your remaining teeth will be removed and the dentures will be fitted immediately. You won't have to spend any time without teeth, but we will have to adjust the dentures a few times as your mouth heals.
