What to Expect
The process for creating dentures involves several steps to ensure proper fit and function. You can trust that we will make this process as efficient as possible.
Before we start crafting your dentures, we’ll do a full examination of your mouth to determine if you’ll need full or partial dentures. In some cases, this may include tooth extractions if necessary.
The first step to creating dentures is taking dental impressions that include your gums and any remaining teeth. Then we create a dental model of your mouth and use that to create your custom dentures.
After your dentures are created, we’ll have you into the office for a fitting and any necessary adjustments. It may take a few office visits to ensure your dentures have the best fit.
