If your teeth have been severely damaged by erosion, gum disease or knocked out during an accident, the dentures may be the best treatment option. At Dental Ben’s, we offer full dentures to replace the entire rows of your teeth and partial dentures to replace one or two of your missing teeth. If Dr. Ben tells you that you need dentures, here’s what you should expect.
Before dentures process kicks off, Dental Ben’s team will prepare your mouth by extracting some teeth. Immediately after removal of the teeth, immediate dentures will be inserted over your mouth to help you maintain your straight healthy-looking smile until the gums heal.
Dr. Ben will take an impression of your gums and craft a wax model. Once he is finished building the wax model, you’ll be asked to choose the color, shape, and size of your teeth, and then the model will be sent off to our laboratory.
Our lab technicians will build a mock-up of your denture so that you can confirm whether they fit you well and have the right color. And if you aren’t pleased with the try-in dentures, adjustments are made immediately, and the results will be sent back to the lab for the final dentures.
Ultimately, your new restoration is fitted. You may feel awkward within the first week because your mouth, tongue and facial muscles need time to get used to the new dentures wearers. To alleviate this discomfort, Dr. Benjamin Cooperman will provide you with the best dentures adhesives and cleansers, which will help you feel more comfortable and confident with your new dentures.
Now that you are happy with the way dentures have restored your smile, it’s vital to maintain them, and prevent bacteria’s from getting in your acrylic. Here are helpful tips to follow:
