Are You Wondering About the Process of Getting Dentures?
Find Out Every Step, From Beginning to End!
Let me walk you through the process of getting dentures so that you can understand every step, from scheduling the appointment, to taking your new smile home. I want you to feel completely informed and comfortable with the process. Knowing what to expect makes everything easier.
First, you’ll call in and schedule a consultation. We will do a thorough examination of your teeth and discuss your specific needs. We will want to determine whether dentures are right for you, and if so, what kind. There are different types of dentures:
- Partial dentures: for those with only some missing teeth. Partial dentures are designed to fit in between the remaining teeth. We will create these specifically for your mouth and integrate them so that they match your other teeth.
- Complete dentures: for those with all missing teeth. These dentures can be customized so you will get just the smile you have wanted. Something natural? A movie star smile? You have options.
What Happens Next?
After we determine what the right type of denture is for you, we will take several impressions of your mouth. We will create models of your jaw and teeth with wax so we will know the exact positioning of your dentures.
You’ll try on the models to be certain that the fit is comfortable.
Once we know that the fit perfect, we will have the dentures made. I will fit the new dentures in your mouth and again ensure that the fit is perfect. We will continue to make any adjustments necessary, by grinding and smoothing the dentures, so that you have a comfortable bite.
There will be a period of adjusting to your new dentures. You will have to learn how to eat and talk comfortably. While this can take some time, every time you look in the mirror at your beautiful new smile, you will feel better.
Time and Cost
The entire process from beginning to end can take four to six weeks. There will be several appointments, but we will accommodate your busy schedule and will ask you to come in only when necessary. We want to be sure your new dentures fit perfectly and comfortably.
The cost of your dentures will vary depending on whether you need only a partial or full set of dentures. They can cost anywhere from $500 to $2500. Some dental insurance plans will cover dentures, and others will not. Checking with your dental insurance plan will help you to know what the final cost will be for you. There are also third-party financing options such as CareCredit (www.carecredit.com) that you can investigate.
Having a full set of functioning teeth will help you to eat and talk comfortably, and laugh again. You can’t put a price on that! Take the first step and schedule your free consultation by clicking here.
