The process of getting your Dentures

Millions of people worldwide wear dentures, and if this is a procedure you might be about to undergo you may be curious as to how they are made. With that in mind, this article will explain the process for you.

The planning stage

Before making impressions, a thorough examination will need to be conducted in order to assess the health of your mouth. The denturist will examine your mouth to assess if you are a candidate for dentures.

Taking Impressions

The next stage will be to take an impression of the mouth/gums. This imprint will later be used to make an initial cast. You’ll need to have further impresses taken; once a final impression has been made, this will be used for the master cast.

Getting the master cast right is essential, as your new dentures will need to fit your mouth perfectly to minimize any discomfort. Once the final cast had been completed, it will be ready to go to the manufacturing stage at a laboratory. The Nancy Nhan Le Denture clinic has an in house laboratory, which reduces waiting costs and ensures the quality remains high.

Fitting

When the manufacturing phase is complete, you’ll be invited back to your denturist practice to try out the new dentures. At this stage, there will need to be some checks so your denturist can make sure that the shape and the position of the teeth are correct for you, and they’ll also ensure the shade looks natural.

When these final changes have been made, you will need to make another appointment with your denturist to have your finished dentures fitted.

At the next visit, the dentist will make some final checks to ensure the dentures fit comfortably, and they’ll also offer advice on adjusting to your new dentures; you might need some further appointments while you adapt to them and while you get accustomed to eating and drinking different foods.

Types of Dentures

If you feel that dentures might be a good option, you’ll need to be aware of the different types of dentures that are available and the materials they are made from. In this article, you’ll find information on the various types that are currently offered.

Partial dentures – these can be made from either acrylic or metal, or a combination of the two materials. These types of dentures are used when one or more teeth are missing and a patient doesn’t need a full set of dentures.

Implanted support dentures – with this option, the dentures will be fitted alongside an implant. It is more common to use this as an option for the lower jaw when the patient doesn’t have any teeth. However, there will have to be sufficient teeth for the implant to be effective and for this method to work.

Complete dentures – again, these are either made from acrylic or metal; the quality of the materials can vary. Complete dentures will replace either a top row or the bottom row of the teeth, or all of the them if necessary.

In addition, extra care will have to be taken by your denturist to ensure that the dentures are fitted comfortably so they enable you to talk, eat and drink properly without causing any discomfort.

Immediate dentures – during the transitional phase, it might be more comfortable for you to have some immediate dentures fitted; this can make you feel less self-conscious while awaiting the new ones.

If you are considering immediate dentures, you will need to speak to your denturist first; it will be necessary to arrange to have impressions and measurements taken so that your clinic can ensure your immediate dentures are the correct fit.

Denture Problems

 Common denture problems

Dentures can be transformative to a person’s life in many ways. They can help to replace lost confidence and restore your smile, and once you are used to your new dentures, they can enable you to eat foods and consume drinks that you might not have been able to previously.

However, there are also a number of common difficulties that a person might experience when they are fitted with new dentures. These problems can include:

Poorly fitted dentures

One common problem with dentures is that they can sometimes be poorly fitted. This can mean they are either too tight or too loose; too tight dentures can cause soreness, rubbing and irritation, while too loose dentures can make it difficult to eat and drink.

Soreness and cheek biting

Patients can also experience soreness as a result of dentures, especially as they learn to adjust to them, and you might find that it is more common to accidentally bite on the inside of your cheeks.

Problems Eating

Dentures can have an adverse effect on the types of food that you are able to eat. This means that you will have to learn to chew properly with your dentures and you’ll have to avoid foods that need a significant amount of chewing. In addition, some people will have problems eating sticky foods.

Moreover, there can also be some problems adjusting to drinking common beverages such as tea and coffee.

Excessive saliva and trapped food

Another issue some patients report is trapped food and a build up a saliva behind the dentures. A patient has to be careful that excessive saliva and trapped food doesn’t built up as this can cause further discomfort.
