The total duration of receiving dentures will usually last several weeks and will require a few visits. Below is an outline of what you can expect:
– First, Dr. Van Treese will take an impression of your teeth and mouth. These impressions will be used to accurately manufacture your custom-made denture.
– Next, you will be required to attend some visits to make sure the denture is going to be a good fit.
– If you need to have teeth extracted, they will be removed at this time.
– Dr. Van Treese will place a temporary denture for your comfort until your custom-made denture is complete.
– Finally, after your custom-made denture is ready, your temporary denture will be removed and your permanent denture will be placed.
After your procedure is complete, you may experience at increase in salivary flow, some tenderness throughout your mouth, and trouble eating and talking. Luckily, these side effects are nothing serious and will subside after you get used to your new dentures.
