Denture Treatment Process
Making a denture is a process that usually takes about 6-12 weeks, however this can vary from one patient to another. Using your mouth as a model, Dr. Holloway will take an impression of the upper and lower arches of your mouth. This impression is then sent to the dental lab so that custom dentures can be created to fit your mouth comfortably.
On your next visit, Doc will note the fit and nuances that best resemble your original bite and in conjunction with you help recommend the shape and color of the denture teeth and gums. Because the color of everyone’s gums varies, and you may have certain goals for the look of your teeth, the Floss team will work with you to choose a solution that looks natural and best fits your mouth.
In the subsequent visits Doc will adjust your bite, test your speech and check the appearance and functionality of the denture teeth and gums. After you are satisfied with the fit and appearance, the denture is sent back to the lab for final fabrication.
