The length of time it takes to get your completed denture varies and is dependent on the condition of your mouth, teeth, and gums. Each person’s situation is unique, so timelines will be different for each person. Our denturist will proceed as quickly as your case allows and his personal attention to you guarantees the earliest possible delivery of your dentures.
Normally, the process takes a few weeks. It usually takes several appointments to complete a set of dentures from start to finish. This includes consultations, teeth extractions (if necessary), impressions, pre-fitting, and final adjustments.
There are different stages of the process:
- Tooth Extraction
- Impression Taking
- Building Dentures
You and our denturist will discuss your tooth replacement needs at this stage. Our denturist will examine your teeth, mouth, and gums and offer the best denture solutions for you, based on your demands and budget. This stage may require several appointments.
TOOTH EXTRACTION (IF NECESSARY)
After tooth extraction, we will wait for your gums to completely heal, which could take several weeks. However, while waiting for permanent dentures, to avoid going out toothless after your extraction, there is an option to get immediate dentures on the same day.
This step is all about getting accurate impressions of your mouth, teeth, and gums so that we can design and build your dentures and make sure they fit you.
This stage may include getting bite molds and producing wax replicas for you to try in your mouth. Since we make all dentures in our on-site lab, this eliminates the majority of waiting time and allows us to keep costs lower. With our in house lab we deliver quality products, since we are able to see, feel, and clearly understand exactly what it is you need.
After we’ve completed the final version of your dentures, you’ll try them on to check how they fit. We may make any necessary modifications to ensure that they are as comfortable and functional as possible.
