Prosthodontist Rochester, NY
For dental patients whose natural teeth are simply not in good enough condition to go on functioning properly, the best choice for many of them is having a set of complete dentures fabricated and placed by one of our skilled practitioners. Here at Dental Prosthodontics of Rochester our prosthodontist specializes in taking care of patients in need of these types of procedures, as well as providing the continued support and assistance to make sure that the dental appliances continue to work and fit correctly.
For some people, the process of getting fitted for a set of dentures might be quick and simple. For others, it could require a significant removal and extraction process first. Regardless of how much or how little effort has to go into your particular procedure, we are always ready to do whatever it takes to help our patients get through it as smoothly as possible.
Deciding if Complete Dentures Might Be Right for You
When it comes to alternative options concerning a full mouth replacement, there aren’t any other non-permanent choices. As far as removable dental appliances go for the entire mouth, this is the only one. However, for those seeking a permanent solution, dental implants, as well as the All-on-4® Treatment Concept can also provide a replacement for a full set of teeth, however the price difference is beyond significant. For patients to whom price is a concern, complete dentures offer improved functionality over what they currently have, as well as creating a smile that they aren’t ashamed to show.
Getting an Evaluation
To find out exactly what you qualify for and what the best path forward for you in regards to your upcoming dental treatment or procedure may be, it would be best for you to set up a time to come by our office and have a thorough exam as soon as possible. Once our oral health professional takes the time to go over your particular condition, we will then be in a much better position to offer advice on what it is that you need to have done in order to restore your mouth to a better functioning and more attractive state.
What Goes Into the Actual Process?
If it turns out that complete dentures are the right choice for you after consulting with our specialist, you will then be scheduled to come in and begin the procedure. First, any remaining teeth will need to be removed before going any further. Next, primary and secondary impressions will be taken and the actual dimensions of the denture will be determined by our dental expert. A set of immediate dentures will be available for you to wear during the healing and recovery process after having your remaining teeth extracted. This usually takes eight to twelve weeks, at the end of which the conventional or complete set will be ready for placement. Finally, there is nothing left to do after the procedure is complete except to get back to enjoying life with the confidence that having a full set of teeth and a nice white smile brings.
