Dentures: What to Expect Before, During, and After Your Procedure

At Media Dental Care, we understand the stigma that having broken, cracked, or missing teeth can create. Thankfully, dentures can provide an excellent solution for people with this condition by relieving the difficulties associated with it, such as eating, talking, and performing many other everyday tasks. But before undergoing the procedure, here’s what you need to know about it:

 

Before the Treatment

While dentures may seem like a big step to take regarding your oral care, our friendly and courteous specialists at Media Dental Care have the experience to provide you with the confidence that you’ll soon be looking your best after this procedure.

First, you’ll fill out a patient history form to assess your individual needs and dental requirements. Next, we’ll begin examining your teeth by taking impressions of them, possibly in addition to photos or X rays. This is a critical part of the process which ensures the most precise and accurate fitting of your dentures, so they can eventually be snug and secure once in your mouth.

 

During the Procedure

After your initial consultation, your full or partial dentures will be custom-fabricated based on your impressions to properly fit the contours of your mouth. Once they’re complete, we will apply them and make any necessary adjustments to ensure they fit comfortably and precisely.

For fixed denture patients, this part of the process will include oral surgery to implant the artificial tooth into the jaw and gum tissue. After the titanium root biologically fuses with the bone, the final dentures can be attached to the implants.

 

Aftercare

Adjusting to your new dentures sometimes takes patience and time. Our oral healthcare professionals will work closely with you to make any further adjustments or alterations with your new dentures and make sure they’re functioning correctly and fitting comfortably in your mouth. A routine of daily care, including cleaning and maintaining your dentures, is highly recommended to keep them looking their best and prevent stains and odor from occurring.

At Media Dental Care, we want to help restore not only your smile but also the self-confidence and satisfaction that accompany it with cosmetic dentures. To get started with a consultation, call us at 484-444-2793 or visit  https://mediadentalcare.com/ today!
