Dentures are dental restorations that are sometimes recommended for patients who have lost some or all of their teeth. Dentures feature a gum-colored base that support one or more replacement teeth. A denture can be either removable or fixed in place with dental implants. Dentures are a safe and reliable option for many patients who wish to regain their ability to eat, speak, and smile after losing some or all of their teeth. Dr. Adatia has successfully rehabilitated hundreds of smiles using dentures and can do the same for you.
To have dentures made at Northwest Prosthodontics, you will need to come in for two to six appointments, depending on the type of dentures you require. During your first visit, our dentist will consult with you to understand your unique needs. After this, impressions or a 3D scan will be taken of your teeth/mouth to be sent to the dental lab. During your final appointment, you will be given your new dentures and shown how to put them on and remove them (if removable dentures were desired), as well as be taught how to properly maintain them. Dentures often feel odd at the beginning, but this feeling wears off as your tongue and cheeks get accustomed to this new addition. If, after getting your dentures, you experience soreness or sensitivity that does not get better, give us a call and we will bring you in right away to adjust your denture for comfort. Our patients’ comfort and well-being is the topmost priority of Dr. Adatia and her staff.
