The denture making process takes a few weeks and several appointments. Once your dentist determines what type and design of denture is best for you, the treatment starts with a series of impressions of the upper and lower jaw, registration of the bite, and facial measurements.
Models of your teeth are made to subsequently form the shape and position of the future denture using wax. Several trial fittings will be done with this model and the denture will be assessed for the color of the artificial teeth, shape, and fit before the final denture is processed.
Adjustments will be made as necessary for every step of the treatment.
Dental visit every year to check and examine the adaptation of the denture to the oral mucosa.
Clean the dentures properly by brushing it with soap or denture cleansers to remove foul odor.
Remove the denture every night so the oral mucosa can properly rest from all day coverage of the denture and prevent formation of fungal diseases.
