Dentures are fabricated, using a local lab, when you are missing all of your upper teeth and/or all of your lower teeth. They are held in your mouth through retention and suction and may also require an adhesive in some cases. In order to make a new set of dentures, we recommend four appointments to ensure proper fitting and tooth color and size. We want these dentures to last for the rest of your life, so we take the extra time to make sure that you are completely happy with the end result. The first appointment involves taking impressions, which are immediately sent to the lab. The lab sends back a wax model where we can try on the teeth to make sure everything fits well and you approve of the color. If everything feels and looks the way you imagined, you will receive your new set of dentures with a denture bath and a complete set of instructions for proper care. We are also able to send broken dentures, or dentures with missing teeth to the lab for a same-day repair.
