Patients who have never worn dentures may need orientation as to what to expect and how to adjust to them. They may likely have a host of questions concerning expectations and apprehensions. Some of these candidates are already edentulous, but most will choose to have their dentures made prior to their teeth being extracted. Dentures that are inserted into the patient’s mouth directly after extractions are called immediate dentures.
It is very important that appearance inconsistencies are caught before dentures are completed. This is accomplished at the wax try-in stage. It may be helpful for you to bring a friend along who has ability to help evaluate your smile. All necessary changes need to be made before the dentures go to the next stage where the pink wax will be changed to a gum color acrylic (irreversible). We recommend that, using a mirror, patients make every expression possible; smiling, frowning, laughing, talking, pronouncing words, etc. It is additionally advantageous for denture care providers to compare the try-in with the patient’s current dentures or a picture; making sure the try-in is acceptable, even if they need the laboratory to make some changes. The Family Dentist in Lancaster PA is here to assist their patients in obtaining a natural life-like appearance.
Denture wearers who are seeking to replace their current set of dentures may have been through one or two previous sets. These denture wearers are usually looking to reproduce desirable characteristics of an existing set or may want their provider to make improvements. The Family Dentist has the experience and artistic talent to meet difficult challenges. Challenges like these are often produced more effectively on a one-on-one patient relationship with the technologist who custom manufacturers the dentures.
Problematic dentures are dentures that, for some reason, give patients problems. They could be too loose, too tight, full of sharp spots, gagging them, not allowing them to chew their favorite foods, not staying in well or a host of other problems. We have experience in identifying the cause and remedying these kinds of problems. We invite you for a free consultation.
Upper dentures made by The Family Dentist PA stay in like glue without messy adhesives. However, we incorporate special techniques that enhance the retention and stability of lower dentures without use of messy denture adhesives. One technique that really works to make lower dentures stay in better is the Comfa-GripTM System. Other successful techniques are also available; giving positive results for patients who have trouble keeping their lowers snug.
Denture Stability begins with comfortably and snuggly fitting upper dentures, instilling confidence in denture wearers when they smile, speak and eat their favorite foods. With today’s technology, achieving that is relatively easy. Lower dentures will never fit and function correctly without upper dentures first having adequate retention.
Many conditions interfere with comfort in wearing dentures. The dentures could be too tight, loose, rough or overextended in one of its borders. The patient could be hyper sensitive to the dentures or maybe to the materials that the dentures are made from. The Family Dentist is experienced in finding the root of these kinds of problems and providing solutions.
A vast array of denture materials in the hands of denture professionals can achieve many positive results in denture care. Skilled technicians are quite knowledgeable of these materials. Having on board a dental technician, that has been custom building complete and partial dentures for over twenty-five years, we have a well rounded in-house dental laboratory background pertaining to modern materials and have a successful track record in utilizing them to produce positive results.
