Overdentures and Problems with Dentures

 

Placing a full denture

Placing a full dentureThe process of making a full denture varies in each case, and it usually involves a series of appointments. The first step is to take impressions of your mouth. An accurate model is made from these impressions, and the lab uses this model to create the denture base. In many cases, a wax rim is mounted on the base for you to try in. This helps confirm the correct relationship between the upper and lower teeth.

The lab then creates a wax replica of the final denture, called a wax-up. You will try in the wax-up, and we will note any changes to the fit of the base and to the color, shape, and placement of the teeth. We then send the wax-up back to the lab, and they process it to create the final denture.
When the denture is ready, you try it in, and we make any necessary adjustments.

Placing a partial denture

The process of making a partial denture varies in each case, and it usually involves a series of appointments. The first step is to shape the supporting teeth.

Placing a partial dentureNext, we take impressions of your mouth, including the prepared teeth.

An accurate model of your mouth is made from these impressions, and the lab uses this model to create the denture framework. In some cases, a wax rim is mounted on the framework for you to try in. This helps confirm the correct relationship between the upper and lower teeth.

After the try in, the lab creates a wax-up, which is a wax replica of the final denture. Depending on the circumstances, we may have you try in the wax-up, and we note any changes to the fit and to the color, shape and placement of the teeth. We send the wax- up back to the lab, and they process it to create the final partial denture.

When the partial is ready, you try it in, and we make any necessary adjustments here in the office.
