Q&A

1. How long do dentures take to make, and what is the process?

When it comes to saving your smile, you need to make an informed decision. The Denture Specialist will guide you through this process. At your free consultation, we will listen, ask questions, and together develop a plan that works best for your budget and schedule. After an average of four to six visits we will ensure that your dentures feel as natural as possible. We can’t be satisfied without redeeming your smile and bringing you complete satisfaction.

4. Do I have to use adhesive with my new dentures?

At The Denture Specialist, our experts take great pride in the fit and appearance of your new smile. Although every patient is different, their goal is the same: A great fit! Using proper techniques and procedures in the clinic and laboratory go a long way in keeping patients away from adhesives. The majority of patients with proper care can expect a better fit with little or no adhesive.
 

5. Do we do implants?

The Denture Specialist offers the placement of Implant Dentures. Dental Implants are a great alternative for patients who desire a more secure denture. The implant is an artificial tooth root, or small screw, which is surgically placed into the bone by an oral surgeon, periodontist, or dentist. The denturist will then make the dentures to fit the implants. Dental Implants are most commonly placed to hold the lower denture, but may also be used on the upper. Dental Implants are the ultimate solution for achieving a more secure fit for your denture.
