What are Dentures and what types of Dentures are there?

Moreover, the choice of dentures depends on the number of teeth they replace they replace and they can be Partial dentures or complete dentures.

What are the most comfortable Dentures and what type of denture solution is best for me?

Although in theory all dentures can be made comfortable enough, the decision of which type of denture is best for each case is made after a proper examination.

Additionally, when doctors create the treatment plan, common factors considered when choosing a prosthetic solution include:

  • The amount of saliva remaining – dry mouth
  • Amount of bone remaining
  • Arch size
  • Arch shape
  • Amount of teeth remaining
  • Habits
  • Smile line
  • Gum Tissue

To sum up, depending on your situation we will give you options. Materials have evolved, techniques have changed, and the outcome has improved.

At Georgia Prosthodontics we want our patients to have that experience: Best results with the minimum discomfort, awesome Complete Dentures made in 5-6 appointments.

What are the steps of getting dentures?

1. Preliminary impression - Getting to know you

This is an exploratory stage to analyze your anatomy and determine the amount of bone loss, bone remaining, quality of the tissue, jaw arch size, and shape. Using this information, we pour a preliminary cast and fabricate a customized tray for a definitive impression. This impression can be done digitally in many cases

2. Final impression - Precision for comfort

This is the key step to fabricate a denture with minimal post-insertion adjustments or sore spots. Using the custom tray, we have previously fabricated and a special thermoplastic wax, we capture the range of motion and muscle insertions of the soft tissues around your mouth.

This wax is then covered with an elastomeric material to copy details of the tissue surface. Lastly, a master cast is poured and is used to fabricate your denture base.

3. Bite Registration and Vertical dimension - Denture face-lift

At this appointment, we will use the previously made denture base and by adding wax on top, we will determine the proper space your teeth should occupy within your mouth.

At the same time, we will provide proper support for your lips and cheeks-restoring youth and getting rid of wrinkles. Furthermore, we will also select the shade of your future teeth.

If you have a photograph of how your smile used to look like, this is the time to bring it.

4. Try-in - A preview of final results

This is a very exciting appointment! because you will get to try on your new teeth. Additionally, you will verify that all esthetic aspects are correct including teeth shade, shape, arrangement, midline, smile line, lip support, phonetics, and overall appearance.

5. Final insertion - Start smiling again

Now that your dentures have been processed, we will make sure the fit is perfect, the bite is as planned, and all the fine-tuned details we worked on have been carried to the final prostheses.

A master cast is poured and it will be used to fabricate your denture base.

6. Follow-up and adjustments - If needed 😉

Most of our patients need little to no adjustments. Most importantly, sore spots are usually minimal but we still would like to see you just to make sure that all is going as planned.
