The Denture Procedure
Your dentist will first assess your needs and comprehensively examine your mouth to determine if you are suitable for denture. Fitting of dentures usually take 2 to 4 visits.
The first visit is dedicated to taking impressions or moulds of your teeth. The mould will be used as a model for your dentures and will be sent to a lab. An experienced dental technician will fabricate your denture.
To start fabricating your tooth replacement, the dental technician will create a custom tray for a more precise mould of your teeth in wax. This mould is used to create the final, custom-made dentures. Once the denture is ready, your dentist will install the appliance and assess its comfort and fit.
After the procedure, your dentist at Bendigo Smiles will also provide detailed home care instructions about the proper ways of taking good care of your dentures so they can last for many years.
