The Process of Getting Dentures: What to Expect


The First Appointment

The first appointment takes about 30 minutes. Dr, Landman will examine your teeth and consult you on what kind of dentures you want and how you want them to feel in your mouth. He’ll then use a special dental mold to take impressions of your teeth. These impressions are used to create special impression trays for your mouth specifically.

The Second Appointment

The subsequent appointment takes about 30 to 40 minutes and involves taking secondary impressions. These impressions are different from the ones Dr. Landman took during the first appointment. The secondary impressions create special trays that mimic your mouth’s exact anatomy. Dr. Landman will ask you to take a wax bite to check your jaw alignment and create a trial denture.

The Third Appointment

Here, you’ll try on the wax dentures to check their fit, mouth feel, color, and appearance. This will form the basis of the final denture. It’s important to raise any concerns with the denture during this appointment. That way, Dr. Landman can implement any changes and ensure you get a perfect set of dentures.

The Fourth Appointment

This appointment is where you’ll collect your new teeth. Dr. Landman will help install them on your teeth and make adjustments if necessary. Your dentures might feel a little uncomfortable at first, but you’ll get used to it.

How Do I Care For My Dentures?

Gently clean your dentures daily using a soft-bristled brush and non-abrasive denture cleaner. Also, remove them before going to sleep and soak them in clean water or a denture-cleaning solution. Don’t forget to rinse your dentures with warm water after eating or drinking to remove food particles that may promote the breeding of bacteria.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

Anyone with missing teeth is a good candidate for dentures, provided they have healthy gum tissue and enough bone mass. If you have one or two missing teeth, Dr. Landman may suggest dental bridges instead. Sometimes he might have to treat your gum disease symptoms and schedule jaw bone grafting before you can get dentures.

What are dentures and why might I need them?

Dentures are a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. They come in two main types: full and partial dentures. Full dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.

You might need dentures if you've lost all or most of your natural teeth, whether from gum disease, tooth decay or injury. Losing teeth can make it hard to eat and speak clearly, and it can also affect your appearance. Dentures can help fill out the appearance of your face and profile. They can be made to closely resemble your natural teeth so that your appearance doesn't change much. Dentures may even improve the look of your smile.

How can I get dentures in Mahopac, NY?

If you're considering getting dentures in Mahopac, your first step should be to schedule a consultation with a qualified dentist, like Dr. Robert Landman at Landman Dentistry by the Lake, PLLC. During this consultation, Dr. Landman will assess your oral health, discuss your options, and determine whether dentures are the right solution for you.

If you and Dr. Landman decide that dentures are the best option, he will take impressions of your mouth to create a model of your jaw. This model will be used to custom-make your dentures to ensure they fit perfectly and comfortably. Once your dentures are ready, you'll have a fitting appointment where Dr. Landman will adjust them as necessary to ensure they fit well and feel comfortable.

How do I care for my dentures?

Proper care of your dentures can help them last longer and stay looking their best. Here are some tips for denture care:

1. Clean your dentures daily: Just like natural teeth, dentures must be brushed daily to remove food and plaque and prevent staining. Use a soft-bristled brush and non-abrasive denture cleanser.

2. Handle your dentures carefully: When handling your dentures, stand over a folded towel or a basin of water. Dentures are delicate and can break if dropped.

3. Soak your dentures overnight: Most types of dentures need to stay moist to keep their shape. Place the dentures in water or a mild denture-soaking solution overnight.

4. Rinse your dentures before wearing them: After soaking your dentures overnight, rinse them thoroughly under running water before putting them back in your mouth, especially if they were in a denture-soaking solution.

4. Schedule regular dental checkups: Dr. Landman will advise you about how often to visit, but regular checkups are important so that he can make sure your dentures fit properly, to check for signs of oral diseases including cancer, and to have professional cleaning.

Remember, it's important to replace your dentures every five to seven years to ensure they continue to fit well and function properly. If you have any questions or concerns about your dentures, don't hesitate to reach out to Dr. Landman at Landman Dentistry by the Lake, PLLC.
