Dentures Q & A

How Are Dentures Made?

Dentures are created for each patient and his or her needs. Due to their customized nature, dentures require a few visits to receive the final product. During the initial appointment, Dr. Borisson will make an impression of the patient’s mouth and take several precise measurements. At the second appointment, the patient will be able to try on a model denture and offer feedback about the look and feel. Dr. Borisson will then proceed to make any necessary adjustments based on the patient’s feedback and the final version of the denture is sent to be manufactured in a lab and delivered to the patient to wear.

Do Dentures Change the Way People Speak and Eat?

Yes, dentures improve the patient’s ability to speak and eat. Dentures allow patients to chew normally and to speak without the presence of a lisp. Dentures are more reliable than crowns and bridges and will increase the overall stability of the patient’s mouth.

How Are Dentures Held in the Mouth?

Dentures are custom-fitted to the patient’s jaw and stay in place effortlessly and naturally. However, if the patient wants added security and confidence, denture adhesive is the solution. Two main types of adhesives are available: pastes and powders. The paste is used by simply applying small dots along the ridge of the dentures and the process can be performed while the dentures are wet or dry. Denture powders are recommended over pastes because they are easier to use and easier to clean while ensuring a better fit. Powderswork by simply sprinkling the adhesive onto the places where it will touch the gums.

What Are the Benefits of Dentures?

Dentures are a favorite among patients for many reasons. Dentures are removable and do not require any painful procedures to install. They are also very easy to keep clean and tidy at all times. Dentures also serve to exercise facial muscles and keep them from sagging while enhancing and maintaining the patient’s natural smile for years to come.
