What to Expect
A denture procedure begins with our team of dental professionals at DentalWorks - Hickory getting the patient's teeth to be ready, which usually does include X-rays, an exam and cleaning, and any dental work, such as fillings. As soon as the mouth is prepared, imaging X-rays and professional impressions will be created and taken to our laboratory so that the customized dentures can be manufactured. As the permanent dentures are being created, our dentists will offer the patient interim dentures to wear. When the new dentures have been created our dentists will place them and secure them for a long lasting fit.
Professionally customized dentures require at-home care instructions so they remain in healthy condition. The dentists at DentalWorks - Hickory will give these instructions when the patient receives their dentures. If taken care of, removable dentures can hold up for a very long time. Our dentists recommend that patients get ongoing exams to verify that the fit and wear and tear of the dentures are acceptable.
