Complete Dentures are prostheses that are customized to fit your upper and/or lower jaw. Your mouth is unique and it may not be suitable for wearing complete dentures. Pre-prosthetic surgery (reshaping surgery) may be needed to optimize the fit of a new complete denture(s).
Occasionally, some patients may not be candidates for dentures due to medical conditions (radiation therapy to the head and neck, Parkinson's disease, seizure disorders, Sjogren's disease, and other similar conditions). In these cases, alternative treatment options may be necessary.
It is our goal to provide you with optimal fit and esthetics (the way your teeth will look). Your jawbone(s) may be in a position that will dictate the teeth be put in a position which will work best for chewing. This may not allow us to set the teeth as cosmetically as we would desire. However, our goal is to provide you with optimal function and esthetics with your new set of complete dentures.
As with any treatment, there is no guarantee that you will easily function with the dentures. However, a customary adjustment period is expected. During this time, excess saliva, sore spots, bite adjustments and minor changes in speech may occur. It is our goal to minimize these changes to allow you to adapt as best as possible to your denture(s). Any routine adjustments to the denture(s) for the first 6 months will be included in the cost of the denture(s). After that, adjustments will be done at an additional and customary charge.
Instructions for denture wear will be given to you at the delivery appointment along withÂ care instructions. Please remember, treatment with complete denture(s) is a team effort from dentist and you.
