Are you interested in how dentures are made? If so, you have come to the right blog! Our dentist, Dr. Samuel Yee DDS, is happy to explain how he prescribes complete and partial dentures to his patients.
For complete dentures, your dentist will extract your remaining natural teeth to create room for the appliance. Then, he will take measurements of your smile, mouth, and jaw and will send that information to a dental lab. There, your customized denture will be made. When it’s ready, it will be sent back to our office and your dentist will check its fit and appearance to make sure everything is in top-notch condition.
For partial dentures, your dentist will skip to the step of taking measurements of your smile. This is because no teeth will need to be pulled. Once the information is sent to the lab, technicians will create an appliance that will clasp to the surrounding natural teeth. When it’s sent back, your dentist will make sure it fits and works properly.
