What to Expect
Removable dentures are usually completed in 2-5 appointments with the dentist. Once the mouth is prepared for the dentures, the dentist will take molds of the patient’s mouth to send to the dental laboratory. While the custom dentures are being made, the patient will be given a set of temporary dentures to wear. Once the dentures are returned to the dentist, the patient will return to have their new dentures fitted and learn about proper denture care. The patient may need to return in 2-4 weeks so the dentist can re-check the fit of the dentures and the patient’s bite.
Removable dentures will need to be cleaned frequently, following the care instructions provided by the dentist. With proper care, removable dentures usually last 2-10 years. Patients should continue to schedule annual dental exams so the dentist can check the gums, any remaining teeth, and the condition of the dentures.
