IMPLANTS

RESTORATIVE

COSMETIC


Immediate dentures - Are ready for wear the same day any remaining teeth are removed so you don't have to spend the healing period toothless. The drawback is that you'll need more adjustments, since your gums and bones shrink during this period. The denture fabrication process will take weeks and several visits to complete. Again this is done before remaining teeth are extracted.

 

During the first visit, Dr. Haynes will take an impression. This gives her an exact mold to use when creating your immediate denture.

 
The next appointment will be the wax-rims. This will consist of making sure that your bite is correct with measurements using wax blocks, and choosing a tooth shade.


The following appointment will be the wax try-in. This step is very important because you give your approval of fit, comfort, and look. Once you have given the approval the immediate denture will be sent back to our lab and processed to completion. One week later your denture will be ready to deliver.


The final appointment will be the delivery, after removing the necessary teeth the denture is placed immediately. Dr. Haynes will do a post operation check the next day. A week later your denture will usually need some adjustments to get the fit just right. Sore spots may develop so you are encouraged to come in to get adjustments as needed.


*A RELINE will be necessary in future weeks since your gums and bones shrink during this period.


(This procedure will have several visits depending on the materials and approval needed. Each appointment will be about 30min)

During the first visit, Dr. Haynes will take an impression. This gives her an exact mold to use when creating your partial denture.


The second appointment will be a frame work try-in (skip this step for flexible base option). Making sure that the metal frame work fits comfortably into prepared rest seats on selected teeth.

The next appointment will be the wax-rims. This will consist of making sure that your bite is correct with measurements using wax blocks, and choosing a tooth shade.


The following appointment will be the wax try-in. This step is very important because you give your approval of fit, comfort, and look. Once you have given the approval the partial denture will be sent back to our lab and processed to completion. One week later your partial denture will be ready to deliver.


The final appointment will be the delivery usually involving some adjustments to get the fit just right. Sore spots may develop so you are encouraged to come in to get adjustments as needed.

Partial dentures - Partial dentures are used if you're missing some teeth in your upper (maxillary) or lower (mandibular) jaws. A removable partial denture is also known as a removable dental bridge. A removable dental bridge fills the gap between two healthy teeth and consists of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base. Removable partial dentures are connected by a metal framework that helps keep them in place. The denture fabrication process will take weeks and several visits to complete.

Full dentures - Complete dentures are used if you're missing teeth in your upper (maxillary) or lower (mandibular) jaws. These are either "conventional" or "immediate." Conventional dentures are made after any remaining teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed (usually two to three months). The denture fabrication process will take weeks and several visits to complete.


During the first visit, Dr. Haynes will take an impression. This gives her an exact mold to use when creating your complete denture.

Removable Prosthetics

Hard Denture Reline - The impression material is replaced with a hard pink acrylic that is perfectly formed to the contours of your mouth. This type of relining is recommended every two years and provides the most contact with your gum tissue for maximum hold. 


(This procedure takes about 12-24 hours. Please be prepared to be without your appliance.)


Soft Denture Reline - For patients whose gums are too tender for hard relining, Dr. Haynes may opt to reline the denture surface with a softer, more flexible material. Although easier on the gums, this type of relining may have to be replaced more often to maintain a proper fit.


(This procedure takes about 45min)

Reline - It's a fact over time dentures become worn and don't fit as well, so it's important to reline them regularly. Denture adhesives, while a great way to help keep well-fitting dentures in place, should not be used in place of continual denture relining. The bones and tissues in your mouth change over time. In fact, once you have a tooth extraction, the bone that once held the tooth in place begins to shrink. Since dentures require a tight fit against your gum tissue, it's important to adjust the denture base to keep up with this shift. Let’s C U Smile offers two different types of relines.

Other partial and full denture services:


Flexible Base partial and full dentures - Alternate type of partial/complete denture, which provides excellent aesthetics and comfort for patients who prefer to wear a removable denture. By using a flexible base, the restoration can adapt to the constant movement and flexibility in your mouth. Ask Dr. Haynes or anyone on the Let’s C U Smile Team about details.

The next appointment will be the wax-rims. This will consist of making sure that your bite is correct with measurements using wax blocks, and choosing a tooth shade.
