What Is A Denture Consultation?
A denture consultation is a meeting with a patient and a dentist or prosthodontist to talk over the solutions available for replacing missing teeth with dentures. The oral health specialist will give you an examination to determine what you need and inform you of the dentures that can help you.
The Process of A Denture Consultation
The first step in a denture consultation is the collation of your oral health history by the dentist. This will include all data relevant to your current oral health and the state of the dentures you currently have.
The next step in the process is an examination of your mouth, gums, jaws, bite, and remaining teeth. This is used to determine your suitability for dentures and what kind of dentures can help fix your problem.
Then, the dentist will take note of the particular functions you desire from your dentures. This is where you inform your dentist if you have some concerns about the functionality or the aesthetics of your prosthetic teeth. They will show you the available denture options and explain each of them to you.
Your bite impressions and registrations will also be taken during the consultation. They will be used to create a customized denture based on the type of denture you select. A wax model of the dentures is then constructed for you to test out the fit.
Finally, the oral health specialist will walk you through the financial side of the denture implantation procedure. If you need a treatment plan, the dentist will show you the available ones to choose from.
After The Consultation Is Complete
If you still have any concerns or questions at the end of the denture consultation, you can ask the dentist. This will help you know more and alleviate any fears you have about the procedure.
Questions You Should Ask

- How much time do I need to get used to the dentures?
