Whether it is your first set of dentures, or a replacement set, getting a new full denture can can be a dauting task. Midcoast Denture Design strives to make it as simple as possible. Every treatment plan is individualized, and your concerns are always put first.
Typically, most full/complete dentures require 4-5 appointments.
This is when your denturist will make a model of the oral tissues to begin the denture fabrication process
Everyone's jaw closes in their own unique way. At this appointment we will record how your jaw closes, so that the dentures will bite together properly.
The appearance of your smile can be a very sensitive subject. We pride ourselves in making sure you love the appearance of your new smiles. This appointment is a final check of the denture appearance before they are finished.
At the appointment you will go home with your new denture! It is normal for a new denture to feel foreign and different in the mouth. Typically, we allow for 6-12 weeks for a patient to fully adapt to a new denture. Adjustments are necessary, and for that reason we will schedule a post insert exam to follow up with you regarding the fit and function of the new denture.
Partial dentures can be a confusing and frustrating treatment option for patients. Midcoast Denture Design offers a variety of treatment options that best fit our patients' needs. Depending on the existing natural teeth and the patient's esthetic concerns we will develop a treatment plan and explain options available.
Typically, partial dentures can be made from 3 different types of materials:
1.)Cast Metal Framework Partial
2.)Vinyl/nylon flexible partial
