Nov 19, 2022 | Digital Dentures

If you’ve been struggling with bad teeth, you are probably wondering “How can I get false teeth?” Follow these 6 steps to get your best dentures.

Step 1: A Consultation

The first step is always sitting down with your dentist at a consultation to discuss what needs to be done. It’s important to tell your dentist why you feel ready for dentures and what you hope they will look and feel like. Make sure you get time to ask your dentist whatever questions you have about extractions and complete dentures and the process of getting dentures. The consultation sets the foundation for your to get the best dentures possible. This is a critical step because it makes sure that your dentist knows exactly what you want in your new teeth and it also makes sure you know what to expect in the process going forward. People who skip or hurry through the consultation usually end up disappointed in the end. How do you get false teeth? Start with a free consultation.

If you don’t have a regular dentist and aren’t sure how to pick the best one for you, check out this guide to finding the denture dentist who matches you best. You don’t have to live in our area for this to work. It will work to help you find the best dentist for you in any city.

Step 2: Make a Plan for Your Treatment

Once you’ve had a consultation, it’s time to plan your treatment with your dentist. Your dentist will take x-rays and molds of your mouth to plan out your extractions and to start the design of your new smile that you’ll receive the day that your natural teeth are pulled. We use a 3D CT to digitally run through your surgery ahead of time. This really helps reduce complications! How can you get false teeth? Pick a doctor and ask him to make a good plan.

Step 3: Design Your Healing Denture

After your dentist plans your surgery, he uses your molds to start making your new teeth. In our office, Dr. Bec scans the molds into his digital denture lab and designs your healing phase temporary dentures there. Some offices design every denture the same. Other dentists love to customize each one to what the patient wants. At our office, we make each denture according to what the patient wants. We’ve made all sorts from new Hollywood smile dentures to removable dentures that look exactly like your smile when it was healthy. If you have a picture of your smile when it was healthy that you love, this is the time to bring it to your appointment and show your dentist. How do you get false teeth?

Step 4: Schedule Surgery

Making an appointment is obviously no big deal. However, if you want sedation during your surgery, you’ll want to be sure to schedule the surgery on a day off from work. You’ll also want to coordinate a driver. After sedation, you’ll want a family member or friend to pick you up and drive you home. Don’t underestimate the importance of rest during the healing process. It’s better to heal healthy than to be a hero.

Step 5: Get Your Extractions & A New Smile!

When the big day arrives, you’ll step into the office with your bad remaining teeth and out of the office with your brand new smile. Getting extractions and same day healing dentures will transform your smile! Expect to go home and spend the day resting. You can also expect your family and friends to be amazed with your new beautiful smile! We are lucky enough to get to see this transformation on a regular basis. One of our patients was driven by her mom and sisters and they waited for her through her whole appointment. When she came out with her new smile, they all started crying for joy.

Getting a beautiful new set of teeth is truly transformational and brings a lot a relief and joy when you’ve been suffering with miserable, ugly teeth for a long time.

Step 6: Healing & Denture Comfort Adjustments

The process of getting false teeth doesn’t end the day you get them. The next 3-6 months are a healing phase when your gums and bone will be changing a lot. As your mouth changes, your new teeth will need to be adjusted and relined several times to keep them stable and comfortable.

Removable dentures do have a learning curve. It takes everyone a while to learn how to talk and eat with artificial teeth that sit on top of the gums instead of in them. If you’re frustrated, don’t hesitate to talk to you dentist about it. Some of the difficulty and discomfort is just normal healing and other times something needs to be adjusted. New denture wearers forget that their dentist can’t read their mind. Each person’s experience is a little different and your dentist needs you to communicate what’s working and what’s not.

    Just had two crowns removed, two cavities treated, and two temporary crowns installed. The next day I had the temporary crowns removed and permanent crowns installed. All materials and equipment used were first class, the work was minimally uncomfortable and most importantly the final product is as near perfect as humanly possible. Same results for his implants and cavity resolution. Dr. Bec is highly skilled, compassionate and his staff is likewise. I recommend Dr. Bec to anyone who values their teeth.

    I’ve been a patient of this dental practice since 2013 and I’ve never been disappointed! Every single time I come in I’m being welcomed by Yvonne and Stephanie with a big friendly smile. They call me by name and make the experience personal. I was generally afraid of dental appointments but Dr Bec, assistants Desire and Gill, Otilia(executive) and the entire team made the visits feel enjoyable, they made me feel part of the family and I would always leave the office with a smile. I can’t thank them enough for the care and support they offer during each visit. I greatly recommend this dental office, and specifically Dr Bec for the amazing work he does. I smile bigger and brighter because of the work he does! I recently finished my Invisalign treatment and the results are amazing. I’ve gotten many compliments on my new smile. Thank you so much for all you do! Maria Bizau
