What is a Denturist2024-02-27T17:53:57+00:00

Denturists are licensed independent professionals trained to provide removable denture prosthetic services directly to the public. A denturist completes both clinical and laboratory procedures in-house.

What that means is that we are able to perform all the steps necessary to make a denture, resulting in fewer appointments, faster turnaround times, and in turn a happier client.

Denturists work together with your dentist to make partial dentures or immediate dentures when alterations to natural teeth are required.

List of services:

  • Assess and treat clients who are missing some or all of their natural teeth
  • Make, repair, reline, replace, or furnish complete or partial dentures
  • In accordance with a prescription from a client’s dentist, make or furnish partial dentures, overdentures, and implant-retained dentures
  • Reline, replace teeth, or make repairs to partial dentures, dentures, and overdentures.
What Do Denturists Do2024-02-27T20:18:39+00:00

Denturists are denture specialists. They are members of your oral healthcare team. A denturist’s practice is dedicated to the fabrication, repair, and adjustment of dentures, partial dentures, and removable implant-retained dentures.

Denturists are uniquely qualified to complete the 4-step process of making a denture:

  • Exam and evaluation (medical/dental history, visual intra/extraoral exam)
  • Impression of oral tissues and information about your bite
  • Set up and construct prosthesis
  • Deliver and adjust prosthesis
Why Choose a Denturist2024-02-28T03:53:01+00:00

A denturist’s occupation is to be responsible for the promotion, restoration, and rehabilitation of oral health which makes him or her the best possible choice to help you derive the maximum benefit from your denture experience.

Most denturist fees are covered by dental plans and denturists can be seen without a referral from another healthcare professional.

If you do not have a dental home or a regular dentist or need a referral to an oral surgeon, our denturist will be happy to refer you to the appropriate practitioner.

If your dentures are more than five years old, call us to schedule a complimentary consultation to discuss how we can enhance your appearance, confidence, and possibly your health with high-quality replacement dentures.

Our denturist is qualified to tell you when a denture needs to be replaced.

Indications your denture needs to be checked2024-03-08T19:39:38+00:00

Changes in your face, jaw, and tissues occur constantly. However, your denture prosthesis does not. These physical changes happen gradually and are mostly unnoticeable to you but listed below are some signs indicating your denture should be checked:

  • Food getting caught under denture
  • Mouth soreness, sore spots, possible irritated tissues
  • Loose-fitting, falling out when talking or eating
  • Jaw ridge bone loss
  • Thinning lips, sagging mouth causing a change in facial features e.g. chin sticking out further
  • Denture is not being used and is being left out
  • Headaches, ear pain, neck pain
  • Difficulty chewing food e.g. teeth not sharp anymore
  • Discoloration of pink acrylic or teeth
  • Denture has an odor
