Initial consultation

To begin the process, Dr. Poblenz will examine your mouth to determine if full or partial dentures are right for you and discuss all of your options for restoring your smile.

Tooth extractions (full dentures only)

If you are getting full dentures, all of your remaining teeth must be pulled before the denture fitting process begins. You will get a set of temporary dentures to wear while your mouth heals.

Denture fitting

At your initial denture fitting, Dr. Poblenz will take impressions of your teeth and/or gums, and create a bite mold based on your bite. He will record a lot of different information about your mouth, and send all of this information to a dental lab where your test dentures will be made.

Wax denture try-in

The dental lab will build a set of test dentures, which consist of false teeth set in a wax base, and send them to JAX Dental Studio. You’ll come back to our office to try the dentures on, and see how they fit. This process will be repeated multiple times to ensure you get the best possible fit.

Final dentures

Once your test dentures fit perfectly, the dental lab will build a set of permanent partial or full dentures and send them to JAX Dental Studio. You’ll just need to come in and pick up your new teeth. At this time, Dr. Poblenz will also provide you with information about how to care for your dentures.

The Benefits Of Dentures

The biggest benefit of dentures is that you can restore your natural smile and bite, and replace one, several, or all of your teeth. This improves your self-confidence, your speech, and your ability to eat your favorite foods. 

Dentures are almost always covered by insurance, at least partially, and they tend to be the most affordable way to replace one or more missing teeth. If you are on a tight budget, this makes full or partial dentures a great choice.

Are Dentures Right For Me?

If you have lost all of your teeth or all of your remaining teeth must be pulled due to serious oral health issues, full dentures may be a good choice, particularly if you do not have the budget for an alternative treatment like implant-supported dentures.

Partial dentures are also a good option if you’ve lost one or a few teeth, and you are not interested in alternative treatments like dental bridges or dental implants. 

The best way to find out whether dentures are right for you is to contact JAX Dental Studio for an appointment with Dr. Poblenz. He can discuss all of your options for replacing your missing teeth in further detail.
