How Are Dentures Fitted?
The following steps are likely to take place with fitting in dentures:
- An initial consultation by your dentist is necessary to examine your mouth to ensure it’s healthy enough for a denture. Your medical history will also be discussed.
- If your teeth need extracting, you may need to seek further tooth extraction treatment before applying dentures. This will be determined at the initial examination. The condition of your gums will also be examined in case there are multiple gaps in your mouth already.
- The dentist will then form a mould using dental putty for you to bite into. This will ensure the correct denture shape is created for the best fit. Your biting point will be examined to ensure it is comfortable.
