It is a common misconception that only older people get dentures. However, the truth is that people of all ages could be in the need for either temporary or permanent dentures. Dentures are a removable replacement for missing teeth and the surrounding tissue. There are two different types of dentures available:
- Temporary dentures
- Permanent dentures
A temporary denture is a denture that is fitted for your mouth immediately after a tooth or teeth are removed. While in contrast a permanent denture is a denture that is built custom for you to wear long term. The process of making custom permanent dentures take anywhere from 3-6 weeks.
You'll schedule an appointment with our local dentist to be fitted for your dentures. Dr. Cohen will take impressions of your jaw to create impressions. Once the impressions have been taken then we'll make models to fix the exact shape of your denture. At this point in the denture making process you will be able to try on the model to make sure it fits properly before the final cast is made.
