Your Clinical Dental Technician will take the first set upper & lower impressions to begin the denture making process. This will involve taking an imprint of your mouth which will then be cast in to plaster models so that we can prepare wax bite blocks and custom made special trays for your next appointment.
The Clinical Dental Technician will register your bite and take new impressions in the custom made special trays. They will record your mouth measurements to ensure a good denture fit. You will be shown a selection of teeth to choose the size and colour that is best for you. Your CDT will then cast the new impressions and prepare your denture in wax with your selected choice of teeth for the next appointment.
You will try-in the wax set-up of your dentures. You will be able to discuss any changes which you would like to make. If you prefer, you may take the wax set-up away with you to discuss with any family members or friends for any second opinions to give you confidence that you have made the right choice on teeth selection. Once they have been returned to The Denture Studios and you are completely happy, the process into the final product will take place.

The length of time your dentures last can depend on how much use you give them and how well you look after them. If they are looked after they should last for several years. We recommend that to achieve the best amount of time from them that they are cleaned frequently and that you have them checked by a Dental Professional regularly.
Of course, as time goes by they will suffer from natural wear and tear. As you age, your dentures may become loose as your bite changes and your gums shrink back. In some cases modifications to your existing dentures can be made.
If you are finding that your dentures are breaking frequently then it is highly likely that a new set will be recommend and this may be more cost effective than having the continual expense of a denture repair.
Yes. If you have any spaces in your mouth, your existing teeth will naturally move to take up some of the space. This may result in your teeth looking crooked or tilted. If this occurs your bite may be affected which may cause other teeth becoming damaged.
Keep all pieces of your denture in a glass of cold water so that they do not dry out. Contact either your dentist or a Dental Technician to arrange an appointment for them to be repaired. Here at The Denture Studios, we can offer a quick, 1 hour service and also operate an Emergency out of hours service should you require. We strongly recommend that you do not attempt to repair the denture yourself as glue can melt the acrylic and may result in the denture not fitting comfortably and a technician not being able to adjust.
