The Denture Process

During your first visit, you can expect a complete dental examination to determine your overall oral health. This is crucial to help your dentist decide whether a partial or a complete denture is best done on you. In some cases, such as an infection, your dentist may recommend that some of your teeth be extracted. Once the best course has been determined, your mouth will be measured. The dentist will then make a mold that will be sent to a dental technician to create your custom-fit dentures. After completing the dentures, they will be sent back to the dentist to have you fit them and to check if changes or adjustments are necessary. You will be given advice on how to care for your new dentures. Your next appointment will be set to keep an eye on your dentures and how you are adjusting to them.

During your visits before and after you get your dentures, you will be encountering different dental health professionals who play a specific role in your treatment course. Since we will be seeing each other a lot and working together for some time, we think it pays to know more about the team assisting you in getting your dentures made, fit, and kept.

When you visit the Affordable Dentures Gilbert AZ Dental Office, you will likely meet two or three members of our team. Here are what makes up our dental team and their roles:

  • The Dentist

    The dentist is generally responsible for examining, diagnosing, treating, and advising patients. When it comes to making and fitting dentures, a special kind of dentist called a “prosthodontist” takes measurements and primary impressions of your mouth using a thick paste. This thick paste is used to make a mold.

  • The Dental Assistant

    The dental assistant basically assists the dentist during treatments and helps maintain dental instruments and equipment. Dental assistants also aid the dentist in explaining specific procedures to patients and in documenting. In Arizona, dental assistants are allowed to provide basic supportive dental procedures.

  • The Dental Hygienist

    The dental hygienist’s job revolves around cleaning and examining teeth for decay and other irregularities. They also help dentists decide possible treatment for teeth or gum diseases. They help denture wearers care for their gums, natural teeth, and dentures.

  • The Dental Technician

    The dental technician does not work in the dental office but in the dental laboratory. They are the ones responsible for making dentures and dental appliances following the dentist’s prescription.

  • The Receptionist

    The receptionist plays a significant role in ensuring that the operations in the dental office run smoothly. They maintain the dental team’s schedule and provide patients with the information they need regarding appointments and billing.
