Are your missing teeth affecting your confidence and daily life? Are you ready to take action to restore your smile with custom dentures? Step one of that process is finding the right dentist, so here are some tips that can help you make this critical decision.

Schedule a Consultation (or Several)

As you begin your restorative dental journey, you’ll want to schedule consultations to meet with various dental providers. These meetings will give you a sense of the dentist’s expertise, willingness to listen to your concerns, and suggestions for treatment. You’ll have a chance to communicate your preferences and ask any questions you have. This is also a great opportunity to discuss financial details and scope out the amenities offered by different offices.

Ask About Traditional vs. Implant-Supported Dentures

Did you know that there is more than one type of dentures for you to choose from? If you are leaning more towards one or the other, be sure to look for a local dentist who is skilled in providing the specific treatment that best fits your needs.

  • Traditional dentures sit securely on top of your gums and stay in place with the help of dental adhesive. These can be either full dentures, replacing all of your teeth, or partial, if you only need to replace a few teeth to fill the gaps in your smile. Traditional dentures today are designed to look extremely natural and fit comfortably in your mouth.
  • Implant-supported dentures involve surgically placing titanium dental implants into the jaw. The denture then connects to the implants, which keep them firmly in position all day long. A benefit of these is the implants help maintain your jawbone level, eliminating the need for frequent denture relines.
