The steps are similar for both a partial denture and a complete denture:
Your dentist will perform a complete evaluation. All options will be discussed, and, together, you two will make the best decision for your specific situation and desires.
2. Molds of your mouth
Your dentist will take impressions of your mouth to make sure that everything will fit perfectly.
The dentist will make sure the orientation of the denture and your bite are correct.
4. Teeth Try-In
The teeth will be in wax, so any necessary corrections of the color, shape or size of the teeth will be completed. When everything is perfect, the final product will be made.
The most important day has arrived, and you will receive the beautiful finished product.
Any necessary adjustments will be made in subsequent appointments.
How implants have changed the way I make dentures:
Over twenty-five years ago, my wife and I moved to south Florida from Boston, where I attended and taught at Tufts Dental School.

The implants serve as an anchor and hold the denture in place while chewing and speaking. Quite honestly, our patients typically cannot understand how they used to cope with their old denture before implants. If you have an uncomfortable denture or you are considering a new denture, partial denture or implant denture, we would gladly provide a complimentary evaluation:
