If you’re like most people, you would probably assume that dentists make dentures. After all, they are the ones who fit them in your mouth, so it makes sense to believe that they would be the ones who make them! But here’s the thing: most dentists do not actually make dentures in their clinic, often resulting in a longer process with less accuracy.
How do dentists make dentures?
Dentists don’t usually have an on-site lab so they outsource the work to dental laboratories. This is because making dentures is a highly skilled and specialized process that requires a lot of training and experience. Because they have to send the dentures out to be made, this can often take longer and the dentures may not fit as well.
Dental technicians are the people who actually make dentures, and they do so using a process called fabrication. The fabrication process begins with taking impressions of the patient’s teeth. These impressions are used to create models of the teeth, which the technicians use to design and create the dentures. Once the dentures are made, they are then sent back to the dentist to be fitted and placed in the patient’s mouth.
How does a denturist compare?
There are a few key reasons why denturists are often considered the best option for making dentures, including having specialized training and experience in this area. Denturists are specially trained dental professionals who design, manufacture and fit dentures, meaning that they are knowledgeable about the different materials that are available and how to make sure that the dentures look natural. They also typically have more time to devote to each patient, as they do not have to juggle other types of dental procedures.
Denturists have an on-site lab where they can make dentures right in the clinic, ensuring your dentures are ready in no time! This means that denturists can effectively ensure that the dentures fit perfectly and look natural, without spending time outsourcing the work to a third-party lab.
So, the next time you need a new set of dentures, be sure to see a denturist for the best results! They’ll take care of the entire process from start to finish and make sure you’re smiling brightly in no time.
