5 Questions to Ask When Choosing Your Calgary Denture Specialist

Are you in the market for dentures? If you’re shopping around for a Calgary denturist, it can be a challenge to sift through all of the offices out there. Here are five questions to ask potential denture specialists before you make your final decision.


Do You Have Financing Plans Available?

Your oral health has some deep connections with your overall health. With that in mind, you already know that you don’t want to skimp on the quality of your dentures. So instead of focusing on the price tag, take a look at exactly how your denturist’s office will help you afford treatment. This is an important question, especially if you are on a fixed income.


What Are Your Hours?

Many of our patients have preferred hours that they can come in. Some of them require a ride from family members who work during the day and others are working themselves. It’s important that your clinic of choice is open during the hours that you can actually attend appointments.


How Soon Can I Get In for an Appointment in Case of Emergency?

If your dentures crack, you need to know that your denturist has your back, or rather your teeth, in a timely manner. Long wait times can actually be damaging. It may impede your ability to eat, and having your dentures out too long will negatively affect your gums and jaw.


Do You Continue to Take Courses or Workshops Relating to Your Craft?

Any type of medical professional should have a constantly evolving understanding of their craft. Technology changes as does our understanding of the human body. Take a moment to ask your denturist if they have continued learning after their mandatory schooling. This not only reveals their expertise, but it is a demonstration of their committed care to their patients.


Do You Build Your Dentures In-house or Are They Outsourced?

After your mouth is cast, many denturists will send the images to a lab to be processed and have your dentures built. This adds several days, if not weeks, to the denture process. Having a denture lab onsite will allow for shorter turn-around times while you are having your dentures adjusted to your mouth.
