Custom Dentures: An Exciting Commitment to Long-term Oral Health
Tooth loss can affect the aesthetics of your smile, as well as impact your oral and overall health. Missing teeth can lead to gum recession, jawbone atrophy, changes in your facial structure, and malnutrition. With the advancement of high-quality materials and customized treatment planning, dentures are now a more natural-looking and functional solution than ever before. Depending on your needs, budget, and desired outcomes, Dr. Chan Wilkhu and Dr. Mark Moffitt can provide traditional or implant-supported dentures at their office in Merritt Island, FL. For patients who own dentures that are in good condition, we can help you transition into implant-supported prosthetics for superior functionality and aesthetics.
The Treatment Process
Custom dentures are an exciting commitment to your long-term oral health. Although the extent of your treatment will depend on the condition of your smile, the type of dentures you are receiving, and the number of adjustments needed, your treatment will generally consist of several appointments.
- Preparatory Procedures
- To receive dentures, your gums and remaining teeth should be in good overall health. We can provide comprehensive dentistry services to help you establish a healthy foundation for your dentures.
- Dental Implants
- For patients who want added stability and security, we can place dental implants approximately four to six months prior to placing your permanent dentures.
- Detailed Impressions
- Our team will take detailed impressions of your smile to create custom dentures that fit comfortably and look natural.
- Laboratory Fabrication
- Depending on your needs, budget, and goals, your dentures will be created using porcelain or acrylic.
- Final Fitting
- Once your dentures are ready, you will return for your final fitting. We will ensure that the fit, function, and look meets your expectations.
What Sets Us Apart
For the past decade, Dr. Chan Wilkhu and Dr. Mark Moffitt have worked with a trusted local lab to create lifelike, high-quality dentures. We do not provide immediate dentures because we believe that personalized care and time are required to provide the most aesthetic, long-lasting results.
With the help of our trusted lab, we can ensure efficiency and accuracy during your visit to help you enjoy your results faster.
Rather than sending your impressions and adjustments to the lab, we make the process quicker and more accurate by bringing the lab to our office. This increases the efficiency of your treatment and allows us to provide restorations that closely match the shade of your existing smile, which our patients love.
In addition to creating custom dentures to suit your unique needs, we can convert or repair your existing dentures.
Converting Your Dentures
After learning about the benefits of dental implants, you may decide you are interested in converting your existing prosthetics into implant-retained restorations. If your dentures are in good condition and you are a good candidate for dental implants, we may be able to convert your existing dentures into an implant-supported restoration.
Although dentures should typically last about ten years before needing replacement, accidents do happen. Regardless of how careful you are, dentures can become damaged if you accidentally drop them. Our staff understands how troublesome daily life can be without properly working dentures. For most cases, we can provide same-day denture repair.
