The dentures used at Dr. Milan’s office are of the highest quality and allow his patients the utmost in comfort and confidence.
During your appointment, Dr. Milan will assess your specific needs. If you have severely decayed teeth, they may need to be extracted. Then, a mold will be taken of your teeth, gums and mouth roof. This mold is then taken to a lab where your dentures are created. Once complete, you will see Dr. Milan again for the fitting of your dentures.
Much like natural teeth, dentures should be brushed and cleaned every day. And even if your teeth have been removed, you should take care to thoroughly brush your gums daily. When you aren’t wearing your dentures, they should soak in water. And though an adjustment period is expected, Dr. Milan is pleased to know that most of his patients adjust quickly to their new dentures and begin experiencing a better quality of life — and more confidence — immediately.
