Is it painful to get dentures? What should I expect?
The process of getting dentures fitted is completely pain-free. It involves us taking accurate impressions of your mouth using dental putty and then getting dentures made for you that will fit your gums.
Depending on your circumstances, we may recommend extracting additional teeth as part of fitting your dentures. This may be due to a variety of reasons and not an option we take lightly. During your consultation, we will go through all your options to make sure you make an informed decision.
If further extractions are required, the procedure itself will typically be pain-free. You may experience some discomfort after the procedure as your gums heal.
What are Dentures?
Dentures are artificial teeth and gums that are a cost-effective way to replace lost teeth. If you have missing teeth, either from injury or extraction, dentures are a great way to restore your smile and ability to eat. Getting dentures can be quite a complex process. Dentures that don’t fit properly can cause discomfort and over time cause you issues with your gums. It may also cost you more in the long run.
