Questions to Ask Before Getting Dentures

You may be wondering if dentures are right for you. You’re trying to decide if full dentures or partial dentures are the best denture solution. And if you’re like most people, you probably have some questions and anxieties about the whole process of getting dentures. The good news is that you don’t need to try to figure out all the answers on your own – your denture service clinic can answer all of your questions and put your mind at ease before you begin the process.

Talk to Your Professional Denture Service Clinic

Your denture professional is available to help make you feel comfortable, and so are we. Here are questions to ask your denturist before taking the plunge – so you have all the information you need before you start the denture treatment process.

Should I get full dentures, partial dentures, or implant dentures?  There are multiple types of dentures available, and you need to make sure you choose the correct ones for your circumstances. This is why you need the professional consultation of a denturist to help recommend the right dentures for you.

What will happen to my healthy teeth if I don’t get dentures? Sometimes, if you don’t replace your missing teeth, it can have negative consequences on your physical health and can even affect the health of your remaining teeth.

Do I need any extractions or dental work before I can start the process of getting dentures? Sometimes you will need dental work done before you can get dentures. Make sure you get a full explanation of everything you need done so you are prepared. Talk to your denture professional if you have anxiety or concerns about dental work and they can take steps to ease your fears and make you more comfortable about the procedure.

Is it possible to get same day dentures? Sometimes it’s possible to get same-day dentures so you don’t have to live without teeth. Ask your provider about this, or if flexible partial dentures may be a temporary option while you wait for your permanent dentures to be installed.

Do you offer full denture services? You want a denture service clinic that can offer a full array of services including denture repair and denture reline. Ask to make sure they can provide full services to meet all of your denture needs throughout the years.

How much will my dentures cost? Do you have flexible payment plans? Make sure you are aware of the costs associated with your dentures up-front. If you have insurance, they may pay for the costs – or at least some of the initial dental work. If insurance doesn’t cover the cost of your dentures, ask about flexible payment plans to help make the cost affordable to you.
