Finding a dentist can be an overwhelming experience, as there are many dentists practicing at any given time. However, finding one with a specialization in dentures can be a bit trickier. If you have a dentist currently, you can ask them for recommendations or a referral to a professional for denture treatment. If you don’t have a dentist, you can ask friends and family for recommendations, or perform an online search.
With so much information available at our fingertips, you should be able to find not just dentists who can do dentures, but also see star ratings and read reviews through the dental office’s website. It is important to find a dentist with the necessary training and experience, who can provide real life examples of the patients they have treated for dentures. In Fresno, CA, patients have the option of seeking out treatment from Dr. Prabhdeep K Gill, DDS who has several years of experience in many facets of dental treatment, including dentures.
The ultimate goal of any denture treatment is to provide patients with a full mouth of natural-looking, functional teeth that blend right in with the rest of the teeth. A denture can be used for a single tooth, a few teeth, or a full arch of teeth, depending on the individual.
Patients interested in dentures should book an initial consultation with a dentist that specializes in dentures, such as Dr. Prabhdeep K Gill, DDS. The dentist will walk you through the full treatment, including timelines, procedures, and what you can expect at each phase. In order to build the denture, an impression of your mouth will need to be done so that your denture can be built just for you. From there, you will need to have any teeth pulled that are being replaced by the denture and then the denture itself placed and fitted. The order of the steps and the time between steps will be dependent on the condition of the tooth or teeth being replaced, as well as the dental office itself. Your dentist can confirm the specifics of your plan prior to the start of your treatment.
Dentures are becoming more common as a treatment option for people who are looking to replace a tooth or multiple teeth. Unlike traditional bridges, dentures provide a more secure fit and have the option of being removable or permanent. With dentures, there is no limit to the number of teeth that can be replaced with a denture, and depending on the denture being used, all of the affected teeth can be pulled in the same appointment.
Your dentist or denture specialist can walk you through your unique treatment plan, from the initial consultation, through the procedure itself, and then to your final finished result. Dentures can be used to replace a single tooth, or they can be used to replace a full arch of teeth. Each person’s needs will be different, as will their treatment plan. For Dr. Prabhdeep K Gill, DDS, the goal is to get patients the results they want, in an easy, efficient manner so that patients can regain their confidence with their smile.
For most people needing dentures, particularly in the case of needing to have a tooth pulled in order for the denture to be placed, they don’t want to have a gap in their teeth that calls out they are missing a tooth. With this in mind, dentists will do impressions of your mouth to build out the denture that is designed specifically for you.
Dr. Gill will determine how best to remove an existing tooth and replace it with a denture, ideally within the same day. For most people this is possible, however, Dr. Gill will be able to provide you with any necessary information or recommendations on how to do this. Once you have your new dentures, Dr. Gill will want to see you back for additional check-ins to ensure that the dentures are comfortable and functioning properly.
In this age of online access, patients now have the ability to easily book an appointment through Dr. Prabhdeep K Gill’s website for a wide range of dental procedures, including dentures. Under the Appointments tab, prospective patients will be taken to an online appointment request form, in which they will choose the service they are interested in, and then pick the date and time that works best for them.
