Family First Dentistry Explains the 3 Steps to Getting Dentures, Anchorage, Alaska

As people age, plaque and bacteria gradually wear down their teeth and gums. When your dentist can no longer repair your teeth, they will likely recommend that you consider getting dentures. Some people need a full set of dentures, while others just require a partial set. If you’re considering dentures, Family First Dentistry can help. Serving families in Anchorage, AK, these dental care professionals offer services ranging from dentures to teeth whitening. 

Here, they'll explain the three-step process involved in getting dentures:

  • Step One: The first step to getting dentures is scheduling an initial consultation. At the consultation, your dentist will assess your teeth and discuss your options. Because Family First Dentistry offers flexible financial plans, you will be able to pick the best option for your oral health, not for your wallet.
  • Step Two: Before you get your dentures, your dentist may decide that you need to have teeth extracted to ensure the best possible results. After your teeth have been removed, it’s important that you follow all of your dentist's instructions to ensure that your gums heal properly before your dentures are fitted. Your dentist will also take final impressions of your mouth in order to craft custom, comfortable dentures just for you.dentures
  • Step Three: Once your mouth is ready for dentures, you'll go into the dentist's office for the final fitting. Wearing dentures might feel strange at first, but it shouldn’t feel uncomfortable. If anything hurts, tell your dentist, and they'll make the necessary adjustments.

Getting dentures is a process, but it’s one that will make your daily life much better. At Family First Dentistry in Anchorage, the professional staff can take care of the needs of every member of the family, whether you need dental implants or a regular checkup.
