The Dentures Fabrication Process
While you are undergoing the dental implant placement process, your dentist's lab will begin to fabricate your dentures. The dentures fabrication process involves:
- Impressions: When the gums have sufficiently healed and are determined to be in healthy condition, your dentist can take impressions of your teeth using digital technology or dental putty.
- Creation of model prosthetics: Before your final dentures are crafted, your dentist may have a wax model made so he or she can check the fit and appearance of the dentures. This allows for some modifications to the design.
- Fabrication of final dentures: When you and your dentist are satisfied with the fit and look of the dentures, a dental lab technician or prosthodontist will create the prosthetic out of durable and natural looking dental materials.
- Adjustments: After your final dentures are made and attached to the dental implants, the fit or look of the dentures may be adjusted.
