What to Expect From Your First Denture Appointment

Getting dentures can be a challenging experience, especially if it’s your first visit to the denturist, but it doesn’t have to be stressful! Being well-prepared and knowing what to expect during your first consultation can ease your mind and make the experience more enjoyable and comfortable.

Here are some things you should know:

  1. It’s often free. Most denture clinics will offer you a free consultation to discuss whether or not you need replacement teeth.

  2. You’ll go through a quick, yet thorough, assessment. Your denturist will try to gather as much information as they can in this first appointment. You may even be required to fill out a questionnaire about your medical and dental history.

  3. There will be a short examination. You’ll undergo a short (and painless!) examination during which the denturist will examine your teeth and gums and your current dentures (if you have any.)

  4. Your denture options will be explored. Your denturist will go through all your tooth replacement options with you from traditional complete/partial dentures to flexible partials and tooth implants to help decide which choice is right for you.

  5. You’ll receive an expert recommendation. A professional and trustworthy denturist will give you their expert recommendation on which denture solution they believe best suits your unique oral needs.

  6. Cost discussion. The cost is a very important factor when deciding which denture option is right for you. Talk to your denturist about the prices associated with the different choices and whether they can send the estimate to your insurance handler.

Don’t Forget to Ask Questions!

If it’s your first time getting dentures or tooth implants, naturally you’ll have a lot of questions. The first consultation is an excellent time to voice any concerns you may have and receive expert advice on how to take care of your replacement teeth.

Here are some things you may want to consider addressing:

  • How do I take care of my dentures?
  • Do I still need regular dental check-ups if I have dentures?
  • Do I need any special care products now that I have replacement teeth?
  • How often will I need to replace my dentures?
  • What happens if my dentures don’t fit well or are uncomfortable?
  • Do I need to use denture adhesive creams?
  • What are the advantages of opting for tooth implants instead of dentures?
  • Will my food taste differently with dentures?
  • Will I be able to speak normally with dentures?
