As soon as the mouth is prepared, imaging X-rays and professional impressions will be created and taken to our laboratory so that the customized dentures can be manufactured. As the permanent dentures are being created, our dentists will offer the patient interim dentures to wear. When the new dentures have been created our dentists will place them and secure them for a long lasting fit.
