Dentures An Overview
Dentures are the traditional method for replacing a full arch or set of missing teeth. Modern dentures offer a more natural looking design with a comfortable and secure fit. Dentures are custom designed to complement the patient’s facial aesthetics.
Dr. Suman Chibb helps patients restore their smiles with custom designed dentures. Dr. Chibb provides patients with a one-on-one consultation and oral health exam. The oral health and goals of the individual patient will be considered when determining the best course of treatment for replacing missing teeth. Dr. Chibb will help patients consider the benefits of each treatment option so that they are able to make informed decisions about their oral health.
Dr. Chibb has many years of experience and education in restorative dentistry. Focusing on the function and fit, Dr. Chibb designs dentures for patients that look and feel like natural teeth. Some patients may qualify for a dental implant secured denture. Patients who would like to explore the option of a dental implant secured denture may be referred to Dr. Roham Rafat.
Dentures What to Expect
The denture procedure is a multi-step procedure. Patients may visit our Owings Mills dentist office 2-3 times to receive their denture. Once the denture is designed and fit, patients enjoy a highly functional and beautiful smile for many years to come.
Dr. Chibb will take precise molds of the patient’s mouth. The molds are used to create a type of “blue-print” that will be used to design the denture. Custom fit dentures fit securely in the patient’s mouth and will help to reduce the risk of slippage. Dentures are made from high-quality professional grade resin. The color, shape, and size of the denture can be customized to the patient’s preference.
A dental lab will fabricate the denture to Dr. Chibb’s specifications. In about 2-3 weeks the denture will be shipped back to our Owings Mills dentist office. Patients will return to our office for a final fit.
If patients opt for a dental implant secured denture, Dr. Chibb will coordinate with Dr. Roham Rafat for the surgical placement of the dental implants. Dental implants provide added stability and long-term oral heal benefits.
