Frequently Asked Questions
What is the process of getting dentures?
Once we receive the mockup, you’ll try them on and provide any feedback if changes need to be made. Otherwise, the lab will set your dentures in acrylic and we’ll make any last adjustments at our office.
If you develop any sores, it’s important to schedule an appointment by calling our office at (616) 942-9595. We may need to adjust the fit of your dentures.
Can you sleep with dentures?
Are dentures or dental implants better?
Dentures are a more affordable solution. Within a few visits, you can have any number of teeth replaced. There’s virtually no recovery time or procedure necessary.
Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement option. They look and feel like your natural teeth. Best of all, they can last a lifetime. Dental implants are surgically affixed to your jaw, therefore there is a period of recovery following the procedure.
If your smile is missing teeth, schedule a consultation with one of our dentists by calling (616) 942-9595. During the consultation, we’ll review your oral health and provide you with information about the different procedures so you can make the decision that best fits your lifestyle.
How long do dental implants last?
In addition to maintaining a healthy oral hygiene routine, you’ll want to schedule biannual cleanings and checkups at our Grand Rapids location. During this appointment, one of our dentists will examine the health of your gums and dental implants to ensure your oral health is in excellent shape.
