Secret tips to make quality dentures or flippers.
Live meeting with lab: When we schedule patients for denture impressions, our lab is stand-by as remote meeting so they confirm impressions, and stone model quality on live. We make sure no bubbles or defects are made on the impression and also check if the patient has any compromised undercut due to unideal position of the teeth or gum recession. Different techniques have to be approached for this condition.
Taking quality impressions: Taking impressions also requires many secret techniques. For example, we ask patients to smile, retract lips in all directions, move around tongues, asking patients to say “ah” to capture all ligaments and muscles while taking an impression. If these are not captured accurately the denture will not fit properly and will be uncomfortable. Also we customize the trays to fit better in the patient mouth.
Sophisticated customer care: After delivery of dentures, we always arrange 2 weeks post-op meetings and adjust any areas needed. Good customer service makes for a better fitting denture. Imagine you bought a new pair of shoes. No matter how well it’s designed, sometimes it needs a few weeks to get used to. Also patients need to wear the denture and give us feedback so we can target those area to improve the fit.

Alternative or upgraded option for dentures: Dentures are supported by surviving teeth and the gums. However, sometimes a patient feels that their denture is loose or uncomfortable if the condition of the supporting teeth is compromised such as loose or mobile teeth. Or, Denture may feel uncomfortable because they are bulkier than natural teeth. Especially full upper dentures for edentulous patients cover the palate area which makes it more difficult for patients to eat and speak. Wearing denture overtime may create gum recessions as well. Implant over dentures can provide extra support and make dentures less bulky and therefore much more comfortable.
