Receiving Your Custom Dentures

Initial Consultation

The denture process begins with an initial consultation with your Davie dentist. During this appointment, your dentist will assess your oral health, review your medical history, and take impressions of your mouth. Your initial consultation is a great time to ask any questions or voice any concerns you may have. 


Your dentures will be custom-made to fit your unique mouth and match the appearance of your natural teeth. This customization ensures a comfortable fit and a natural-looking smile.

Denture Fitting

Once your dentures are ready, you’ll return to the dentist’s office for a fitting. Dr. Abbo will make any necessary adjustments to ensure your dentures fit securely and comfortably. He’ll provide instructions on caring for your dentures and maintaining good oral hygiene while wearing them.

Follow-Up Appointments

Attend follow-up appointments as recommended by your dentist. These appointments allow your dentist to make further adjustments and ensure the long-term success of your dentures.

Caring for Dentures

Proper care is essential to keep your dentures in excellent condition and extend their lifespan. Here’s how to care for your dentures:

  • Daily Cleaning: Remove your dentures and clean them daily using a soft-bristled toothbrush and denture cleaner. This helps remove food particles, plaque, and stains.
  • Soaking: Soak your dentures in a denture-cleaning solution or plain water at night. This keeps them moist and helps prevent them from drying out.
  • Rinsing: After eating, rinse your dentures with cold water to remove any remaining food debris.
  • Handle with Care: Handle your dentures carefully to avoid dropping them or causing damage. It’s a good practice to place a towel or water in the sink when cleaning your dentures to prevent breakage if they fall.
  • Maintain Good Oral Hygiene: Even with dentures, it’s wise to maintain good oral hygiene. Brush your gums, tongue, and the roof of your mouth with a soft toothbrush to remove bacteria and stimulate circulation.
  • Regular Check-Ups: Visit your dentist for regular check-ups. They will inspect your dentures and oral health, making any necessary adjustments or repairs.
