Dentures are a type of custom-made prosthetic device used to replace missing teeth and can be used to restore the function and appearance of a patient’s smile. They are a popular choice for people in Dubai who are missing teeth due to age, injury, or disease.
It is important to note that getting dentures could take from an hour to 6 months. Depending on your health and daily routine (bad habits, diet…), there will be a few factors that you might want to consider and a few things you need to know before starting the process.
In this blog, we will discuss what to expect and how to prepare for getting dentures.
What to Expect When Getting Dentures in Dubai
When you visit our dentistry for your initial consultation, our dentist will perform a thorough examination of your mouth and take X-rays to determine the best course of action. Depending on the condition of your teeth and gums, you may need to have some teeth extracted before getting dentures.
Once our dentist has determined that you are a good candidate for dentures, they will take impressions of your mouth to create a model for the dentures. This model will be used to create a custom-fit set of dentures that are designed to look and feel natural.
Our dentist will also discuss the different types of dentures available and help you decide which one is best for you. There are two main types of dentures: full dentures and partial dentures. Full dentures are used to replace all of the teeth in your upper or lower jaw, while partial dentures are used to replace a few missing teeth.
Once you’ve decided which type you would like, you will be presented with the different materials available and the dentist will help you decide which material is best for you. The most common materials used to make dentures are acrylic and metal. Acrylic dentures are more affordable and comfortable, while metal dentures are more durable and long-lasting.
As soon as your dentures have been made, our dentist will fit them and make any necessary adjustments. After the fitting, you may need to come in for a few follow-up appointments to make sure the dentures fit properly and feel comfortable.
How to Prepare for Getting Dentures in Dubai
Before getting dentures, it is important to prepare for the process. Here are some tips to help you get ready for your appointment:
• Schedule a dental exam: Make sure to schedule an appointment with our dentist for an exam and an X-ray session before getting dentures. This will help our dentist determine the best course of action for your treatment.
• Make sure your gums are healthy: If you have a gum disease, it is important to get it treated before getting dentures. This will help ensure that your dentures fit properly and are comfortable.
• Eat a healthy diet: Eating a balanced diet that includes plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains will help keep your gums healthy and make it easier for our dentist to take impressions of your mouth.
• Quit smoking: Smoking can cause gum disease and make it more difficult for our dentist to take impressions of your mouth. If you smoke, it is important to quit before getting dentures.
