This short explanation might be necessary in order to convince or reassure you that you only stand to benefit should you be faced with the prospect of having to wear partial dentures. The partial dentures in Yakima would usually be prepared ahead of time by the dentist’s dental technologist, usually directly after the dentist has completed his focused dental exam which would help determine his prognosis for the patient going forward.
During the dentist’s initial focused dental exam, she would be required to take impressions of the patient’s teeth and gums. These would usually be in the form of dental x rays. But in the case of preparing the patient for the placement of dental implants, it would not be unusual to expect that digital impressions be taken. In the latter case, it is usual to expect that final outcomes will be as accurate as possible.
The first-time patient does need to be convinced that the wearing of partial dentures, whether temporarily or permanently, will always be in the best interests of his oral, dental and overall health.
The first-time patient does need to be reassured that the wearing of partial dentures, whether temporarily or permanently, will be made as comfortable as possible by the dentist and his dental technologist. The taking of dental x rays and digital impressions does of course contribute towards creating this comfort in the sense that they are taking exact and accurate impressions. Both dentist and technologist would, of course, be required to leave some room for growth and shrinkage which is of course natural.
It would have been ideal for the resourceful patient to consider keeping a spare pair of dentures safely stored away in his medicine chest in order to cater for emergencies in real time.
