Some partially removable dentures When it comes to dental health, it is easy to focus on the big picture, like brushing your teeth and taking care of your gums. However, because oral health is so important, it is also essential to take the time to ensure that all of your teeth are healthy and working properly. This includes making sure that any removable dental appliances you wear fit properly in your mouth and do not cause you pain or discomfort while they are in use. Fortunately, thanks to modern dentistry, this is not hard simply because dentists can use special equipment to ensure devices like dentures fit you properly. Robert H. Peterson DDS is dedicated to ensuring that you get well-fitting dentures.

What Are Dentures?

There are two types of dentures: complete and partial dentures. A complete or full denture is usually used to replace an entire set of your teeth, while a partial is used to replace a few missing teeth. They are usually custom-made to ensure it fits you properly and do not frequently move whenever you talk or eat. It is also important to understand that you will have the few teeth left in your mouth removed whenever you choose to get a full denture.

How Does My Dentist Ensure It Is Fitting My Mouth Well?

Sometimes people are weary of wearing dentures because they are worried that they may loosen as they talk or eat. However, if they are correctly fitted, you will not experience this situation. Your dentist will ensure your dentures fit properly by taking an impression of your mouth. The impression is then sent to the laboratory, and with good craftsmanship, your denture is perfectly created to fit you comfortably and firmly. When taking the impression of your mouth, the dentist will use special tools to take the right measurements to manufacture a suitable denture. Adjustments can always be made as needed after you receive you dentures.


With good measurement, you can have dentures fitted in the upper and lower jaw. Your dentist will first begin by examining your mouth to see if you have gum issues or any other dental problem. The dentist will then determine whether you need a complete or partial denture. Impression of your mouth will be taken, manufactured, and you will have it fitted either permanently or temporarily on your final visit. The procedure is painless, and there is no need for local anesthesia unless you have other oral issues that need to be addressed first.
