Dr. Keahey on Dentures
Our office, we do a lot of partial and full denture work, as well as implant-supported dentures, over-denture, as well as fixed. Dentures are nice but they’re not a replacement for teeth. There are a nice aesthetic group as well as a functional piece for people.
I like doing my dentures in a multiple steps process. I usually take several trying in between, wanna make sure the color, the size, and the shape, and the functionality is the best we can for the patient. There are some limitations we can and can’t do with dentures that we work with as well.
We try to plan in the future as well, too, of any other services coming up with this. Also, implant work to add to the denture can be done while we’re working with an oral surgeon for us to go through as a combined effort. Denture work for us here, we do a lot extraction work as well as immediate denture work in the office. We do also do implant work but we do work with multiple oral surgeons.
Our laboratory, we have several we use. We have several out of state that we use as well as in state to get our work done as fast as we can. We use high-quality material for our denture work as well and I also like my potential material to be done as a hand-packed style denture instead of the usual extrusion.
