Hi, there. I'd be happy to help with your question. Are you wanting information about the procedure itself? Or information on how to find a dentist?

Sincerely,

Dr. Lara

Okay, no problem.

The procedure itself can be done in two ways. One is a traditional denture, and the other is an immediate denture.

Traditional denture - all teeth are extracted, and then there is a waiting period for the gums to heal completely. After the gums have healed, the final denture is made. This option is usually a little less expensive. But you have to go for a period of time with no teeth. Another benefit is that the denture usually fits better.

Immediate denture - In this procedure, the denture is made before the teeth are extracted, and it is placed into your mouth as soon as the teeth are extracted. This option is more expensive and gives you a denture that does not fit very well. The advantage is that you never have to go a day without teeth. The fit of the denture can be improved after the gums heal with something called a reline, which is an additional expense.

Finding a Dentist - There are several ways to find a great dentist. The very best is to ask around for personal recommendations. Another way is to call a dental specialist, like an oral surgeon, and ask which general dentist they recommend for dentures. The surgeon sees the dentist's work and can recommend someone who will provide you with a high-quality denture.

Does that answer your question?

Sincerely,

Dr. Lara

Do you have any reccomendations for new bern nc? I am fairly new to area

I don't have any specific recommendations because I am not located near North Carolina. I am in Texas. I would only be doing a search through websites, which I do not think is the best way to find a dentist. Since you may not know a large circle of people yet, I would recommend calling a few of the dental specialists. I have included some offices with phone numbers for you to try. Just explain to the receptionist that you are new to the area and are looking for a good GENERAL dentist, and ask who they work with. Since this is a fairly involved procedure, you may want to have a few consultations to see who you feel most comfortable with.

Does that answer your question?

Sincerely,

Dr. Lara

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
