Losing all your teeth can be difficult. Recovering from the surgery, waiting for the denture to be fabricated, hoping that the results meet expectations and resolve all problems for the patient. Once teeth are removed and denture seated, the patient has to get used to wearing it. Returning for subsequent appointments for denture adjustments are necessary for patient comfort and motivates him/her to consistently wear the prosthesis. Overtime, the denture will become loose due to bone remodeling after the teeth are extracted, and a reline is needed. The denture is sent to a dental lab, and excess space between the denture and the gums is filled in with added material to the denture. The goal is to have a prosthesis that is esthetically pleasing and functional for the patient. Good communication between patient and dentist is paramount to producing a stable denture.
