The process for acquiring a pair of dentures can be a daunting task, emotionally, physically and financially. Part of the process of ageing is often the realisation that our bodies are going to change – perhaps one of the most difficult parts of this process is when that change occurs in our mouths. Our pearly whites aren’t quite so pearly anymore, perhaps other health issues such as diabetes have caused tooth decay and so now, we need to turn to dental veneers as a way to maintain our dental health.
This realisation will likely mean a visit to a denture clinic, after an initial consultation with a Camden dentist and a dental hygienist, to find out if dentures are the right way to go for you and your teeth.
Tooth loss can occur in a variety of ways and dental veneers are a great option for anyone who’s experienced tooth loss for any reason. Whether you’ve been in an accident and have needed to seek an emergency dentist, or the tooth loss is a natural progression of age and/or disease. No matter why you’ve come to need dentures, the process can seem daunting. Here is our step-by-step guide to help you deal with the road ahead by choosing the best denture clinic for you.
Your Search Begins
After your visit to a dentist and/or dental hygienist, they may recommend you visit a denture clinic to get the process started. You should first ask your dentist if they have a recommendation. If so, then it’s a safe bet to proceed with their recommendation.
If not, then it’s time to search for your own denture clinic. You should first look to see which denture clinics near you have good reviews from the most people. Do they have a good web presence that is easy to navigate, clear contact instructions and so on. Call first to set up an appointment – is the communication between you and the staff clear? If so, then proceed to the next step – the appointment.
Make sure that you choose a clinic that is within navigable distance to you. And easy to reach in the event of an emergency.
Your First Appointment
One of the first things you should do upon your initial appointment is to ensure that the clinic looks professionally run and is clean! Given that you’re dealing with your dental health, the cleanliness of the denture clinic cannot be understated.
Clear, Comforting Communication
The staff, from the receptionist to the dental hygienist to the dentist and/or dental surgeon or denture specialist themselves should be clear in their communication. They should be sympathetic and concise, whilst offering clear answers to any questions you may have.
Provide Adequate Services
Not all denture clinics offer the same services, and the last thing you want to do is to go running around several different ones to get your dentures done. Make sure that the clinic you choose will have all of the services you require. The less you have to do in multiple places, the better. Make sure that the denture clinic of your choosing has good technology as well, as older technology can lead to poorer results.
The cost of dental implants is usually very high – it varies depending on the type of implant, the number of teeth required for the denture, etc. However, in general, costs are cost-prohibitive for a lump-sum payment. If this is the case for you, make sure that the denture clinic of your choosing offers Afterpay dental – this allows you to make monthly instalments against your final bill.
