Consultation

The first step to dentures is the consultation phase. It is the step in which the doctor will look at your teeth, your mouth’s health, and the overall state of your gums and your facial bones. That will help your doctor better determine what sort of dentures are going to work best for you. There are several different types, including full plate, partial plate, and soft plate dentures. All of these fit different mouth types and situations. Consultation often requires that x-rays be taken of your mouth and that a thorough exam be done.

Preparation

The next step is to prep the mouth. That means that if there are teeth that need extracting, they will be. If there are many teeth to be removed, there will be a longer healing time than if there is only one or two or none. If teeth are extracted, the mouth will have to heal entirely before dentures can be fitted. After the mouth has been prepped, your dentist will take an impression of your mouth to design the denture plate to fit as snugly and comfortably as possible.

Creation and Fitting

Some dental offices can make dentures in-house, while others have to send them to an outside lab. No matter what the case, the next step is that the dentures must be made. After the dentures are made, the patient will be brought back into the office to fit the dentures properly. It is an arduous process, but it is entirely worth it.

 - 5 Star Rating Review I have gone to Kingsgate Dental for about two years now, and every experience has been excellent. Dr. Kelley is very knowledgeable and very thorough with her analysis of the issues that I have faced with my teeth. The staff is polite and always happy to answer any questions that I have and give me pointers to improve my dental hygiene. I will continue to go to Kingsgate Dental/Dr Kelley for years to come.

 - 5 Star Rating Review By Kathy W Dr. Kelley and her staff are a treasure. State of the art equipment, As a past Dental Administrator for a very large practice in Lynnwood, am soo happy to know that Dr. Kelley, her hygenists who have been there for over 20 years, are bar none the most indepth and through a cleaning as you would ever find. I have never felt more then a slight prick when getting novocaine. Between numbing the gum and gentle procedure they also offer nitroux, for us real scaredy cats. Music, neck pillows and blankets all make the experience truly enjoyable. I had gone too many years neglecting my teeth and found through Tammy, my hygenist and Dr. Kelley they were able to put together a plan to save the teeth they could and design partials for the ones I could not afford to save. I am a small business owner with no insurance and yet they came up with a plan that I am so happy with. I am without any infection, so much healthier and the partials Dr. Kelley designed are like a second skin. From Jackie and MaryAnn at the front desk to the assistants, hygenists and Dr. Kelley you will be in professional and caring hands. I recommend to all my family and friends.
