How is a denture made?
A denture or prosthesis is always specially made to measure, because every mouth is different. The prosthesis must have such a shape that your dentures fit well with the anatomy of the jaws and the muscles of the mouth. In addition, the cosmetic end result also plays a major role in making your dentures. In this post we explain how dentures are made!
The first print
First of all it is important that an impression is made of your mouth. This is done with a standard spoon and a stiffly made print material. A plaster model is then made from this print as the principle of your new dentures.
The individual print
An individual print is then made, taking into account the shaping of the important parts of the new prosthesis, such as the final boundary and closure.
New plaster models are then made from the individual print on which a set of bite plates is made. These are made to determine the relationship between your upper and lower jaw and to decide exactly where the teeth and teeth will be placed. The external characteristics are also discussed here.
A fitting prosthesis is made on the basis of the information collected above. By fitting the fitting prosthesis, it can be checked whether the bite registration is correct, whether the prosthesis fits properly and whether the dentures also suit you in appearance. If necessary, the fitting phase can be repeated several times.
Finishing and placement
When all parties are completely satisfied with the fitting prosthesis, the dentures are converted to plastic, nicely smoothed and completely finished. After finishing a new appointment will be made to place the new dentures!
