i would like to know how long the process takes to make a set of false teeth as i am getting my teeth taken out
How long does it take to make a set of false teeth?
instantly (or as long as it takes you to find a pair that fits) if you turn up to the lost property section of the old folks home... hehehhe i%26#039;m terrible sorry.
The time frame depends on how much you can squash the appointments together.
Typically you will have 5 appointments.
1. impressions to get a model of your jaws.
2. more accurate impressions to make your dentures have a good suction.
3. Measuring your bite (where your jaws should close to) and working out where your teeth should go and choosing some teeth that match you.
4. Trying in a preview denture made of wax to make sure they fit properly and look ok.
5. Insert the denture.... sounds like you%26#039;ll need teeth taken out at some point. Some dentists will take them out at this stage. Some will take them out before they start and wait a while for your bone to heal.
So It is possible to have the first 2 in the first day, the 3rd and 4th in the 2nd day and have the denture by the 3rd if your dentist isn%26#039;t booked out and his denture technicians are quick(extremely quick, there is alot to do inbetween those appointments by the denture technician). There are ways of doing it quicker but i guess thats a starting point... It wouldn%26#039;t be unusual for the whole process to take a few weeks if you spread out the appointments to suit the times you are available and appointments are available to you. :)
Reply:I like this question! I want to know also
Reply:3-4 days.... if your dentist has a good lab...faster
Reply:There is a place here in Pawtucket Rhode Island that will give you temp the day they pull your teeth. So there may be other places that do that also.
Reply:about a couple of weeks.....Have to get the impressions and than they send them away and thats when they are made....Not to long, But they would like your mouth to behealed so you can get a good impression so the plate will fit good....Good Luck
Reply:depends on what you want the out of I could carve you a pair from wood in about an hour or 2, but if ur looking for dentures that a different storie they take days to mould the plate %26amp; grind the enamels %26amp; shape the plate
Reply:It took a week for me, then they tried it on me..before they did the final enamel coat, and add realistic stains.
Reply:it depends on which type u choose,if it is ceramic it will take 3 days
Reply:i second the above. 5 appointments is the way to go. if you want cheaper and quicker it is possible but you start compromising quality. stay away from the 1800dentures and affordable dentures. you get what you pay for!
Reply:a good quality denture with all proper precautions taken will take about 3 weeks to be made and fitted perfectly and they will last longer if you give the laboratory which does a good job......time!
quacks and cheap dentists can do it in 10 days or evcen fasster
Reply:Don%26#039;t listen to the guy about affordable dentures. They are a good place. Thats all they do all day everyday is make dentures. I went there and i am very happy with what i have. It took them about 5 hours to make them. I went in for impressions in the morning and had them that afternoon, they have a lab on site so they don%26#039;t have to go through the 3-5 day bs that dentists who don%26#039;t know what they are doing go through. Its your choice but the dentist i went to wanted to charge me about 8 grand for a set of immediate dentures and then my final set. I said thanks but no thanks. I went to affordable dentures, got the new denture wearers package and paid $1000 for both sets. They are just as good as what your going to get from a dentist.
