About Removable Dentures
Patients may loose their teeth because of oral disease, but custom dentures can replace the smile to a natural appearance. Dentures can be tailored for the entire mouth, or just a part of the mouth, known as partial dentures. This dental apparatus, whether full or partial allow patients to regain a natural appearance and full function of the teeth. Dentures allow patients to eat, speak, and drink normally. Because this type of denture is not anchored, these dentures can be placed for the upper and lower both, and can be removed as necessary. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Greensboro in Greensboro, NC use high quality dental labs to create all of our custom dentures, using only the highest materials so they look and feel normal.
"An amazing experience from start to finish- Dr. Lam knows his stuff and he was quick! My daughter had all 4 of her impacted wisdom teeth extracted with sedation and we were in and out in an hour. The staff was wonderful the assistants Amanda, Yvonne and Alli took such good care of my daughter and Amanda took time to really review after care with us so we knew what to do after. Front desk staff to the kind assistant that wheeled her out after the surgery were so pleasant and friendly. I would highly recommend this office!"- M.R. / Google / Jul 24, 2017

"A little bit of a wait, but worth it. Had four different specialist help me, and all of them were super nice and kept me informed of everything that they were doing. First time I've actually had a dentist give me a price for something and explain pros and cons before signing me up for a procedure. I felt completely informed and in control of my own treatment. Person who did my paperwork (wish I had caught her name) was awesome, showed me how to deal with insurance forms and itemized all my expenses, even told me I could come back into the office to get help with forms if I needed it. I just picked them cause they were supposedly inexpensive according to Google, and because they were in-network for me, but turned out to be a great choice!"- K.H. / Google / Jul 10, 2017

What to Expect
The procedure to receive dentures begins with the dentist at DentalWorks - Greensboro preparing the patient's mouth to be ready, which may include a thorough exam, cleaning, and possible extractions. Once the mouth is ready, digital X-rays and physical impressions will be taken and submitted to our dental lab so that the custom dentures can be produced. During the time the real dentures are being made, our dentists will give the patient short-term dentures to use. As soon as the new dentures arrive our dentists will fit them to the patient's teeth for a long-term fit.
Dentures require special care instructions to keep them in good condition. Our dentists at DentalWorks - Greensboro will provide these instructions when the patient gets their dentures. If kept, removable dentures can last for at least a decade. Our dentists advise patients to get yearly check-ups to ensure that the wear and tear of the dentures are good.
Commonly, dental insurance pays for dentures. The amount covered depends on the patient's benefits policy, but our billing staff at DentalWorks - Greensboro will contact the patient's insurance company to gain an understanding their expenses. Please contact DentalWorks - Greensboro in Greensboro, NC to learn more about our payment options in the event insurance does not apply.
