Offering full mouth restoration and emergency dental services, Dr. Ericsson and his team will outfit your mouth with a high-quality, beautiful denture that look and feel like your natural teeth.

The process of making a denture typically takes about a month and requires several appointments before they can be fitted. During the initial appointment, Dr. Ericsson will diagnose the need for a denture. The following appointments will involve taking impressions of your mouth to ensure the proper fit of the dentures. The color and shade of your natural teeth will also be determined. The impression of your mouth and the color of the teeth will be given to a dental laboratory, where a custom-made denture will be created for your mouth.
Though your denture will be custom-made to fit your mouth, adjustments may need to be made in order to ensure that they fit properly and that they are as comfortable as possible. After your denture has been placed, Dr. Ericsson will recommend scheduling follow-up appointments. During these appointments, he will assess your mouth and your denture and will make any adjustments that may be necessary. These adjustments may include:
In many cases, adjustments and repairs can be made by Dr. Ericsson right in his office; however, if a more complicated repair or adjustment is necessary, the denture may need to be sent out to a laboratory.
