At DCOF, we pride ourselves on same day treatment whenever it's possible. With an 8 or 9 am appointment, our ability to produce a same day denture is maximized, but is not guaranteed. Our ultimate goal is to make a well fitting, highly functioning denture that looks great, but creating quality dentures is an extremely custom process. Our DCOF team will work with you to get the results you desire, but sometimes this may result in a denture not being ready in the same day. We want our patients to love their smiles and will do our best to meet and exceed your expectations!
If you’ve never had a denture or partial before, it may feel awkward until you become accustomed to it. It will take time to adjust to your new prosthetic. Your muscles will have to retrain themselves to talk and eat. Additionally, your bite may feel different. Your prosthetic may feel too large initially, and some patients say they feel as if their lips are being “pushed forward” as well. These are all very common things your Florence dentist hears every day from our patients, so don’t worry.
Our Dental Team Will Help Adjust Your Dentures in Florence
You may also have some discomfort until your mouth becomes accustomed to the dentures in Florence. This is a normal part of the healing process, and our dentists in Florence can address any problem areas that persist during your adjustment appointments.

A wax try in is the most important step in the denture process. After our lab team at Dental Center of Florence places your selected teeth in wax, the doctor will do the try in. This step allows both you and the doctor to see the cosmetic look as well as to check your bite before the final process. The wax try in does not address the fit or feel of the denture; this will be addressed in the final seat.
You Control The Full Or Partial Denture Process
In some cases, the doctor or patient may want changes made which could include the way the teeth come together, the position of the teeth, the size, midline, etc. The denture process in Florence does not move forward until the patient and doctor approve the bite and cosmetics together.

When teeth are missing, specifically tooth roots, your jawbone deteriorates and shrinks over time. This means that dentures can fit snuggly for the first years, but they will need replacement in the future.
How long your denture fits depend on changes to your jawbone and the wear associated with chewing and speaking.
During the first years, your dentist in Florence may suggest a reline, which means adding material or relining to restore the snug fit. Using denture adhesives for added support is also a good option.
How Do Same Day Dentures Work at Dental Center of Florence?
Our same-day dentures at Dental Center of Florence are built to last, to restore your smile, and to function predictably. However, you will need to replace your denture eventually.
Additionally, if you notice cracks or damage to your denture, it’s essential to contact our dental office. Bacteria can collect in these cracks and leave you vulnerable to infections and even gum disease.
It’s also important to remember that replacement teeth do not protect you from gum disease. Even if you wear dentures, it is still important to visit your Florence dentist regularly.
