A Unique Approach To Denture Design
Dr. Lordo is among only 10% of dentists in the country who are trained by The Dawson Academy to practice the concept of Compete Care Dentistry. Why does that matter? This approach to dentistry requires an understanding of every structural part of the chewing system, including jaw joints, facial and temporal muscles, and teeth—a perfect basis for dentures design and function
What to Expect
Modern dentures typically require a few appointments to ensure a proper, high-performing fit. All steps of the process are usually completed right in our Worthington office.
During an initial consultation, we will determine if dentures are the best option for your dental needs or goals. We may capture digital x-rays or images to facilitate our discussions.
Often, some remaining teeth need to be removed to accommodate denture placement. During this appointment, we’ll comfortably sedate you and remove the existing teeth and often times place a healing denture.
Once the removal sites have healed, we will place the new dentures or reline the healing dentures. We will take time to ensure their proper fit, and train you on how to care for your new appliance.
