Dentures Implants: Before and After

May 19, 2015 |

Dental Treatments

Dentures is one of the least invasive and time-tested treatments for teeth replacement. The cosmetic dentist will first determine whether the patient is a fantastic candidate for the dentures, and whether the treatment meets their aesthetic needs. At the time of initial consultation, the dentist may make use of dentures before and after photographs. Dr. Chris Baer provides such photographs at his office for his patients from Aurora, Parker, Centennial, Denver, Elizabeth and Franktown, CO, and other areas.

Dentures: Before and After Pictures

Before and after pictures in case of dentures refer to a set of photographs belonging to a previous patient who has been fitted with dentures successfully. The set includes pictures taken prior to the dentures treatment as well as after the treatment when the dentures have been adjusted properly. The pictures are taken discreetly and with the consent of the patient. The idea behind these photographs is to educate new patients about various aspects of the dentures treatment. A cosmetic dentist may use these pictures as a visual tool during the initial consultation when discussing the denture’s option.

Purpose and Benefits

When a patient suffers from one or more missing teeth, they may require teeth replacement both for medical as well as aesthetic reasons. Dentures are usually one of the primary treatment options available to a patient. However, when a new patient visits the office of a dentist for teeth replacement treatment, they may have only a vague idea of how dentures can help them fulfill their functional and aesthetic needs.

Some patients may need full or complete dentures, while others may only need partial dentures. In some cases, the patient may also have a choice between dentures and other replacement treatments such as dental implants or dental bridges. The aesthetic quality of dentures may also vary as per their type. In all such situations, the patient may be in a better position to make an informed choice with the help of dentures before and after photos.

Looking into the various aspects of dentures treatment, a cosmetic dentist will typically include dentures before and after pictures as a part of the initial consultation process. Patients in Aurora, Parker, Centennial, Denver, Elizabeth and Franktown, CO, and nearby areas may review these pictures at the office of Dr. Baer during their initial consultation for dentures.

Having Realistic Expectations

Many times the patients are as much concerned about the restoration of their oral aesthetics as they are with the restoration of oral function with dentures. Therefore, it is a critical part of the consultation process to ensure that the patient understands the effectiveness and expected aesthetic outcome of dentures very clearly.

Any misunderstanding of the results at the time of initial consultation may cause disappointment to the patient in the end. Even if the dentures fitting and looks may turn out to be excellent, but the patient may remain unhappy while comparing them to dental implants or bridges. Such unwanted scenarios can be avoided completely when the dentist makes use of dentures before and after pictures.
