"Took my son to get all of his wisdom teeth extracted. The entire staff from the reception area to the dental & surgical assistants were extremely warm, helpful & knowledgeable. One even offered my son a snack when they found out he had fasted that morning & didn't need to! He got pizza & it impressed me that they would be concerned enough to squeeze in a "last meal" for him knowing he'd be on soft foods for awhile post-procedure so that he wouldn't miss out! Dr. Alalawi was great! They offer very affordable rates and the level of care is excellent. I will be returning to this office for any future care."- L.C. / Google / Jul 14, 2018
What to Expect
A denture procedure begins with our team of dental professionals at DentalWorks - Crystal Lake getting the patient's teeth to be ready, which usually does include X-rays, an exam and cleaning, and any dental work, such as fillings. As soon as the mouth is prepared, imaging X-rays and professional impressions will be created and taken to our laboratory so that the customized dentures can be manufactured. As the permanent dentures are being created, our dentists will offer the patient interim dentures to wear. When the new dentures have been created our dentists will place them and secure them for a long lasting fit.
Professionally customized dentures require at-home care instructions so they remain in healthy condition. The dentists at DentalWorks - Crystal Lake will give these instructions when the patient receives their dentures. If taken care of, removable dentures can hold up for a very long time. Our dentists recommend that patients get ongoing exams to verify that the fit and wear and tear of the dentures are acceptable.
Usually, dental insurance takes care of a portion of the cost for dentures. The exact coverage depends on the patient's dental policy, but our office staff at DentalWorks - Crystal Lake will contact the patient's provider to understand their out-of-pocket fees.
