This is pretty close to how we do procedures of dentures at our Denture Clinic. A few things in this ad maybe be different. I can't believe how much dentists are against this in the USA....I wonder if it's really about the loss of profit that would go in their pocket. Here is the link if you're interested....http://www.1800dentist.com/denturists/
Obviously written by a dentist. Denturist are specialist. If you went to your dentist and needed a tooth extracted, you had a choice between your dentist who does general dentistry or an oral surgeon who specializes in tooth extraction who would you choose? Same goes for a denturist. Denturist are specifically trained to fit, construct, insert and maintain dentures. Going to a denturist is usually cheaper then your dentist as well since denturist do everything from impressions to finishing the denture. No outside lab is involved unless it is a cast partial. Also denturist are trained to recognize abnormalities in the oral cavity. Although denturist are not allow to diagnose they can recognize abnormalities and refer to either your dentist or doctor. Shallow minded thinking is keeping this profession out of the remaining states
YES!!! WE NEED THESE PROFESSIONALS IN THE USA!!! I did a whole lot of investigating and it was very very difficult. I picked my dentist for the product they offered. I looked all over for denturists and all I could find was dentists. Quite ridiculous seeing as I know a whole lot of people that need this. If some of your denturists started servicing over here.... they could make a buck. I was even looking into mail order because i am sorry..... I can do a better job than what my dentist did and I would pay a lot less.
Sounds kinda like the time about 20 years ago when I broke a crown off at the gum line. My regular dentist wanted me to see a specialist to have the silvertip root canal removed, get a post and core build up, a new crown, and come back so he could put the crown on. I thought "If someone else did all that I could put it on!" My ex-wife suggested I see her dentist. She said He is just a DDS but he has taken a lot of extra training. He removed the silver tip, did the post and core, cleaned the crown out and used it as a mold for the post and core. He said if it came loose he would glue it back in for me. That tooth was still going strong when I got my dentures last December! Probably the strongest tooth I had, and at a HUGE savings.
