As your mouth changes, we can adjust them as needed.
Dr. Miller is proud to offer same-day denture in Dallas. Some patients choose this option when they work and need teeth in their mouth to speak clearly, or simply to not be embarrassed. For same-day dentures, Dr. Miller will take an impression of your teeth prior to your teeth being extracted. He will send this, along with X-ray images, to a lab to create your custom denture. Once we receive your dentures, we will remove your teeth and place your denture immediately in your mouth. After your jaw naturally shrinks and adjusts without teeth, you will need to come back into our office to have new denture made.
