Why Choose Us?

Why Choose Us?

Why choose us? I’ve thought a lot lately about what separates us the most from our competition. Here is a list I’ve come up with:

1.) Customer Service - We go above and beyond for our patients treating them like family. We’re open on Saturdays and even come in on Sundays to do adjustments.

2.) Quality over Quantity - Today most clinics treat patients like a number. It’s the herd them in herd them out mentality. The more patients they can see the more money they can make. The quicker they can make a product the quicker they can get paid, but what was lost was quality. We never jeopardize a products quality to meet a certain quota.

3.) Price - We manufacture and customize each of our dentures with the best materials and state of the art methods for the most affordable prices. Sure you might see a lower price somewhere else but I can guarantee you the quality of materials they’re using and their manufacturing methodology won’t compete with ours. Cutting corners and using inferior materIals only leads to a disaster later.

4.) Generations of Craftsmanship - My family has been serving the treasure valley for almost 60 years. I’m a fourth generation denturist that was taught by the most respected and qualified denturists in Idaho. My great uncle and grandfather were denture pioneers leading successful denture clinics in Idaho for sixty years. My family has prided itself on building quality dentures and exceptional service.

INSTRUCTIONS TO DENTURE PATIENTS

A. WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR NEW DENTURES

  1. You must learn to manipulate your dentures. At first you may look, speak, and eat in a way that you are unaccustomed. But with time, you should adapt very readily. Most patients require about 2 – 3 weeks to learn to work with new dentures. A few patients may require more time. But don’t be discouraged if you take longer than most.

  2. You will find that dentures are not as efficient as your natural teeth when eating. However, having dentures is better than being without teeth. When eating, start with soft foods and take small bites. Avoid biting with the front teeth because it will cause the dentures to become unstable and shift. This can lead to sore gums. It is best to cut your foods into small bites, but if you must “take a bite” use the area around the canine teeth.

  3. Your speech, as mentioned above, may sound strange initially. But with practice, perhaps reading aloud from a book or newspaper, you should be able to speak clearly in a few days.

B. ADJUSTMENTS

  1. You must return to your denturist/dentist for follow up appointments after the dentures have been inserted. In most instances, it is necessary to make minor adjustments to provide a more comfortable fit.

  2. In order for you to wear your dentures successfully, most patients will require adjustments of their attitude and habits.

  3. If soreness develops, that is considered a normal occurrence. Call your denturist/dentist for an appointment to have an adjustment. The irritation will not disappear by itself.

  4. We do not want you to “try and tough it out”. If you are unable to reach your denturist/dentist during holidays, weekends, or after hours, remove the dentures to prevent further trauma to the tissues.

C. YOUR ORAL HEALTH

  1. Nature did not intend for people to wear dentures. You must exercise care with the tissue beneath the dentures. It is recommended to rest the tissues at least eight hours a day. Most patients find it more convenient to leave the dentures out at night.

  2. The tissues that support your dentures are constantly changing. This may result in denture looseness. However, looseness can result from many causes. With time, your dentures will need either refitting or replacement. In any event, you should call your dentist for an appointment.

  3. Annual examinations of the supporting tissue for abnormalities and to assess the function and fit of the denture are important for your dental health.
