The process of getting a removable dental appliance requires several appointments, and can take several weeks or months. Highly accurate impressions or molds and measurements are taken and used to create your custom removable dental appliance. There will be several “try-in” appointments to ensure proper color, shape, and fit. At the final appointment, your dentist will adjust and place the appliance to ensure a comfortable and natural fit.
It is normal to experience increased salivary flow, some soreness, and possible speech and chewing difficulty. This will subside as your muscles and tissues get used to the new removable dental appliance. You will be given instructions on how to care for your new appliance.
