"Dr.
is very good. We had various procedures with him from normal hygienist. Everything worked out beautifully and he's a very concerned" dentist. He's following up outreach procedure and he does wonderful work. His price is also reasonable. I will continue to go to him and recommend him to my family. He has a staff of 2 assistants who are at a level above hygienist. They can assist with procedures. He has a service person that answers the phone and confirms appointments. It's just a very pleasant office.

"My experience was wonderful and it could not have been better. He’s very educated and knowledgeable in his field. It was just wonderful. I couldn’t" have asked for a better dentist. I’ve never been to anyone like him. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable also. I would recommend him to whoever needs dentures or just a dentist. I will by all means use him again in the future.

Prosthodontics/dentures

Missing, discolored, chipped or broken teeth can seriously affect your smile, dental health and self-confidence. A dentist specializing in prosthodontics can restore or replace your missing teeth.

If you need false teeth, a denturist or prosthodontist should be able to fit you with comfortable and affordable dentures to match your needs and budget.

If you are missing several teeth, or considering a full or partial denture, your best option is implant supported dentures, says Petrusha. (Photo by Katie Jacewicz)

Avoid a gap-toothed smile with modern dental implants. Better than bridges or dentures, implants can replace a lost adult tooth both in fashion and function.

Crowns are considered a common dental procedure. Gathering information about this treatment option prior to visiting a dentist may empower a consumer to make the best decision for their own oral health.

 I am familiar witht he ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers across the country, in particluar, the one in Overland Park, KS.  They are a "one stop" implant center.  The doctors there are at the top of their field, and an advantage is that you have all of the specialists that will be working with you in the same place.  That would have to make communication easier between doctors.  They usually offer seminars for patients and I think, offer free consultations, which is always worthwhile.

  If you chose to go the other way, some Prosthodontists will place and restore the implants themselves. In other cases, an Oral Surgeon or Periodontist will place the implant and a Prosthodontist or General Dentist restores it.   Fees can vary quite a bit from office to office and with the different options for restorative materials.  Some offer free consultations, for others, they charge a fee that might be applied to any future treatment in some cases.

The first step is to schedule a few consultations with different providers, which it sounds like you've already done.

The most important factors when deciding which practitioner to work with:
:
.1.  You should feel comfortable asking your doctor any questions so that you have a good understanding of the procedure itself, healing time and long-terem outcome, and possible complications.  Write down a list of questions and take them with you to the consultation.

2.  Ask about the experience of the practitioner. How many similiar procedures have they completed?  Have they had any major complications with any cases?  Ask to see photos if possible.

3..Figure out if it works out better for your schedule, to go to a "one stop" provider or to separate providers for the placement and the restoration of the implants.

4. Follow your instincts.  If you feel rushed, didn't get direct answers to your questions, didn't communicate well or had any other negative feelings, this probably isn't the doctor for you.

5. Consider insurance coverage and financing options.  If your dental plan covers implants and it is important to you to use a preferred provider, you will want to check your list.  Many times, insurance does not cover implants, or at least not all of the steps.  You may want to inquire about payment and financing options.

I hope this at least helps you feel a little less confused and a little more directed. Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can be of further help.

As a  Dentist, I am sorry to hear about your denture nightmare and I know how frustrating that can be.  I am surprised that your doctor wasn't willing to work with you on some type of solution.  A few options would be either remaking the dentures once more,  or offering to return some of the money and have you return the dentures.   Unfortunately, the doctor has put in a lot of their time and lab expenses, but the patient also  has time and money invested.  You might try sending a letter re-explaining the problems you hand and offering an acceptible and fair solution.  Be sure to keep a copy of it and any correspondence you receive from the Dental Office.  In the event that you don't get anywhere, you have documentation of the problem. 

At any point in the process, did they have you sign something saying you were happy with the denture set up?  Some practitioners will document the patient's acceptance at the try-in appointment, before the denture is processed.  At that time, changes in tooth arrangement, size and color can be made with minimal lab expense. 

If the letter doesn't get you anywhere, you might try going to the governing body of the dental profession in your area.  I am a dentist in Blue Springs, Missouri, USA.  Here, we have the Missouri Dental Board  (or the Dental Division of the Missouri Department of Professional Registration.)  This is the entity that licenses us to perform our professional duties in our state.  They often have a process to file complaints against a provider if you were unable to resolve the problem yourself.   After your complaint is received, they will contact the doctor to get their side of the story, then try to mediate a solution between the two parties.  

As far as a new set of dentures, you might seek out the services of a Prosthodontist (specializes in dentures and removable appliances - extra training and certification beyond general dentistry) or go to a local dental school.  The students are supervised and checked off at each step by professionals.  Most dental schools also treat patients through their faculty practices, and you can often get the services of a specialist at a lower price. 

I hope this information is helpful to your situation, and I wish you well.

Denture Care reviews in Waterbury

I continue to go to him because I’ve been very pleased with his services. He has done implants for me and general dentistry. Dr.
Waterbury Prosthodontists Provider Name Locked
is very personable and relaxed. He is also very informative and very thorough. He only works 4 days a week from 7-5 but I’ve always been able to get in touch with is service after hours. The staff is really friendly and personable. The office is clean and easy to get to. They get you in when they schedule you and if they have an earlier appointment, they give you the option to come in early. The girls in the office are extremely helpful and will work with you. Even though he is out of my insurance network, I’ve been able to stay with him because of their flexibility.

They advised us up front that they do not take our insurance but invited to come in for a free consultation and offered their in-house insurance plans. Unfortunately we could not find an affordable plan with my insurance. He exclusively does dental implants. His resume is seriously impressive. They were very nice and if I had money I would be there now. I have complete confidence in their ability to do what they said they were going to do. They were very thorough and very informative.

I have been using Dr.
Waterbury Prosthodontists Provider Name Locked
for years. He is an excellent dentist. He found the source of pain in my mouth when 3 other dentists told me it was a sinus condition. I have currently gotten 2 implants and 6 'new' teeth. My next appointment is in a few days. I trust him completely. He does excellent work. He gives painless Novocain injections. All the work that I have needed, including the implants, have been done in his office. The dental implant specialist, Dr

, works from Dr

He is a specialist and he does extraction, surgeries and repairs from wrecks. Both I and my husband consider him to be the best as far as the implants is concerned. He also teaches at the University of
Waterbury Prosthodontists Provider Name Locked
so we have a lot of confidence in his ability. The lady who tales you appointment is really accommodating. She is very professional and very knowledgeable.

When I went in for my extraction, he was so efficient and proficient with his work. I was able to do it with just a shot. He is a very caring dentist and he knows exactly what to do.

He was nice. I didn't have wait too long. He did a competent job. He was gentle and took the time to put me at ease. The parking was easy at his office, which I appreciated. They even validate your parking. My only problem was that he wanted payment after taking the impressions, before the job was completely done. That was a little odd, since most dentists and orthodontists send you a bill after they're done.

Dr Vacarean is a prosthodontist, a specialist in replacing or restoring teeth. We went to him after a number of nearby dentists. He is the only such specialist in my insurance network. We went there and he and his staff immediately impressed us with their friendly, caring competence. This is NOT the place to go for someone who demands dentures the same day. Dr Vacarean operates differently. He breaks the process into steps. An area has teeth removed and it is allowed to heal. Then another area. Another healing. Implants, etc. How good are my wife's dentures? She forgets they are in her mouth.
We have a dental home. I have nothing but praise for Dr Vacarean and his staff. They meet us at the door by name and always shake hands. This includes the doctor! That means they actually care about their patients.
The office is shared with Dr
Waterbury Prosthodontists Provider Name Locked
on different days. I believe she works with younger patients.

My experience with them has been good. I got good fitting dentures. Their availability is excellent. That's important when you have dentures, because when you're adjusting to the dentures, you're going to have sore spots and that really hurts. So you need to get in there quickly and have somebody file that spot down. You can't wait two weeks to get there. After you get your dentures, you don't need to make an appointment. You just call up and say, "I need an adjustment." And they'll say, "Come on in." The staff was very friendly when I was there.

She's very personable but very quick & efficient. She doesn't waste time. Her office staff (dental hygienists & dental technicians) are also very professional and very highly trained. I typically wait not more than 15 minutes to be seen when I arrive. She's busy but they keep to the schedule pretty well.
