What is a Denturist?

Denturists construct, repair, reline, reproduce, duplicate, supply, fit or alter removable prosthetic dental appliances or other removable non-orthodontic dental appliances. In the fitting process, denturists also take impressions, bite registrations, try-ins or insertions.

Denturists may provide full dentures to replace complete sets of original teeth that are missing in the upper, lower or both sections of the mouth, or partial dentures, which fit sections of the mouth in which some of the original teeth remain.

Denturists may also provide removable non-orthodontic dental appliances such as teeth whitening trays and snore guards.

Denturists provide services independently and directly to the public in their own offices, in dental laboratories and businesses that specialize in denture services, and work in collaboration with dentists, orthodontists and oral surgeons to provide comprehensive dental services to patients.
