Question:
Lower Partial Plate: What is a reasonable amount of time for a partial plate to be prepared for a patient?

My dentist took impression on 8/8/12 and again on 10/23/12. I have called his office 3 times in the past 10 days to see if it is ready. A message is taken to give to the dentist to call me but he has not returned my calls and I'm starting to get concerned.

Is this amount of time within reason for prepration of the partial? I did not previously have teeth removed so a healing time was not necessary. The partial only has about three teeth on the lower right jaw. Thank you for your response. .... Visitor from Charlotte

Answer:
Most accomplished dentists who routinely fabricate partials, with a good dental lab, can create a new partial in 2-3 weeks.

Unless extenuating circumstances were operating, your treatment "experience", as described in your email borders absurdity. While technical errors do occur with even the best dentists and dental labs, most dentists correct them immediately.

You may want to contact your State Dental Board for more assistance. Returning to this dentist for further treatment may not be in your best interests.
