"Great first dental experience. They were very timely when I got there, and everyone I interacted with was professional and friendly. The whole process was super smooth (and the cleaning was the most painless cleaning I've had) so I had no concerns scheduling my next appointment right away."- R.R. / Google / Jun 16, 2022
"I have been a member of Grove Dental for many years. Recently the office has been experiencing a high turn over and some notes in my chart didn’t seem to be clear with payment information which had me stressing. I was told I needed to speak to the office manager to move forward. I thought it was the same manager who already knew about my account, but found out he was also no longer with the practice . I was told there was a new office manager named Keisha and she would call me back when she was free and able. She had called me back right away with such a welcoming and friendly voice. I explained to her my frustrations . She actually did her investigations before calling me back so she new everything without me having to explain which made me feel so at ease knowing we were on the same page. She assured me things will be ok and also helped me schedule for my following appointment right away. I’m so glad Keisha is part of the Grove Dental Team. She seems to be doing an amazing job as their new office manager. I’m so grateful for her help!"- G.T. / Google / Jun 07, 2022

"I’d like to start out by saying that the quality of work done by both the hygienists and the dentists is top notch. They also use the latest technologies and the office is very clean and comfortable. My hygienist Jenna is phenomenal - smart, thorough, personable. She’s one of the main reasons that I keep coming back despite living in the Philly area now. In terms of the quality of dental work - you can’t beat it here.I’m giving four instead of five stars, however, because I also had a billing issue last year that ultimately cost me almost double what their original outlined cost was. I paid a fairly hefty amount out of pocket for a crown as my insurance didn’t cover it all, and I paid that amount outright the day the procedure was performed. Months go by and I suddenly receive another considerable bill in the mail. Assuming it was a mistake, I called and the billing employee informed me that the insurance wasn’t paying as much as they originally quoted and it was due to the fact that Grove dental made a mistake, as the verbiage/info around this is apparently usually on the insurance company’s homepage, but in my insurance’s case it wasn’t as immediately explicit on the homepage of their site and Grove dental overlooked it. I found this very frustrating particularly because customers like myself rely on our dentist/ their billing department to handle the insurance end and present customers with accurate costs. Despite the fact that their billing department made the mistake, I ended up paying the price for it. Outside of the one poor billing experience I explained above, I’ve otherwise always had an excellent experience with Grove Dental and have been a customer with Wyomissing/Grove Dental since I was a kid. If you’re looking for superior dentists and hygienists who really do great work, look no further."- I.S. / Yelp / May 19, 2022
Ideal Candidates for Dentures
Dentures can be used to replace upper and/or lower teeth. You may be a good candidate for custom dentures if you have lost a few or all of your teeth or if you need to have unsalvageable teeth removed and replaced. Healthy natural teeth may be left in place to provide support and anchorage for partial dentures. In some cases, a set of dental implants may be surgically positioned in the jaw to which a fixed implant-supported denture can be attached. When you visit with our team to discuss tooth replacement, we will examine your mouth and jaw and explain your denture options based on your needs and goals.
What Is the Denture Process?
The type of dentures you are receiving will largely determine the treatment process for your tooth replacement:
Full dentures: Full dentures are crafted in a dental lab from impressions taken of your mouth. These removable appliances are made of acrylic, resin, and/or metal framework and fabricated to mimic the appearance of natural teeth and gum tissues. If you have teeth that need to be extracted, we may take impressions of your mouth first and have our lab make an immediate denture to be worn right after your teeth have been removed. Once your mouth has fully healed, about 8 – 12 weeks later, we will take a new impression to make your conventional denture.
Partial dentures: Partial dentures will be customized to blend with your natural teeth for a seamless result. As removable appliances, partial dentures are held in place through metal or plastic clasps that attach to support teeth. Our team will take an impression of your upper and lower arches, which our partner dental lab will use to customize your tooth replacement.
Fixed (implant-retained) dentures: After a series of dental implants are placed in the jaw, our team will take an impression of the mouth from which the lab will use to create a special implant-supported denture or full-arch appliance. Our dentists will then securely attach the appliance to the implants.
Once your new denture is ready, we can adjust the fit as needed to ensure comfort and stability. In some cases, a small amount of denture adhesive may be helpful in keeping your denture in place.
Caring for Your Denture
It may require some time before your new denture feels comfortable and natural, but it should eventually be easier to eat and speak normally. If your denture ever feels loose, please contact our practice to have it adjusted or possibly relined. At home, you can keep your denture clean by taking it out and brushing it after every meal. When you remove your denture before bedtime each night, it should be soaked to prevent them from drying out. Even if you have full dentures in both arches, we still recommend that you keep routine dental visits at Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics so that we can evaluate the fit of your tooth replacements and health of your underlying gums and bone. We can also use a professional solution to clean your dentures during your appointment. When well-cared for, dentures can last for several years.
Does Insurance Cover Dentures?
If you have insurance, a portion of your custom dentures may be covered under your plan. We will be happy to provide a complimentary benefits analysis to help you maximize your coverage and provide an estimate of any personal costs. To make dentures as affordable as possible, Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics accepts several forms of payment, including special patient financing through Wells Fargo.
