Custom Dental Grills

Dr. Vincent Wan


When you want something for your teeth, be it a denture or a dental grill, the best place to go to is the dentist.  We have knowledge about your teeth and gums to ensure your custom dental grill looks great, fits well and won’t damage your teeth and gums.

Here’s what is needed in 4 easy steps:

  1. Get Your Teeth and Gums Ready
    For your custom dental grill to fit well, we need to make sure the teeth and gums where the grill will fit are healthy.  This starts with a comprehensive checkup and clean.  The checkup picks up any tooth decay, gum disease or any other issues with the teeth and gums.  These need to treated first or your custom dental grill can damage your teeth and gums.  Cleaning is important to ensure the surfaces that the custom dental grill touch are accurately represented in the impressions on which the custom dental grill is made.  This makes sure we get the best and most comfortable fit.
  1. Take Impressions of the Mouth
    Once the teeth and gums are healthy and clean, impressions of the tissues can be taken to form models of your mouth.  These models are used to make your custom dental grill.
  1. Design Your Custom Dental Grill
    You can provide your own design or we can help you pick the right one for you.  Your dentist and the dental technician who will make your custom dental grill will give you appropriate advice on what works well.  We can basically do anything you want as long as it can fit your mouth and won’t damage your teeth and gums.
  1. Fit Your Custom Dental Grill
    Once your design has been made into your dental grill, it needs to be tried in place to ensure a comfortable fit.  Once you are happy with your custom dental grill, you can wear out of the practice.
