A friend is getting full lower and upper. The dentist is saying the ultimate fit will leave them "adhesive free" and no need for polident tablets, just brush them with tooth brush and "soap" and water.

Soap and water?
No adhesive?

Anyone experienced these ultimate fit?
They got the impressions done on the 11th and were told the dentures are being made in house and will take 6 weeks. We have a regional dental lab here and I would have thought they would have made the dentures for Affordable Dentures.

I'm a dentist (I don't do dentures so I'm no expert) but this sounds like fancy marketing to me. The best fitting denture is still a denture.

Traditional dentures are highly customized to fit the individual patient. This requires 4-5 visits and involves various measurements of the patient's jaw, speech pattern, etc. In addition, the patient is allowed to select the color and size of the teeth, as well has have an opportunity to try them out (they are set in wax) to make sure they are happy with the esthetics and position BEFORE the denture is processed into acrylic.


"Same day dentures" generally follow a "one size fits all" approach. Usually the office has a room full of stock, pre-made dentures and then simply relines the inside of them with acrylic material to get the closest fit to the gums of the patient. Think of a tailored suit vs. one off the rack with no alterations.

They do have in house. We would have expected them to use the regional dental lab 3 miles away. They can not due to their low prices. They lady is spending about $1,000 for the lower and the same for the upper. Ultimate fit they are called.

Maybe they lying are using an offshore dental lab, but if so I'm not sure how they would deal with a patient who had to wait another 6 weeks if it had to be redone.

Maybe I stated it unclearly.
They had the impressions on June 11th and were told it would take 6 weeks before they had the wax set ready for fitting.
