Immediate dentures offer a practical and aesthetically pleasing solution for individuals facing complete tooth extraction. These custom-made dentures are designed to be placed directly after the removal of your natural teeth, ensuring you don’t have to endure any period without teeth. They are often recommended when tooth extraction becomes the optimal choice for improving your overall oral health.
The process of getting immediate dentures starts before the extraction itself. Our skilled dentists begin by taking precise impressions of your existing teeth and gums. These impressions serve as the foundation for crafting dentures that fit your mouth comfortably and mimic the appearance of natural teeth. Once your dentures are ready, they are placed immediately after your teeth are extracted by a surgical specialist, allowing you to maintain your ability to speak and chew without delay while enjoying a natural-looking smile.
It’s important to note that in most cases, it’s not possible to check the fit of your dentures before extracting your teeth. Adjustments may be necessary to ensure a proper fit and functionality. Due to the unique anatomy of each patient’s mouth, some compromises in aesthetics or minor adjustments may be required.
As your mouth heals following the tooth extraction, you may experience changes in the fit of your dentures. Regular checkups and maintenance appointments are essential during this phase. Our experienced dentists and collaborating specialists will closely monitor your healing progress and the fit and function of your dentures, making any necessary adjustments to ensure your comfort and satisfaction.
If you’re considering immediate dentures or have any questions about the process, don’t hesitate to contact our office. Our team of experts is here to provide you with comprehensive information and top-notch care to help you maintain a healthy smile and quality of life.
