Same Day Immediate Dentures could provide the perfect solution for patients who need teeth removed but do not wish to be without their teeth while they wait for a permanent solution.
Initially, we will assess your teeth to make sure that an immediate denture is the right treatment for you. We will then take impressions and ask the dental laboratory to produce your custom made immediate dentures.
If the immediate denture is small (i.e. replacing 1-3 teeth), the laboratory can produce the denture without any further information. If the immediate denture is going to be longspan, then the laboratory will also need a registration of your bite.
Once the denture is ready, we will then remove the affected tooth/teeth and fit the denture immediately. A follow-up appointment will be needed to review the denture as immediate dentures generally need some adjustments after they are fitted.
Following a few months of wearing these immediate dentures, the patients gums and bone will shrink in the tooth extraction region as this shrinking process always happens naturally mainly in the first 12 months after teeth extractions. Patients will find that their immediate dentures become more loose after a few weeks-months and as a result the immediate denture will have to be either relined or remade to improve their retention.
Yes. Temporary bridges are a fixed alternative to immediate dentures. However, temporary dental bridges tend to cost more than immediate dentures. Dental implants are another option for patients who wish to have an immediate fixed replacement for their missing teeth.
Keeping the dentures clean is imperative to reduce the risk of developing infections. Dentures should be cleaned after each meal and kept out of the mouth when sleeping.
