Also known as ‘Immediate’ dentures, same-day dentures are used for patients who have to have their natural teeth extracted. Without waiting for the area to heal, the dentist inserts the new denture immediately; no healing, no waiting between appointments. Same day dentures are much quicker to fit than most other types of dental treatment.
At your first consultation, you will have your teeth and jaw assessed and impressions taken. This is an imperative step in the treatment and means your new dentures will fit into your mouth perfectly.
Dental technicians will then select the correct colour, shape, and size of the teeth, carefully matching it to your remaining teeth colour.
After teeth are removed, the bone in that area naturally resorbs (shrinks back). Most of this resorption occurs in the first year after tooth extraction. As a result, the same day denture is likely to become looser as time goes on. However, the denture can be relined in future to make it fit more firmly again.
Yes, you could wait without a denture until the socket heals and then have a permanent denture made.
You could have a dental bridge made, either a traditional bridge or in some cases a no tooth preparation adhesive bridge. Bridges are a fixed alternative to dentures, however, in some cases they do require the neighbouring tooth to be prepared. Denture bridges require 1-2 weeks to be made.
You could also opt to have a dental implant. Although this option is much more expensive than dentures they are a longer lasting, fixed solution to the problem of missing teeth. Dental implants usually require a few months to be completed.
