You may be in a position where you need to have many teeth or the remainder of your teeth extracted, as they are irreparable. However, you may feel uncomfortable leaving your extraction appointment with missing teeth. We can conveniently create an immediate denture for you. With immediate dentures, also known as temporary dentures, you can leave your dental appointment with confidence rather than feeling embarrassed about missing your teeth.
If you decide to receive this type of denture, we will create your denture before extracting your teeth. Then, you will receive the denture immediately following the extraction. When you decide to get a conventional denture later, your immediate denture can serve as an excellent placeholder until your new denture arrives.
Besides a full smile and fresh set of teeth, immediate dentures assist with speaking and chewing. Furthermore, you might opt for an immediate denture if your remaining teeth are too sensitive to take on the pressure caused by eating without the support of neighboring teeth.
All in all, a temporary denture is ideal for anyone who might find it painful, damaging, or inconvenient to live with no teeth temporarily. Your immediate denture will be custom made, as we will mold it to your mouth, so you can be confident that it will fit your mouth perfectly.
To create your immediate denture, we will create impressions of the mouth before we extract your natural teeth. We can measure your bite during this time. Then, we will have your temporary denture fabricated in time for your extraction appointment. Finally, we will insert the denture once your extractions have been performed.
Your immediate denture may require some adjustments following your extraction. Jaws and gums might change shape as they heal. For instance, you can expect your bone and gums to recede after tooth extractions. The team at Alondra Dental Care can easily make these adjustments while you wait for your permanent denture. For example, we may use tissue conditioners or temporary linings to create the optimal fit.
It is paramount that you also follow all of the postoperative home care instructions we provide for you following your extractions. Regular dental checkups and maintenance appointments will also be critical for preserving a healthy and comfortable mouth as you transition to wearing dentures.
At Alondra Dental Care, we offer a full range of treatments and services, ranging from dentures to porcelain veneers, bridges, and dental implants. We also offer non-surgical root canal therapy, dental crowns, and dental fillings. With all of our treatments, our focus is always on your needs and long-term oral health.
