how does immediate dentures work

What are Immediate Dentures

Immediate dentures are made before your teeth are removed. They are sometimes referred to an “immediate load.” Immediate dentures are designed to fit you perfectly before your natural teeth are removed. They can be taken out while you heal from your tooth extraction.

Immediate dentures can be made with acrylic or porcelain material. Immediate dentures are not meant to be permanent. Your dentist may prescribe them if you need a temporary solution for missing teeth. Immediate dentures allow you to enjoy eating and speaking with natural-looking dentures.

What are Immediate Dentures Used For

Immediate dentures are fabricated prior to tooth extraction. They are designed to be comfortable and functional while the mouth heals.

Immediate dentures provide many benefits, including:

- A speedy recovery process

- Reduced risk of bone shrinkage

- Ability to chew and speak normally

- The ability to eat any foods

- Aesthetic benefits

Following tooth extraction, your immediate dentures will be carefully placed in your mouth. A specialized dental adhesive will be used to keep them in place while you heal.

How Are Immediate Dentures Made?

Immediate dentures are made in advance using impressions of your mouth. The dental lab uses the impressions to craft the dentures, which are ready by the time of your extraction appointment for your remaining teeth. Immediate dentures don’t have any metal clasps or wires to hold them in place. Instead, they snap into place using suction.

Immediate dentures also require a little bit of training to learn how to speak and eat properly. You might feel some discomfort and pressure at first. However, your mouth will get used to the dentures over time.

How Are Immediate Dentures Placed?

Immediate dentures are inserted the same day as the tooth extraction. Patients are given an anesthetic to numb the extraction site. Immediate dentures are inserted to hold the gums in their new position. They can be removed easily for cleaning and to allow patients to get used to wearing them.

What Results Can Be Expected From Immediate Dentures?

Immediate dentures are removable dental appliances that can be placed immediately after tooth extraction. They are an excellent tooth replacement option for patients who want to achieve a functional smile quickly.

Immediate dentures are worn temporarily while dental implants are healing. Also called temporary dentures, immediate dentures provide patients with a beautiful smile while the implant post integrates with the jawbone.

Benefits Of Immediate Dentures

Immediate dentures are a type of denture that is inserted immediately after tooth loss. This is in contrast to traditional dentures which are made after teeth have been removed and gums have healed. Immediate dentures are beneficial for the following reasons:

- Immediate dentures allow patients to have teeth during the healing period. This can be very beneficial for patients who feel embarrassed or uncomfortable without teeth.

With immediate dentures, your dentist takes measurements and impressions of your mouth and jaw during your first visit. Your dentures will be designed to fit your mouth exactly and will be made in advance. When you return after the healing process, your dentist will make sure your dentures fit right and make adjustments as necessary.
