What are Immediate Dentures?

Losing teeth can be a distressing experience. Thankfully, modern dentistry offers solutions that ensure you don’t have to go without teeth for an extended period post-extraction. One such solution is immediate dentures.

Immediate Dentures Defined:

As the name suggests, immediate dentures are ready for placement immediately after removing natural teeth. This ensures that patients don’t face the inconvenience of being without teeth during the healing phase.

Benefits:

  • Aesthetic Appeal: No need to hide your smile or feel self-conscious, as immediate dentures ensure you have teeth right after the extraction.
  • Functionality: They aid in normal functions like speaking or eating while the gums and bones heal.
  • Protection: Immediate dentures act as a bandage over the extraction sites, potentially reducing bleeding and helping in the healing process.

Considerations:

  • Temporary Solution: Immediate dentures are generally a temporary solution. As the gums and jawbone will change shape during the healing process, adjustments or even new dentures might be required later.
  • Maintenance: Regular check-ups are necessary to ensure the dentures fit well as your mouth heals and changes shape.

Immediate dentures offer a convenient solution for those needing tooth extractions but are concerned about toothless’s aesthetic and functional implications during recovery. It’s always advised to discuss with a dentist or prosthetist the pros and cons tailored to individual cases.
