If you have been considering dentures, then there is a good chance you have heard about immediate dentures. Whether you are considering full or partial dentures, immediate dentures are a good option. 

What Are Immediate Dentures? 

They are a temporary solution for patients who don’t want to be without teeth. The same day you have a tooth (or teeth) extraction, you can walk away from your appointment with immediate dentures in place. An impression of your mouth is taken before any extractions can take place. This allows the technician to match the immediate dentures to your natural teeth and ensures the immediate denture is ready for extraction day. This impression will help us create the immediate dentures to match your bite. The technician will also take shape, size, and shade into account. It isn’t a custom-fit like a permanent denture will be. 

After extractions, there is often swelling, which means your permanent denture set must wait until your mouth has healed. Additionally, your mouth must fully heal before final impressions are taken. The technician will need these to ensure your permanent denture is custom-fit. It can take several months for your mouth to heal properly, and it takes time to manufacture permanent dentures. Immediate dentures serve as a stand in to facilitate healing while protecting your smile. 

When Is An Immediate Denture Required? 

It can take up to six months to receive permanent dentures, which is when immediate dentures are required. They aren’t custom-fitted, and they last eight months at most. That being said, your denture specialist can tweak the fit of immediate dentures as your mouth begins to heal. 

Once your immediate denture is in place, you should wear it continually for at least 48 hours. This is to aid healing and control bleeding. In the meantime, you should eat soft (cold or ambient temperature) foods that will help reduce swelling. It’s also important to avoid alcohol and smoking, both of which can extend the healing time and worsen any symptoms you may be experiencing. Once they’ve been in a few days, you will have a follow-up appointment where necessary adjustments will take place. Additionally, you may need further adjustments throughout your time wearing them. They also may require relining, which is a simple denture repair. 

The Benefits of Immediate Dentures   

The greatest benefit of immediate dentures is you have teeth while you wait for your permanent set to arrive. You can have a new set of teeth to put in the same day as the extractions take place. Teeth are a key aspect of your confidence, and living without them can damage your self-esteem. 

Immediate dentures offer a simple but effective solution that bolsters your confidence and aids healing. With the immediate dentures in place, the extraction site has protection, which allows the tissue and gums to heal properly. Not only that, but they help to reduce bleeding. If you are not having full dentures done, an immediate denture will help ensure the remaining teeth do not shift while you await your permanent dentures. 

Can I Switch To Permanent Dentures Later? 

Yes, immediate dentures are a temporary solution. They provide you with teeth while you wait for your permanent set of dentures to arrive.

From my first phone call to Tomika explaining my situation with my teeth and how bad they were and that I didn't know where to start, to having my first free appointment with Elias was the best thing I have ever done. Tomika is very easy to talk to, friendly and professional. Elias, well he is great, told me exactly what he could achieve, the cost and the timeframe and he was spot on. Read more

Elias prepared a full set of dentures for my 90 year old mother. The service he provided was exceptional, using current technology effectively to create a set of dentures which were far superior to what she had previously had. Elias also made it very clear that my mother could go back at any time if minor adjustments were required. He gives meticulous attention to detail. Tamika ensures that appointments run to time.

State of the art technology and skills and ability to match. I went to the clinic highly anxious ( my previous dental encounter at another clinic resulted in a panic attack and blacking out twice whilst in the chair) due to the poor integrity of my teeth, as a direct result of a health condition I had lost the majority of my teeth and the remaining were nothing short of a train wreck. Elias treated me the utmost respect and kindness. Read more

Faqs

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth. At Aesthetic Dental and Denture Clinic, we offer two types of denture, complete and partial. Complete dentures are necessary when all your natural teeth are missing. A partial denture is used when some natural teeth remain. If you are having extractions, we can also provide you with an immediate denture. This is often an interim denture so you can avoid the embarrassment of being without teeth.

A denture usually lasts between five and seven years. Time and natural changes in the mouth will affect the fit and wear patterns of your denture. If your denture is worn and doesn’t fit as well as it used to, it may require a repair or reline. Having your denture checked every two years will help to ensure a proper fit and by following your denture care instructions, you’ll extend the life of your replacement teeth. 

Dentures don’t last forever. Dentures usually last between 5 to 7 years and need to be relined every 1 to 2 years. Over time dentures become worn and don’t fit as well, so it’s important to reline them regularly. The better you follow your denture care instructions, the longer your replacement teeth will last. 

It is advised that you visit your dentist every 6 months for a check-up and clean. This will help to prevent any major oral health issues from occurring. However, if you have bad breath, bleeding gums, discoloured teeth, cracked or chipped teeth, tooth or jaw pain it is advised to make an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible.

At Aesthetic Dental and Denture Clinic, we know attending the dentist can be difficult for nervous and anxious patients. We offer a number of options to help make your next visit as calm and stress-free as possible. Contact us today and a friendly dental technician will be able to give you all the options available.
