Same Day Dentures
Fort Smith, AR
Here at Harper Dental we have a team of qualified experts, who will restore your smile through same-day dentures. Same day dentures also referred to as immediate dentures, are a form of dentures that you get immediately after our dentists extract your natural teeth. Immediate dentures can either be full dentures or partial dentures.
How Do These Dentures Work?
Even though it is possible to get same day dentures straight away after your natural teeth are extracted, you will need to visit our offices for around four to five days before the teeth are extracted. These visits are very important since they assist our dentists in getting the impressions of your teeth and jaw. In addition to this, our dentist is also able to choose the color they need to use when making your same day dentures.
It is also during these visits that our dentists remove your back teeth if necessary, before proceeding to remove the rest of the other teeth. This step is necessary for patients who need to get a full set of dentures because it allows the area to heal completely, which allows the same day dentures to fit well. Therefore, you shouldn’t ignore these visits since they assist in ensuring that your dentures fit perfectly and that you won’t have any complications with them.
It’s important to understand that these same day dentures come with their pros and cons, just like any other dental procedure. Some of the most important pros and cons of same day dentures are listed below.
Pros of Same Day Dentures
One of the greatest benefits of same day dentures is that you will always have your smile even after your teeth have been removed. After your teeth have been removed, you will leave our office with a brand-new set of teeth. Same day dentures also play an important role in protecting your gums once we extract your teeth. Lastly, you won’t need to change your diet due to lack of teeth since same day dentures can function like your normal teeth.
Cons of Same Day Dentures
Same day dentures tend to be a bit more expensive than normal dentures. In addition to this, you will need to undergo several adjustments as your gums shrink and heal. Same day dentures can be a bit uncomfortable, especially when you use them immediately after we extract your teeth since your gums will be swollen. Lastly, it’s important to note that not every patient who visits our offices will be able to get same day dentures since this procedure greatly depends on the structure of the patient’s mouth.
