IMMEDIATE DENTURES IN ARNOLD, MO
When complete extractions of your teeth are necessary, immediate dentures are a great solution to replace your teeth. With an immediate denture, you can avoid embarrassment by never living without teeth. Meramec Family Dentistry offers immediate dentures in Arnold, MO.
The preparations for this denture begin before the teeth are actually removed. Impressions are taken of the existing teeth and gums to create duplicates as your replacement teeth after extraction. Usually, immediate dentures are placed the day your teeth are removed so you never have to go without a smile.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT IMMEDIATE DENTURES
Most of the time, we are unable to check the fit of the denture before the teeth are extracted. Compromises may have to be made in some cases if there is not enough space or there are structural concerns.
Immediate dentures are mainly for cosmetic purposes. Functional activities such as eating, talking, and getting used to the dentures will come in the weeks and months after the extractions.
The end result is a beautiful, complete smile!
Remember to follow all post-operative instructions for optimal healing. After extraction, our gums and bone may recede. Regular check-ups and maintenance are necessary to monitor healing and minimize problems.
Temporary linings or tissue conditioners help create the best fitting dentures. The dentures may need to be relined during and after the healing period. After the healing process, a permanent reline will ensure a comfortable, more exact fit.
- The professionals at Meramec Family Dentistry will advise you of the procedure that best suits your individual needs.
- The temporary liners, tissue conditioner, and relines are additional denture services and may involve separate fees.
