Immediate Dentures are for those patients transitioning from their natural teeth into dentures. Many patients find themselves at the end of the road when it come to options for their natural dentition. By this time the teeth are either decayed, broken or just plain worn out. Also, teeth can be lost due to periodontal disease or infection of the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. The progression of either or combination of these factors contributes to the shifting and gapping of the teeth. In addition, the gum infection can cause increasing bad taste and mouth odor.
All of this can lead to poor diet, discomfort and for many a loss of self confidence. Asking for help sometimes is the most difficult part in making the decision to get started. Here at Elite Dentures our complimentary initial consultation is all about getting to know you and your needs.
Once it is determined that extractions and immediate dentures are appropriate for you, accurate dental impressions will be taken of your mouth. Through a series of appointments, the dentures will be fabricated prior to the extraction date with input from the patient regarding cosmetic choices. Patients are generally offered oral sedation in combination with nitrous oxide at the extraction appointment. All teeth are removed and dentures placed immediately. Post operative healing checks will be scheduled and the dentures adjusted and soft comfort liners placed. After six months of healing, a final reline of the dentures will be accomplished to finish the procedure. The results are nothing short of amazing. Not only is the mouth returned to a state of better health, but the patient looks and feels so much better about themselves.
