If you need to have some or all of your teeth removed and are worried about your appearance, then we can make you immediate dentures or “same day dentures”.
Immediate dentures offer a great solution for patients who need teeth removing but do not wish to be left with unsightly spaces. Once the denture has been made, the failed teeth are removed and the immediate denture is fitted at the same appointment.
Once teeth are removed, your gums and bone naturally remodel and shrink. This means that with time (around 3-6 months), your immediate denture will no longer fit your mouth as well as it did on day one. After 3-6 months we may need to carry out a simple reline procedure for your same day dentures to improve their fit.
New dentures always feel strange when first placed in your mouth. Everyone is different and it could take several days or weeks to get accustomed to them. Often time and experience are essential before dentures can be worn comfortably and function effectively.
