How Can You Get Dentures Immediately After Extraction?


Posted on 11/10/2019 by Dr. Hallas
How Can You Get Dentures Immediately After Extraction?Typically, after a tooth extraction, the gums need time to heal and using traditional dentures will harm the gums right after surgery.

For traditional dentures, it may be necessary to wait up to eight weeks after a dental extraction before they are ready to use. However, if waiting on your dentures is not an option or not something that appeals to you, there is another option for immediately implementing dentures right after surgery.

Instant dentures can be used right away after a tooth extraction. Often times, instant dentures are the best option following an extraction. Instant dentures, like traditional dentures, are fitted to be comfortable to use throughout the day.

Benefits of Immediate Dentures

Instant dentures pose some benefits when compared to traditional dentures. One of the main benefits of instant dentures is the ability for them to be installed the day of the extraction. This in itself is a large benefit because you will be able to immediately begin getting used to your new teeth which is important for establishing speech. Being able to establish speech from the early stages of your tooth extraction is helpful, because you will need to learn how to talk without teeth while you wait on your traditional dentures to be usable.

Another benefit of instant dentures is safety and healing. After your tooth extraction the instant denture will be placed inside the mouth and it will protect the tissue inside your mouth. Using the instant dentures as protection for the tissues inside your mouth can help speed recovery and protect from infection post extraction. This is especially beneficial if you are at risk of infection, because infection could delay the use of traditional dentures even further.

One last benefit of instant dentures is your ability to eat food. During the eight weeks many people wait while getting their traditional dentures, you will be able to begin eating with teeth again. Of course, you will not be able to eat solid foods right away, but the time it takes will be much quicker than the time of a person who uses traditional dentures.

If you have any more concerns about instant dentures, please give us a call and we can discuss the benefits of further. We may also be able to schedule you an appointment to see if you are eligible for instant dentures.
