If you have gotten your teeth pulled out you have options, either wait till they have healed fully to get a new set or get immediate dentures. Immediate dentures help bring back the smile on your face right after having teeth pulled out. For the best results, you can visit our offices for extraction and denture placement.
What are immediate dentures?
Immediate dentures are complete or partial dentures that you can wear on the same day as you have your teeth extracted. They are commonly known as temporary dentures and provide a number of benefits that you can enjoy until you get permanent dentures. For example, you can eat and talk normally and smile brightly after having permanent dentures.
For the first 24 hours, you will need to wear them without removing them. They prevent your gums from getting swollen. After healing, you can wear dentures and remove them as normal. Temporary dentures are strong enough to last six to eight months or even longer depending on how much you need them.
Why should go for dentures
Replacing missing teeth has always been a good idea. However, replacing them immediately after extraction has many advantages. One, you never have to appear in public without your aesthetic and bright smile, they are a complete copy of your teeth making them the best replacement option. Immediate dentures look like your own teeth, they match the size, shape, and color of the natural teeth.

They improve your ability to chew your favorite nuts while you wait for your new dentures. Also, they minimize facial distortion, helping the patient go back to their facial aesthetics and shape.
