What are Immediate Dentures?

Badly damaged or weakened teeth can be replaced with dentures. Dentures are removable prosthetics that can take several months to fabricate. You'll need to wear immediate dentures while you wait for your device and the site to heal.

Immediate dentures are inserted in your mouth the same day as your tooth extraction. They prevent debris from penetrating the site and causing irritation. They also allow you to proceed with your daily routine without feeling self-conscious about missing a single tooth or several teeth.

What Can I Expect During and After Getting Immediate Dentures?

Here’s a general timeline for getting temporary dentures. Note that it can change on a case-by-case basis.

  • Your dentist takes impressions of your mouth for your temporary dentures about 1-2 months before your scheduled tooth extraction.
  • Right after your extraction, your dentist attaches your temporary dentures. They help ease the transition as you wait for your partial or complete dentures.
  • Expect some discomfort during the first few days of wearing your new dentures. Your mouth is still adjusting to your oral appliance.
  • While still getting accustomed to your immediate dentures, it’s best to maintain a soft food diet to avoid putting pressure on the area. You may slowly introduce more food variety as you get used to your device.
  • After a few months, the site will have healed. Your immediate dentures will no longer fit as well as they did before. They’ll start to shrink and change form, so you’ll need to see your dentist again to have them relined or replaced.

Advantages of Immediate Dentures

  • Immediate dentures keep you from going without teeth while you wait for your permanent dentures.
  • They protect the extraction site from irritation. Debris can penetrate the area and cause infection.
  • They aid in smooth healing after your tooth removal procedure.
  • Immediate dentures make diet changes easier to manage. You’ll only need to stick to soft foods while the site is healing.
  • They keep you from having to learn and relearn speech patterns. If you go without teeth, speaking becomes more challenging. You must get used to the changes in your mouth when pronouncing words. When your final dentures arrive, you'll have to relearn how to speak with your new device. Immediate dentures save you from this inconvenience.
  • They minimize changes to your facial structure, as you don’t have to go without teeth. As a result, your cheeks won’t appear sunken.

Disadvantages of Immediate Dentures

As with any dental solution, immediate dentures also have their cons.

  • There’s no opportunity to fit or try your immediate dentures on. While they’re customized for your mouth, the process doesn’t allow for adjustments before they’re finally inserted.
  • Soreness and discomfort are expected for wearers.
  • Immediate dentures require periodic relining for them to fit properly in your mouth.
  • Since they’re not fully customized to your mouth, they may move or shift when worn. This may trigger a gag reflex in some people.

How Long Do Immediate Dentures Last?

Immediate dentures are designed for temporary use. They can last from 6-8 months. It’s important to see your dentist for follow-up checks so they can evaluate how the site is healing and if your immediate dentures already need adjustments or a replacement.

Will I Need Immediate Dentures?

Not everyone will require temporary dentures before getting their permanent dentures.

Hayven Dentures collaborates with your dentist or oral surgeon to customize your treatment plan. Collaboration between the dental professionals involved in your case is crucial to the success of your denture procedure.

My parents needed new dentures. After a lot of research, we decided to go ahead with Hayven Dentures. I am so happy we did business with them. They were detailed and patient enough to make the dentures comfortable for you to wear. This is the third time I have made dentures for my parents and the ones with Hayven was my best experience. Thank you to Hayes, Judy and Cherie for all your help!

I was recommended by my dentist to Hayden Dentures . I made an appointment and was quickly scheduled and was a very pleasant experience and the staff and owner were more than helpful and professional. My dentures were made and fitted with procession. They were very natural and I had to have them adjusted slightly and they made my appointment very quickly and was perfect. I would highly recommend this business and their staff , they exceptional and are genuinely a pleasure to deal with. Thank you for all your hard work.

First of all, I’d like to begin by saying the service is outstanding. Dr. Hayven and his staff are terrific. They take their time they have patience and they do great work. He is very thorough and doesn’t try to upsell he just sells you what you need he actually talked us out of the highest rate. He didn’t feel that my sister need it or would benefit from the best of the best so overall very pleased with everything. he tried to fix my sisterβ€˜s other set that she had made elsewhere where the job just doesn’t compare to what he did then the old set never fit from the get-go. She is a very complicated case has hardly any gums left so very difficult, but he managed to make it work. my sister and I thank you from the bottom of our heart for just caring so much it’s people like you who make a difference in our world πŸ’—
