With traditional dentures, you would schedule a visit for tooth extraction and your dentist would take an impression of your mouth after extraction, from which to design your custom fit dentures. The impression would be sent to an outside lab that would create your new dentures, taking several weeks. When the dentures are ready, another visit is required for you to receive your dentures, which would include a fitting. This is not the case with Same Day Immediate Denture options for adults missing teeth.
Same Day Immediate Dentures are the most time efficient of the denture options for adults missing teeth. You would be scheduled for an impression (mold making of your teeth) appointment, at which time our specialists would take the impressions (molds) of your teeth and mouth, which will be sent to the lab. However, the lab will create your custom teeth, pre-make your new dentures ahead of time, and return them our specialists to place your denture on the same day. Once placed, dentures must stay in for a specific time period after their initial placement. Their presence helps alleviate post-procedure bleeding and healing.
