Immediate Dentures: Your Teeth in a Day Solution
Missing or decayed teeth can indeed be a source of discomfort and embarrassment, but you don’t have to wait long to flaunt a perfect smile again. With immediate dentures, you can get a new set of teeth the very same day your teeth are extracted. At Vallance Dental Centre, we offer this remarkable treatment to restore not just your beautiful smile but also your confidence and oral health. In this comprehensive guide, you’ll discover everything you need to know about immediate dentures.
What is an Immediate Denture?
An immediate denture is either a complete or partial denture inserted into the mouth immediately after tooth extraction. It is custom-designed prior to your tooth removal appointment, ensuring you don’t have to spend any time toothless as your gums and jawbone heal. Unlike traditional dentures, immediate dentures serve as a temporary solution during your healing period, after which you will receive a final or permanent set of dentures.

Advantages of Immediate Dentures:
- Teeth in a Day: No need to navigate the world without teeth while you heal. Your full smile is restored on the same day as your extraction.
- Improved Appearance: Maintain your facial structure and avoid the sunken look that can occur post tooth loss, ensuring you look your best as you heal.
- Initial Fit Adjustments: Your immediate dentures may require adjustments as your mouth heals and changes shape. You might need a second set of dentures, known as “definitive dentures” after complete healing.
- Additional Cost: Immediate dentures can be pricier than traditional ones because extractions are involved. However, understanding the costs involved is essential and you can review our dental charges for more clarity.
- Temporary Solution: Remember, immediate dentures are a temporary solution. Transitioning to a permanent set post-healing is necessary, involving additional time and expense.

Transitioning from Immediate to Definitive Dentures
Once healed, your dentist will take fresh impressions to create a definitive or permanent set of dentures, tailored to fit your healed gums and jawbone, ensuring your utmost comfort and oral health. Transitioning to your permanent dentures is a crucial step to ensure the longevity and health of your new smile.
