Dentures In a Day, Restore Smiles In Redwood City
If you are facing extraction of all your teeth, immediate dentures may be the best solution. These “dentures in a day” eliminate the embarrassment and inconvenience of being without any teeth. At Peninsula Dental Implant Center, we restore smiles and minimize the impact of tooth loss by providing this effective solution.
What to expect from dentures in a day
The process for receiving immediate dentures begins before your teeth are extracted. We begin by taking impressions with the existing teeth which allow us to fabricate dentures that replicate your natural teeth. Once the dentures are ready, you will come in for your extraction appointment and have your immediate dentures placed that same day.
Important information about dentures in a day
With immediate dentures, it’s impossible to check the exact fit prior to placement. We have years of experience with immediate dentures, so we always do our best to make sure the fit is as snug and comfortable as possible. In some cases, we must adjust the dentures to ensure proper fit.
Taking care of your mouth after dentures in a day
In the days following your extraction, its important follow specific instructions to ensure proper healing of your gums. You will be on a liquid/soft foods diet for the first few days. We recommend sticking to foods such as yogurt, pasta, eggs, soups, and smoothies.
Your bones and gums will recede following the extraction. During this time, we may have to make adjustments to the dentures to create a better fit. It’s important to maintain scheduled appointments so we can monitor health and healing. Make sure to report any sores on the gums to us right away.
