Same Day Dentures
Winston-Salem & Greensboro, NC
When you think about dentures if you are like most people you imagine a set of removable teeth. They could be partial dentures, or you might even picture an entire set of new teeth. For generations that have been what dentures have been all about.
If you need dentures, you will show up for the first appointment, a mold would be taken of your mouth, and any teeth that were left would be removed. You would then go home to heal, and once your gums were healed, you would return to get your new dentures. They would be made from the mold so that they would fit your mouth.
There is now another choice when it comes to dentures. That choice is known as same day dentures. We here at Eric J. Sadler, DDS & Associates have found that same day dentures have given many people a new chance at a normal life.
You Can Have a New Smile in One Day
If you could have new teeth and a brand new smile in one day, would you do it? Here is what is you will want to know about same day dentures.
For same day dentures, you will show up early for your appointment. When you arrive, we will take impressions and make a mold of your mouth. Then we will pull the remaining teeth. That is the first stage of the procedure.
Later on the same day, we will bring you into the back once again. This time, it will be to give you your brand new set of teeth. We will implant the dentures into the sockets where the teeth were. We will check everything for you, and we will give you instructions on how to care for your same day dentures. That is it! You will then be able to have someone drive you home with a brand new smile.
If you have pain when you get home, an ice pack could help. We will also talk to you about pain medicine. For the first few days you will want to eat soft foods, but then you will be able to eat like you did when you had a full set of healthy teeth.
Unlike traditional dentures, same day dentures are permanent. You will not be able to take them out, and you will not have to soak them on the nightstand next to your bed overnight. They are your new teeth.
It will continue to be important to brush your teeth every single day. Also, do not forget to brush your gums and your tongue. We will make sure that you know what you need to do to keep your new teeth beautiful for a lifetime.
Your same day dentures will look like natural teeth. You will want to show off your new smile. Contact us here at Eric J. Sadler, DDS & Associates if you would like more information.
