Our dentist and team can provide you with either an immediate or complete denture if you have missing teeth in your smile. Both types are designed to fit comfortably inside your mouth so you can perform normal daily functions with ease.
Immediate dentures are placed right after we have performed a tooth extraction, so there is no need to wait for your new smile. They are made by taking digital impressions of your teeth to create a model for your appliance. After we finish up building the model, we will create your dentures and place them inside your mouth once your teeth have been removed.
Advantages of immediate dentures:
- Can enjoy a new smile right away
- Eat and drink the foods you love without having to wait
- Easier to duplicate the shape and color of your natural teeth
Complete dentures involve removing all the teeth in a dental arch before a denture is created. They require you to wait between eight to 12 weeks without teeth in order to place in a full dental arch. They take less work to replace an entire arch of teeth and are less costly than other tooth-replacement options.
Advantages of complete dentures:
- More affordable
- A shorter treatment time than dental implants
- Gives you an aesthetically pleasing smile
