You know that getting dentures could help you get your life back, but you’ve been putting it off. Why? Because you’ve heard that you may have to live without teeth for several months during the process. While that’s true for some types of dentures, same day dentures are available immediately, meaning you don’t have to go a day without teeth.
Are they right for you? Here’s what you need to know about same day dentures and how they compare to other options.
The Benefits of Traditional Dentures
Traditional dentures are inserted after your gums have fully healed following any extractions or oral health treatments. The major drawback is that it can take several months for your mouth to fully heal. The main benefit of this treatment regimen is that it allows for your dentures to be crafted perfectly for your mouth, resulting in a better fit. The superior fit and comfort mean that your dentures will likely have a longer usable lifespan.
The Benefits of Same Day Dentures
The main benefit of same day dentures (also known as “immediate dentures”) is obvious – you go home with a full set of teeth the same day your old ones are extracted! You don’t have to live a single day without teeth. This is particularly helpful if you work in customer service or are in continual contact with people and can’t afford to live without teeth for a long period of time. The main drawback of same day dentures is that your gums will change shape for several months during the healing process, meaning that a perfect long-term fit can be more difficult to achieve. If you choose same-day dentures, expect to visit your denturist for relines and adjustments more frequently, and also expect that you will likely need to replace your dentures sooner than traditional dentures.
