Waiting isn’t for everyone. If you’re eager to get your new teeth as soon as possible, our team at Digital Denture Centre can help. We offer immediate digital dentures, which, as their name suggests, are fitted immediately after your natural teeth are extracted. This means you won’t have to go without teeth while your gums heal and your denture base is being made.
We can manufacture your immediate dentures as full or partial, depending on how many teeth need to be replaced. Our dental prosthetists will take detailed measurements and impressions of your mouth before your natural teeth are removed, so we can better ensure your immediate dentures fit perfectly.
If you’re interested in getting immediate digital dentures in Bendigo, please call our clinic on 03 5454 3997 to book an appointment.
Immediate dentures are fitted the same day your natural teeth are removed. They are worn until your mouth’s geography has adjusted to the absence of your teeth, supporting the lips and cheeks while the soft tissue and bone remodel around the implants. In cases where extensive tooth loss has occurred, immediate dentures are often the best option to maintain appearance and function until permanent dentures can be placed.
Some of the advantages of having immediate dentures fitted include the following:
At your initial consultation, we will discuss your desired results and the treatment options available to you. We will also thoroughly examine your mouth, teeth and gums to ensure that immediate digital dentures are the best option for you.
From there, we will take digital impressions of your teeth using the latest CAD/CAM denture technology. This information will be used to create a 3D model of your teeth, which we will use to design your new dentures. This is a much more accurate and comfortable process than traditional methods, allowing us to create a perfect fit for your new dentures.
Immediate digital dentures are not suitable for everyone. If we determine that you are not a suitable candidate for this treatment, we will recommend an alternative treatment plan. Schedule your free consultation today to see if you are a suitable candidate for immediate digital dentures.
Your mouth will heal under your denture just as it would if you had lost all of your teeth. Your immediate denture will protect your tooth sockets by sealing off the area and keeping food and bacteria out.
Immediate dentures are a temporary solution until your permanent denture is ready. They can last anywhere from 18 to 24 months, but it is crucial to keep in mind that they may need to be relined or replaced sooner if your mouth changes shape as it heals.
Yes, you will need to see your dentist or prosthodontist for regular check-ups and adjustments. This is because your mouth will continue to heal and change shape after your immediate denture is placed, which can affect the fit of your denture. 2-4 tissue conditioning treatments and 1-2 permanent relines within a 24-month period are common with immediate dentures.
Your mouth should heal within a few weeks. However, the tissues may take up to six months to fully recover. It is vital that you keep your denture clean and brush your gums daily to promote healing.
