Immediate Dentures in Mooresville
Can Transform Your Life
If you're worried about being without your teeth for an extended period of time while waiting on a new denture, Dr. Keadle offers immediate dentures that can be worn directly after your extraction procedure. Their are some unavoidable drawbacks, as explained below.
Immediate dentures, by their very nature, cannot be made to fit perfectly. To make matters worse, they are being placed onto a jawbone that has multiple large wounds (extraction sockets). Saying that they aren’t comfortable is an understatement, and believe it or not, things start getting worse again after they get better, because your jawbone shrinks very rapidly in the ten or twelve months following tooth extraction.
For this reason, New Smile Carolina cautions everyone who is getting immediate dentures that if something is better than nothing, then immediate dentures are the only choice, but not to expect much until the jawbone shrinkage slows down in six to twelve months.
After several months, the immediate dentures will need to be re-lined, to make up the gap left when the gums shrink and achieve a better fit.
What are the Benefits of Immediate Dentures?
- You don’t have to go without teeth for several months after tooth extractions.
- Unfortunately, that’s about it.
Despite the drawbacks, most people decide that immediate dentures are better than the alternative. If immediate dentures are for you, here’s what’s important to know: At New Smile Carolina, you can get the tooth removal, the jawbone surgery and shaping that may be necessary, and the creation and fitting of the denture all in the same office, and with the same highly skilled and highly trained doctor.
