Are Instant Dentures the Best Route to Take?

Posted on 11/10/2019 by Dr. Frank Sallustio
Are Instant Dentures the Best Route to Take?You may have heard of instant dentures and have been interested in obtaining them. For some people, instant, or immediate, dentures will be the best option after teeth removal.

However, certain circumstances may change the availability of them for you. To understand whether you may be eligible for instant dentures, it is important to know the pros and cons of the two.

Differences in Traditional Dentures and Instant Dentures

The process for getting traditional dentures varies greatly compare to the process for getting instant dentures. After the teeth are removed, we will mold your gums and cast them to be an exact fit that will be comfortable to wear all day. We will also determine the right tooth size and shade of tooth your preference.

Afterwards, we will need to send your gum molds to a lab where your dentures will be crafted. In the lab, a technician will craft your dentures to your unique specifications and send them back for you to start wearing.

The process for instant dentures is much quicker, but they can only work for patients. The day of your teeth removal, we will insert the instant dentures in your mouth. This has some advantages over traditional dentures, which require a lot of work to take in and out. Another added benefit of instant dentures over traditional ones is that you will not have to take the time to practice speaking without them.

This may seem like a small problem to have, but with traditional dentures, you will have to wait for them to be made, so while they are being made, you will need to learn to speak without teeth. One downside of immediate dentures is that they are generally more expensive than traditional dentures, however that is only the initial costs. If you have instant dentures over time, they may end up becoming less expensive due to the upkeep costs of traditional dentures.

If you have any more questions about instant dentures and their viability for you, give us a call at our office and we will be able to schedule an appointment for consultation. We also will not mind further discussing the benefits of instant dentures if you are interested in pursuing that path.
