Dr. Scott Butts may recommend immediate dentures to ensure you do not spend any time without teeth between your extraction and receiving your dentures. This appliance is a crucial solution for patients facing complete tooth extraction and involves creating your dentures prior to tooth removal.
Before your teeth are extracted, our dentist and team will take impressions of your teeth and gums to create an accurate model for your dentures. This precise impression allows us to fashion dentures that fit comfortably, and which will replicate the natural appearance of your teeth. After your teeth are extracted, we will immediately insert the dentures, ensuring that you maintain both the aesthetics of your smile and your ability to chew and speak as usual.
It is important to note that assessing the fit of your denture before tooth extraction is not typically possible. Adjustments or compromises in your denture may be needed to accommodate your unique oral structure initially. As your mouth heals post-extraction you may notice changes in your mouth and in the fit of your denture, making further adjustments to your appliance necessary. Please speak with our dentist as soon as possible if you notice any changes to the fit of your dentures or if they are not as comfortable or as effective as they should be so that we can make any adjustments you may need.
We also emphasize the importance of adhering to postoperative instructions and scheduling regular checkups after you receive dentures. These follow-up appointments enable our experienced dentist to monitor your healing progress and ensure your dentures continue to function optimally.
