What Are the Benefits of Same-Day Dentures?

By: Dr. Perpetua Okojie


At Lush Dental & Implants, we understand that a person's teeth are part of their identity, from their appearance to the way they affect speech. That's why Dr. Perpetua Okojie and Dr. Shedrack Okojie are excited to offer same-day (or immediate) dentures for Hudson Oaks, TX patients who need to have teeth extracted to preserve their dental health. With our approach, you can continue to enjoy talking, smiling, and eating in comfort with no interruption. If you need to have several teeth extracted and are exploring your options for full or partial dentures, we invite you to take some time to learn about the benefits of same-day dentures.

How do same-day dentures compare to traditional dentures?

The biggest advantage that same-day dentures offer over traditional dentures is the timing. Traditional dentures typically require several weeks to a few months to complete, as they are fitted after the gums have healed from extractions. On the other hand, same-day dentures are prepared in advance and can be placed almost immediately after tooth removal. This option gets rid of the waiting period, allowing patients to leave the dental office with a full set of teeth the same day their teeth are extracted.

What is the process like for immediate dentures?

Whether you need a full set of replacement teeth or partial dentures, the process starts with an in-depth consultation and planning session with our dentists in Hudson Oaks, TX. Before any teeth are extracted, we'll take impressions of your mouth to craft a precise model for the dentures. On the day your teeth are removed, your tailor-made dentures will be prepared and custom-fitted to your mouth almost immediately, ensuring a smooth transition that leaves no gap in your smile. This efficient approach offers a greater level of comfort and restores confidence without delay.

What are the benefits of same-day dentures?

Immediate dentures offer several compelling benefits:

  • No waiting period: You won't have to face the world without teeth while waiting for traditional dentures to be made.
  • Healing and functionality: They act as a bandage to control bleeding and protect gum tissue during the healing process.
  • Immediate aesthetic appeal: You can enjoy a full smile right away, which can be a significant boost to self-esteem and social confidence.
  • Adaptation: Getting used to speaking and eating with dentures happens quicker since you start right away.

What should I know about maintaining my same-day dentures?

Maintaining your same-day dentures is crucial for preserving the health and appearance of your smile. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • Regular cleaning: Just like natural teeth, dentures need to be cleaned daily to remove food particles and plaque.
  • Handle with care: Dentures are delicate and can break if dropped, so handle them over a folded towel or a sink filled with water.
  • Soak overnight: Most dentures need to remain moist to keep their shape. Soak them in a denture-cleaning solution or water overnight.
  • Regular dental checkups: Visit Lush Dental & Implants for regular checkups to ensure your dentures fit correctly and to monitor your oral health.
