Same Day Dentures
West Linn, OR
Unwanted tooth loss can cause immeasurable personal shame and embarrassment. Even with proper oral hygiene and a good dental care regimen, some people are more susceptible to tooth loss, yet many negative stereotypes exist around missing teeth. A beautiful smile can make your confidence soar, but gaps in your teeth can just as equally make it plummet. When you are missing teeth, you may find yourself unwilling to smile, leading to conflict in personal relationships and at work. We here at ZenTech Dentistry are pleased to offer same day dentures to our valued patients, helping them feel good about their smile once again.
What Type of Same Day Denture is Best for You?
Most of us either have experienced dentures ourselves or know someone who has dentures. The good news is that today’s dentures are nothing like older generations of dental prosthesis. In the past, dentures were unwieldy, clunky, and downright unattractive. The acrylic resin was an unnatural pink hue, and the prosthetic teeth were starkly white and blocky. Now, however, dentures are much more attractive and realistic looking, providing superior appearance and fit for our patients.
There are two primary types of same day dentures available to our patients. These include same-day conventional dentures and same day dental implant supported dentures. Regardless the type you choose to get, we will work with you to give you the best and most beautiful smile possible.
Same day conventional dentures are typically cast from a special type of material called “cold cure” acrylic. This means that they set quicker, getting them from the lab and into your mouth faster. We will start with an impression of your mouth and then immediately start crafting your dentures in-house.
Same day dentures do not require waiting after a dental extraction, so if you have any teeth extracted during your appointment, you can still get your dentures in the same day. Please be aware that same day conventional dentures may need relining later on down the road due to the natural shrinking of your gum tissue. You may also elect to use your same day dentures as a temporary placeholder as you wait for regular, “warm cure” acrylic dentures.
Another choice for our patients includes implant-supported dentures, such as All-on-6 denture implants. This is a surgical choice, but it is also permanent and looks like real, natural teeth. Implant supported dentures start with a titanium post placed surgically underneath your gums, directly into your jawbone. The restoration is then placed on the posts emerging from the titanium implants, giving you a complete restoration of your smile in just one day. Unlike conventional dental implants, which do require downtime for healing, implant-supported dentures do not require these same delays. Furthermore, while some patients may not be candidates for regular dental implants due to bone loss, bone grafts are often not required for implant-supported dentures. They can also last you the rest of your life if you take good care of them.
