Immediate dentures are removable prosthetics made for the top jaw, lower jaw, or both. They are delivered at the time of complete mouth tooth removal so you will always have teeth. Due to health and lifestyle choices, teeth don’t always last. Fortunately, there are advanced tooth replacement options. Immediate dentures are a good and viable option for many patients facing tooth loss. Dr. Clark Damon provides Immediate Dentures in Richardson, TX.
Patients with healthy teeth are not candidates for immediate dentures as healthy teeth do not and should not be extracted. Dr. Damon and Dr. Blankenship will never recommend immediate dentures to improve aesthetics.
Immediate dentures are a good and viable option for many patients facing tooth loss.
Dr. Damon and Dr. Blankenship will provide IV sedation to make the process pain and anxiety free for the patient as the entire process includes multiple tooth extractions and bone management to make the jaws acceptable for dentures.
Many dentists give only oral sedation or perform this surgery while their patient is awake. Yet, neither of those treatment modalities works predictably for multiple extractions. With IV sedation, Dr. Damon and Dr. Blankenship tailor the dose of the medication directly to your needs allowing a comfortable procedure for the doctor and patient. Our staff has performed more than 3,000 successful and safe IV sedation.
We also provide monthly soft liners, temporary “liners” that help the dentures fit better during the healing phase. Liners are essential to maintaining patient comfort during the first few months. Our staff is well-trained and will address your concerns and help you adjust to your new lifestyle with dentures.
We deliver immediate dentures at the time of surgery. Typically, we place a soft liner at the time of teeth removal which will be changed out at one to two weeks after the operation and suture removal.
