For some people who are missing teeth, traditional dentures aren’t always the best option. They can slip and slide when you speak, and ill-fitting prosthetics can cause discomfort and difficulty when eating. Fortunately, there is an alternative that allows you to reclaim your smile and the full functionality of a complete set of teeth all within a single visit: Same-day dentures in Eugene, OR from Dr. Ben Sutter. Custom-fitted dentures are crafted and placed on the same day that your extractions are performed for a superior fit, and you never have to worry about spending time without teeth.
Same-day dentures are exactly what they sound like: replacement teeth crafted in a single day so patients don’t need to go without teeth, unlike with traditional dentures that require multiple appointments.
Same-day dentures can be completed so quickly because they are molded to your mouth before you have your teeth extracted. That way, you’ll be able to walk out of our dental office with a completed smile instead of having to wait multiple weeks to receive your permanent restoration. As you heal from your extraction procedure, we’ll make any final necessary adjustments to your replacement teeth to ensure that they fit perfectly.
Dr. Sutter typically recommends same-day dentures for patients who are looking to rebuild their smile quickly or who have damaged teeth that will need to be replaced. After he examines your mouth and takes X-rays to capture a complete visual of your oral structure, he’ll determine whether this treatment is the best option for you. He may also offer dental implants or full mouth reconstruction if either option fits your needs better.
Many individuals who have been missing teeth for years seek a tooth replacement solution in the form of dentures and partials. Having a full set of teeth is crucial to proper nutrition, clear speech, and self-confidence; after all, a smile marred by multiple missing teeth isn’t a smile you’re very likely to show off to the people who matter most in your life. Dr. Sutter has been providing patients just like you with modern tooth replacement options for years, and he’s always happy to sit down with you to discuss your individual needs, concerns, and expectations.
If you and Dr. Sutter determine that same-day dentures are the right choice for you, he’ll begin the process by conducting a thorough assessment of your jaw, gums, and any remaining teeth. Specialized impressions will be taken to ensure a comfortable, secure fit and a natural appearance. With the same-day dentures procedure, your dentures will be placed on the same day that your extractions are performed, allowing you to move on with your daily life with a full smile that looks as good as you’ll feel.
