Full Upper and Lower Immediate Dentures

Immediate dentures are used to replace missing gums, bone and teeth at the same time as extractions. We measure and make dentures in house at Designer Dentures and make sure that they look good. This gentleman hadn’t been to see a dentist since he was in Intermediate School where he had a traumatic experience. He is now in his early 30’s and is a single man but his natural teeth were not of good health and every single tooth in his mouth was loose due to advanced periodontal disease. It was a big procedure for him to decide on and say it is time to take out all of the teeth in his mouth and have a full set of dentures fitted at the same time as the surgery.

However as you can see from the smile on this young man’s face he is very happy with the decision and his confidence will grow substantially as a result. Whenever Immediate Dentures are fitted there is some discomfort naturally as the gums and bone is still healing. We can expect there to be pain and for the dentures to become loose as the gums and bones heal and reshape. However in most circumstances this is still the best option and realistically it is better to have teeth to chew with, smile and speak with rather than waiting 6 weeks or more to heal.

At Designer Dentures we are very skilled at doing Immediate Dentures and have worked with several dentists such as Southern Care Dental, Smile Dental, Dentistry for Chickens in Auckland and even The Tooth Company in Hamilton to treat patients with unhealthy natural teeth. Yes the dentures to present some level of discomfort but the adverse health effects of leaving infected teeth in the mouth can be major ranging from heart disease, strokes and sadly people have even died from severe tooth infections. If your teeth are a health hazard to you or you are experiencing constant pain and infection, or even if your teeth are effecting your lifestyle negatively come and see us in a free consultation.

Best of all you may not even need to pull out all of your teeth too. We can do immediate partial dentures too and accurately match the teeth on the denture to blend in with your own teeth. Khush is a true artist with composite materials and can make a denture that has very natural effects worked into the denture. Also if you were to have an immediate partial denture you can have it made with a material which we can add to. This way you can join more teeth to the denture if more of your teeth fail in future. The picture is of course however a young man with a full set of upper and lower immediate partial dentures because none of his natural teeth could be saved. We have made dentures for some people in their 20’s even and as old as 97 years of age.
