Immediate Dentures Pasadena, Deer Park Texas:
An immediate denture ( Same Day Denture ) is placed when your teeth are extracted. The immediate denture involves taking impressions before the extraction date.
The immediate denture is completed before your teeth are extracted. Therefore, you will have the opportunity to approve the cosmetics, tooth size, tooth shape and color of the denture teeth before the denture is finished. Immediate dentures allow you to have teeth immediately following full teeth extraction. However, it is important to note that dentures in no way function like natural teeth. The dentures will look like teeth but that is where any similarity between teeth and dentures end.
Facts about Immediate Dentures:
Dr. Nugent is unable to try-in the denture before the teeth are extracted. Thus, some cosmetic compromises may be necessary. Regular dentures barely fit. Immediate dentures fit more poorly then regular dentures. This is due to the fact that the immediate dentures were fabricated prior to the teeth being extracted. Dr. Nugent and the laboratory must guess where the gum tissue will settle to after the extractions.
After the teeth extractions the gum tissue and bone will begin to shrink and disappear. Therefore, the dentures will become increasingly loose. Patients must compensate with the poor denture fit caused by shrinking gum tissue by using denture adhesives.
Dental Implant Dentures:
Dr. Nugent is a regional leader in dental implant dentures. This procedure has the ability to transform patient’s lives. Dr. Nugent can create stable and secure dental implant dentures.
The dental implants are placed into the jawbone and allowed to heal. Over a couple of months the bone grows around the implant and fuses to the implant. Now the implant is SECURELY anchored into the jaw bone. Dr. Nugent then converts an existing denture into a dental implant denture. This new denture will “snap” onto the implant and does not move. The denture has anchor points and patients throw away their denture adhesives. Patients are no longer worried about their dentures falling out. Because the dental implant denture is secure, there is no movement and no more ulcers and sore spots from unstable dentures.
