Patients who are unable to avoid the complete extraction of their smile due to damage or decay will want to speak to a dentist about their options. Dentures are the obvious choice, but San Francisco, CA, area patients have another solution to consider immediate dentures.
Drs. Terri Nguyen and Laura Huynh of West Portal Family Dentistry are committed to providing solutions for patients who need dental repair. With immediate dentures, patients have a choice. Immediate dentures are part of a process in providing patients with a restoration to eliminate them living without teeth. Immediate dentures are placed the same day as extractions to provide single-appointment results.
First, patients work with their dentists during a consultation appointment to determine their plan of action. Then, impressions are made of the existing teeth and gums. This gives a base model for the dentist to use to create the denture. Then, an appointment is made during which the remaining teeth are extracted, and the final denture is placed. Patients leave the same day with their new smile!
The benefits of immediate dentures include:
Patients who maintain their regular check-ups and cleanings with West Portal Family Dentistry will be able to enjoy their immediate dentures for many years!
