Missing teeth are no fun. Whether you lost them because of an accident, decay, or gum disease, it can be hard to choose a method of replacing them. There are a lot of options out there, from bridges to dental implants. However, all but one requires you to leave your gums exposed, leaving you more vulnerable to bacteria. How can you avoid this problem? Same-day dentures in Jacksonville. Let’s take a closer look at 3 ways that getting same-day dentures, also called immediate dentures, can benefit you.
1. You Never Have to Be Without Teeth
After you get teeth extraction, your gums will be extra sensitive for a while as they heal. This can make it hard to chew. In addition, your gums are exposed to bits of food that can attract bacteria and make you more likely to get an infection, which is the last thing you want while you’re healing. Your dentist in Jacksonville can place immediate dentures right after the extraction, so your gums are protected right away, and you don’t have to spend the healing process without teeth.
2. You Learn to Talk More Quickly
When you go without teeth for long enough, your cheeks can fall in, making it harder to speak correctly. You might develop habits that make it hard to talk during the process where you’re learning to live with your dentures. Same-day dentures prevent your cheeks from falling in and giving it a sunken, older appearance. They also allow to you to immediately start developing correct speaking patterns.
3. You Can Replace Your Natural Smile
When your dentist performs an extraction and then a replacement with immediate dentures, he or she can see what your natural teeth look like. This allows him or her to replicate the shape and color of the teeth on your dentures to more closely match the way your smile used to be. This replication of your former teeth can make it less obvious that you have had any dental work done. You’ll feel more confident. No one will know you got same-day dentures unless you go around bragging about how easy the procedure was!
Same-day dentures offer several benefits that other methods of tooth replacement simply do not. If you are interested in extracting and replacing your teeth with immediately dentures, contact your dentist today.
