Making and Fitting Immediate Dentures

Thursday, September 28, 2017

The first-time or immediate set of dentures is the most important you will ever have made. They are fitted immediately after the extraction of teeth either by an oral surgeon or a dentist. It is critical they are made with the utmost care for the patient’s future comfort and the functionality of the dentures. The position of teeth, how they need to be moved and the change in the patient’s occlusion (the way their teeth come together) are all part of the consideration.

At Dentures Plus their treatment protocol around making and fitting immediate dentures is second-to-none. Ryan Carlton knows that immediate dentures are a major change to your body and that it may take quite some time to adapt to them. They provide comprehensive advice to their patients and are just a phone call away if there is anything you are concerned about. It is their role to solve any problems and to achieve the best outcome for each patient.

Once you have your dentures it is very important to clean them effectively daily to reduce the amount of bacteria that can accumulate on them – just as with natural teeth. Keeping your dentures clean will greatly aid in keeping your whole mouth clean and healthy. They need to be cleaned with denture toothpaste and a brush and Dentures Plus highly recommend Caldent Denture Cleaner.

If you are wanting a new smile for Christmas Ryan says that now would be the time to come in for a consultation. Dentures do take several weeks to design and make.

You will find Dentures Plus at 396 Innes Road. Ryan is happy to take evening appointments up to 7.00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays in addition to their normal hours.
