When you are getting complete dentures for your upper or lower plate, it is understandable that you would want to get them right away. After all, you want to feel confident about smiling and speaking and laughing. And at the office of Abraham Esses, DDS, we can supply you with temporary dentures, or what are also sometimes called immediate dentures, in advance of your permanent ones. There are pros and cons, of course, so let’s lay them out so you can make an informed decision; one that is best for your unique needs.

With complete dentures, the goal is to give you ones that are perfectly fitted for maximum comfort and reliability. When the last of your natural teeth is removed, there is a period of time during which your gum and bone tissue will shrink. This is natural, and waiting for it to occur before placing your permanent dentures leads to less complications and fewer adjustments required for our Sheepshead Bay dentures. Of course, waiting may pose challenges for you. It’s possible that you may feel awkward around friends, family, co-workers, clients, etc. That’s where temporary dentures come in. The pros are that you will have an immediate solution for your lost teeth and will feel more confident around other people. The cons are that the fit will not be as ideal as you would like. They may feel “weird” to you, and the shrinkage of bone and gum will mean that you will need adjustments to account for those changes. There is also an additional cost to getting our Sheepshead Bay dentures right away, since you are getting two sets made: one temporary, and one permanent.

What is right for you? Why not come in for a consultation where you can have all your questions answered and determine along with our dentist which version of our Sheepshead Bay dentures you prefer?

If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, you will definitely want to visit us at our dental practice, Abraham Esses, DDS. Our Brooklyn dentist, Dr. Abraham Esses, will be able to provide you with removable prosthodontics – dentures and partials – so that your smile can be fully restored.

Complete dentures will replace a full row of teeth in your mouth. If you get dentures immediately after teeth are extracted, these are called immediate dentures. These dentures are not meant to last for a long amount of time. Instead, they will be worn for several months while your gums fully heal. After the gums have fully healed, our Brooklyn dentist will then have conventional dentures made for you. These dentures are your permanent dentures, and will not only be fully functional and comfortable, but they will provide you with a beautiful smile. You will get your conventional dentures probably between eight and 12 weeks after your teeth have been removed. The benefit of getting immediate dentures is that you will never be without teeth, as you will receive these dentures right after your teeth are extracted. Partial dentures are provided by our dentist when there is one or several remaining teeth left in the patient’s upper or lower jaw. The partial dentures will be made to fit around the remaining teeth. The remaining permanent teeth will be protected by the partial dentures, as it will keep the permanent teeth from moving and loosening. Our dentist can also provide fixed bridges for our patients who have missing teeth that need to be replaced. Fixed bridges are permanently attached to adjacent teeth, and will provide a new replacement tooth.

For an appointment to meet with our Brooklyn dentist regarding getting any type of dentures or partials, simply contact us today. At our dental practice, we know that there is never a one-size-fits-all solution to tooth replacement, and our dentist will carefully assess your individual situation to determine what will work best for you.
