Immediate Dentures

Immediate Dentures

An immediate denture is one that is fabricated prior to the natural teeth extraction and inserted into the mouth immediately following the extraction procedure. An immediate denture may be complete (full) or partial.

While having immediate dentures placed in the mouth right after the surgery may seem odd, it helps with the healing process a great deal:

– it helps control the post-surgical swelling and should be worn without removing for 3 days
– it prevents harmful bacteria from entering the wounds and causing an infection
– it allows the patient to feel confident while interacting with others
– it helps the patient re-establish the speech pattern ahead of time before the permanent dentures are placed
– it helps preserve, maintain, and support the soft tissue and contours of the face during the healing process
– immediate dentures can look very good and improve patient’s look and smile
– it helps process (chew) the soft food, aiding the digestive system

While your dentist and the dental lab will strive to make a perfect fit for your immediate dentures, some minor adjustments may be required, because of the unpredictability of the post-surgical bone reshaping and soft tissue shrinkage. Since the original impressions for an immediate denture are taken before the removal of the teeth, a soft temporary reline material may be used to refit your denture, if needed, during the healing process. It takes up to six months for the tissue to heal completely and finalize the permanent dentures.

Wearing an immediate denture may seem like a challenge and requires patience. The tong getting used to the “bulky” teeth, the feeling of not having adequate room inside the mouth, practicing certain sounds, irritable gums, difficulty chewing, and not being able to eat your favorite foods—this is to be expected during the healing process.

Our friendly staff at CV Dental care will answer all your questions and find the best possible solutions to make your smile perfect.

Tooth Extractions

At CV Dental Care, we are dedicated to helping you preserve as many of your natural teeth as possible. Protecting and improving the health of your smile is our first priority. There are times, however, when removing an impacted tooth is unavoidable. If one of your teeth is severely damaged, it may be necessary to extract the tooth to prevent any further complications.

A tooth extraction is most commonly required if:

  • A tooth is deeply decayed or in the advanced stages of gum disease
  • A tooth does not respond to a root canal therapy
  • A tooth has extensive bone loss
  • A tooth has a fractured root
  • A tooth is broken beyond repair
  • A tooth is poorly positioned, such as an impacted or problematic wisdom tooth
  • Erupting wisdom teeth interfere with the orthodontic alignment of teeth

We understand that replacing missing teeth or whether to do so at all may be a challenging decision for many patients. There is a number of negative consequences patients can suffer over time, if they decide against tooth replacement: shifting teeth that affect the bite and cause difficulty chewing, an empty space noticeable in a smile, or even further damage to the adjoining teeth. We strongly advise replacing the missing tooth or teeth with an implant, fixed bridge, or denture as soon as possible.

Тhe Tooth Extractions Process

Before removing your tooth, your dentist will numb the area—jawbone and gums– where the tooth will be removed, using a local anesthetic. If several or all of your teeth need to be removed, a stronger, general anesthetic may be used. Your dentist will insert special tools between the tooth and gum surrounding the tooth, moving it back and forth within the socket (the bone that encases the tooth’s root) until it separates from the ligament that holds the tooth in place. You’ll feel a lot of pressure during this process without feeling pain. This is because the anesthetic has numbed the nerves stopping the transference of pain, yet the nerves that transmit pressure are not profoundly affected. The whole procedure should take minutes to complete. Let your dentist know if you do feel pain at any time during the extraction.

After the extraction, you need to bite on a gauze pad for 30-45 minutes to allow for a blood clot to form to stop the bleeding. You may need to place another gauze pad and bite firmly for another 30 minutes, if the bleeding still persists. You may have to do this several times to restrain the flow of blood. Avoid rinsing vigorously, sucking on straws, smoking, drinking alcohol, or brushing teeth next to the extraction site for 72 hours. As there may be some pain and swelling after the extraction, an ice pack applied to the area will keep swelling to a minimum. The swelling usually subsides after 48 hours.

Use the prescribed pain medication as directed. Call our office if the medication doesn’t seem to be working. If antibiotics are prescribed, continue to take them for the indicated length of time even if signs and symptoms of infection are gone. Drink lots of fluids and eat nutritious, soft food on the day of the extraction. It is important to resume your normal dental routine after 24 hours, including brushing and flossing at least once a day. This will speed healing process and help keep your mouth fresh and clean.

Call our office immediately if you have heavy bleeding, severe pain, continued swelling for 2-3 days, or a reaction to the medication.

Same-Day Crowns

Same-Day Dentistry with Same-Day Crowns!

Computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology has been revolutionizing many industries, including dentistry. Remember when it used to take two separate appointments to get a dental crown? Even just a few years ago, patients had to endure mouthfuls of messy impression materials and wearing temporaries for weeks at a time. Now, with our E4D Dentist® system, it is all a thing of the past!

Our doctors can now complete beautiful restorations like crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers in-office, in only one appointment.

Benefits for our patients:

  • Safe and simple procedure
  • One appointment
  • Advanced laser technology provides absolute precision
  • No need for temporary restorations
  • No unpleasant or messy impressions

Our state-of-the-art system allows Drs. Bigler, Rassam, Standage, Barela, Garlick and Weir to replace conventional impression methods with a clean, fast digital scan that is obtained in just a few minutes through a series of photographic images taken in the mouth. Combining this scanned data with our advanced software, we’re able to design a custom, permanent restoration. A milling unit then fabricates your restorative design quickly and conveniently, right in our dental office.

Your final result is a natural-looking restoration of superior strength that perfectly matches the surrounding teeth, making your crown, veneer, or filling virtually undetectable. The elimination of impressions, temporaries, and second appointments enhances the entire dental experience for our patients. As an added bonus, many of our patients love watching their new tooth come to life in the milling unit right in front of their eyes!

The E4D Dentist® system was created by D4D Technologies, LLC, headquartered in Richardson, TX. For more information please refer to the D4D Technologies Website, www.d4dtech.com.
