DenturesIf you are missing teeth, visit Gregg L Lage DDS, PC to learn more about immediate dentures and how we can replace teeth quickly. Living without teeth provides distinct challenges both to health and appearance. Not only can missing teeth become embarrassing, but it can also make speaking and eating food more difficult. To prevent this level of inconvenience, many patients are seeking a fast solution; one that we can provide.

Why people need immediate dentures

Patients who visit our Denver clinic in need of a fast solution, are usually dealing with one of the following issues:

  • Teeth have been lost in a car or sports accident
  • A dental infection has led to teeth falling out or needing to be extracted
  • An old set of dentures has broken or no longer fits

While there are a variety of options, immediate dentures stand out above the rest for multiple reasons. This solution is best for patients who:

  • Are in a hurry
  • Need a full set of teeth to keep their job or meet work obligations
  • Are insecure without a full set of teeth
  • Cannot afford to replace teeth using a dental bridge or dental implants

While there is a bad reputation of dentures in film and in Television, dentures are both functional and practical. Yes, dentures can make a good joke in a movie or even for a gag gift but, they are far more beneficial than these jokes let on. The chance of dentures becoming loose or falling out is slim since we can customize each set to securely wrap around the gums. We will take careful measurements and a mold of the mouth to ensure that the dentures fit properly. Since we take measurements ahead of time, the teeth themselves will also look natural because they will be the correct size and shape for the mouth.

We can eliminate a common concern that people have about looking as though they have overly large teeth. It simply does not happen any longer, given the level of care and attention we pay when creating each set. Anyone who has concerns about the security of dentures will also be pleased to know that there are ways to secure them in the mouth. The easiest is to use an adhesive paste.

We apply the adhesive paste to the dentures themselves to help them remain secure to the gums. An affordable and easy solution, many patients find that it is also rather effective. For even more security, dental implants can be useful. By placing several implants in the mouth, the dentures can have a base to secure to. This makes them feel more like a set of natural teeth, perfect for anyone with an active lifestyle.

Types of dentures

There is also more than one type of immediate dentures. Patients can wear temporary dentures while we create the permanent set. Patients may also wear a temporary denture if they are waiting for a dental bridge or dental implant. We can also quickly create permanent dentures using modern technology.
