Instantly Fix Your Smile and Restore Missing Teeth

Are you looking for a solution to restore your smile and boost your confidence? Immediate dentures offer a quick and effective way to regain your dental aesthetics and oral functionality. At Buck Family Dentistry in Creston, IA, Dr. Michael Buck and his dedicated team specialize in providing top-notch immediate dentures that restore smile functionality and aesthetics.

What Are Immediate Dentures?

Immediate dentures, also known as temporary dentures, are prosthetic dental appliances designed to replace missing teeth on the same day they are extracted. This means you don't have to go without teeth during the healing process. Dr. Buck's skillful approach ensures that patients leave the dental office with a functional and natural-looking smile immediately after extractions.

Benefits of Immediate Dentures

Opting for immediate dentures with Dr. Buck offers various benefits:

  • Immediate Aesthetics: You’ll walk out of our Creston dental office with a complete set of teeth, preserving your smile and facial structure.
  • Minimal Adjustment Period: Since you start wearing dentures immediately, you quickly adapt to their feel and function.
  • Protection for Healing Gums: Immediate dentures shield the extraction sites, promoting healing and preventing infections.
  • Enhanced Confidence: Restored aesthetics and oral functionality lead to a renewed sense of confidence.

Candidacy for Immediate Dentures

Immediate dentures are an ideal option for individuals who:

  • Want to restore their smile without waiting for an extended healing period after extractions.
  • Seek a temporary solution while waiting for their permanent dentures.
  • Wish to avoid the discomfort of being without teeth during the healing process.

How Do Immediate Dentures Work?

Initial Assessment and Impressions

Dr. Buck starts by conducting a comprehensive oral examination and discussing your expectations. Impressions of your existing teeth and gums are taken, serving as a foundation for crafting your custom immediate dentures.

Extraction and Placement

On the day of the procedure, any necessary extractions are performed. Once the extractions are complete, your custom immediate dentures are carefully placed, ensuring a secure and comfortable fit.

Follow-Up Appointments

As your gums heal and adjust to the dentures, follow-up appointments are scheduled to monitor your progress. Dr. Buck makes any necessary adjustments to enhance the fit and comfort of your dentures.

Caring for Immediate Dentures

Proper care is essential to maintain the longevity and appearance of your immediate dentures:

  • Daily Cleaning: Remove and clean your dentures daily using a denture brush and mild cleaner.
  • Proper Storage: When not wearing your dentures, store them in water or a denture solution to prevent them from drying out.
  • Regular Check-Ups: Schedule regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Buck to ensure your dentures fit well and address any issues promptly.
