At John Leitner, DDS, we understand that losing teeth can be a difficult and stressful experience. That’s why our Grand Haven dentist offers custom dentures, tailored to meet your oral health needs and smile goals. With immediate dentures, your smile can be restored in just one appointment to our dental practice.
Immediate dentures, also known as same-day dentures, are a type of dental prosthesis designed to replace missing teeth immediately after extraction. These dentures are custom-made to fit your mouth and provide you with a temporary set of teeth while your gums and bone tissue heal and adjust to the extraction process.
An immediate denture can be a convenient option for those who want to avoid the discomfort and inconvenience of being without teeth during the healing period. They also offer cosmetic benefits, as you can maintain your smile and facial structure while waiting for your permanent dentures to be made. Once your mouth has fully healed, your immediate dentures will be replaced with permanent dentures that are custom-made to fit your mouth.

As with any dental procedure or oral surgery, there are some risks associated with immediate dentures. These include infection, irritation of the gums, and difficulty adjusting to wearing the dentures. However, your dentist can help minimize these risks and provide guidance on how to care for your dentures.
Your dentist can help determine if an immediate denture is a good option for you based on your individual needs and goals. They’ll assess your oral health and discuss your treatment options with you, including alternative treatments such as partial dentures, complete dentures, or dental implants.
Immediate dentures may feel a bit uncomfortable at first, as your mouth adjusts to the shape of the new prosthesis. However, your dentist can make adjustments to ensure they fit properly and are comfortable to wear.
