Immediate Dentures

At San Antonio Smile Pros, Dr. Fawzi Hijazi and his team don’t think you should live a day without teeth, which is why we offer immediate dentures. Immediate dentures are partial or complete dentures that can be worn immediately after tooth extraction.

Our Approach to Immediate Dentures

A common fear among patients is the idea of feeling embarrassed immediately after dental extraction. A misconception is that patients must wait several weeks or months for their gums to heal and for their fresh set of dentures to be fabricated. Because we have an on-site dental laboratory, Dr. Hijazi and his team can offer life-like same-day dentures designed to duplicate your smile’s natural color, shape, and arrangement.

The Basics

Getting immediate dentures involve a few trips to our Hildebrand dental office. During your initial consultation, Dr. Hijazi will carefully measure your upper and lower jaws and take note of the shape, color, and composition of your natural teeth. Then, he’ll take a digital impression to create a replica of your natural smile and hand off these impressions to our on-site dental lab.

After a quick turnaround from our dental lab, a San Antonio Smile Pros team member will call you for dental extraction and immediate denture placement and fitting.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do my immediate dentures not fit as well anymore?

After your gums have healed, your same-day dentures might not fit well. When this happens, we suggest scheduling an appointment at San Antonio Smile Pros for relining and refitting.

Why do I feel sore with new dentures?

The wearer might take several weeks to get used to a new denture because the facial muscles must learn to hold it in place. Also, you might have sore spots or bite marks on your cheeks, tongue, and other soft tissues as you learn how to live with your new dentures.

How do I learn how to eat with dentures?

We suggest starting slow and being patient with yourself because learning how to eat with your new dentures will take a little training and time. Start with soft foods sliced into tiny pieces. Chew slowly with both sides of your mouth to prevent dental appliance tipping. As you become familiar with your new dentures, you should be able to return to your regular diet.

Will my speech return to normal after dentures?

Practice makes perfect. Therefore, we suggest practicing speaking and reading aloud in the comfort of your own home.
