Can patients get immediate dentures at StarBrite Dental?
When patients deal with excessive decay or they have experienced the advanced stages of periodontal disease, they may realize that their smile has suffered. When tooth decay is severe enough, it may require that the tooth be extracted by a dental professional. Periodontal disease can result in the loss of teeth, as well as trauma and injury. Whatever the reason for tooth loss, patients need to speak to a professional about the restoration options available to them to improve the function and beauty of their smiles.
Dr. Munira Lokhandwala of Fremont, CA’s StarBrite Dental can help patients in repairing their smile, no matter how extensive the damage. Her practice offers immediate dentures for patients who have a severely damaged smile.
Immediate dentures are placed as soon as the remaining teeth have been extracted. The entire process, from extractions to dentures, is completed in one visit. By doing this, patients can dramatically reduce their risk of infections while also facilitating faster healing.
Before the teeth are removed, Dr. Munira Lokhandwala of StarBrite Dental will complete impressions to fabricate the immediate dentures. The extractions are completed and the dentures are placed immediately. Patients are encouraged to wear these dentures at all times during the healing process as they can act as a bandage and avoid the need for sutures. After the mouth has healed from the extractions, patients can speak to Dr. Munira Lokhandwala about solutions that are more permanent.
Immediate dentures are a wonderful way to restore the smile immediately after teeth are extracted to help transition into full dentures while also helping the smile heal faster. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala of StarBrite Dental works closely with patients in and around the Fremont, CA community who are interested in maintaining a beautiful, fully functional smile with restorative dentistry.
