Your dentist open on Saturday and Sunday is prepared to work with you and your family to fulfill your needs with convenient hours and the latest treatment for your oral health.
What to Expect When Getting Flexible Dentures
You first have to undergo a denture fitting that includes:
- Tooth extraction. If needed, your dentist open on Saturday extracts your damaged teeth and provides instructions for the aftercare. Sometimes, a panoramic X-ray is needed for the tooth extraction and impression that guides the type and shape of your replacements.
- Your cosmetic dentist takes molds of your mouth to create a full set of flexible dentures or flexible partial dentures that comfortably fit your mouth. You’re fortunate to have found a cosmetic dentist who also is trained and experienced in general dentistry to take care of any other issues you may have as well.
- Bite molds. Your dentist uses wax blocks to ensure you bite comfortably. You may also be asked to choose the shape and color of your dentures.
- Wax models. Your dentures are then set in wax, giving you an idea of how your final dentures will look and work.
- After your dentures are ready, they’re fitted properly. You receive instructions on how to care for your false teeth.
During a same-day procedure, you may undergo oral surgery of your selected teeth, followed by the insertion of your immediate teeth — whether full flexible dentures or flexible partial dentures. You need to learn how to adapt to your same-day dentures after your teeth extraction. Flexible partial dentures, with bridgework supporting a number of artificial teeth, take some getting used to. Your top Yonkers dentist gives you advice and instructions on what to do and what not to do.
The Cost of Same-Day Dentures
Cheap same-day dentures don’t really explain the full benefits of same-day dentures. Same-day flexible dentures from Yonkers Dental Spa aren’t exactly inexpensive. But it’s very often the time of the appointments, the rush of the same-day procedures and the in-house creation of the dentures that you’re paying for when you request cheap same-day dentures.
And you may want to consider flexible partial dentures that typically cost less than full dentures. Partials are often a combination of acrylic material and a metal clasp that holds the replacement tooth or teeth in place. But they can come in various materials, from nylon to thermoplastic. Thermoplastic can be a more expensive option, but it looks and feels more natural.
Getting the Process Right
Before you can get same-day dentures, you may need four to five visits to your Yonkers general dentist, as well as appointments to fix any additional dental issues. For example, if you need immediate dentures, you may have a tooth extraction for your back teeth six to eight weeks before the denture fabrication phase. This allows your extraction to heal and receive a better-fitting denture that is fitted on the same day.
Getting the right fit makes all the difference. You may adjust to flexible dentures quickly, while someone else may need some time getting used to them. It can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks to get accustomed to your new flexible dentures. Your dentist can give you advice on how to make your flexible dentures more comfortable and how to ensure a proper fit every time.
Maintaining Your Dentures
You need to practice exceptional oral health care for your same-day dentures on a daily basis, just like you do for your natural teeth. A sonic cleaner and polish can keep them looking like new. You can also clean them effectively with a soft-bristled toothbrush and a cleaner (not toothpaste) under running water. Ask your Yonkers dental team for product recommendations.
Make it a habit not to sleep with your dentures in at night. When you take them out, you soak them in a special liquid or water at night because your dentures can get brittle if they dry out. Ask your dentist open Saturday and Sunday for the best products to keep your dentures in great condition so you can keep your winning smile intact.
