Are immediate dentures in Etobicoke, ON right for you?

When you choose Stonegate Denture in Etobicoke, ON, you won’t have to wait for comfort, ease in eating, and a lovely smile. We understand the challenges of living without teeth while waiting for a new appliance. That is why we offer immediate dentures. These specially designed dentures are worn during the transition period, after teeth are extracted and before you are ready for a permanent denture.

How is treatment with immediate dentures different?

In most cases, if your teeth have been gone for quite some time, then a permanent denture can be placed right away. This includes people who are replacing an old worn out, uncomfortable, or broken denture. However, it is different for patients who have loose or damaged teeth that require extraction.

It takes several weeks for the gums to heal, during which time subtle changes in the contours of your mouth will take place. There is usually a gap of about 4 to 6 months between extractions, and when we are able to place a permanent denture. To bridge this gap, an immediate denture is designed and created in advance. You can begin wearing it as soon as your teeth are extracted. Once healing is complete, the immediate denture will be replaced with a permanent denture.

Are immediate dentures right for you?

The most significant advantage of immediate dentures is that you will not have to spend weeks or months without teeth. This may be a good option for patients who:

  • Have extensive decay, gum disease, or other oral health problems that require extraction
  • Want a fast way to restore their smiles
  • Have concerns about comfort or ability to eat without teeth
  • Don’t want to be seen in public without teeth

What to expect

The process begins with a free consultation. If you opt for immediate dentures, we will take impressions, and other diagnostics prior to extraction. This data is used to create an immediate denture, so it is ready when you are. The immediate denture is placed immediately after the extraction of your natural teeth. 

With immediate dentures you don’t have to be without teeth while your gums are healing. However, during the first six months, bone and gums will shrink over time significantly. Therefore we will temporarily re-fit the immediate denture with a healing liner to prevent any discomfort caused by a loose denture. Followed by the healing period (4 to 6 month post extraction), you have an option to either fabricate a new permanent denture or to reline and refit the immediate denture. 

If you think that immediate dentures may be right for you, call us at 416-878-9353 and arrange a free consultation.

Monica is so calm and so patient. She went above and beyond to help me fix my broken dentures when I needed them the most. She is understanding, compassionate and super kind. Monica was able to complete a difficult job within a couple of hours and provided me with the best possible service. She took the time to listen to my concerns and made me feel very comfortable. Because of her, I was able to continue with my original plans and travel abroad. I am so thankful for everything that she has done. She is truly amazing and one of a kind! If you are reading this, I would like to say....Thank-you so much Monica. I really appreciate all of your help.

Monica and Angela are wonderful people to deal with. They make you feel comfortable considering having dentures made can be an embarrassing experience. Monica listens to your concerns from the initial fitting until the final denture is made. The dentures look natural and felt comfortable, it's close to having a new set of real teeth without breaking the pocket. It took several visits to get the right fit but Monica always puts you at ease and is very professional, you feel comfortable discussing your expectations on how the denture should look and feel. I would recommend their clinic to anyone considering to have dentures made. Five star service from their Denture Clinic.

I agree 100% with what Rob Elst wrote in his review. Stanegate Denture Clinic is the best place to get your new dentures. I had to get new dentures and based on Monica recommendation I picked a new set (top and bottom) today. I have to say new dentures are just fantastic. No more using messy glue but what is most important Monica was able to produce is exceptional fit. No often now days one is able to find place like Stonegate clinic with professional and friendly staff which manage to make you feel welcome and relax. Thank you very much Monica and Angela!
