The immediate prosthesis may be the most advantageous solution for a first dental prosthesis. The biggest advantage is that you can put it in the mouth as soon as natural teeth are extracted.
It is essential that your denture be designed by your denturologist before extracting one or more of your teeth to ensure maximum comfort.
Several advantages are associated with choosing an immediate dental prosthesis, including better protection of the oral tissues, less bleeding and a uniform healing. The prosthesis will also help you to pronounce and chew better. The transition between your natural teeth and your prosthesis will be done more smoothly.
It is best to adopt certain habits for the maintenance and hygiene of your dentures.
- Clean the prosthesis after each meal to prevent tartar build-up. To preserve the shine of the prosthesis, use a non-abrasive toothpaste.
- Remove the prosthesis every night and soak it in a cleaning solution overnight.
- Brush your gums and tongue with a soft bristle brush.
- Plan an annual visit to your denturist to clean your prosthesis and check your oral tissues.
