Flexible Dentures Vs Immediate Dentures

Dental dentures have become essential devices for people who need to replace their natural teeth. While this category of people is mainly made up of senior citizens, there are many younger people out there who rely on false teeth. There are several types of dentures available on the market, this blog post will take a closer look at two of them: flexible dentures and immediate dentures.

Flexible dentures

What are they?

Flexible dentures are basically partial dentures that are made from a different material than partial dentures. Most flexible dentures are made from a thin thermoplastic like nylon as compared to partial dentures that are made from thicker acrylic material. There are no visible clasps on your teeth when you smile with these dentures, the design of your device is case sensitive. Get in touch with us today to learn more!

What are their benefits?

If you’re still new to wearing false teeth, you may find that using flexible dentures is much more comfortable than using partial ones. Unlike their partial counterparts, flexible dentures don’t use any metal parts and feel a lot more natural.

Are they right for me?

It depends on what you need. If you’ve been using partial dentures with great discomfort, then you may want to consider switching to flexible dentures. If you’d also like artificial teeth that feel natural, flexible dentures are a good choice to consider.

 

Immediate dentures

What are they?

Immediate dentures are complete or partial dentures that are inserted on the same day, immediately following the removal of your natural teeth. Because of their immediate insertion, these traditional dentures will require more adjustments as bones and gums shrink over time after natural teeth have been removed.

What are their benefits?

If you’re about to have your natural teeth removed, immediate dentures will ensure that you don’t go a single day without that smile you’ve fallen in love with. They allow you to replace your teeth immediately after losing them and undergo the healing period while admiring your new chompers.

 

Are they right for me?

Are you disgusted or fearful at the thought of having to go a day without teeth? Immediate dentures are the perfect fit for you! Albeit their higher cost compared to other dentures, they provide you with peace of mind after you’ve had your teeth removed.
