Can I Use Temporary Dentures Before Using Permanent Dentures?
Hello doctor, have my front teeth pulled out, can I make temporary dentures while waiting for the permanent denture to be installed. Thank you
Hello Hadi, Thank you for the question.
Have you consulted the dentist? If you experience health problems with teeth such as cavities or broken injuries due to injury, the dentist will usually do an examination of your teeth first to assess whether other measures can be taken to save the teeth (tooth conservation) because permanent teeth in adults cannot grow back. if tooth extraction is done. However, if for one reason or another the teeth can no longer be saved, the doctor will suggest to take a tooth extraction. Tooth that has been pulled out, in addition to interfere with appearance, can also cause problems in digesting food. Therefore, doctors can recommend the use of dentures, bridges, or dental implants to replace teeth that have been removed. Usually the actions mentioned above require some time because the manufacturing of dental replacements requires several processes. The dentist will first assess the condition of your dental health. If your teeth are in good condition, the doctor will do dental molding. These dental molds will later be sent to the laboratory so that dentures or bridges can be made according to the position of your teeth. While waiting for the process of making a replacement tooth (dentures or bridges) is complete, usually the dentist can provide temporary dentures to you so that this condition does not interfere with your appearance. Please consult further with your dentist.
