Socket Preservation Procedure
The socket preservation process typically involves the following steps:
Tooth Extraction: The tooth that needs to be extracted is taken out in the initial step. This is followed by Cleaning and Debridement.
Bone Graft Placement: The socket is subsequently filled with bone graft material. Depending on the particular situation and the dentist’s discretion, the graft material may be applied as granules, a putty-like substance, or a pre-formed block. To completely fill the socket, the graft material is carefully stuffed inside. This is followed by Graft Stabilization and Suturing.
Post-operative Care: The patient receives post-operative instructions, such as recommendations for pain management, oral hygiene, and food, after the socket preservation operation. To speed up the healing process, the patient could also be given antibiotics and/or painkillers.
The patient may proceed with the placement of dental implants or other restorative procedures as planned once the wound has healed sufficiently. To track the healing process and guarantee the best outcomes, it’s crucial to schedule routine follow-up appointments with our experts.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Same-Day Denture FAQs
The main difference between Same-Day dentures and conventional dentures is that Same-Day dentures are only meant to be a temporary solution for missing teeth.
Same-Day dentures, otherwise referred to as “Immediate dentures” are placed in your mouth the same day as your teeth are extracted. They will serve as a temporary set of dentures until the healing process is complete and you can then wear your permanent dentures.
Immediate dentures should be kept in for 24-48 hours after your tooth extraction surgery, without taking them out. Taking your Same-Day dentures out during this period can make it difficult to put them back in due to the swelling.
After the initial 48 hour period, you should continue to wear your dentures but you’ll be able to remove them for cleaning and to give your gums a rest.
The time it takes to make a set of temporary dentures varies from one dental clinic to the next. However, it will typically take a week or two to create your Immediate denture at most clinic. This may involve several trips to the dentist while they’re being made.
Since they are made before your tooth extraction procedure, your Same-Day dentures will be ready to go when you get your teeth out.
It’s important to note that Same-Day dentures aren’t necessary, however, they do make the tooth extraction process much simpler.
If you’re only getting a few teeth extracted, your dentist might not recommend Immediate dentures. However, if you’re doing a full extraction, your dentist will likely suggest Same-Day dentures. If you have a strong gag-reflex, Same-Day dentures might not be right for you.
Same-Day dentures, or Immediate dentures are designed to only be temporary. They are typically worn for a maximum of 6-8 months until the arrival of a permanent denture.
It’s important to note that your temporary dentures will likely need to be relined throughout the healing process to make your denture more comfortable. Although it’s a temporary solution, Same-Day dentures can last just as long as conventional or permanent dentures – we don’t advise on long-term use of Same-Day dentures.
The main benefit of getting Same-Day dentures is that they’re quick and convenient. Immediate dentures protect your gum tissues and also help control bleeding.
One of the biggest reasons patients opt for getting Same-Day dentures is to avoid walking around in public with no teeth. A set of Immediate dentures will help you keep the function of your teeth to eat, speak, and smile confidently while you’re waiting for your permanent dentures.
