You likely have worked hard over the years to keep your teeth healthy and in good condition. However, for one reason or another, you may need some or all of your teeth removed or replaced. Partial or complete dentures may very well be what you need. Something you may not be aware of, though, is that many dental offices have a significant waiting period between the time their patients’ teeth are removed, or when they have a consultation for dentures, and the time they actually receive their dentures- sometimes several weeks later.
At Las Cruces Dental Solutions, we offer a solution to this inconvenience- next day dentures. We realize that it can be an adjustment to get used to having dentures, but we want the transition to be as smooth as possible for you. After you have a consultation and are fitted with us, we’ll work closely with our lab so you can get your dentures ‘tomorrow’- not a few weeks from tomorrow. Here are a few benefits to keep in mind as to why you will want your dentures sooner rather than later.
1.) Your smile will be ‘photo-ready’.
A person who has a considerable wait for their dentures to arrive, may experience awkwardness or embarrassment around other people. Whether you are out shopping, talking to a neighbor, or taking pictures with your family, you will no doubt appreciate having received your dentures right away. We don’t want you to feel uncomfortable around others. Rather, we want you to be confident with your smile, whenever you feel inclined to use it.
2.) It will be easier to eat normally.
After having extractions or certain procedures done, it is likely you will have to temporarily adjust what you eat. (For instance, you may be limited to softer foods for a short time.) With next day dentures, your teeth will be ready to eat normal foods when you are.
Admittedly, eating with dentures can take some getting used to, but it is definitely easier to eat with these teeth than with no teeth. Receiving your dentures sooner will also give you more time to get accustomed to them being in your mouth, so it will be a smoother transition as you resume eating normal foods. On the other hand, if you have been missing one or more teeth for a while, getting partial or complete dentures as soon as possible will improve your ability to chew, and you will better enjoy your meals.
3.) You will speak clearly.
You may not have thought about this, but your teeth do affect your speech. Even though people may still be able to understand you if you are lacking some teeth, having dentures will ensure you sound as clear as possible when speaking, and you will not have to go through a period of time getting frustrated, repeating or trying to articulate your words unnecessarily.
Getting next-day dentures can benefit you. We don’t want your teeth to have to wait for quality care. Please call us for a consultation. We offer many dental services, along with flexible hours and discount savings.
