Bingham-Lester Dentistry offers same day denture to Gambrills patients
Many people avoid getting dentures due to how long it takes to receive them. That is no longer an issue now that same day dentures are offered by Dr. Vickii Bingham-Lester at Bingham-Lester Dentistry in Gambrills MD.
If teeth are badly decayed or have been damaged beyond repair, one of the options for tooth replacement is dentures. Dentures are false teeth that can easily be removed, but look like natural teeth to restore that beautiful smile you once enjoyed. Dentures benefit your overall health and appearance. There are two types of dentures:
- Complete Dentures- This type would be replacing all your teeth. In the past, you would have had all your teeth removed and then wait until healing was complete before receiving the new teeth. This process typically took 8 to 12 weeks. With same day dentures, the dentures are made in advance and they are placed immediately after tooth extraction.
- Partial Dentures- These are used when not all the natural teeth need to be extracted and they act as a bridge.
Dr. Bingham-Lester has found many benefits to same day dentures for her Gambrills area patients. The first is being able to leave the dental office immediately with teeth and never having to be without them. Another major benefit is when dentures are placed right after extraction, they help speed healing by protecting the tissue. Same day dentures also allow you to practice speaking clearly early in the process while healing is ongoing.
Getting dentures in Gambrills does not have to be a long process. With same day dentures, Dr. Bingham-Lester can restore your beautiful smile in just one day.
