Same-Day Dentures in Hanover
New patients often come to us with concerns about whether they can get teeth pulled and dentures on the same day. We are always pleased to let them know that this is possible for most patients with the help of immediate dentures. Also known as same-day dentures, these dentures are a temporary option for patients to wear following their tooth removal surgery.
Immediate Dentures Offer a Number of Advantages
The dental tissues need time to heal before their permanent restoration can be worn, but same-day dentures mean they never have to go a day without their teeth!
Following tooth extraction surgery, your gums and dental tissues need time to heal—it takes approximately six months for the tissues to heal adequately. During this time, immediate dentures not only help ensure our patients aren’t left without teeth while they wait, but they also help preserve the integrity of the mouth and support the dental structures.

- They keep you smiling confidently
- Same-day dentures help support your cheeks until your final dentures are placed
- Help maintain the integrity of the dental structures
- Keeps swelling to a minimum following tooth extraction surgery
- Immediate dentures can minimize discomfort and bleeding after dental surgery
Frequently Asked Questions
Are same-day dentures permanent?
Same-day dentures are meant to be temporary, worn for up to six months while the dental tissues heal following tooth extraction surgery. Then, a final restoration can be made to replace your immediate dentures.
How long does it take to make immediate dentures?
They’re called immediate dentures because they can be placed immediately following tooth extractions. Fabricating the actual dentures, however, usually begins at least a week or two before your tooth extraction surgery.
