Same-day dentures are a great option for many people who want an immediate solution to dental issues involving missing teeth. But are same-day dentures the right option for you? The best way to find out is by scheduling a consultation in our comfortable Vancouver WA office. During the consultation, we’ll examine your teeth, gums, and jawbone, and answer any questions you have.

To give you a general idea of whether immediate dentures will work for you, we’ve put together this article that discusses some of the considerations that help inform the decision.

How Do You Know If Same-Day Dentures Are Right for You?

Same-day dentures are an ideal solution for individuals with good overall oral health despite some tooth loss. They are an excellent choice for those seeking a fast solution, providing the convenience of acquiring a full set of teeth in just one appointment.

While same-day dentures offer a swift and appealing solution for many, they might not be suitable for everyone. Here are several reasons why you might not be the ideal candidate for this expedited dental procedure:

  • Complex Dental Challenges: Facing severe gum disease or untreated infections in your mouth? These issues can prevent you from getting same-day dentures.
  • Custom Fit Needs: Craving that perfect, personalized fit? Same-day dentures are all about getting you an excellent solution quickly. Traditional dentures might be a better choice if you’re looking for a perfect fit and feel.
  • Insufficient Bone Support: For dentures that stay put, you need a solid foundation of jaw bone. Lacking in bone density? Procedures like bone grafting could be necessary steps before you’re denture-ready.
  • Unrealistic Expectations: Same-day dentures can sometimes require adjustments before they’re exactly right. You may need a follow-up visit or two to reach the ideal fit and feel.
  • Health Issues: If you’re dealing with conditions like uncontrolled diabetes, autoimmune diseases, or a track record of dental woes, same-day dentures could pose extra hurdles, from healing challenges to infection risks.

If you don’t fall into any of these categories, there’s a good chance that same-day dentures will work for you. If not, we offer a variety of denture options and we’re here to help you find the perfect match. Visit our Dentures page to explore and learn more about finding your ideal fit.

Does Dental Insurance Cover Same-Day Dentures?

Many patients want to know if their dental insurance will cover the cost of same-day dentures. Unfortunately, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. Dental insurance coverage for same-day dentures can vary depending on your specific insurance plan and provider. Some dental insurance plans may partially cover the cost of same-day dentures, while others may not cover them at all.

If you have questions about your insurance, we recommend contacting your provider directly. They can help you understand coverage details regarding dentures, including same-day options. Or feel free to give us a call with any questions – we can help navigate insurance benefits and provide information on potential out-of-pocket expenses.
