Temporary dentures (false teeth) are dentures that can be fitted straight after your teeth have been removed – also called immediate dentures. The snap on teeth are perfect to help you carry on as normal whilst waiting for your new permanent dentures to be fitted.
It might be wise to speak to your dentist to help ease your mouth into wearing a denture, By reducing the pressure on your remaining natural teeth when eating, temporary dentures will let your mouth heal without you needing to make any major changes to your lifestyle.
It is completely normal for your mouth, tongue and gums to feel slightly uncomfortable with any new, temporary or permanent denture in your mouth at first. Your dentist can offer you advice if any discomfort or problems persist, as well as suggest products that should aid the bedding-in process – such as a denture adhesive – or make adjustments if needed.
Your new denture will be moulded once your gums have completely healed – usually around six to eight weeks later.
