Temporary Dentures
A provisional denture is used to accustom the patient to a new artificial substitute for missing natural teeth. It is also used for reasons of esthetics & function. Nowadays you don’t have to leave a dental practice without teeth, regardless of whether you're missing one single tooth or a set of teeth. Today, dentists can immediately and easily create dentures in their offices. Such provisional solutions can protect teeth from thermal sensitivity for about a week. A vital tooth, which is not provisionally protected, risks damage that can eventually require root treatment or other corrective therapy. Occasionally, when the provisional denture has to be worn for a longer period of time, an actual dental technician will manufacture the denture rather than a dentist. In this case, it is considered a refined provisional solution. These dentures are more stable and can be worn for a longer period than dentures made by a dentist. Thanks to this temporary denture you don’t need to walk around with a tooth gap while you wait for your actual denture. Watch this video to see how a temporary denture is made!
