Which temporary cheap false teeth can one use before going in for denture surgery ?

Hello, my father is receiving oral surgery soon in order to make way for dentures. He was hoping to find some sort of temporary cheap false teeth he could use while he waits for said dentures in order to be able to speak and smile properly. they wouldnt have to bee too comfortable, but at the same time i don t think novelty items are the way to go. does anyone have any ideas? sincerely, Greg

Hi Greg,
Usually patients who are undergoing full mouth extractions or major surgical procedures that require healing for longer periods are provided with Temporary dentures/ Immediate dentures. These dentures are placed in the mouth directly after the remaining teeth are extracted. This approach is utilized when a person does not want to be without any teeth for several months. It also helps for the extraction tooth sockets to heal while a denture is fabricated.
These Immediate dentures are the first denture of a two-denture process and should be considered as a temporary interim prosthesis until a second refined and esthetically enhanced denture may be constructed after complete healing of the sockets.
