Immediate Dentures

An immediate denture may be the best solution when complete extractions of your remaining teeth is unavoidable. An immediate denture will allow you to avoid the embarrassment of living without teeth. We will begin the preparation for this procedure before your teeth are extracted.

The first step is taking impressions of your existing teeth and gums to create accurate duplicates for placement after tooth removal. At your extraction appointment, your immediate dentures are inserted creating a natural smile you can be proud of.

What you should know about immediate dentures

In most cases, we have have try in appointments checking the fit of the denture in your mouth prior to extraction. Adjustments of the denture may have to be made after delivery of your new smile in order to make them even more comfortable to wear long term.

After Extraction

Great care should be taken to follow all postoperative instructions.Your gums and bone will recede after extraction, and regular check-ups and maintenance will monitor healing and reduce problems. Temporary linings or tissue conditioners may be required to create an optimal fit during the healing period. A permanent reline will be performed usually six months later to ensure a comfortable and an exact fit after you have completed the healing process.
