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 no way of checking the fit of the denture in your mouth prior to extraction.  Esthetic compromises may have to be made is some cases to compensate for inadequate space or structural concerns.

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 will be required to create an optimal fit and may need to be adjusted or replaced a number of times during the healing period. A permanent reline will be required to ensure a comfortable and an exact fit after you have completed the healing process.

In cases where multiple teeth are removed and there is a considerable change in the final shape of the ridge after healing is complete, an immediate denture is not acceptable for long term use and an added cost for a new denture needs to be considered.  We have years of experience and do our best to avoid this when ever possible.
