Immediate Dentures may be recommended to avoid the situation of being without teeth during the healing process after teeth have been extracted. This involves taking impressions of your mouth while your natural teeth are still present. Using this technique we are able to fabricate a denture in the likeness of your natural teeth, or make any necessary modifications you may wish. Once your natural teeth are extracted, your immediate denture is then inserted.
Things you should know about immediate dentures
Since we are unable to try-in the denture prior to extracting your teeth, certain aesthetic compromises may be necessary. This doesn't present any significant problems, and the results are normally quite good. It is important to follow the postoperative instructions carefully.
As healing occurs, the oral tissues recede so denture adjustments may be required. Follow-up appointments with our clinic are necessary. To maintain the best fit and comfort, a temporary liner or tissue conditioner may be placed in the denture. During the next few months, bone and gum tissue will probably continue to shrink to some degree; however, the rate of change decreases with time. This is a natural occurrence, which is to be expected. After the healing process is complete, either a new permanent full denture(s) will be made or your denture(s) will be relined or rebased to ensure the most comfortable fit possible.
