An immediate denture may be the best solution when complete extractions of your remaining teeth are unavoidable. An immediate denture will allow you to avoid the embarrassment of living without teeth. We 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 beautiful and life-like dentures for placement after tooth removal. At your extraction appointment, your immediate dentures are inserted creating a natural smile you can be proud of.
Great care should be taken to follow all postoperative instructions. Your gums and bone will recede after extraction. 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 during the healing period. A permanent reline will be required several months after extractions to ensure a comfortable and an exact fit after you have completed the healing process.
