An immediate denture may be the best solution when complete extraction 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.
First, we will make 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.
In most cases, we have no way of checking the fit of the denture prior to extraction. Aesthetic compromises may have to be made is some cases to compensate for inadequate space or structural concerns.
Take care 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. You will need to use temporary linings or tissue conditioners to create an optimal fit. These 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.
