An immediate denture may be the best solution when a complete extraction of your remaining teeth is unavoidable. An immediate denture will allow you immediate delivery of your denture following extractions. 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 the immediate denture. There is no way of checking the fit of the denture in your mouth prior to extraction. Esthetic compromises may have to be made in some cases to compensate for inadequate spaces or structures. However, immediate dentures will allow for faster healing and will facilitate the transition into a permanent set of dentures.
Care should be taken to follow all post-operative instructions after extractions to allow for proper healing. Your gums and bone will resorb after extractions, and regular check-ups and maintenance to monitor healing and check dentures is recommended. Temporary linings and adjustments to immediate dentures is commonly required during the healing period. Typically, waiting 4-6 months is recommended to a achieve adequate healing before beginning the fabrication of your permanent set of dentures.
