An immediate denture may be the best solution when complete extractions of your remaining teeth is unavoidable. An immediate denture will allow you maintain function and esthetics. 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.
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.
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 a reasonable fit and it will need to be adjusted a few times during the healing period. A permanent denture reline, or a new denture, will be required to ensure a comfortable and an exact fit after you have completed the healing process.
