When is an Immediate Denture used?
When you have to have one or more teeth extracted, and you wish to avoid the situation of being without teeth while a denture is being made, we will implement the immediate denture technique.
Directly after your natural teeth are extracted, the immediate denture is placed. Using this technique, you avoid having missing teeth while you go through the healing process.
Thins you should know about Immediate Dentures
As healing occurs, your oral tissues recede(shrink) and denture adjustments may be required.
To maintain optimum comfort, a temporary liner or tissue conditioner may be placed in the denture. After the healing process is complete, either a new permanent denture will be made or your denture will be relined or rebased to ensure the most comfortable fit possible. We will recommend the option that best meets your individual needs.
