Immediate dentures are complete dentures or partial dentures that are inserted on the same day, immediately following the removal of natural teeth. When you must completely extract your remaining teeth, immediate dentures are a solution. They help you avoid the uncomfortable and embarrassing experience of being without teeth. An impression is made of your existing teeth and gums prior to the extraction surgery and is used as working models for the construction of your new dentures.
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT IMMEDIATE DENTURES
During the healing period, postoperative instruction from the denturist must be followed carefully. Your gums and bone recede to a much smaller size, because of the tooth sockets closing. Regular check-ups and maintenance to ensure ideal healing are required. At the completion of the healing period, a permanent reline or a new denture may be constructed to ensure a comfortable and an exact fit.
