denture may be the best solution when complete extractions 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.
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.
What you should know about immediate dentures
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 an optimal fit and
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.
