Immediate Dentures

An immediate denture may be the best solution when complete extractions of your remaining teeth is unavoidable. An immediate denture will allow you to leave the office following full mouth extractions with an esthetic denture that allows for some function. We will begin the preparation for this procedure before your teeth are extracted.

The first step is taking a scan of your existing teeth and gums to create accurate dentures for placement after tooth removal. At your extraction appointment, your immediate dentures are inserted creating a natural smile. Then the tissue is allowed to heal for several weeks, sometimes months, before a definitive denture is fabricated.

After Extraction

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 denture reline will be required to ensure a comfortable and an exact fit after you have completed the healing process.
