What are Immediate Dentures?
The Immediate dentures are Removable dentures that are inserted on the same day that the remaining teeth are removed. The advantage of this technique is that you avoid having to live without your teeth while your gums and jawbone complete the healing process. They also serve as a bandage to control bleeding and protect gum tissue after the extractions of teeth.
The procedure involves taking impressions of your natural teeth while they are still present. After that, we are able to create a denture that is modeled from your natural teeth as well as make any necessary modifications you might want. After your natural teeth are extracted by your dentist, your immediate dentures are inserted by our denturist.
Now Immediate dentures are created with our new Digital denture technology which makes it possible to create them twice as fast with much higher precision that translates into comfort of your mouth.
What to Expect with Immediate Dentures
Certain esthetic compromises may be necessary due to the timing between teeth extractions and insertion of your new dentures due to patients not able to try the denture in your mouth for fit prior to extraction. It is very important that you carefully follow the post-operative instructions of your denturist and oral surgeon.
Denture adjustments may also be required as healing occurs. Your oral tissues will change, and we always recommend a follow-up appointment to check on the fit and to make sure that there are no first signs of infection present in the mouth following the extractions. A temporary liner, or tissue conditioner may be placed in the denture during the next few months due to the continual shrinking of bone and gum tissue and subsequent loosening of the denture. The rate of change will reduce over time — it is a natural occurrence and is to be expected. After the healing process is complete, either a new permanent full denture will be fabricated or your dentures will require to be relined or rebased, to ensure that you have the most comfortable fit.
