IMMEDIATE DENTURES

Introduction to Immediate or Surgical Dentures

FULL DENTURES CRITERIA FOR IMMEDIATE DENTURES

When complete extractions of your remaining teeth become unavoidable, an immediate denture is a solution. This process will help you avoid the embarrassment of being without teeth. Your denturist will initiate this procedure before your teeth are extracted. 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. From your models the denturist is able to copy and construct a denture, duplicating your original teeth with improvements to your appearance, if you so wish. At your extraction appointment, your immediate dentures are inserted avoiding the embarrassment of having no teeth during your healing period.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT IMMEDIATE DENTURES

Denturists in most cases have no way of trying the denture(s) in before your extractions are completed. In some cases, esthetic compromises may have to be made in favor of structural integrity or limited space. During the healing period, postoperative instruction from the Surgeon and 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. Temporary linings or tissue conditioners will be required to ensure a positive fit. This procedure may be repeated a number of times based on your physiological rate of healing. 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. Your denturist will advise you of the procedure that best meets your specific needs.
