Immediate Dentures

An immediate denture is the best option for tooth replacement after having your remaining teeth extracted.  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. We spend several appointments perfecting the tooth positioning and require your approval of the esthetics prior to completion. At your extraction appointment, your immediate dentures are inserted creating a natural smile you can be proud of.

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.

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 following healing.
