An immediate denture is a complete denture or partial denture inserted on the same day, immediately following the removal of natural teeth.
Benefit of Immediate Dentures
The main advantage of an immediate denture is that you avoid the embarrassment of being without teeth. Also, it is easier to match the shape, colour and arrangement of your natural teeth while some are still in remaining. An immediate denture allows you to chew better than without any or missing teeth as well as lessen facial distortion that can happen when teeth are removed.
After care is essential after teeth have been removed. Your gums and bone will recede after teeth have been extracted. It is important to see your denturist for maintenance to make any adjustments and monitor healing. As you heal, temporary liners are necessary to ensure a better fit of the denture. Temporary liners will need to be replaced a number of times while healing. After you have completed healing, a permanent reline will be needed to ensure a proper fit of the denture.
