One of our highly specialized denturists will assess your current dental situation and determine if removing any natural teeth is necessary. We will then refer you to a dentist for x-rays and further assessment of the health of your natural teeth.
After deciding to get an immediate denture, impressions will be taken. The new teeth will be chosen, and tried in your mouth if possible. Once the look of the teeth has been decided, our denturists will begin the fabrication of your immediate denture.
At this stage, your teeth will be extracted, either partially or completely, depending on your treatment plan. After surgery, the immediate denture may need to be adjusted to your mouth. Typically, dental extractions and the insertion of the denture are done during the same appointment.
Your gums and bone will heal and change drastically in the first year. During this year the dentures will become loose and ill-fitting. Your denturist will place a temporary material inside the denture to allow it to fit better, while you continue to heal. This may need to happen multiple times.
If you are in any pain please call the clinic and book an adjustment. Adjustments are included for the first year. It is highly recommended to remove and brush your dentures and gums at least twice daily. After one year your bone will be fully healed and your dentures will be permanently refitted to your gums.
Here are some things you should do after your dental surgery for the wounds to heal properly, and to help the dentures be as healthy for you as long as possible.
Immediate dentures are a great option for those who have undergone dental surgery or extractions and want to protect their gums and jawbone as they heal.
If you do not want to go without teeth while waiting for traditional dentures, immediate surgical dentures can provide the function you need right away.
Immediate surgical dentures do not have to be permanent and can be replaced once your gums and jawbone have fully healed. They can serve as a great temporary solution until traditional or implant dentures can be fitted. This will allow for the looks of the denture to be custom tailored to your exact wants and needs.
