When is an immediate denture used? To avoid the situation of being without teeth, we use the immediate denture technique. This involves taking impressions of your mouth while your natural teeth are still present. We are then able to fabricate a denture in the likeness of your natural teeth, or make any necessary modifications you may wish. When your natural teeth are extracted, your immediate denture is then inserted. In this technique, you have avoided having to go without any teeth while you go through the healing process.
Advanced Technique Denture Centre individually crafts each immediate denture, using only the best materials and techniques to ensure an accurate fit, optimal function, and natural aesthetics.
Things you should know about immediate dentures. Since we are unable to try-in the denture prior to extracting your teeth, certain esthetic compromises may be necessary. This doesn't present any significant problems, and the results are normally quite good. It is important to follow the postoperative instructions that we give to you and the instructions of your Oral Surgeon very carefully. As healing occurs, the bone and gum tissue recede so denture adjustments may be required. Follow-up appointments at our office are necessary. To maintain the best fit and comfort, a temporary liner or tissue conditioner will be placed in the denture. During the next few months, bone and gum tissue will probably continue to shrink to some degree; however, the rate of change decreases with time. This is a natural occurrence, which is to be expected. After the healing process is complete, your denture(s) will be relined to ensure the most comfortable fit possible.
