When Is An Immediate Denture Used?
To avoid being without teeth, we will offer the immediate denture technique.
This involves taking impressions of your mouth while your natural teeth are still present.
We then fabricate a denture in the likeness of your natural teeth.
When your natural teeth are extracted, your immediate denture is then inserted.
By using this technique, you have avoided having to go without any teeth during the healing process.
Things You Should Know About Immediate Dentures
Since we are unable to try the denture prior to extracting your teeth, certain esthetic compromises may be necessary. Normally, there are no significant problems and we are able to achieve good results for most patients.
It is important to follow the postoperative instructions provided by the Ringrose Denture Clinic very carefully.
As healing occurs, the oral tissues recede so denture adjustments may be required. Follow-up appointments with us are necessary. To maintain the best fit and comfort, a temporary liner or tissue conditioner may 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, either a new permanent full denture(s) will be made or your denture(s) will be relined or rebased to ensure the most comfortable fit possible.
Ringrose Denture Clinic will recommend the option that best meets your particular needs.
