In some extreme circumstances where removal of all teeth becomes unavoidable, an immediate denture is a solution. This process will help you avoid the embarrassment of being without teeth until a permanent denture is available.
It is often a stop-gap solution, as your gums need time to heal before a permanent denture is fitted. To prevent the embarrassment of missing teeth during this time, an immediate denture is the answer. You’ll be able to eat and speak as normal while your gums heal, and you’ll get used to wearing a denture.
An immediate denture requires planning. Before we extract your teeth, we’ll take a series of impressions to determine the precise shade, size and shape of your teeth. Then, we take a bite registration to get a proper vertical dimension. This tells us how open or closed your mouth will be after we fit your denture. We’ll make your denture in time for your appointment so you can wear it as soon as you’ve had your extractions.
