To avoid the situation of being without teeth, your denture care provider will implement the immediate denture technique.
This involves taking impressions of your mouth while your natural teeth are still present. The denture care provider is 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.
Things you should know about immediate dentures
Since the denture care provider is unable to try-in the denture prior to extracting your teeth, certain aesthetic compromises may be necessary. This doesn’t present any significant problems, and the results are normally quiet good.
It is important to follow the postoperative instructions of your denture care provider or oral surgeon very carefully.
As healing occurs, the oral tissues recede so denture adjustments may be required. Follow-up appointments with your denture care provider are necessary. To maintain the best fit and comfort, a temporary liner or tissue conditioner should be placed in the denture; and changed periodically. 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.
Your denture care provider will recommend the option that best meets your particular needs.
