What Are Immediate Dentures?

 

Immediate dentures are a type of complete or partial denture that can be used to give you a complete smile the very same day that your teeth are extracted. There is no need to wait for the extraction sites to heal (you would generally need to wait 4-6 weeks after extractions to begin the fabrication of conventional dentures). An impression is made of your existing teeth and gums prior to the extractions and is then used as a working model for the construction of your new dentures.

Most people who are good candidates for conventional dentures can also get immediate dentures. With that being said, certain health conditions and oral health problems could make immediate dentures contraindicated for some individuals. The best way to know if immediate dentures are right for you is to consult with one of our denturists. Call us today to book your free consultation!

Why Are Immediate Dentures Needed?

 

Immediate dentures have seen considerable growth in popularity because they offer quite a few benefits over conventional dentures:

  • You will not have to go out in public without teeth while waiting for your tooth extraction sites to heal.

  • Your immediate denture will protect your gums after the extraction, reducing bleeding.

  • You'll be able to get used to speaking with dentures right away, rather than having to establish new speech patterns without teeth and then again with conventional dentures.

  • You'll have a quicker and easier time learning to chew with dentures, allowing you to enjoy all of your favourite foods sooner.

At Postings Denture Clinics Ltd., we know that a set of immediate dentures is one of the best solutions when complete extractions of your remaining teeth are unavoidable. It would be uncomfortable for you to live without teeth while healing takes places, which can take weeks. The gums and jaw will change their shape as they heal, so it will be important to visit your denturist on a regular basis to have an immediate denture adjusted.

After-Effects of Immediate Dentures

 

During the first few months after your extractions, your gums and the underlying bone will be healing and shrinking, likely causing your dentures to loosen. We can place temporary soft-liners in your dentures to improve their fit. After approximately 10-12 months, your healing should be complete and your dentures will need to be permanently relined or rebased in order to obtain an optimal fit.

 

Are Immediate Dentures Beneficial?

 

Immediate dentures have both advantages and disadvantages:

 

Advantages:

  • Fitted in your mouth immediately after extractions, which helps maintain aesthetics and aids in healing.
  • You will never need to appear in public without teeth.
  • It is easier to duplicate the shape, colour and arrangement of your natural teeth while some are still present in your mouth.

Disadvantages:

  • An immediate denture may not fit as well as one made after your gums have healed.
  • The cost of relining the denture or replacement final dentures makes it a slightly more expensive option.
  • It is not possible to predict how much your gums will shrink, and whether your dentures will need replacing as they loosen, or whether they can be fixed by relining or rebasing.
  • You cannot try the denture before your teeth are extracted. Therefore, you can only see how they will look in a wax model (not in your mouth).
