An immediate denture may be the best solution when complete extractions of your remaining teeth is unavoidable. An immediate denture will allow you to avoid the embarrassment of living without teeth. We will begin the preparation for this procedure before your teeth are extracted.
The first step is taking impressions of your existing teeth and gums to create accurate duplicates for placement after tooth removal. At your extraction appointment, your immediate dentures are inserted into your mouth creating a natural smile you can be proud of.
In most cases, we have no way of checking the fit of the denture in your mouth prior to extraction. So Dr. Simonsky will have to see you several times during the healing phase to help you achieve proper fit and comfort.
Great care should be taken to follow all postoperative instructions. Your gums and bone will recede after extraction, and regular check-ups and maintenance will monitor healing and reduce problems. Temporary linings or tissue conditioners will be required to create an optimal fit and may need to be adjusted or replaced a number of times during the healing period. A permanent denture reline will be required in about 6 months to ensure a comfortable and an exact fit after you have completed the initial healing process.
- The dental team at Dr. Robert Simonsky Dentistry will advise you of the procedure that best suits your individual needs.
- Permanent laboratory relines following initial healing are additional services that will have separate fees.
- Please talk to Dr. Simonsky and our staff about the many benefits of an immediate denture.
