How Long After Having a Tooth Out Can a False One Be Fitted?

If you are in the process of losing a tooth or you have been told by your dentist that it is in your best interest that a tooth or your teeth have to come out, then you may be wondering how quickly you will be able to replace a missing tooth.

One of the options we can offer are known as immediate dentures. This is when you have your teeth extracted and immediately afterwards you are fitted with a denture, so you are not left with a gap for any period of time.

Relining The Immediate Denture

When you lose a tooth the area of the missing tooth will go through a natural healing process, where the site can change once the area has healed. Due to this natural process, the immediate denture that was fitted at the time of the extraction, will have been made to fit your mouth at that point of time. As changes occur in your mouth, the once well fitted immediate denture may start to not be as comfortable. This is when a denture reline will be required, so the denture is relined to fit your new measurements in your mouth.

Why Would I Want To Have An Immediate Denture?

One of the main benefits associated with this type of treatment is so your not left without any unsightly gaps in your mouth for a period of time. It will be explained at the free denture assessment that you will require a denture reline in the future to ensure your new denture is comfortable.
