What Are Immediate Dentures?
Immediate Dentures are dentures that will be ready to use immediately after you have had your teeth extracted, minimising the time that you are without any teeth?
Why Would You Want Dentures Straight Away?
One of the main reasons you would want to have the denture ready as soon as possible is to avoid any social interactions without having any teeth. Speaking & eating will also be considerably easier with teeth. When an immediate denture is put in it will also act as a bandage for the extracted teeth and will help speed up the healing period. When teeth have been extracted, there could be a chance of facial distortion, which an immediate denture can help avoid.
How Are Immediate Dentures Made?
Impressions of your teeth will be taken prior to having the extractions. These impressions, alongside a simulated extraction of the affected teeth will take place to create the custom made dentures. Because extractions can vary and the simulation will never be 100% accurate, the custom made dentures may not be as good of a fit as if they had been made after the extractions. In most cases, a reline will be required once the dentures have been fitted to ensure a snug and comfortable denture.
What Are Denture Relines?
When teeth are extracted you will always undergo a natural healing process. During this process the mouth can have several changes which may mean the denture does not fit as well as it once did at the initial fit. We will carry out a reline which will adjust the denture to fit your mouth after the healing period, leaving you with a comfortable & functional denture.
