IMMEDIATE DENTURES

An immediate denture is a partial or complete denture that is placed immediately following the removal of natural teeth.  It may replace a single tooth or all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw.

 

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES?

This means that the patient doesn’t go through a period of missing teeth, and quite often the appearance is improved.  It is easier to have made to duplicate the shape, colour and arrangement of your natural teeth while they are still present in your mouth.  It can be less pain as the denture acts as a protecting splint covering the extracted areas.  It can also support the lips and cheeks and make it easier to eat and talk.
 
  

 
 
WHAT ARE THE DISADVANTAGES?

An immediate denture may not always fit as well as a conventional denture, as the gums and bone healed during the initial 6-8 weeks following extractions and even up to 6 months.  They therefore often need to be realigned  or even replaced with the shrinkage of bone and soft tissue.  This means that it often involves more costs and means that an immediate denture may be more costly.
 
 
 

The most important step you can take to ensure the longevity of your teeth is to practice good oral hygiene.
