Immediate Dentures

If you just learned that you will be losing all of your natural teeth, there are options for you so that you are never “toothless.” Immediate dentures restore your smile immediately following tooth extraction. The dentures are fabricated prior to your extractions, so you are never without teeth. 

Impressions of your mouth are taken on the top and bottom in the state that they are in pre-extraction. All measuring and verification appointments are unable to be completed during immediate denture fabrication steps. We will collect information regarding your wishes for aesthetics and do our absolute best to deliver a smile that you will be happy with. You would complete the denture fabricating process with the denture clinic prior to scheduling an appointment with your dentist or oral surgeon to remove your teeth. The dentures would need to be picked up from our office prior to your extraction appointment. Your dentist or oral surgeon will insert the denture before you leave their office. Any issues or concerns regarding the denture after your extractions can be addressed with our clinic directly. 

There are complications to be expected with immediate dentures. Since they are never the “perfect fit”, they may cause sores in your mouth. With a few follow-up visits, the dentures will begin to feel more comfortable. After your gums have healed and the bone begins to reform, the dentures will likely need to be refitted/relined. This is usually done six months later.

For more information on whether an immediate denture is right for you, talk to your denturist.
