An Immediate Denture is a complete denture or partial denture inserted on the same day, immediately following the removal of natural teeth.
The most important advantage of Immediate Dentures is that you will never need to appear in public without teeth. It is also easier to duplicate the shape, color and arrangement of your natural teeth while some are still present in your mouth. When an immediate denture is inserted at the time of extraction, it will act as a Band-Aid to protect the tissues and reduce bleeding.
An Immediate Denture will allow you to establish your speech patterns early. You will not have to learn to speak without a denture in place and then later relearn to speak with a new denture. An Immediate Denture will also allow you to chew better than without any teeth and minimise facial distortion that may occur when teeth are removed.
About six months following initial tooth extractions your Immediate Denture must be finalised by a permanent reline or new denture. Your Clinico Clinician will discuss the pros and cons of these with you.
A major advantage to making a new denture is that the Immediate Denture can be a spare denture if the new denture breaks, is misplaced, or has to be repaired or relined in our laboratory.
Some people may be advised against Immediate Dentures due to general health conditions, or because of specific oral problems.
