Immediate Dentures are designed to be placed immediately after an extraction surgery. The denture helps compress the underlying tissue, aiding in the healing process. You must see your clinician prior to your extractions to have an impression taken. The denture is fabricated prior to the extraction surgery. A temporary reline might be required when it becomes loose during the healing phase. Once your soft tissues have completely healed (about six months following extraction), a permanent reline will take place. Immediate Dentures are commonly used as a temporary transitional denture. They also help improve the final denture, as many changes in aesthetics, fit and function can be made to the permanent denture based on the performance of the Immediate Denture.
