Immediate dentures for a timely solution following tooth loss
Immediate dentures are temporary dentures used by patients who have experienced dental treatment for missing teeth on either or both the upper and lower jaw.
Immediate dentures mean that you are not left without teeth for any period of time.
If you have teeth extracted, your mouth will need to heal for a few weeks before a complete/new denture can be made. In these cases, we may suggest that you use an immediate denture in the meantime.
Temporary immediate dentures allow patients to continue having a full set of replacement teeth while their gum tissue heals, ready for their permanent dentures. Usually, we will fit immediate dentures on the same day as their dental treatment, such as tooth extraction. As your mouth heals, the gums and bone may shrink and so we can reline the immediate denture to adjust the fit.
