Immediate Dentures

When extraction of remaining teeth is unavoidable Dentures are the best solution.

An immediate denture will allow the patient to avoid the embarrassment of living without teeth. West Side Dental Works will begin the preparation for this procedure before teeth are extracted.

The first step is taking impressions of the patients existing teeth and gums to create accurate duplicates for placement after tooth removal. At the extraction appointment, the immediate dentures are inserted creating a natural smile you can be proud of.

In most cases, there is no way of checking the fit of the denture in a patients mouth prior to extraction. Esthetic compromises may have to be made is some cases too compensate for inadequate space or structural concerns.

What To Do After Extraction

Great care should be taken to follow all postoperative instructions. Patients gums and bone will recede after extraction, and regular check-ups and maintenance will monitor healing and reduce problems. Temporary linings or tissue conditioners will be required to create an optimal fit and may need to be adjusted or replaced a number of times during the healing period. A permanent reline will be required to ensure a comfortable and an exact fit after the patient has completed the healing process.

  • The professionals at West Side Dental Works will advise of the procedure that best suits the patients individual needs.
  • Temporary liners, tissue conditioner and relines are additional services that may have separate fees.
  • Consult our practice with questions about the benefits of an immediate denture.
