Immediate dentures are a great option for denture patients wanting to avoid walking around without teeth. These dentures are placed immediately following tooth extraction. This immediate delivery can also assist with blood flow and clotting, helping you heal more quickly from surgery.

Your dentist will perform a routine examination and possibly take X-rays or do imaging to help them develop an individualized treatment plan for you. They will discuss your options with you, including costs, materials, and tooth color.

Once you have accepted treatment, your dentist will take an impression and send it to the lab for fabrication. At delivery, you will be prepped for tooth extraction and your dentures will be placed. Adjustments are usually needed because the shape of tissue changes after surgery. Over the next couple of months as your mouth heals, your tissue and bone will shrink, resulting in your dentures fitting loosely. It will be necessary to reline the dentures for a more accurate fit after your healing is complete.

If you are in need of tooth extractions or dentures we encourage you to schedule a consultation. We have a variety of options available for your needs. We want you to have the beautiful, healthy smile you deserve.

If you have any questions regarding immediate dentures or want to schedule an appointment, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (407) 679-5151.
