Immediate dentures are temporary replacements for full arch teeth that are placed the same day as your teeth are removed. They are typically made from acrylic but can be made from metal or flexible plastic. These teeth are not meant to be worn long-term. The denturist in Aldergrove will advise you about how long to wear them and how to care for your gums before creating your permanent prosthesis.
Our denturist in Canada uses immediate dentures to replace missing teeth while the patient’s jaw heals from the tooth extraction procedure. Your gum tissue will be swollen and sensitive after the extractions, and the immediate denture will help protect the tender gums during this healing period. These dentures are usually considered temporary solution because they are easily removable. Patients often find that their gums are too sensitive to wear their complete denture appliance right away, so immediate dentures are often the first step in the replacement process. This allows patients to adjust to the new device and give their gums time to heal.
After the procedure, the denturist in V2Z 1J5 will schedule follow-up appointments to ensure that your mouth is healing properly and that the denture is not causing abrasions to your gums. Once these are completed and the gums have healed, your denturist in V4W will move on to the fabrication of your complete denture.
Benefits of Immediate Dentures
Immediate dentures are a benefit to those who suffer from tooth loss or severe decay and cannot wait for traditional denture procedures. They are provided to the patient on the same day of their extractions, allowing you to leave the dental office with a complete smile.
After you have lost your teeth, you will begin to lose bone density in your jaw as well.

This will prevent further deterioration of the structure and appearance of your face over time.
