These type of prothesis are made for patients to wear during the healing period
following tooth removal, they can replace a tooth or even a full arch.
When the teeth are extracted the surrounding tissues will suffer dimensional
changes in a process known as resorption, the greatest amount of resorption occurs
within the first 4 to 6 months following the teeth extraction, that is why is important to
use an immediate denture.
For an immediate denture it will be necessary a proper planning and pre-
operatory procedures by your dentist. He will take a couple molds of your mouth and will send them to a dental
laboratory for the fabrication of your immediate denture. The next step is to have your surgical
treatment and once it’s finished you will leave with your prosthetic. Once the oral
tissues heal, it’s probable that you will need a reline to have a better fit of your denture.
You will need an immediate denture if you are planning to have a surgical procedure in your mouth.
