Immediate and Near Immediate Dentures
There are many advantages to immediate dentures. These transitional dentures can be placed at the time of surgical teeth extraction, taking you through the healing period of your dental ridge. This period is usually about six months.
On some occasions, our experts suggest that you wait a few weeks before we make your dentures after your teeth are extracted. These are near immediate dentures, and they depend on you natural teeth’s existing condition. This treatment allows for a denture try-in thereby, eliminating the cosmetics problems associated with conventional immediate dentures.
If your extractions were done at least six months ago and your mouth is fully healed, our center can provide replacement dentures. Typically, we have patients come in for five appointments: impressions, bites registration, try-ins, and denture insertion. These appointments take approximately three to four weeks to complete, and follow-up visits are always scheduled.
During the impression appointment, we provide you with the opportunity to see the various types of available teeth. We also discuss appearances and answer all of your questions in this appointment.
With proper care, dentures should last six to ten years; however, even with proper care, dentures will need to be relined. This is because dental ridges tend to be short and narrow due to resorption, the breakdown of ridge bone, and cause dentures to fit improperly.
Most denture wearers should have their denture relined every three to five years in order to ensure a proper fit. If you have had your dentures for three years, you should make an appointment with your denturist to see if your dentures need to be relined.
