What is an immediate denture?
Let’s explain when an immediate denture is by using an example, suppose, for instance, that you have eight remaining upper teeth. These teeth are, unfortunately, poor and cannot be used in any way to support a new denture. If you were to have a traditional denture made, it would be necessary to have all of these teeth extracted first, the bone and gums would have to heal and then a denture could be made.
The process could take several months if not longer and for that time period you would have to go around without any teeth. As an alternative to having you go around toothless while the gums heal, we utilize an Immediate Denture technique.
