What are Immediate Dentures?
The Benefits of Immediate Dentures
Immediate dentures offer patients various benefits, with one of the main benefits being that patients never need to appear in public without teeth. The benefits of immediate dentures include:
- Allows you to establish speech patterns early
- Allows you to chew better
- Minimizes facial distortion that may occur when teeth are removed
- Immediately fills the gaps in the mouth after an extraction
- Protects the gums during the healing process
- Helps minimize gum bleeding
- Received on the same day as the extraction
The Disadvantages of Immediate Dentures
There aren’t too many disadvantages when it comes to immediate dentures. One of the few disadvantages of immediate dentures is their cost. Additionally, it's not always possible to see how the denture will look before the teeth are extracted, and the immediate dentures are inserted. There is also the possibility that the immediate dentures will not fit as accurately as the conventional ones.
The Immediate Dentures Process
While the immediate denture process can vary based on the individual, it can consist of four to five visits for the fabrication phase of the immediate denture, as well as any preliminary surgery. If a complete immediate denture is needed instead of a partial, the back teeth may be extracted six to eight weeks before the fabrication phase if they are still present. Doing so allows the extractions sites to heal and facilitates a better fitting. The fabrication phase includes impressions, bite records, tooth selection, and try-in of the back teeth. On the day of delivery, extractions occur, followed by denture insertion.
