An immediate denture is a full denture that is placed on the same day, immediately after the extraction of your natural teeth. At Port Coquitlam Denture Clinic, we can provide you with immediate dentures in the Tri-Cities area and help you avoid the feeling of living without teeth. Our denturist will take an impression of your existing teeth and gums before the surgery. Those impressions will then be used for the construction of your new dentures, duplicating your natural teeth or even enhancing their appearance based on your needs.
Some guidelines on immediate dentures:
In some cases, you are not able to try on these dentures prior to extractions
You are supposed to carefully follow post-operative instructions from our denturist
Temporary linings may be placed to ensure a positive fit
Regular checkups are required to ensure ideal healing and continued perfect fit
Immediate Dentures Vs Conventional Dentures
Conventional dentures are placed about a month after all the teeth are extracted, depending on how you heal. However, immediate dentures are placed immediately following extractions. To help your gums during the healing period, we will also provide you with a temporary lining. This results in a beautiful set of immediate dentures and ensures you don’t miss a day without a complete smile. Schedule your consultation today.
