Things You Should Know about Immediate Dentures
Since it is next to impossible to try-in the denture prior to extracting your teeth, certain aesthetic compromises might be necessary. This doesn’t present any significant problems, and the results we have achieved have been astonishing.
It is important to follow the postoperative instructions, and it is never a bad idea to call us with any questions you may have during the recovery period.
As healing occurs, the oral tissues recede so denture adjustments may be required. Follow-up appointments are necessary to maintain the best fit and comfort. A temporary liner or tissue conditioner may be placed in the denture for temporary relief as well. During the next few months, bone and gum tissue will probably continue to shrink to some degree; however, the rate of change decreases with time. This is a natural occurrence, which is to be expected but can be reduced or stopped through implant retained procedures. After the healing process is complete, either a new permanent full denture (s) will be made or your denture(s) will be relined or rebased to ensure the most comfortable fit possible.
