You can count on South Point Denture Clinic in Surrey for immediate dentures. An immediate denture differs from a standard or permanent denture because it is only for temporary use. Immediate dentures are not custom-fit to the mouth. As a result, they may or may not fit perfectly. We put immediate dentures in place on the same day that your teeth are extracted. Immediate dentures help to keep your gums healthy while your mouth heals from the extraction.
Sometimes, following unavoidable circumstances, you may need to get all your remaining teeth extracted. Immediate dentures often provide a solution in such situations.
Our denturists will take impressions and measurements to fabricate your dentures prior to the extraction surgery by the dentist. At your extraction appointment, your immediate dentures are placed right away, avoiding the embarrassment of having no teeth during your healing period.
During the healing period, post-operative instructions are given by your denturists that are to be followed carefully. As your gums and bone are reduced to a much smaller size following the closing of the tooth sockets, regular checkups and maintenance are required to ensure ideal healing. Temporary linings (tissue conditioners) will be required to ensure a positive fit. This procedure may be repeated a number of times based on your physiological rate of healing. At the completion of the healing period (usually 6 - 8 months), a final fitting (permanent reline/rebase) or a new denture may be constructed to ensure a comfortable and exact fit.
Post-immediate dentures are closer to standard dentures in terms of fit and fabrication. After a minimum of 2-3 weeks of healing from your extractions and your gums have healed enough to take impressions, your dentures can begin being fabricated by our denture specialists. The decision to acquire immediate or post-immediate dentures is usually unique to your particular situation. Our denturists at South Point Denture Clinic can provide assistance and guidance towards making the right choice for your needs.
Immediate dentures provide a wide array of benefits to people who have just got their teeth extracted. The advantages include:
You don’t have to go out in public without your teeth.
While some of your original teeth are still present in your mouth, it is simpler to mimic their form, colour, and arrangement.
When an immediate denture is placed after extraction, it acts as a band-aid, protecting the tissues and reducing bleeding.
You will be able to develop your speaking habits sooner with an immediate denture.
