Immediate Dentures – Johnston, IA

An immediate denture may be the best solution when you want to avoid the inconvenience of living without all of your teeth.  For an immediate denture, we will begin denture preparation before your teeth are extracted.

The first several steps include taking impressions and measurements of your existing teeth and gums to create immediate dentures for placement after tooth removal. At your extraction appointment, your immediate dentures are inserted right away, creating a natural smile you can be proud of.

What you should know about immediate dentures

We have no way of checking the fit of the immediate dentures in your mouth prior to your extractions. Because of this, immediate dentures usually do not fit as accurately as conventional dentures, and almost always need to be relined a few months after delivery.   However, the benefit of immediate dentures is that you never have to go without teeth.

After Extraction

Great care should be taken to follow all postoperative instructions. Your gums and bone will recede after your extractions, and regular check-ups and maintenance will monitor healing and reduce problems. Temporary linings or tissue conditioners may be required to create an optimal fit and may need to be adjusted or replaced a number of times during the healing period. A permanent denture reline will be required to ensure a comfortable and an exact fit after you have completed the healing process.
