Restore Your Smile with Immediate Dentures in Nanaimo

If you’ve been advised that all your remaining teeth need to be extracted and you need an immediate set of dentures made, Harbour City Denture Clinic in Nanaimo can help you. immediate dentures are made before your teeth are extracted and are inserted once the teeth are removed. The dentures are placed over the incision sites and serve as a Band-Aid, allowing you to avoid having to go without teeth while your mouth is healing.


Feel free to call us if you want to know more about our immediate dentures.

What Is an Immediate Denture?

An immediate denture is a type of denture which is fabricated before you go for a teeth extraction process. The denturists take an impression of your teeth and craft a denture for your unique dental needs. A temporary solution, the dentures are inserted into your mouth immediately after your extraction and save you from having to go with gaps in your mouth. These dentures serve both aesthetic and functional purposes.


The immediate dentures at Harbour City Denture Clinic look and feel natural. Despite being a temporary solution, they help you get your smile back the same day you undergo an extraction procedure. You can also gradually go back to eating what you love with these dentures!


Benefits of Immediate Dentures

Listed below are the benefits of immediate dentures:

   Allows your smile to be restored immediately after an extraction is carried out.

   Protects the gum tissues that become sensitive after the extraction process.

   Prevents swelling of the gums and keeps food from causing irritation at the extraction sites.

   Enables faster healing, although the time required may vary from patient to patient.

   Looks and feels natural and helps you feel confident when you speak or smile.


At Harbour City Denture Clinic in Nanaimo, you can rely on our denturist for well-fitting immediate dentures so that you can experience all of these benefits. View our smile gallery to have a look at some before and after images.


Things You Should Know About Immediate Dentures

Immediate dentures may sound ideal, but it is important to understand the limitations of the process so you can decide whether they are the best choice for you. Since you cannot "try-in" the teeth before they are finished there are aesthetic compromises that  will have to be accounted for. When it comes to immediate dentures, you also need to keep in mind that during the first year there will also be significant bone loss. As your dentures become looser (and there is more movement), you will need to have temporary liners applied by the denturist to keep your denture fitting properly. Then approximately 6 to 8 months after extractions, you will need a permanent reline done so your dentures will fit the new contours of your jaw.
