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. They allow you to avoid having to go without teeth while your mouth is healing.
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.
