Immediate Surgical Dentures
Immediate dentures are constructed in advance of surgery to remove all or some of your natural teeth. They are placed immediately in the mouth after the teeth are removed by the dentist or oral surgeon. You will not be without teeth during the healing period.
An immediate denture can be a complete, partial or implant-supported overdenture.
Advantages of Immediate Dentures
The denture acts as a healing splint to promote better ridge formation with reduced swelling
Esthetics are maintained during the healing
The facial muscles are maintained at the same position to assist muscle memory and temporal mandibular joint position
The phonetic and functional training of the new denture can start on the day of placement
