Skilled in all types of dentures and various dental appliances, Rite Bite Denture & Implant Clinic is your source for immediate dentures in Oakville and Mississauga. We hope the following information will help explain the concepts and clear up any of the questions you might have regarding immediate dentures. If you’re ready to get started, please call to schedule your appointment.
Why You Need Immediate Dentures
Immediate dentures are commonly used to ensure our patients never have to be without teeth. In many cases, patients will come to us with natural teeth that are poor and cannot be used to support a new denture. In this case, the first step is to extract the remaining teeth. Your bone and gums will then need to heal before your final denture is completed. This process can take several months.
You Don’t Have to Be Without Teeth
During the healing process, Rite Bite Denture & Implant Clinic uses immediate dentures so you don’t have to be without teeth. We take impressions of your mouth while your natural teeth are still present. After the extraction, we have an immediate denture ready for you. There are some things to consider when using this form of denture. Since you won’t be able to try on the denture prior to extraction, there may be some aesthetic compromises. However, this typically does not cause any significant problems and most patients are pleased with how they look.
Adjustments to Ensure Comfort
To ensure success, please follow all post-operative instructions from Rite Bite Denture & Implant Clinic, including the use of an oral rinse or salt-water solution. Appointments will be made at approximately 30 days and 90 days following the extraction to add temporary soft liners to compensate for shrinkage and changes in the bone. This will help your denture fit tightly and comfortably. Following the healing process (about 3 to 6 months), we will provide a permanent reline or fabricate an entirely new denture with any changes you require. You can always use your immediate denture in emergencies.
