Immediate dentures are a solution for those who wish to avoid being without teeth for a long period of time. A full upper denture, full lower denture, or complete denture (top and bottom) can be inserted immediately after your natural teeth are removed.
In order to have the denture ready, measurements and impressions are taken weeks before your natural teeth are removed. Since the fitting of the dentures will change over the weeks after your natural teeth are removed, a temporary lining is used. The lining is changed regularly over the initial few months to ensure proper fitting.
In some cases, changes to the shape of the gums, bone, and facial structure over a four to six month period will be greater than lining changes can fix. When this occurs, new dentures are required.
