IMMEDIATE/PERMANENT DENTURE PACKAGE
Immediate dentures are sometimes referred to as “temporary” dentures. They are used when an individual first has his natural teeth surgically extracted. After the teeth have been removed, the denture is immediately placed in the mouth. This application serves as an important step in healing process of the tissue, and it allows the patient to never be without teeth.
Since a tremendous amount of change occurs to the oral tissue from the time of extraction to several months down the road, our denture clinic staff continuously works with denture patients to provide numerous adjustments to the dentures, and to soft tissue conditioning liners that accommodate the dentures when they begin to feel loose. As the name implies, “temporary” dentures are designed to assist the changing structures of the mouth for only a limited time.
Approximately 6 months after surgery, the patient’s bone and tissue has healed sufficiently enough to perform the final reline treatment. This process involves a series of technical impressions to the appliances as a fresh new layer of acrylic material is added to the denture bases, ensuring maximum functionality and comfort.
