FAQ's about Immediate Dentures
We can’t create a permanent denture for you straight after tooth extraction, as your gum tissue and the bones underneath change significantly over the first few weeks and months. This means that without an immediate denture, you would be functioning daily without any teeth in your mouth.
An immediate denture helps bridge this gap by providing you with a device that helps give the appearance of natural teeth. Immediate dentures also help with the healing process by minimising swelling and helping to settle the underlying tissues.
Everything new takes a little bit of getting used to, so you might find there is a little bit of discomfort and awkwardness as you get used to a foreign body in your mouth.
However, the good news is that many people with decayed teeth are relieved to discover that their pain levels have minimised.
Any new discomfort from the immediate denture is far less of an issue than dealing with the pain of diseased teeth.
