What is an Immediate Denture?

An Immediate Denture is a dental prosthesis constructed to replace extracted teeth and associated structures of the upper and/or lower arch which is inserted immediately following removal of the teeth. Since the time and the severity of the healing time vary from client to client, temporary tissue conditioning relines are done to provide fit and comfort. Once the tissue has completely healed, which may take anywhere from six months to one year, then a permanent reline can be done.
