INFORMATION ABOUT IMMEDIATE DENTURES IN COMPLETE DENTURE CLINIC & IMPLANT CENTRE
See Your Denturist If The Following Problems Arise:
Once your natural teeth and roots are extracted your gums will be healing and changing. Up to 50% bone loss can occur during the first year after extractions. Immediate dentures act as Band-Aids® to help promote healing in your mouth. It will be necessary for you to have adjustments and add temporary liners to your dentures. The temporary liners will keep your dentures fitting properly and promote the health of your gums.
Wearing dentures is a lot different than having natural teeth and it can take months to be able to eat properly again. You only have 20% of biting force than when you had natural teeth.
This healing process can take up to one year before you are ready to have a permanent reline placed in your denture. As every patient’s healing period and rate of gum shrinkage is different, the number of temporary liners required in a denture will vary from patient to patient. It is still important to seek dental services in order to evaluate the soft tissue and to examine the dentures for proper fit, comfort and function.
IMPORTANT: It is crucial that you visit your denturist regularly throughout the first year of receiving new dentures. Neglecting to have your initial dentures checked regularly could seriously harm the tissues and bone in your mouth. If improper fit or irritation occurs, contact your denturist immediately.
