What is an Immediate Denture?


If your teeth can not be saved and you have to have all your teeth extracted we can make you an immediate denture. Drs. Capps, Bowman & Padgett will make you a denture to avoid the embarrassment of being without teeth. This will be done before we extract or remove your teeth and delivered the day of surgery.

First, we take an impression of your teeth and gums before we extract any teeth. We will use the models to construct your new temporary or permanent dentures.

When you come in for your extraction appointment we will deliver your immediate denture. We will insert the denture to avoid any embarrassment of having no teeth while you are healing. While you are healing we will give you instructions to follow. You will have regular check ups to ensure ideal healing. During this time your gums and bone recede to a much smaller size while the tooth sockets close. You will need temporary liners or conditioners to help with your healing and depending on how fast or quickly you heal. After two months, we will place a permanent reline or a new denture for an exact fit and to ensure the comfort of your denture.
