dental care and cosmetics


1) What are Immediate Dentures?

Immediate dentures are dentures that are placed immediately after teeth are extracted. They allow the restoration of the patient’s smile on the same day that the deceased teeth are extracted.


2) How are Immediate Dentures and Conventional Dentures Different?

Conventional dentures are usually made to replace a previous set of dentures that have become worn out from use.


3) When do dentures need to be relined?

All dentures need to be relined periodically because the contours of the mouth change over time. Conventional dentures need to be relined every 3 to 5 years. Immediate dentures need to have a soft chairside reline placed early and sometimes frequently during the healing process. They will need a laboratory reline completed within 6 to 9 months after surgery.
