Immediate Dentures Chapel Hill NC
When it is necessary to completely extract all of your remaining teeth, an instant denture may be the best option. You’ll be able to prevent going without teeth by getting an instant denture. Before we remove your teeth, we’ll start the preparation for this treatment.
The first stage is to make realistic replicas of your teeth and gums after taking imprints of your current teeth and gums. Your instant dentures are placed at your extraction session to provide you a natural-looking grin.
What you should know about immediate dentures
Most of the time, we are unable to determine whether your denture will fit well in your mouth before extraction. The dentures might need to be relined or refitted when the area heals.
It’s important to carefully follow all postoperative guidelines. After extraction, your gums and bone will regress, and routine maintenance checks will monitor healing and minimize issues. To achieve the best fit, temporary linings or tissue conditioners will be required, and they might need to be changed or altered several times throughout the healing process. Once your healing is complete, a permanent denture reline will be needed to provide a secure and precise fit.
- The specialists at Frederick G. Lehmann, DDS, PA will recommend the technique that is most appropriate for your particular circumstances.
- Temporary denture liners, tissue conditioner and relines are additional services that may have separate fees.
- Consult our practice with questions about the benefits of an immediate denture.
