Immediate Dentures | Tumwater WA

Smiling elderly woman

An immediate denture may be the best solution when complete extractions of your remaining teeth is unavoidable.  An immediate denture will allow you to avoid the embarrassment of living without teeth. We will begin the preparation for this procedure before your teeth are extracted.

The first step is taking impressions of your existing teeth and gums to create accurate duplicates for placement after tooth removal.  At your extractions appointment, your immediate dentures
are inserted creating a natural smile you can be proud of.

What you should know about immediate dentures

In most cases, we have no way of checking the fit of the denture in your mouth prior to tooth extractions. Aesthetic compromises may have to be made is some cases to compensate for inadequate space or structural concerns.

After Extractions

Great care should be taken to follow all postoperative instructions. Your gums and bone will recede after extractions, and regular check-ups and maintenance will monitor healing and reduce problems. Temporary linings or tissue conditioners will be required to create an optimal fit and
may need to be adjusted or replaced a number of times during the healing period. A permanent reline will be required to ensure a comfortable and an exact fit after you have completed the healing process.

  • The professionals at Prosthetic Dentistry of Tumwater will advise you of the procedure that best suits your individual needs.
