The immediate denture process
The first appointment is where the impressions and jaw
measurements are taken as well as intraoral photography. Then your teeth are
extracted, and the temporary denture placed.
The second appointment is with your prosthetist 3 to 5 days
later, where the denture is assessed. You will require denture linings through
the health period.
Three to six months after your teeth have been extracted is when you can either have the temporary denture relined so it lasts longer. Or, you can have a final denture made that will be more suited to your healed mouth. Want to know more about immediate temporary dentures? Please contact us today!
