Immediate dentures can be made for someone who is going to be having their natural teeth extracted. Immediates can be fabricated ahead of time, before the extractions, so that you are never without teeth. With the immediate dentures in hand, your Dentist can put them in right away after your extractions. Immediate dentures can protect the healing tissue which can aid in the healing process. Your gums/ridges will change shape as they heal and the fit of an immediate will vary as the process goes on. Immediate dentures will require a rebase once your gums are fully healed.
