If your teeth are compromised or failing and you need to have them removed, you don’t need to live with missing teeth and a self-conscious smile while waiting for your gums to heal.
With immediate or transitional dentures, you can have a temporary denture made ahead of time before your teeth are extracted. This temporary fixture is then inserted immediately by your dentist after the teeth are removed.
With an immediate or transitional denture, healing can take place without you having to take time off work or go around without teeth. After having your teeth removed and your temporary denture placed, you will experience what we call a “healing phase.” During this healing period—approximately 3 to 6 months, depending on how many teeth you have removed—we will assess your mouth regularly and insert temporary soft liners into your denture in order to facilitate a more comfortable fit while your mouth is changing. At the end of the healing phase, we will begin creating your new smile. This process can be followed for both complete and partial dentures.
