TEMPORARY / IMMEDIATE DENTURES
If you are in need of dentures immediately following your tooth/teeth extraction then we can help! The creation of temporary dentures may require four to five visits prior to tooth extraction. Temporary dentures are made using basically the same technique as a permanent denture, but because they are made in advance of any surgery, you can't tell exactly how your mouth will look after teeth are removed. By contrast, the molds for conventional dentures are made once the gum tissues have healed following any tooth extractions, which takes about six to eight weeks. During this time, the gum tissues will shrink and so the fit of temporary dentures WILL change.
You can keep your temporary dentures as a spare set so you won't find yourself without teeth if your permanent dentures should get lost or become damaged.
Following a healing period of your oral tissues, dentures will not fit properly and therefore will need to be relined. This can all be done at the Georgetown Denture Clinic.
