Immediate Dentures and Partials

What to Expect

When you first start wearing dentures everything feels different

Immediate Dentures: As a new denture wearer it is natural for you to have questions and feelings of apprehension or uncertainty. But if you know what to expect ahead of time, these changes can be a little easier to take. The first step to seeking answers is to speak with your dental professional who can answer questions and help you to understand what you should expect as you make the transition to life with your new dentures.

As you adjust to your new dentures it is important to remember two things:

  • It is not something that will happen overnight, getting used to dentures takes time.
  • There are important milestones that you can work toward that will help you get a sense of where you are in the process.

What are immediate dentures?

Immediate dentures (sometimes called temporary dentures) are placed in the mouth immediately after the natural teeth are extracted. This approach is utilized when a person does not want to be without any teeth for several months while extraction tooth sockets heal and a new permanent denture is fabricated. While the healing process takes place, your gums, which support the denture, will shrink. It is very important to keep all dental care appointments during this time period, as your denture will require adjustments.
