Immediate Dentures near Chicago

Smiling older woman

An immediate denture may be the best solution when a complete extraction of your remaining teeth is unavoidable. An immediate denture will allow you to avoid the embarrassment of living without teeth. Our dentist in Chicago will begin the preparation for this procedure before your teeth are extracted.

The first step is taking impressions of your existing teeth and gums to create accurate replicas for placement after tooth removal. At your tooth extraction appointment, your immediate dentures in Chicago are inserted, creating a natural smile you can be proud of.

What you should know about immediate dentures

In most cases, we have no way of checking the fit of the denture in your mouth prior to extraction. Esthetic compromises may have to be made in some cases to compensate for inadequate space or structural concerns.

After Tooth Extraction

Great care should be taken to follow all postoperative instructions. Your gums and bone will recede after extraction, and regular check-ups and maintenance will monitor healing and reduce problems. Temporary linings and tissue conditioners will be required during the healing period. A permanent reline will be necessary to ensure a comfortable and accurate fit after you have completed the healing process.
