Immediate dentures are a kind of full and partial denture that differ from traditional permanent dentures. These dentures are created before the teeth that are being replaced with dentures have been removed and are used immediately after tooth extraction and during the healing process, which can be up to six months long. These dentures are typically more easily refitted than permanent dentures.
They help in accommodating for mouth changes as the swelling in the gums and jaw subsides while healing. The immediate dentures will be disposed of once the healing process is complete and your mouth is ready for permanent dentures.
