Replacement of Missing Teeth

Immediate Denture

When to Opt for an Immediate Denture?

  1. When you do not want to be seen without teeth at anytime
  2. When prepared to come back for re-lines to improve the fit
  3. When willing to make a new set of denture if required at a later stage

An immediate denture is a complete or a partial denture inserted the same day when the teeth are removed.


  1. The main advantage is that you will never be without teeth in public.
  2. All the healing of the gums take place while you are wearing the immediate denture
  3. Will help you to establish your speech patterns early. You will not have to learn to speak without a denture in place and then later relearn to speak with a new denture.


  1. Trial of the false teeth is not possible. One can only see the how the denture will look when it is delivered.
  2. Requires great care after insertion in the mouth
  3. Short term solution.
  4. More expensive
  5. Requires regular adjustments in fitting. Relines are necessary.

Relining an Immediate Denture

  1. Temporary/ Soft Reline: Soft reline materials are used for re-fitting the denture when gums are healing and the denture starts to become loose. This is done in the dental office.
  2. Permanent Reline: After all the healing is complete (about six months after teeth removal), an immediate denture is finalized by a permanent reline material or a new denture made. This is done in the laboratory.
