What Are Immediate Dentures?   

Immediate dentures, also known as temporary dentures, are provided to patients who are undergoing tooth extraction.These dentures serve as placeholders during the initial two to three months until permanent dentures are fabricated. Immediate dentures assist in maintaining oral function and aesthetics post-extraction and aid in healing.  

 

Our denturist ensures precise fittings for optimal comfort and functionality. Trust us for quality immediate dentures, providing a seamless transition until your permanent dentures are ready. 

Dental Transition Process 

Step1: One to two months before your tooth extraction: 

Our team will work with you to plan the transition process as you prepare for your tooth extraction. During this time, we will discuss your options for immediate dentures and create a customized treatment plan. 

Step 4 : First weeks: 

You may experience discomfort or soreness over the first few weeks as your mouth adapts to the dentures. Our team will be available to address any concerns and make adjustments to ensure a comfortable fit.  

Step2: Day of the extraction: 

Our denturists will be ready to provide immediate dentures on the day of your extraction. These temporary dentures are designed to fit your mouth immediately after the extraction. 

Step 5: Getting your permanent dentures: 

Once your gums have fully healed, typically after a few months, you'll be ready to receive your permanent dentures. Our team will take new impressions of your mouth to ensure a precise fit and customize your permanent dentures. 

Step3 : First day with immediate dentures: 

Your first day with immediate dentures may feel unfamiliar, but our team will provide detailed instructions on caring for and adjusting to wearing them.  

How Can We Make Your Dental Transition Process Smoother?

Getting immediate dentures starts from taking your teeth and bite impression to making a model of your teeth, extracting the teeth, and immediately replacing them with the dentures. Our denturist will then schedule a follow-up appointment to check your immediate dentures, and later, necessary adjustments will be made. Any form of discomfort or pain experienced can be managed with medication. Please contact us if you would like to schedule your first immediate denture process in Port Coquitlam.

Disadvantages of Immediate Dentures

They are not a permanent solution.
Initially, they have less accuracy.
The actual size of the dentures cannot be assessed until they are inserted.

Caring for Your Immediate Dentures

3

Take pain medication as directed instead of waiting until you’re in pain. You can also apply an ice pack over the area during the first few hours to relieve discomfort.

During the first two to three days, minor bleeding is normal. The pressure from the denture will stop the bleeding if you close your teeth securely for ten minutes. If you experience excessive bleeding, contact our team right away.

Keep the rest of your mouth and remaining natural teeth  as clean as possible, aiding healing. 

Avoid spitting and using mouthwash during the first 24 hours.

What Our Patients Say About Us

Great Job, Well Done

“I would like too make a shout out to Burke Mountain Denture. They have gone out of their way and beyond. During this pandemic they made my mother dentures! Such a great job, well done! These are precession dentures. She had surgery last year. Added bone as it was deteriorated over time. As the Dentures were never made correct in the first place. Let me just say this is the first time she has ever had the best fitting dentures ever. So this means that they have gone out of their way to make the precise job. I have never seen the Dentures to use measuring devices as I've seen him perform. You won't be well impressed with the Precision dentures that you will receive from Burke Mountain denture. All I can say is my mother is well well impressed with his overall outcome and she will definitely be back.”
