There are two types of full denture placement:
Immediate dentures are made in our state-of-the-art dental laboratory before your teeth are extracted. They can be placed in your mouth during the same appointment, so you are never without teeth.
Conventional dentures are placed after your mouth has healed from the tooth removal process.
At Smile Corp, we recommend that immediate dentures only be used as a non-permanent measure. As immediate dentures are made from impressions taken while your natural teeth are still in your mouth, it’s difficult to make an accurate denture to fit your mouth once your teeth are extracted. Conventional dentures are created using impressions taken after your teeth are extracted. Once your mouth has healed, and any bone or gum recession has taken place, conventional dentures provide a better overall fit, and adjustments are minimal.
