Conventional denture – Immediate denture

Conventional dentures are made after the remaining teeth have been removed, and the gum has healed. The denture can be placed about 8-12 weeks after the teeth extraction. Conventional denture can be partial of full denture.

Unlike conventional dentures immediate dentures are made prior to teeth extraction and placed in as soon as teeth are removed, therefore patient will not be without teeth during healing period. Despite that since the bone and gum will shrink particularly during the healing period the immediate denture needs constant adjustment to fit well. Therefore this is considered a temporary solution until a conventional denture is made for patient.
