Conventional dentures are constructed from measurements and impressions of your mouth taken during a consultation. If you are having teeth removed, the dentist will allow the tissue to heal before the plate is fitted. This process could take several months.
Immediate dentures are constructed using the same method but they are inserted immediately after the removal of the teeth. This method provides cosmetic benefits to those unhappy without teeth. However, bones and gums can shrink over time as your tissues heal, this means that they may require relining or replacing once the healing process is complete.
