Getting Immediate Dentures – What Else Should You Know?

If you’re hungry for more information about getting and living with immediate dentures, here’s a list of articles we’ve collected with your questions in mind:

  • Before getting immediate dentures, you generally go through a tooth extraction process. Learn all about tooth extraction here.

  • After your gums have successfully healed from the tooth extraction, you may eventually need to have your dentures relined, since the shape of gums can change considerably during the healing process. What are the top reasons behind ill-fitting dentures and how to deal with them? Find out here.

  • When wearing your immediate dentures, you might experience gum pain. Learn the reasons behind gum irritation and how to relieve gum pain.

  • Just like your regular teeth, your immediate dentures also need a daily cleaning to ensure optimal oral hygiene. Discover how to clean your dentures here.
