An immediate denture is a removable dental prosthesis that is placed in a patient’s mouth immediately after the extraction of their natural teeth. These dentures serve as a temporary solution, providing both esthetic and functional benefits during the healing process after tooth removal. Immediate dentures are custom-made in advance, allowing for a seamless transition from natural teeth to dentures. While they offer the advantage of preserving a patient’s appearance and ability to chew, they require adjustments as the gums and tissues heal and change shape over time. Once the healing is complete, a more permanent denture or reline may be necessary to ensure a comfortable, long-term fit.
