Making your dentures requires time and attention. It will often require some of your teeth to be extracted. When you first come in for a consultation and fitting, our Ottawa denturist will make an impression of your existing teeth and gums prior to extraction. We will then use those impressions in the construction of your new dentures, replicating your original teeth or modifying their appearance and stability. However, there will be a period in which will you will be undergoing the extractions and be given time to adjust while your dentures are being made.
We can provide immediate dentures in Ottawa as a solution to this issue, while you have teeth due for extractions. Should you wish to avoid being without your prosthesis or teeth in a day or for an extended period of time after the extraction, we can start the procedure to fit you with immediate dentures prior to the extraction. This will allow you to have a functional prosthesis throughout the process. We have provided some things to keep in mind if you are considering immediate dentures in Ottawa:
• In some cases, there is no way to try on the dentures prior to the extraction
• You must carefully follow post-operative instructions from your surgeon and Ottawa denturist
• We advise using temporary linings to assist with the fit
• You should schedule regular checkups to monitor the healing and fit of your dentures
After your gums have completely healed, we advise having a permanent reline or measurements made to ensure the fit of your prosthesis. At Sean Denture & Implant Center, we provide you with the advice and options that best meet your specific needs. We are confident that we can guide you through this process in a variety of ways.
