An immediate denture is nothing but the process of inserting complete or Partial Denture, immediately following the removal of a tooth. It is done usually on the same day by the dentist. Same Day Dentures are proven to be advantageous in several scenarios especially in immediate situations like when a tooth is at the very verge of falling down or is missing. In such cases, treatment becomes necessary and immediate dentures are at your rescue. It is carried out as such it looks perfectly identical to your natural teeth in context of colour, shape and arrangement. Duplication of your natural teeth to reproduce an identical one, to sort out the missing tooth is the primary aim through immediate denture process. Since immediate dentures are followed right after the extraction of a damaged or loose tooth, it acts as a band-aid protecting the surrounding tissues and reduces bleeding. In addition, it helps you pick up your speaking abilities quite early. Speech patterns are hardly disturbed and helps you cope with day to day activities in a better way than other procedures. It helps you chew the food more systematically and reduce facial distortion that may occur when a tooth is missing.
