An immediate denture is fitted by your Dentist or Dental Specialist at the time of the extraction of your natural teeth. Your denture is therefore made before your teeth are removed. This being the most preferred option.
- Delayed Immediate Denture
We begin making the denture after the teeth are removed, normally seven or eight days post extraction. This option is only used when your natural teeth are in a position of compromise, too loose or over-erupted.

Made 6 months after your extractions. The delay is to allow time for your gums to stop shrinking, and results in a better fitting first denture. This option is very rare but some patients prefer this option.
