The immediate denture is made before the extraction of teeth. During your first visit, your dentist takes measurements of your jaw and creates a model. The immediate denture is inserted once the teeth are extracted. The advantage of immediate dentures is that you do not have to wait for the healing period, which may extend to six months, to have teeth. During the healing period, your bones and gums can shrink, which can cause the dentist to correct the immediate denture so that it fits better.
