When teeth are present and a denture is what has been agreed on an immediate denture is recommended. An immediate denture is placed on day of extraction(s). After tissue heals a final denture is created.
Dentures can have patients pick the shade of the teeth. In time as bone level shrinks and dentures loose there fit implants may be recommended.
Implants can be attached to dentures which create a strong hold. Implant supported dentures can eliminate any embarrassing moments of when dentures become loose in public. Implants will also maintain the bone level so that future bone loss will not occur.
