ORAL HEALTH FOR OVERALL HEALTH
Proper oral hygiene does not only prevent caries and periodontal disease but also affects our overall health and well-being
When the decision has been made to extract all or some of your natural teeth, you may feel overwhelmed with the thought of being without teeth as your mouth heals and for the time needed to fabricate a conventional denture. To avoid this, and immediate denture may be your best option.
At Caygeon Denture Clinic we can begin the process prior to your extractions so that you can have your denture inserted by your dentist the same day as the removal of your natural teeth.
Following the placement of your immediate denture(s), our office will continue to support you during the healing process and make any necessary adjustments to your denture(s) to ensure your comfort. During this time, you may require Tissue Conditioners or temporary liners to accommodate the natural changes in your mouth as it heals. If you are a non-smoker, a permanent reline will need to be done after 6 months of healing time. If you are a smoker, then the waiting time for a permanent reline will be a minimum of 1 year.
