Using Transitional Dentures


An experienced operator can eliminate most of the problems arising with immediate dentures. However, sometimes the post extraction changes or pre-extraction condition of the teeth and underlying bone lead to problems of fit or looks that are simply too extensive to overcome at the time of reline and a new denture must be made to bring that person back to normal. The charges for this denture are over and above the original cost. As a matter of fact, there are many denturists who use the first denture as a temporary or transitional appliance and plan from the beginning to construct the permanent denture six to nine months following extractions.
