The Advantages of Post Extraction Dentures
The biggest advantage of Post – Extraction Dentures is the ability to try your new dentures in your mouth before completion. The degree of satisfaction with this method is increased twofold, especially if you are looking for a functional and esthetically pleasing change.
Post – Extraction Dentures allow the DP to fabricate your new dentures with the same measurements and techniques normally used in denture construction and design. The decision you make in regards to Immediate Denture or Post – Extraction Denture will be determined by your unique situation with the help of your dentist and DP.
Post – Extraction Dentures generally require fewer relines and temporary liners, however, it is still important for you to have the fit of your new denture checked regularly to reduce the possibility of hyperplasic tissue growth. A Post- Extraction Denture may be the best choice if you are replacing only your posterior teeth because you will have a better fit from the beginning and usually less discomfort.
If you choose a Chrome Cobalt Metal Casting, Valplast® or Lucitone® FRS™ denture, it may also be advisable to wait until the bone and gums have healed because there can be difficulty in relining those materials.
