Unlike conventional dentures, immediate dentures are made in advance and can be positioned as soon as the teeth are removed.
As a result, the wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period.
However, bones and gums shrink over time, especially during the healing period following tooth removal. Therefore a disadvantage of immediate dentures compared with conventional dentures is that they require more adjustments to fit properly during the healing process, and generally should only be considered a temporary solution until conventional dentures can be made.
