Abstract

The treatment planning, clinical stages and construction of immediate dentures pose challenges to both dentist, dental technician and patient. In this two-part series, the various principles for successfully providing patients with immediate dentures will be discussed. This first paper examines the advantages and disadvantages, as well as the treatment planning involved in providing immediate dentures.

CLINICAL RELEVANCE:

Although the provision of immediate dentures is common in dental practice, it is a treatment option which is not without problems. This article will show how careful planning, prior to treatment starting, can prevent unforeseen complications occurring.
