Dentures Ask The Dentist Ara Nazarian Question:
Loose temporary denture from day 1: I had my 5 remaining upper front teeth pulled.

The dentist put a temporary denture in same day. He noticed it was very loose and put poligrip on it and installed it.

I've been reading online about them, and it shouldn't be this loose right from the get go. Do I need another denture made? ...Visitor from CT

When we make an immediate denture the lab estimates what the ridge would be like after the extractions, so it is never a perfect fit.

For the next three months as the bone heals you will notice that it still will not fit. In fact, it will become much more loose. At that time if you are pleased with the way the teeth are then all you need is a reline.

On the day of extractions, if the denture is loose then I typically do a soft reline for my patients. You may want to ask your dentist for this during the healing phase, so that you do not contaminate the healing area with Fixadent.

A Nazarian, DDS
