Immediate dentures will give you the convenience of not being without anterior teeth throughout the denture fabrication process. The remaining anterior teeth are extracted on the day of final denture delivery. After approximately 6 months of healing, the denture usually requires a denture reline due to the shrinking of the gums following the healing from the extractions. At this time the Immediate denture will fit as well as a permanent denture. READ MORE

Occasional sensitivity to cold can last months on a deep filling. Use OTC pain pills as needed. Hot sensitivity should decrease in a few days. If not getting better to hot, the nerve may not recover, in which case it can be removed by an endodontist. Pressure sensitivity to biting can be adjusted by your American Dental Association dentist any time. Use OTC meds as needed and give your tooth time to heal by itself, but don't let it keep you up at night. Russell A. Sassack, D.D.S. READ MORE
