Same Day Tooth Additions
Can a Tooth be Added to a Partial Denture?
Another same day service we offer is tooth additions for partial dentures. Teeth can be added after the tooth has been extracted or prior to the tooth extraction, in which case it would be called an ‘immediate tooth addition’. Like an Immediate Denture, an impression is taken with the tooth to be extracted still in the mouth (and the denture in place). We then grind that tooth off the model to simulate the extraction and add a tooth in its place. When you return to the dentist, they will anesthetise, perform the extraction and then put the denture straight in.
Northern Rivers Denture Clinic is on hand to help ensure your dentures are 100% comfortable. As well as repairs, relines and additions we also offer tissue-conditioning services and denture cleaning upon request.
