What Are Instant Dentures?

An instant denture is a  removable prosthetic device that acts as a replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues.

There are two main categories of dentures: Complete and Partial.

Complete dentures are utilized if the patient is missing all the teeth, while partial dentures are recommended when some natural teeth remain.

Full and Partial Dentures

Types of Dentures

As the name indicates, immediate or instant dentures can be placed as soon as the teeth have been removed.

They are made in advance, allowing the patient to have replacement teeth immediately instead of waiting 8-12 weeks for the healing to occur.

Instant dentures also require adjustment since the gums and the jawbone shrink while healing. [4]

So instant dentures are considered temporary options that act as fillers until more conventional dentures are made.

Types of Dentures in India

Dentures come in different types; each should be used in specific cases and conditions. Here are the different types of dentures available in India:

Placed on top of the gums, they replace all of the patients’ teeth. They’re placed a couple of months after tooth extraction.

Full Dentures

They’re a good choice if you’re only missing a few teeth. They clip around your existing teeth to be held in place and are removable.

Partial Denture

Also called overdentures, they snap on top of implants like snap-on buttons. They’re removable and provide enhanced stability compared to traditional dentures. [17]

Snap-on Dentures

These are dentures placed on one or multiple implants (e.g., all-on-4 dental implants). Unlike snap-on dentures, they’re held securely in place, which offers further stability.

Implant-supported Dentures


The Instant denture procedure is relatively quick; that’s its main advantage.

However, immediate partial dentures and immediate full dentures differ slightly in their procedures. Here’s how it goes:

Once your dentist examines your teeth, CT scans, and X-rays, he will determine whether you are a good candidate for immediate dentures.

If qualified, the procedure for partial and full dentures is as below:

Instant Partial Dentures Procedure

Appointment 1

  • Taking impressions (or hard print) of your teeth
  • An immediate partial denture is made using this impression

Appointment 2

  • You will undergo dental extractions
  • Instant dentures will be placed

Instant Full Dentures Procedure

Appointment 1: Back teeth extraction

Healing period: 4 to 8 weeks

Appointment 2: Impressions are taken of your mouth

Appointment 3: Front teeth extraction and immediate dentures will be placed
