Removable immediate dentures are pre-fabricated dentures that are given to people soon after or on the day of tooth removal. These dentures are temporary and might need some adjustments for proper fitting. It will need to be replaced by a permanent denture in about 6 months. Removable immediate dentures are useful especially for people who cannot take off from work etc.
