An immediate complete denture is a restoration for lost natural teeth and associated tissues, which is inserted into the patient's mouth immediately following the extraction of the remaining teeth.
The purpose of the paper is to draw the dentist/practitioner's attention to the need for immediate complete denture fabrication. The aims, advantages and disadvantages of immediate dentures as well as contraindications are described in detail.
