Before you get immediate dentures, your dentist needs to have a good idea of your overall health. If you are pregnant or think you might be, discuss this with the dentist. You will need anesthesia for the tooth extractions right before you get your immediate dentures. Anesthesia could cause problems for an unborn baby.
