Abstract: These two review articles aim to provide a comprehensive summary on immediate dentures. In this second part, the various stages of immediate denture construction are discussed. These include primary and master impressions, jaw registration, wax try-in and fitting the prosthesis. However, it has been explained that each stage may not be carried out in every immediate denture construction case. This paper concludes with a discussion on methods of addition to immediate dentures, if and when further teeth are lost.

Clinical relevance: Immediate dentures are commonly used to provide patients with tooth replacement immediately following extractions to maintain aesthetics and function. Therefore, they are an integral part of a dentist’s armamentarium.
