The use of dentures immediately after tooth removal is a common practice in dentistry especially when tooth extraction causes aesthetic problems. In the field of complete dentures, the procedure for the construction of immediate dentures permits the preparation of prostheses with the characteristics of standard dentures that can be used for a long period of time, promoting the recovery of function and aesthetic appearance without impairing patient comfort. For removable partial dentures, immediate prostheses are usually provisional for use over a short period of time while the extraction site heals. These dentures are usually made with acrylic resin and wrought wires, and in addition to compressing delicate parts of the support system, often do not provide the comfort and security needed by the patient. Immediate removable partial dentures with a metal framework are seldom used for this procedure, probably because of the difficulty in fitting the framework prior to surgery. The authors present a clinical example in which a modification of framework positioning permitted previous fitting of the framework, eliminating the possibility of lack of fit after tooth extraction, which resulted in clinical sucess 6 years later.


In patients that will become completely edentulous, the construction of complete dentures for immediate placement is a routine process that has been used for several decades. Thus, even though the number of patients indicated for this type of service has been reduced over the last decades, this continues to be a procedure that permits the patient to avoid the embarrassment of living without teeth while waiting for the healing of the tissues that will serve as support for the dentures (Zarb et al., 1990).

Similarly, for patients who will become partially edentulous after the extraction of damaged teeth, the construction of a provisional immediate partial denture represents a fundamental clinical measure for the prevention of aesthetic problems (Miller, 1975). In these patients, however, these provisional dentures can also be planned so that they will have a therapeutic function in addition to an aesthetic one, aiding, for example, the vertical and horizontal repositioning of the mandible in cases of loss of vertical dimension and/or when the maximal intercuspal position suggests poor positioning of the articular condyle in the glenoid fossae. These dentures are called therapeutic prostheses (Miller, 1975; Henderson and Steffel, 1979). Provisional partial dentures mainly constructed for aesthetic purposes and therapeutic prostheses must be replaced with conventional dentures during the early stages of rehabilitation. However, they need a retainer system that will guarantee comfortable use by the patient. In general, retention is provided by the intimate contact between the acrylic resin base of the dentures and specific portions of the support system, such as interdental spaces, and by the use of wrought wire clasps (Zoeller, 1973; Miller, 1975). However, despite the care taken in their construction, several problems related to these types of prostheses have been observed in practice; among them is the feeling of insecurity manifested by some patients when the provisional prosthesis becomes unstable, often because of anatomical characteristics of the patient, and exaggerates tissue compression, and conversely, the patient may feel so comfortable with the prosthesis that definitive treatment may be discontinued. This leads to the prolonged and incorrect use of provisional prostheses which may impair the entire prognosis of rehabilitation.

I agree

With what doc raleigh said.
If what you have now is an all plastic temporary partial, chances are you'll experience a more secure fit when you get the partial that has a cast metal framework. This will have clasps that fit and hold to your natural teeth more accurately than your temp.
Some factors that might affect how loose that new partial feels are how tight the clasps are set, and the position of your 5 remaining teeth (which determines the design of your partial.....some partial designs will tend to be more stable, with less movement than other designs)But, in general, cast metal framework partials are going to have less movement in the mouth than a full lower denture
