Complete Dentures

There are immediate dentures and conventional dentures, which replace all teeth. Conventional dentures are created after the teeth are removed and the gum tissue has healed. It is ready to be placed 8 to 12 weeks after the teeth are removed.Immediate dentures are made in advance and positioned as soon as the teeth are removed, so you don’t have to be without teeth during healing. Since the bones and gums shrink over time after healing, the immediate dentures are a temporary solution until conventional dentures are made. 

Partial Dentures

A removable partial denture is replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base, connected by a metal framework that holds the dentures in place. They are used when one or more teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. It has a natural appearance and prevents other teeth from changing position.

Dentures vs. Dental Implants

Dentures or implants have many advantages, and the dentist will help you determine which one is right for you:
  • Dentures are a lower cost solution to missing teeth.
  • Dental implants allow you to eat any food you enjoy.
  • Dentures quickly adjust to your teeth.
  • Dental implants help promote healthy bone growth and are held in place by natural bone.
