Dentures have come a long way and now fit better, look better and last longer (when properly cared for) than ever. With dentures, you can improve your eating, speech and comfort while protecting remaining teeth from excess wear and help prevent facial and lip muscles from sinking in.
Complete Dentures vs. Partial Dentures
Dentures are available in two different types. You can get “full” dentures or you can “partial” dentures.
Partial dentures are replacement teeth that are attached to a plastic base that is the color of your gums. Partial dentures are used when there are natural teeth still remaining in the upper or lower jaw. A precision partial denture is removable and has a clasp that attaches to the crowns.
Full dentures, also known as “complete” dentures, can be conventional or “immediate.” Conventional dentures can be placed in your mouth after all your teeth are gone and the gum tissue has started to heal. A typical time frame is between eight and 12 weeks.
Immediate dentures can be placed in your mouth immediately after your teeth are gone. The only catch to immediate dentures is they do tend to require more time to heal and require more adjustments.
