What are Complete Dentures?
Complete dentures may be used for both upper and the lower jaw and can be either conventional or immediate.
Conventional dentures are made after the teeth have been removed and gum tissue has healed. It generally takes 8 to 12 weeks or more following extraction of the teeth for the conventional denture to be ready for placement. The rate of healing after extractions varies based on several factors, such as proper oral care or any smoking habits. Your dentist will discuss with you what to expect during this healing period.
Immediate dentures are made in advance and can be placed soon after the teeth are removed. With immediate dentures, the teeth will be in place during the healing process. As with any teeth extractions, bone and gum will shrink and need time to heal after the removal of teeth. For that reason, there is a disadvantage with immediate dentures compared to conventional dentures, in that they will require more adjustments to fit properly during the healing process. dental implants affordable dentures dental implant cost
Full and Partial Dentures
Dentures are removable prosthetics that are designed to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available: Complete and Partial Dentures. Complete dentures are needed when all teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth are still present in the mouth.
While dentures may never feel or fit exactly like natural teeth and may take time getting used to, they restore functionality so that you can eat and talk, and they are also natural looking and comfortable.
