Partial and Full Dentures

A denture is a removable dental appliance that replaces lost teeth and soft tissues. Complete and partial dentures are the two types of dentures available. When all of the teeth are lost, complete dentures are utilized, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.

Complete Dentures

Complete dentures are available in two styles: “conventional” and “instant.” A typical denture is ready for implantation in the mouth approximately eight to twelve weeks after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has begun to heal.

Immediate dentures, unlike traditional dentures, are created ahead of time and can be placed as soon as the teeth are removed. As a result, the wearer is not required to be toothless during the healing process. Bones and gums, on the other hand, shrink over time, especially during the healing period after tooth extraction. As a result, when compared to traditional dentures, immediate dentures require more changes to fit properly during the healing process and should only be used as a temporary remedy until traditional dentures can be created.
