Dentures

Dentures or false teeth are removable replacement for missing teeth.There are two types of dentures, Complete denture and partial denture.

Complete denture which replaces all the teeth on the upper or lower jaw, could be immediate or conventional.

The immediate denture is made before teeth are extracted and it is placed in the mouth as soon as the teeth are extracted. Although this process require more adjustments, the patient  does not have to go without teeth.

Conventional dentures are places once the healing process is completed usually within 3-6  months of extractions. During the healing stage patient receives a transitional or temporary denture. 

The new trend  in dentures are the implant retained dentures.  Patients can get a lot better retension with this type of denture.
