What Are Dentures?

Types of Dentures:

Complete Dentures:

  • Full Dentures: Replace all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw.
  • Immediate Dentures: Placed immediately after teeth extraction, allowing you to have teeth while your gums heal.

  • Removable Partial Dentures: Consist of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base, connected by a metal framework. They are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw.
  • Fixed Partial Dentures (Bridges): Permanently attached to the surrounding teeth or dental implants.

  1. Restores Function: Dentures restore your ability to chew and speak properly.

  2. Aesthetic Improvement: They provide a natural-looking solution to replace missing teeth, enhancing your smile.

    • Final Try-In: Once the fit and appearance are confirmed, the final dentures will be fabricated.
