Dentures are removable replacements for teeth that are missing in our mouth and the tissues that surround them. There are two types of dentures – complete and partial. Complete dentures are made after all the teeth are missing on either jaw whereas partial dentures are used when some teeth remain.

Partial removable dentures are for people who miss some of their teeth while some are naturally present. This kind of a set consists of a metal framework that is fixed to your upper jawline or the lower jawline of your mouth. It has clasps to make sure they retain their positions. Partial dentures are made out of clear material for better looking dental aesthetics. Another kind of partial dentures are the fixed ones which are also called permanent bridges. These are made out of crowns and fixed to the gaps between your natural teeth. Also, they can be made out of synthetic material that can be sculpted according to your dental aesthetics to resemble them.
Complete dentures can be of two forms – conventional, immediate. After the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed, which takes about 8 – 12 weeks, conventional dentures can be fixed into our mouth but the immediate dentures can be custom made in advance and can be fixed to your jawline as soon as the natural teeth are removed. The time of healing of gums is not significant enough for this procedure, and it gives an advantage for the patient to not be without teeth for the healing period. However, immediate dentures have a drawback over the conventional ones. Since bones and gums shrink after teeth removal, the immediate dentures might not fit in the mouth of the patient after 8 – 12 weeks, and thus it will require frequent adjustments to fit after the healing is done. Thus the immediate dentures are a temporary solution in comparison to the conventional ones.
