Complete Dentures

What are Complete Dentures?

Complete dentures are a great treatment option for teeth loss. There are 2 types of complete dentures: immediate dentures and conventional dentures. Immediate dentures are made before your teeth are removed and placed on the same day after your teeth are removed. It may take some adjustments to get the perfect fit.. The advantage of immediate dentures is that you are not without teeth during the healing period, which can take up to 6 months. During the healing period, your bones and gums can shrink and your immediate dentures may need to be relined by your dentist for a proper fit. Conventional dentures are made and inserted into your mouth after your teeth have been extracted and the gums and jaw tissues have healed. The dentures resemble the appearance of natural teeth and gums. The dentures can be removed when needed. 

Procedure of Complete Dentures  

First, the health of the gums and soft tissues are inspected. Next, impressions are taken and relationship and alignment between the upper and lower jaw is measured and analyzed to ensure that the final denture secures the perfect bite. Once the complete dentures are prepared, the fit of the dentures will be examined for any necessary final adjustments.
