A denture is a removable dental appliance that serves as a replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile.
1. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth in either the upper or lower arch are missing.
2. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. They not only fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, but also prevent other teeth from shifting.
Immediate dentures are generally the preferred treatment prescribed by Dr. Roberts and Dr. Hall because they do not require our patients to ever go without teeth. Immediate dentures are made in advance and are immediately placed after the teeth are removed, thus preventing the patient from having to be without teeth during the healing process. As the tissues shrink and heal, adjustments will have to be made frequently until the healing process is complete. This can take up to three months.
