What Are Complete Dentures?

Conventional dentures are fixed in the mouth about a month after all the teeth are extracted to allow for proper healing, meaning fewer changes are required. Instant dentures are installed in the mouth as soon as the teeth are removed but may need more adjustments after the healing has taken place. To make this feasible, we take measurements and create models of the patient’s jaws during a preliminary visit.

A benefit of immediate dentures is that the wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period. However, bones and gums can shorten over time, particularly during the period of healing in the first six months after the extraction of teeth. When gums shrink, immediate dentures may require rebasing or relining to fit correctly.

What Are Partial Dentures

A detachable partial denture or bridge usually consists of replacement teeth connected to a pink or gum-coloured plastic base, which is sometimes attached by metal framework that secures the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures are utilised when one or more original teeth remain in the lower or upper jaw.

A fixed bridge restores one or more teeth by putting crowns on the teeth on either side of the space and connecting artificial teeth to them. This “bridge” is then fastened into place. Not only does a partial denture fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, but it also stops other teeth from shifting position. A precision partial denture is detachable and has internal attachments rather than clasps that attach to the nearby crowns. This is a more natural-looking appliance.
