Dentures are artificial substitutes used to replace all or some of the lost teeth and adjoining tissues to maintain function, health and esthetics of the tissues. So in simple words dentures help to replace lost teeth.
» Complete Dentures
A complete denture is a dental prosthesis that replaces all the teeth and contiguous oral tissues in order to help restore the function, health and the appearance of the patient. Complete dentures can be made for the lost upper and the lower teeth.
» Immediate Dentures
An immediate denture is constructed before teeth are removed from the patient’s mouth so that the patient doesn’t have to move around with out teeth till the final denture is ready. Constructing immediate dentures involves taking impressions (making copies) of your mouth before the teeth are removed. When your remaining teeth are removed the denture can be inserted immediately.
