What Are Dentures?

Dentures (also known as false teeth) are not like natural teeth. They don’t have roots for stability and support like real teeth. They are not anchored to the bone or stabilized by it. They are a prosthetic device that replaces missing teeth, but rest on your soft oral tissues (gums).

Dentures can sometimes be a challenge, but those challenges are greatly reduced when consulting an experienced specialist with the skill and expertise to design dentures that look natural and fit comfortably.  

Dentures Are A Flexible Treatment Option


What Are My Denture Options?

There are two types of dentures – complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth still remain. Partial dentures fill in the space created by missing teeth and prevent other teeth from shifting. A complete denture may either be conventional or immediate. Conventional dentures are made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed completely, usually taking 4-6 weeks. Immediate dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after the teeth are removed, thus preventing the patient from having to be without teeth during the healing process.
